Sarah and Martin adopted Caitlyn through Adoption Focus just before her seventh birthday. Here Sarah talks to us about her experiences of adopting an older child and encourages other to also consider a wide range of age groups for adoption.
We never stop in our house!
Most days, I get dragged from bed just after 6am by one of our three sons and the fun begins. It’s organised chaos in our house and it’s great. We’ve been through so much to get to where we are now, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.
My wife and I wanted a family and we spent a lot of money trying. I just thought I’d never be a mother. One day after another failed attempt and a broken heart my wife said, “Can we stop now?” I agreed.
