Proud to promote LGBTQ+ Fostering and Adoption Week

If you’re from the LGBTQ+ community and considering adoption you’ll enjoy listening to this insightful interview with Andy and Alex who adopted their daughter 18 months ago.

As a mixed race, gay couple, they talk about their journey to parenthood and encourage people in a similar situation to go for it.

In the chat we ask them…

– When did you decide you wanted to adopt?

– How did you start the process?

– How did you find the process?

– What was the matching process like?

– What criteria did you have when looking for your child?

– What did you do in the first few weeks?

– How did you find taking the introductions slowly?

– What was the reaction from your friends and family?

– How long have you had your daughter home?

– How were the first few weeks?

– What have the highlights been so far?

– How is family life?

– Do you have friends in the community who have adopted/want to adopt having seen you go through the process?

– What advice would you give to fellow LGBTQ+ people thinking of adoption?

– Do you have any hints and tips?

– Is there anything else you would like people to know?
