The United Kingdom is a Hague Convention Country. Adoptive placements from the UK are limited to the adoption of first or second level biological relatives. We have worked with the local adoption authorities and UK Central Authority to help place children with aunts and uncles, grandparents and cousins over the past few years. There are no other adoptive placements that are currently allowed under UK law. The children are typically in the UK Foster care system with the intent to place them permanently with their biological relatives in the US. Nightlight estimates the UK adoption process will take between 12 and 24 months from application to completion, depending on issues related to the family situation. The adoption process is typically initiated by the family or foster care program in the UK.
