Here’s more about ongoing contact with birth family…
Letterbox is a service offered to all children that have been adopted via the six north Wales authorities to stay in touch with their birth families via letters.
The adoptive parents usually do this on behalf of the child/children that has been adopted, allowing children to retain links to key family members.
Letterbox contact starts after the adoption order has been granted in the agreed month and continues until the child turns 18.
Keeping in touch with birth family members is a positive experience for adopted children. Find out more about keeping in touch using our Letterbox service.
Communicating with your child’s birth family can seem daunting, but it can be a hugely positive experience for everyone. We have plenty of advice and guidance for keeping in touch with birth families.
If you’re interested in adoption, need additional support, or just want to ask us some questions, we’d love to hear from you.
You can also speak to an adoption worker for an informal chat, and we can then send you an information pack.
