Welcome to Adoption Mid and West Wales
The Regional Adoption Service for Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire and Powys Local Authorities.
We bring experience and knowledge to benefit those in adoption or thinking about adoption.
Are you interested in adoption?
It doesn’t matter whether you already have children, whether you’re single or a couple, whether you’re married, unmarried or in a civil partnership. We’d love to hear from you!
You’ll have the support and advice of a named Adoption Social Worker from the start of the process of assessment through to placement and beyond.
Support if you were
Many adopted people have questions about their history and want help to understand or to trace their birth family. We can help you!
We want to make sure that children grow up as part of a permanent, loving family from childhood through to adulthood.
The Life Journey archive is an online resource aimed at everyone involved with Adoption in Wales. The resource is aimed at Adopters, Foster Carers, Social Workers and support staff, birth parents, adopted children & young people, as well as all professionals involved in the adoption process. All these groups will find something relevant in this resource. We hope you find it useful!

A true story about the adoption process
Support for birth parents/families
We also work with birth families, preparing them for the adoption of their child. We also help families to prepare later life information for the child.
If you or your partner is a step parent, you may be concerned about the legal rights and responsibilities you have for the children in your family.
Adopting a child from overseas
Adopting a child from another country, it should be a country that you have links with, or knowledge of the culture, history and language.
