What is stepfamily adoption, and why is it important? How does it happen, and how long does it take? What will it change in a child’s life, and what will stay the same? These, and many other questions about stepfamily adoption and what it is, are covered in this booklet for children.

Placing large sibling groups for adoption

| Hilary Saunders, Julie Selwyn and Eileen Fursland

The importance of maintaining sibling relationships is widely recognised, but it is not always easy to find families willing and able to adopt sibling groups. This Good Practice Guide examines how adoption agency staff and children’s social workers handle the adoption process for large sibling groups, with an emphasis on practices and policies which may help or hinder prospective sibling group adopters and the children they wish to adopt.

Together in time

| Ruth and Ed Royce

Published as part of the Our Story series, this is the story of Ruth and Ed Royce’s journey from childlessness to celebrating as a family. From a dual perspective, each with their own anxieties, expectations and vulnerabilities, they look back on their decision to adopt, to the fear that their family was falling apart, to their experience of music and art therapy, and then on to their decision to adopt a second time.
