Welcome to Adopters Stories hosted by the Adoption & Fostering Podcast
All adoption stories are unique and all adoption stories represent the coming together of different experiences, motives, hopes and aspirations. They often don’t go to plan and many adoptive parents discover that their lives are taken in directions that they never anticipated.
In this, the first Episode, Clare tells her story, with her husband Steve they adopted their son Jake in 2011 when he was 7 and a half years old.
In this episode Paul shares his story of adoption of two boys in 2015 of two boys with his husband.
Of course, there are other voices in adoption and we’re not presuming to speak for them and as we’re based in the UK all the adopters that we speak to have adopted through the UK's statutory adoption system. If any of the stories in future episodes are different we’ll say.
