We think our house isn’t big enough and we are either going to do a big house extension or move. This will all take some time so we want to get on with our adoption plans now. Is that a problem? House moves and building work are stressful, and don’t often run to plan. You need to sort your housing needs out before you embark on the adoption process. The suitability of your accommodation is assessed, and needs to be safe, with sufficient space for all the people who will live in it.
