As we move towards longer days and hopefully sunnier weather, I wanted to wish you all a very happy Easter.
Although many of our family and friends are still being impacting by Covid, it does feel that we are slowly and gradually adapting to a new normal. Following recent advice from Welsh Government , the office at 28 Park Place is open to staff and visitors alike. For our families who have adopted and those going through the process of adoption , increasingly we are now meeting with you face to face.
We are having monthly outdoor adopter meet ups with a number of successful meetings over the February half term and more recently in March. We have found that our speaker led support groups worked well on line, and we’ll continue to offer this hybrid approach to support.
For those interested in becoming parents through adoption, we would particularly like to hear from you if you are considering adopting brothers and sisters so that they can remain together, or children with more complex medical or other needs where the chances of finding an adoptive family become harder in particular children up to and over the age of 5. We hold information sessions on line to hear more about the children who are waiting so please look out for information on our website or twitter or phone 02920 667007 or leave a message via our website www.adoptionwales.org . We would love to hear from you
This year is our 80th anniversary year and to mark the family community that makes up the entirety of St. David’s, from our families who have adopted right through to our staff and Trustees, we will be holding summer events for our St. David’s family in West and South Wales – details to follow shortly. I so look forward to seeing many of you then.
Adoption is immensely rewarding and joyous but it can bring its own challenges too. We pride ourselves on offering support whenever that is required – even if you just wanted a one off discussion over the phone so please don’t hesitate to contact us either via the phone number above or via our website.
Thankyou as ever for your support of St. David’s – through listening to what is important to you we will endeavour to make our 80th anniversary year a very special one.
