Throughout June we are highlighting our need to find adopters who can consider adopting sibling or family groups. At the end of May 2022, 49% of our children needing forever families are in sibling groups of two or higher. Brothers and sisters have such a unique, and powerful bond, so when it comes to our family groups, we always try our best to keep them together.
In our latest blog we are talking about being single and adopting and, to get straight to the point the answer to the question ‘can I adopt if I am single?’ is a resounding yes you can!

The LGBT+ Adoption and Fostering Week is back for its tenth year. Led by New Family Social the campaign looks to encourage more LGBT+ people to consider both adoption and fostering as routes to parenting. Adoption Now have been proud to have supported this year’s campaign and so, as a special episode we felt a great way to finish the weeks celebration would be to speak to Sam who, along with his partner Tom adopted their amazing little boy. In this episode we find out about their adoption journey, and amongst other things, how, as part of the LGBT+ community, they found the adoption process.
Adoption Now are once again proud to be supporting New Family Social’s Adoption & Fostering Week 2022!
On Saturday (26th February) children from across the North-West, who are waiting to be adopted, and prospective adopters came together for a day of fun and finding families. 35 children and 46 sets of adopters were invited to the Disney-themed fun day and given the chance to dress up and enjoy activities such as crafts, soft play, racing cars, and even alpaca walking.
With our 'This Is Our Family' campaign we aim to celebrate the love, the laughter, the tears and the achievements of family life.
