National Adoption Week

alfieNational Adoption Week 2016 is now under way and will run until 23rd October. The theme is embodied by the hashtag #SupportAdoption. As in previous years, the need to find families for some of our most vulnerable children remains at the heart of this year’s event.

However, it is clear that a National Adoption Week that did not also address the difficult realities of adoption today would be doing a disservice to those children and the agencies working on their behalf. National Adoption Week 2016 aims to encompass all aspects of adoption, to demystify and clarify the adoption process, reflect the challenges of adoptive parenting, share individual stories, showcase and signpost to best practice and invite anyone whose life or heart is touched by it to #SupportAdoption.
