I wanted to explain to you why I am so passionate about adoption, fostering and to make sure you are getting the best information to care for your child.
I realise now I was not well prepared for parenting or adopting and as a result I made so many mistakes. while no parent is perfect I know I could have done better if I had known more.
As a result I would love to be able to support you any way I can in your journey to bringing up your child to be a positive, confident adult. This video explains more.

To help you survive the summer holidays I wanted to give you a chance to do some activities with your child together. As you know I am a huge proponant of play and leisure as a way to increase communication, bonding and attachment from your child. So we have arranged a great opportunity to do so!
We have a wonderful chance to spend positive time with your child over the summer holiday, during the week of Monday 26th to 31st July. We have sessions with a range of activities for you and your child to do together. This is targetted at children aged, or functioning at 1 to 8, but is open to anyone, involved with adoption or fostering.
Sessions are only half an hour long so will keep your childs attention. Attend for all or them if you can but do come and join us on:
Monday 26th July at 11.30 AM We have Julie Kowaleski, music therapist, in Canada leading a music session utilising things you have in the house (unless you already have musical instraments to hand!)
