There are many sibling groups waiting for adoption.

Keeping siblings together is really important for a number of reasons:

*A brother or sister may be the only person who understands and shares their experiences and can help them make sense of their new lives.
* Brothers and sisters who have been through hard times with their birth families have formed a strong,bond: they’ve been the stability in each other’s lives.

If you could offer a forever home, please get in touch.

If you are pregnant you need the flu jab now.

The flu jab is the safest way to protect you and your baby against flu.

Pregnancy naturally weakens the body’s immune system and as a result flu can cause serious complications for you and your baby.

You may be less able to fight off infections, increasing the risk of becoming ill as a result of flu.

Adopters Reuben and Emma adopted 2 girls.

"When we found out that we weren't able to have children we discussed whether we should have IVF or consider adopting. We went along to an adoption information evening to find out more.

The adoption team were very friendly and knowledgeable and answered every question that we had. As you can imagine, there were quite a few with such a big decision to make.

We decided that adoption was the right choice for us and began the assessment process. It was a long and in depth process which we were supported through every step of the way by our social worker.

Finding out we had been approved as adopters was the best feeling in the world! But nothing could describe how we would feel when we actually adopted our girls. Ecstatic doesn't even come close!

The girls have been with us for a year now and have completed our family. We have had our ups and downs over the last year but the positives and good times completely outweigh the hiccups we had along the way.

We are well settled into a routine and the girls are integrated into our wider family. Our parents are thrilled to be grandparents and have a fantastic bond with the girls.

Adoption really is the best thing we have ever done!"
