I have been considering applying to adopt.
I have had a few long term relationships (I'm late thirties) but never met anyone I wanted to settled down with and start a family.
I'm not interested in sperm donation etc.
I would like to apply to adopt, but as a single person. However my parents are no longer alive, I do have 2 sisters, but they live a fair distance from me (I don't want to move for lots of reasons and sisters don't live near each other either).
Do you think my application would be considered? I think I tick the other boxes, but it is sad to think that a child that has had a troubled start would be placed with me and not have any of my other family around - and definitely no grandparents. I can't take a sibling group, but I would be happy to facilitate an adoptee having a relationship with any siblings/half-siblings if that was considered a good idea.
