We joined Adoption UK as recommended by Sandra. It is a great resource as there are training courses, a forum and other useful things online and in print. We also subscribe to the magazine version and online version of ‘Children who wait’. I’ve mentioned this before but if you have not heard of it, it contains profiles of children who are looking to be adopted. (I can’t remember if I mentioned this magazine, I think I have so apologies if you have heard of this before) It’s very sad and horrible as you feel like you are shopping. However, looking at these profiles makes the whole process real and made us realise that race is not such a big thing after all.
If you are going through the adoption process, I thoroughly recommend joining Adoption UK.
