Looking for Adopters........



Raising awareness of adoption is something I am passionate about.  I am an Ambassador for the British Association for Adoption and Fostering and am always looking for ways to talk to people about adoption and ways to raise awareness. I support my Local Authority where I can by speaking to prospective adopters and offering support through the adoption process.  I also seem to have the most amazing sixth sense about who to speak to about it and have had many random conversations with people because I somehow sense they might be interested to talk about the subject.

Tomorrow as part of my ongoing efforts to raise awareness I will be publishing a blog post written by Blackpool Council Adoption Services.  I know that people read my blog who are considering adoption so when I was approached to ask if I would consider publishing a blog post for Blackpool Council to raise awareness of their adoption agency, I felt it would be a good idea to help reach prospective adopters in the north of the UK.  

When discussing the blog post with the Council I particularly asked them to write about the Post Adoption Support support they are able to offer adopters because this is an issue that is becoming more and more prominent in discussions among the adopters I know.  Obviously hosting a blog post does not mean that I am endorsing the agency writing it. I am merely a conduit for information and highlighting an agency that is actively seeking new adopters.

As always I am keen to receive feedback on the posts that I publish so do feel free to comment and let me know what you think.
