S.'s Story

"Becoming parents to our two children has been a really rewarding and positive experience. We wanted to adopt a sibling group as we always envisaged that we would have two children. We both have good relationships with our siblings and could not imagine growing up without them.

Our children were 3 years old and 2 years old when they came to us having had numerous moves. They were full of energy and it was a real shock to our system, but as time has gone on, they have turned our house into a real family home.

There are of course challenges, and we have had to really alter expectations and learn to be therapeutic parents but we have really seen the benefits. Our children are funny, caring and a joy to be with despite their difficult start in life."
