Adopting William and Freddie is the best thing we have ever done. They are our children and we would not change a thing.
These powerful words come from Anton and Tony, a couple who recently adopted brothers William and Freddie with help from Family Adoption Links.
Lockdown was life-changing for all of us but especially for Anton and Tony as they brought their new sons William and Freddie home just before the first lockdown last year.
