Adoption Week campaign launched

 
Created on 18/10/2021 @ 10:01
An appeal has been launched to find local people to adopt children who have been in care for a long time.

Adoption Mid and West Wales is using National Adoption Week (18 - 23 October) to highlight the opportunities for people to adopt older children.

"There are 119 children currently waiting to be adopted in Wales, with 29 of those children waiting for nine months or more," said a spokesperson.

"For boys, sibling groups, children over three, and those with complex early histories, the wait to find a forever home can last a long time.
 
"But a new campaign launched during National Adoption Week (18th-23rd October) wants to change all that by debunking the myth that babies and girls are easier to adopt."
 
National Adoption Service is asking for people to share the moments that made their family @nas_cymru #ChooseFamily to encourage others to choose to adopt.
