Adoption

Adoption can be another option for families, if you have had a baby diagnosed through ALD newborn screening or are a confirmed carrier and would like to add to your family.

There are many different ways to move forward with this choice, such as fostering a child, open adoption, closed adoption and international adoption. For the purpose of this guide we have not gone into depth, but here are some resources which can help if this is something your family would like to pursue.
