To adopt means to look after a child as if they were your own. When a child is adopted, he or she gets new parents.
The purpose of adoption is to give a good, lasting home to a child whose biological parents are not able to look after it. In many countries the adopted child has the same legal rights as if the new parents were the biological parents. Please check the internet for the rights of adopted children in your specific country.
