Support to Birth Families

If your child has been adopted, we can support you with any specialist advice and counselling you need. We can also support you in maintaining (indirect) contact with the adoptive family through our Letterbox Service, which involves an exchange of letters between the adopters and the birth family, on an annual basis. We understand that adopted children benefit from understanding their family history.

This service enables recent, up-to-date information about birth families to be shared with adoptive parents and communicated sensitively with the child. 

Knowing that their birth families are still interested and care about them can significantly help with a child’s development and mental wellbeing. Birth families can also be reassured that the child is happy and secure.
