Adoption arrangements in Victoria can only be made by the department or an adoption agency approved by the department.
Records of all adoptions granted in Victoria are for use by adult adoptees, adoptive parents, birth parents, and adult children of adoptees.
We understand that families sometimes experience difficulties and need support to maintain a stable family life.
You can help change a young life for the better. And you don't have to be a superhero or a social worker to do it. You just need to be someone who is willing to care for - and care about - children. All around Victoria, everyday people, from all walks of life, are opening their hearts and their homes to children and young people in need. But many more foster carers are needed.
