We met a few months ago – I know I can’t have children, and we want to adopt. Can we start the process now? If you have only been together for a short time you will need to give yourselves a while longer to get to know each other and how you expect your family life to be before starting the adoption process. All relationships are deeply affected by becoming parents, and yours needs to withstand the changes adoption will bring. If you need more advice on your own situation, please give us a call.
