Toby

Toby is 22 years old and came into foster care when he was 12 years old. He stayed with his foster carers until he left home at the age of 19.

“My foster parents are amazing and I love them to bits. When I first moved in with them, I was not in a good way. I know that I was not the easiest teenager at times, and I sometimes treated them badly, but they never stopped caring for me and never let me down. They knew my background and why I behaved the way I did and they really helped me to get through it. I left home 3 years ago, but I still call them all the time – they are still who I turn to when I need to talk to someone”.

Siobhan is a single adopter with one child

The funny thing is that I thought I would not be able to adopt as I am single, but how wrong I was! My social worker was brilliant and took me through the assessment process at my own pace. She also helped me to really think about what sort of child I wanted. Millie has been with me now for 3 years – she was 5 when she arrived. I have never looked back, and cannot imagine my life without her. That’s not to say that there aren’t any challenges – there are – but you always know that your social worker is there to help you. I love my daughter, and my life is so much happier for having her in it.

Nick and Sarah have three adopted children

Posted by

We have three children, all adopted. They are inquisitive, curious, argumentative, energetic bundles of mischief. They are also beautiful, angelic, adorable and can even be well-behaved at times! They are just like any other children and their moods and needs change with the wind direction. What doesn’t change, though, is our love for them. Before we adopted, I admit that I was not sure how I would take to the role of adoptive father. We were both nervous about doing the right things and looking after them properly but, as each of our children came into our lives and added their own colour and character to our family life, it became the most natural thing in the world to be their forever mummy and daddy. We couldn’t love our three gorgeous little ones more and helping them to grow, develop and tackle the challenges that life brings is the most joyful and rewarding experience of both of our lives.
