One of the best ways to inspire people to adopt is by sharing success stories of those that have been there and done it.
Join in with National Adoption Week on 12 – 18 October by listening to Wales’ first ever adoption podcast, Truth be told: Adoption stories.
Truth be told: Adoption stories, is a podcast from the National Adoption Service that aims to be an informative resource that features a group of adopters discussing their shared experiences together.
The podcast is available in both Welsh and English and features 10 adopters from across Wales discussing a different adoption topic each week - from the first steps to postadoption support. Stories range from same sex adopters and single adopters to older adopters and sibling adopters. You can listen to the podcast here: www.adoptcymru.com/podcast
You can also register for a lunchtime webinar to hear more honest stories and tips from adopters and adoption workers across Wales: https://bit.ly/3d3rLmp.
