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.
Kate and Liz live at home with their two adopted children and dog Bob.
This is their story.
"We met at an adoption support group which we attended because we had each adopted a child with previous partners,” said Kate
“After our relationships ended we started seeing each other and then lived together as a family of three with Liz’s little boy Aran while my son lived with my previous partner. We decided we wanted to adopt again and enquired with the council’s adoption team.
