'Over the last 12 months, we placed thousands more of our most vulnerable children in the loving and permanent homes they so desperately need - but we still need more people from all walks to come forward and adopt.Research published in 2013 by the Department for Education showed that there could be up to 4 million people in England likely to consider adopting or fostering at some point in the future, yet up and down the country there are still thousands of children waiting for a safe, loving home.
Having grown up with over 80 fostered brothers and sisters, I know as well as anyone that what matters in adoptive and foster parenting is not their sexual orientation or gender identity but their ability to love and provide for children in need.
I would encourage anyone who believes they have the skills needed to become either a foster carer or adopter to contact New Family Social without delay, and take the first steps towards the challenge - and joy - of being a parent.'
