‘Meet the Adopter’ webcasts

Our Meet the Adopter series of webcasts are a chance to hear the views and inspiring stories from a range of adopters. Find out what they learned during the process and their advice for prospective adopters.

Meeting the needs of an adopted child

The theme for our national adoption week webcast was ‘Meeting the needs of an adopted child’.

Thanks to our two Dads who talked about the uncertainties, challenges and rewards of parenting adopted children.

Gordon and his wife Anita adopted a 2 year old boy in 2003. Their son had developmental delay and learning disabilities. In 2009 they adopted their daughter who is 10 ½. Bill and his wife have a 13 year old daughter who they adopted in 2004.
