What are the laws about single men adopting? I have a sound finanical backing, but I am single. Can single men adopt, who not?

I am not gay, but got on well with my former partners child, so I feel I would make a great dad. Any views will be greatly appreciated?

"A single person, or one partner in an unmarried couple - heterosexual, lesbian or gay - can adopt. Since 30 December 2005 unmarried couples in England and Wales can apply to adopt jointly." is from here.

Hope it helps.

Freddy - You might find more single men with experience of adoption if you post in dadsnet, adoption or lone parents. Good luck!
