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.
Samantha is passionate about adoption, having been adopted herself. Aged 41 and single, living with her mum and dad, she adopted a baby through Early Permanence Placement.
I was adopted at nine months old and wanted to adopt from an early age. I had a great experience of being adopted as a mixed heritage child into a white British family, with three adopted siblings. Every one of us was unique and I never felt any different growing up.
