Your adoption stories

What is it like to adopt? How will I find being an adoptive parent? What will my new family be like?

Here, we’ve gathered together some adopter stories so you can hear the first-hand experiences of people like you who have adopted. All our stories are real but some names and identities have been changed to protect anonymity. Some photographs are posed by models.
