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.
