Sophie an affectionate child, she loves helping take care of Katie with her foster carer and has settled well into the foster home. She has formed a warm relationship with her foster carers and is very fond of the family’s new puppy.
Katie is 11 months old and Sophie’s little sister. Katie was in hospital following birth for some weeks before moving to foster care. She needed a lot of comfort and rocking in the early days, but is now more relaxed and settled and enjoys cuddles from her carers and big sister. She is enjoying food and loves fruit and vegetables she can easily pick up and chew.
Sophie and Katie need a family together, who can provide a nurturing, loving environment with opportunities to continue to make progress. Prospective adopters need to be able to promote and maintain indirect contact with birth mother and Katie’s birth father. Sophie’s birth father is deceased and she will need support to process this as she grows and understands more about her birth family background.
