  • What's new

Insightful new video released

As part of National Adoption Week, we’re delighted to tell you about our recent video chat with Krissi, one of our adopters who has adopted 2 children with additional needs.

Krissi was eager to lift the lid on exactly what it’s like to adopt children with things like Global Development Delay and Autism and encourage others to consider adopting children like hers.

During the chat we covered subjects as diverse as

  • What advice would you give to adopters considering a child with additional needs?
  • Would you describe yourself as ‘brave’?
  • What support have you had?
  • When did you decide to adopt another child?
  • Was the application process different?
  • What are the top 3 things to consider?
  • How were you matched with your child?
  • How did you feel when you first met your child?
