Members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community are being invited to find out about adopting a child through One Adoption.
One Adoption West Yorkshire and One Adoption North and Humber are taking part in this year’s national LGBT+ Adoption and Fostering Week (4 – 10 March) organised by New Family Social – to remind everyone that being Lesbian, Gay, Bi or Trans is not a barrier to adopting a child.
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.
After trying for a family for 10 years Kathryn and James adopted siblings and have never looked back
We always wanted more than one child and James really wanted a daughter, but we didn’t really discuss adopting siblings. We had spent 10 years trying for a family and had talked about adoption for a few years before attending an adoption information event and starting the assessment process. Six months later an adoption social worker told us about two sisters aged two and three and asked if we would be interested. I said yes!
