The Children

Most of the children in England waiting for adoption are under four. Over half are waiting to be adopted with at least one brother or sister. The children come from a range of different ethnic and religious backgrounds, and some may have additional needs. What they all have in common is that they have had a difficult start in life and have experienced neglect and abuse before being removed from their birth families to the care system.

In the last three years (2020-23), CCS Adoption found families for 76 children. Their average age was just under three years old. Read these profiles of some children who are typical of the children waiting (these are just example stories, these are not children that are currently available for adoption).
