Help us to spread adoption message
2:10pm Friday 17th August 2012 in Letters
MY husband and I adopted our little girl, Elle, over five years ago. The joy and happiness she has brought us is immeasurable, and I wanted to do something in order to help raise awareness about adoption and how amazing it can be.
So I became an adoption champion for the charity, the British Association for Adoption & Fostering (BAAF). Adoption champions are people like you and me who have an adoption connection.
We help raise awareness about adoption in all sorts of ways from mentioning National Adoption Week on our social media sites to giving small talks to share our experiences with potential adopters.
Are you an adoptive parent or perhaps you are adopted yourself?
Would you like to help spread the message about adoption to help find loving, safe and permanent homes for vulnerable children who need to be adopted? If so, please visit nationaladoption week.org.uk/adoptionchampions to find out more information on how you can help and to sign up. It’s really easy. There is even a video to watch where I explain all about being an adoption champion.
Help make a difference to a child’s life – become an adoption champion.
