Andrew and Ben have adopted 2 children. They adopted their first son 4 years ago when he was just 3 years old and their daughter joined the family last year when she was 18 months old. The family enjoy an active family life, with both children enjoying an outdoor lifestyle.
Ben says: “Our family is the most important thing in the world to us. When we adopted our son, everything changed. Becoming parents overnight is a little daunting, but we had fantastic support from our social worker. We were in love with him from the moment we met. There have been challenges – being a parent is challenging – but we deal with everything together as a family. We always knew that we wanted more than one child, and as soon as we felt the time was right we approached the adoption agency again to be assessed for a second child. Our daughter came home last year and we now feel like a complete family unit. Live is exhausting, wonderful, fun and everything we could ever have wished for!”
