Jayne and Billy always wanted to have a family of their own. They tried IFV, but soon realised this wasn’t suitable for them.
“It actually took us several years to realise we wanted to adopt and it happened at the best time for us. We had always been surrounded by nieces and nephews and wanted to complete our family unit. We went along to an information session and the process from start to finish took just over 12 months.”
They originally only wanted to adopt one child. However, after seeing a few sibling profiles, they knew they could provide the love and stability for siblings.
“The process was stressful at times and it had a lot of ups and downs, but as a couple it brought us closer together. The training is intense and a real eye-opener to some of the scenarios that could happen after we had adopted, but it prepared us well and we were ready to welcome the boys into our home.”
“Adoption in Merseyside were so supportive and were always there when we needed them. We have attended several after-adoption sessions including Thera play and Therapeutic Parenting training which was really interesting and the boys have settled in so well.”
“Every day is a learning curve, the boys have come on leaps and bounds and it has changed our lives for the better. I would advise anyone looking to adopt to research beforehand but just be honest throughout the process.”
