4,000 children need families


As an adoptive mother I know how amazing it is to be able to become a parent through adoption.

Adopting my daughter has been the most fulfilling and rewarding experience of my life.

So I would like to thank everybody who contacted the British Association for Adoption and Fostering (BAAF) to find out more about adoption.

National Adoption Week may be over for another year, but there are around 4,000 children in care across the UK every year who need to find a permanent family through adoption.

If you think you may be able to offer a vulnerable child a loving new home, please visit www.nationaladoptionweek.org.uk which is available all year round with information and advice to help you.
