LGBT+ Adoption Information Evening – Edinburgh
We are hosting an Adoption Information evening specifically for the LGBT+ Community!
LGBT Adoption and Fostering Week is back for 2020 and we are holding various events to celebrate. We shall be holding an Adoption Information Evening on Wednesday 4th March from 6pm to 8pm.
The evening will give you the opportunity to hear from our expert Senior Practitioners as well as from our lovely Adopters as they talk about their journey to parenthood. You will get the opportunity to ask any questions you have all while enjoying tea and cake in a friendly relaxed environment. Sign up for your free tickets here http://bit.ly/LGBTEdinburgh2020
The highlight for those attending previous information evenings has always been the opportunity to hear directly from our parents. Below is a selection of the feedback we have had from previous events:
“We found the info meeting really useful and informative and a great way to make the idea of adoption more of a reality in terms of it being an option for us. We have talked about looking into it for a while now and it was a really good way to get lots of information and meet the team of people from the agency. Hearing the adoptive dads talk about their experiences was definitely the highlight.”
“It was a very informative night and put a lot of thoughts in my head regarding my future, and how to go about setting these into motion. I’m very glad I came along and felt the staff explained everything and the personal stories from the adopters were the highlight. As a result of the event my partner and myself will be filling out an initial request form with Scottish Adoption to move things forward from this point.”
“Edinburgh event last night was so helpful. Great to see so many other people looking to adopt! Hearing the experiences of the gay dads was good, generally I’m really glad we went!”
“We thought the evening was excellent. Very informative and also relaxed so no pressure on anyone to make decisions or to do anything. We both felt very relaxed, and felt we received a really good overview of what the process involves. We especially enjoyed hearing the adopters speak about their own experiences and how they felt throughout the process. To see their obvious joy and happiness was definitely an inspiration to us both. We’ve already completed our initial enquiry form and have had a response from your office.”
