Take a shine to these children in care

A campaign is under way to find a loving home for children in council care waiting for adoption.

These youngsters’ circumstances mean that they often have to wait longer to find a new family.

This can be because they are a little older, or they are brothers and sisters who need to stay together, or that they have non-white ethnic heritage. It may also be because they have additional needs, due to significant developmental delays.

These children are looking for a family where they will be nurtured in a loving environment so that they can reach their full potential, thanks to a campaign called Let Them Shine.

Anita Cranmer, Buckinghamshire Council’s Cabinet Member for Education and Children’s Services, said: ‘Although they may have had a difficult start in life, the children in our care that sometimes wait longer to find an adoptive family have their lives ahead of them and are so full of potential – all they need is a couple or single person that can offer them the love and stability they need to grow and flourish.

‘Being a parent is incredibly rewarding, but it comes with its challenges, too. That’s why our adoption service provides post-adoption support that will always be there for you.

‘If you feel that you could give a child their new family life and their new future, don’t hesitate to find out more about starting your adoption journey.’
