Hi, we are in the process of adopting a little boy we have been fostering for 2 years. He has complex health needs, including a heart condition that will need several more open heart operations throughout his life.
His mother originally lived with us as a mother & baby placement so unfortunately now knows where we live and where our birth daughter goes to school. His birth Mother is not happy with us adopting him and has made plans to abduct him. Police and social services are aware of this.
We now don't feel safe and are considering moving house. In order to move house we will incur legal costs and estate agents fees of approx £15,000. We will also have to take a drop in salary as currently my husband has a good job. He can't move within his job without taking a cut in salary. So considering a lifestyle change.
I can't work to supplement his salary cut, as I need to be home for our little boy due to his health needs.
We will not be entitled to adoption allowance as it will be based on his current salary.
We feel we are making a lot of sacrifices for this little boy whom we love very much and want to be apart of our family.
My question is, do any of you adopters receive a finance package for your adopted children with additional needs? If so how do we go about getting it?
