Find out more about adoption

HAVE you ever thought about adopting and wanted to find out more?
If so, now is a good time to take that important first step. It is National Adoption Week November 4-10 and over the next few weeks local authorities and voluntary adoption agencies across the UK will be holding special information events. It’s a great opportunity to learn all you need to know about adopting – how the adoption process works; what support is available and who the kinds of children are who need a ‘forever family’.
Every year, there are over 4,000 children throughout the UK who need to be adopted and there is a desperate shortage of adopters. The British Association for Adoption & Fostering (BAAF) is asking if you have room in your life and heart to become a parent to a child or sibling group. It may sometimes be challenging, but many adoptive parents have told BAAF, it is the most amazing, rewarding thing they have ever done. People from all walks of life are needed, so please, take that important first step and find out more about adoption.
