We are looking for adoptive parents who can accommodate children aged over three and for sibling groups who want to stay together.

We also need families who could parent a child with disabilities.

All our children have had a rough start and deserve a loving and stable family life.

They need a home where they can have fun, learn to laugh again and just be children.

They will need consistency, boundaries and unconditional support to develop to their full potential.

There are a lot of myths about adoption.

Adopters can be:

  • Childless couples
  • Couples with children
  • Single people with or without children
  • People over 40
  • People who are gay or lesbian

However, you do need to genuinely want to be a parent and you will have to enjoy having a child or children in your home.

You need to have ‘stickability’ and be able to go the extra mile.
