You might remember that a couple of months or so ago I blogged about our support group and the visit by the lead member of our local council for children and how he had listened to our stories and the problems encountered locally for adoptive parents. We did offer some solutions, some easier to implement than others.
One of the key issues that we have as a group, is that we have no voice, no one is listening to us, learning from our experiences. No-one is attempting to make other lives easier based in what we are living. Each of us, is having to battle the same things with health, schools, post adoption support and therapeutic support. But surely we shouldn’t have to be having the same battles, surely something should be in place to inform these areas.
This weekend came confirmation of something that had been talked about as a response to our discussion that evening. An adoptive parents forum! Have a look and see what you think…this is the post that the lead member for children blogged in Fri…
I can’t help but be positive. This could be the start of something good happening, and alongside the little group that we have looking at life story work, there are good things happening in our corner of the adoption world. Fingers crossed that it brings forth good things!
