Our family has leaned on the people who work at St Andrew’s Children’s Society a number of times and we are so grateful that we can call on their knowledge and experience to help us guide our boys through the difficulties they experience. We are aware that we are likely to be leaning on them even more heavily as our boys navigate their way through their tricky teenage years.
In this series of videos you can hear from Robert who has gone through the adoption process with St Andrew’s Children’s Society. He talks about his experiences of adoption and offers advice to prospective adopters.
Robert made this recording in 2014. He is now a fully qualified social worker in Glasgow and still very much a part of his adopted family.
Robert, adopted at the age of 8, gives his initial thoughts about his experience.
Robert continues his conversation about how he fitted in with his new adoptive family, following his earlier experiences in foster care.
The positive experience of adoption when Robert was adopted and how his St Andrew’s Children’s Society social worker helped him throughout the process.
Robert talks honestly about his teenage and school years. His behaviour and coming to terms with being adopted. How his mum and dad helped to smooth the process through difficult times, with love and understanding.
