A couple who adopted an eight year old girl who was in the care of Blackburn with Darwen Council after meeting her at a special ‘activity day’ for children and prospective parents have spoken about their experience.
The couple, who only want to be known as John and Anna, describe adopting their daughter as a ‘life affirming experience’ and have urged other people who are interested in adopting a child to consider attending an activity day.
You can hear their story below.
Activity days are organised by Blackburn with Darwen, Trafford, Stockport, Tameside and Cheshire East councils throughout the year, offering potential adopters the chance to meet youngsters on the adoption register in a relaxed, informal setting. The next event is due to take place in February 2015.
