LGBT Adoption and Fostering Information EveningPosted on 01-03-2017 by Adam Carver
WHEN: Monday March 27th
WHERE: Birmingham LGBT
After the success of last year’s LGBT Adoption and Fostering Information Evening, Birmingham Council Adoption & Fostering Services return to host another information evening at Birmingham LGBT. Have you considered adopting or fostering a child? Unsure about how to go about this? What the process involves? Are you a single person or a couple with a spare bedroom who can provide a safe, loving and stimulating environment for a child or sibling group?
Book now for our free information event to find out more about fostering or adopting with Birmingham. Join members of the Adoption and Fostering Services team to hear about the fostering process and ask any questions. We will also be joined by couples and single adoptive parents who will share their experiences having been through the process of adoption and fostering. There will be opportunity at the end to chat to the carers, adopters and staff too.
“In 2002 the law changed that included the provision for same sex couples to foster and adopt. This is recent history and an important milestone for the LGBT community. Children need love, support and a nurturing environment and the support networks available through the LGBT community ensure that your experience of fostering is as rewarding as possible not only for the child or children in your care, but also for you as a foster parent. As a gay couple we have to date fostered two children from a two month old to a nine and a half year old.”
Heartfelt words from foster carers David and Brian who also speak very enthusiastically about the training and ongoing support they have enjoyed as carers for Birmingham City Council.
This is a free event open to all, in order to help us manage numbers please confirm your attendance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
