Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
How old is the child and where are the parents?
So both parents are still alive?
Do you intend to adopt in the Philippines?
is your wife willing or able to move to the Philippines for say a year?
When will she receive it?
My apologies - another answer lost to the ether I fear
Yes this is possible IF such private adoptions are legal in the Philippines.
If Family adoptions such as this are allowed there then you should have no difficulty in going through the process.
You have taken the correct step in obtaining the information pack and the next step will be to contact you local Children Services to start the process.
This is not a swift process I am afraid.
The other step you should take is to make enquiries with the authorities in the Philippines to ensure that the process will go smoothly there
It may be helpful if your wife does this in person once her Permit is through
Please ask if you need further details
