Besides adoption, couples and families can also consider fostering. It is a way of providing family life for children whose parents are unable to care for them for various reasons. A foster family encourages children to grow and fulfill their potential until situations are favourable for them to return home. We provide assessment for couples/individuals who are keen to foster as referred by MSF.

1. Self-Assessment Test
“Am I ready to adopt?”
Before you decide to adopt a child, it is essential to consider if you are ready to take on the responsibilities and challenges that will come along with it.
Issues to consider before adopting a child
- Adoptive parenthood is different from biological parenthood but can be as successful and satisfying for children and adoptive parents
- Adoption is about providing for a child’s individual needs, and cannot be considered as a means of providing company for a lonely spouse, another child in the family, or as a way to solve other problems.
- If you have experienced the grief and loss associated with infertility, it would be advisable to come to terms with these feelings first, and then consider whether seeking to adopt a child is the right answer
- The welfare and interests of the child should be upheld in your ultimate decision
- Not all Home Study Reports will be found favourable upon completion of the Home Study Assessment
- People in the community sometimes have a limited understanding of adoption and may make insensitive comments about children who have been adopted and adoptive families

2. Home Study Report
A Home Study Report is written by an Assessor and accredited by the Ministry of Social and Family Development. The Assessor will conduct an independent assessment of a couple or single applicant/s suitability to adopt. The Home Study Report is recognized by the Ministry of Social and Family Development and internationally as a valid document.
This interview is conducted by appointment only. The fee for the Home Study Report set by the Ministry of Social and Family Development is $1500, and is non-refundable.
