Bridget's taking a long time

Bridget's taking a long time

Moving to new families always raises issues not only for the child being placed but also for children in the family they are moving to. Bridget’s taking a long time is an interactive story for children aged 5 to 12 dealing with adoption issues from the point of view of children in an adopting family. This unique resource follows the hopes, fears and frustrations of a child in an adoptive family coming to terms with a new arrival.

As well as a delightful story to help children come to terms with the issues, the programme also includes a range of extra features designed to hold children’s attention and help address the issues.

Who is this resource for?

This product is ideal for all those who are assessing prospective adoptive families, where there are birth children already in the family.
