Children across North Yorkshire and the Humber are waiting for permanent, loving homes and we’re asking for people to come forward to be adopters.

In North Yorkshire we always have a need for adopters for our children who are waiting for their permanent family – especially for children aged three and above or sibling groups of two or more.

Jo and Mandy are the proud parents of two adopted boys, who have found they learnt more about themselves through adoption than they ever thought possible. Jo tells their story:

Being in a same sex couple we had always considered adoption as an option, especially Mandy – she had always wanted to adopt, and when it turned out that I couldn’t have children anyway, adopting was the natural thing for us to do.
