Adoption Shared

Alongside learning from the experts via our WAF Talks programme, We Are Family membership provides opportunities for members to share their stories and experiences through regular Blog posts and our podcast series, Adoption Shared. Both of which can be engaged with by the general public, proving an opportunity to share insight not just with fellow adopters, but also wider support networks and professionals. 

Adoption Shared is a unique podcast produced by We Are Family in partnership with Adopt London.

 In each episode, our host Eddie Elliott meets adopters and professionals who share their insight and experiences of the adoption journey from a variety of different perspectives which inform, support and amplify the adopter voice and community. With over 5,000 downloads across our first two seasons, we are proud that these valuable conversations are having such an impact on our members and wider community.

Our third season of the podcast ‘Adoption Shared: Black Voices’ is created by, with and for members of the Black community. In response to the lack of representation of Black adopters and professionals across the sector, and the barriers that may arise, this season gives voice to the currently underrepresented personal journeys of our Black families. By sharing the joys, challenges and possibilities, we hope that this season is both a companion and a tool for change.

Each episode in this series will be released every other Thursday – follow us for the first listen. 

This season has been shaped and curated with consultative support from Eddie Elliot and Esther Campbell. 

Through the podcast I’ve been lucky enough to hear from some hugely knowledgeable people – professionals and parents alike- who have given me a lot of resources and insight for my own parenting journey.

This feels like such an important resource to have out there for everyone.
