“Getting to know you” event branded a huge success
My boys and I became a family on 4th June 2021.
My boys and I became a family on the 4th June 2021, I was 39 and they were 7 and 5. They had been in care for just a little over two years. We live together, with two dogs, along the East coast where we can be found eating ice cream in the summer or splashing in chilly seas in the autumn and winter.
For me, adoption seemed as natural as having birth children. Although I wasn’t told I couldn’t have children through birth until my late thirties it had never truly been my first route to motherhood. Even as a child I imagined adoption as the way I would have my family. Because I had always seen adoption as an equally natural way to become a mummy.
