“Being a same-sex couple, we were treated the same way as any other prospective adopters. It was a thoroughly rewarding and life-changing experience. Within 18 months of beginning the process, we got married and had two children.”

“My Peter has embraced family life with both hands, he is funny, smart, kind and adorable… He is now a resilient little boy who loves to snuggle up on the sofa for movie night. He was nearly 3 when he came home to me, he’s now 7, and l’ve had a wonderful 4 years with him.”
