Allow people over the age Eighteen to be lawfully adopted
The Government should give adults the right to be lawfully adopted by the people they regard as their parents. Adoption shouldn’t be reserved for children in their adolescent years. Parenthood extends after the age of eighteen and this should be recognised in adoption law.
Only children under 18 can be legally adopted and, unfortunately, many do not realise until it is too late. For most, it is not about financial or legal benefits, it is about the formalising emotional connection and legally recognising that parent & child, although not related by blood, are family.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
