Adoption Week 2015

19/10/2015

The theme of National Adoption Week 2015 is ‘Too Old at Four?’ Older children waiting to be adopted are often likely to be sibling groups or have additional needs and there is currently a shortage of adoptive parents coming forward for these children. Anne from Belfast, an adoptive mother of older children shares her story here.  http://www.adoptionandfostering.hscni.net/news-events/national-adoption-week-2

As part of National Adoption Week, tonight on BBC One at 9.00 pm will be the first of a two part programme ‘Find Me a Family’.

The programme aims to give viewers a better understanding of the challenges facing social care teams and what adoption and foster care means in Northern Ireland.
