The London Borough of Barking and Dagenham Adoption Service are calling for potential adoptive parents from across Essex.
Thirty children are waiting to find a home and the Adoption Service is holding a number of informal open information sessions where you can meet members of the adoption team and an adoptive parent and have all of your questions answered.
The 30 children include siblings such as siblings, Sophia (7) and Eddie (5)* who are full siblings and are happy children. They are very close and enjoy playing together. They are normal kids who need a loving family.
*Names have been changed to protect the children’s identities.
Can you make a difference?
We need parents who are able to offer a child the love, care, time and understanding within a framework of boundaries and consistency to meet these children’s needs into adulthood and beyond.
There are many myths surrounding adoption; these information sessions provide an opportunity for you to find out the answers to any questions you may have. Successful adoptive parents will be on hand to give their points of view.
The upcoming event will be held on:
Saturday 5 July 2014, 2pm to 4pm, Broadway Theatre, Barking, IG11 7LS
