Polly Talks… is a series of podcasts where Polly Cowan, one of Scottish Adoption’s Practice Managers, talks to Foster Carers, Adopters, Therapists and industry leaders about various aspects of the adoption world.


Back in 2016 we asked Stevan and Denis to record a video talking about their journey to adopting a sibling group of two boys. We have taken the audio from that video and turned it onto a podcast. If you have ever thought about adopting a sibling group so give this a listen.

During an honest and frank conversation between brothers and sisters, our Adoption Ambassadors respond to Scottish Adoption’s commitment to #KeepThePromise by creating more families for siblings and they share their view on the National recruitment trend #FamiliesForSiblings


In the following podcasts you will hear more about the services we offer, for free, to all of our adopters. From the moment you get in touch with us to the day your family is complete and beyond. First up Giles talks about the lifelong support available here at Scottish Adoption and in the second podcast Amanda and Karen talk to Stevan about his adoption journey to parenthood.


Same-sex couple Damien and Clinton talked to Louise about their journey to becoming parents with Scottish Adoption. These episodes talks about their journey to fatherhood.
