Big Adoption Day

Are you Ready to Adopt a New Life?

 

It’s Big Adoption Day 2018 on Wednesday 21st March.

 

Adoption can offer children who may have had a difficult start the opportunity to live happy, healthy and fulfilling lives with their new families. It can also give the adoptive parent the chance to begin or complete their family. 

 

One of Bedford Borough Council’s adoptive parents said: “I know that adoption can bring real challenges and I don’t know what the future will hold.  But what we do have is incredible pride at how these two little boys are overcoming their difficult beginnings, and every milestone met brings us so much happiness.  They may not be of our blood, but they are 100% our sons.  We are truly blessed.

 

Bedford Borough Council is holding an informal drop-in adoption information event on Wednesday 21st March from 9.30am-3pm at Borough Hall, Bedford for people who are considering adoption. There is an also an adoption information evening on Wednesday 4th April from 6.15pm-8.30pm at Borough Hall, Bedford.

 

Cllr Shan Hunt, Portfolio Holder for Children’s Social Care at Bedford Borough Council, said: “Lots of people are able to adopt and we are interested in your skills and capacity to parent, not your status. You can be single, over 40 and you don’t need to own your own home to consider adoption. We need people with stability, love and resourcefulness who can offer unconditional love and support to a child, or children, for whom adoption is the plan.”
