The Role of the DfE in the adoption process

The Department for Education is the Central Adoption Authority for the UK and therefore has a major role in inter-country adoption.

Thank you for your interest in completing your family through international adoption. You have come through to a Friend of International Adoption Guide page.

As a Friend you have access to over 500 pages of vital information to help you in each step of your adoption journey; from what the social worker asks, to what form do you need to fill in to bring your baby into the country.

You may access this important knowledge immediately for only £49.99 a year by becoming a Friend of International Adoption Guide.

It is easy to become a Friend and begin starting your parenting dreams today by clicking here.

If you need further in depth help please consider booking a one on one consultation to explore your options.

We look forward to welcoming you to the international adoption community.

GiFT Adoption Agency will be opening in the summer 2014 – we are opening a waiting list in May. Keep up to date on our progress here
