We Are Family is a peer to peer support community by adopters, for adopters. We’re there for parents throughout their adoption journey.

“It is my strong belief that the support we give should be on offer to all adopters. There should be a network of families ready to welcome them with open arms as they take decisive steps towards caring for some of the youngest and most vulnerable in our society. Because all new parents need support. We all need to belong. To a family – to a community. Our provision is a necessary one.”
