Mothers with Son

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.

As part of National Adoption Week 2018 the head of One Adoption West Yorkshire, Sarah Johal appeared on Leeds TV to spread the word, that more adopters are needed across the region to provide permanent loving homes for children in care. 

Bradford adopters, Richee and Vicki, who adopted their son Roman four years ago, also appeared on Leeds TV and explained brilliantly about what adopting is really like.

We adopted, could you?

There are currently 180 children across West Yorkshire who are waiting for permanent, loving homes due to a shortage of people coming forward interested in adoption.

Current statistics show that the number of children in Yorkshire who have a plan for adoption outnumber those people coming forward to be adoptive parents by three to one, with the majority being older children or sibling groups of two or more.
