Some of you may have noticed that we won’t be hosting our usual ‘First Wednesday’ adoption information events during March.
Instead, SFCS is joining other independent adoption agencies across England to celebrate Big Adoption Day on Wednesday 16th March.
On that day, SFCS and many other independent adoption agencies, will be opening their doors simultaneously to enquiring adopters, hosting a national adoption information evening.
We want to reinforce the message that adopters continue to be needed for our most vulnerable children in the care system.
If you’re considering adoption, why not come along to one of our Big Adoption Day information events? We’ll be hosting two events on 16th March – one in Milton Keynes and one in Peterborough.
As with all our information evenings, our Big Adoption Day events are open to anyone who may be considering building a family through adoption. Wherever you are in the thought process, whatever your stage of readiness, we will address the questions you have.
The events will begin with a presentation by one of our experienced social workers, who will explain the adoption process and what you can expect from SFCS. You will then hear from one of our adopters, who will share their own experiences of becoming an adoptive parent.
You’ll be invited to ask any questions you may have throughout the evening, but you may also speak in private to a social worker if you need to.
The Big Adoption Day events are extra special, as we’ll also be unveiling a brand new animation produced by adopted children for prospective adopters. It’s called “What young adopted people want prospective adopters to know”, and provides a special insight into what it is like to be adopted, helping prospective adopters to better understand the needs and wants of adopted children.
There aren’t many decisions that will change your life forever; adopting a child is one of them. We hope you’ll join us on 16th March – we’re here for you.
You can help spread the word about Big Adoption Day via all the usual social media channels – check out our Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn pages, and look out for the hashtags #bigadoptionday and #werehereforyou
