Adoption

Remember that

  • the permission of the Adoption Board is required for adoption
  • you do not need permission for a step-parent adoption.

If you wish to adopt a child in Finland or from abroad, you should register for statutory adoption counselling. This is provided by community's social service authorities and the adoption agencies of Save the Children.
