Just starting out in the South West
Hi. My partner and I are just beginning to dip our toes into the adoption process. We are attending our first drop in session at the council this week and have already spoken to Families For Children. We already have a birth daughter who is 9 so we are being incredibly cautious but are also excited. We've talked about this for a number of years so it feels a little unreal to be getting proactive.
Would love to hear from anyone with experience of Cornwall Council or FFC as we understand the choice of agency is important. Also interested to hear if anyone else has been given the impression that LGBT couples tend to have the more difficult children to place offered to them? Heard a little something about 'ideal heterosexual couples' and was a little shocked - maybe I am naive!
