The 23rd April 2021 see's the start of a new national adoption campaign from #YouCanAdopt that focuses on the need for more adopters to consider adopting brothers & sisters. Often taking longer to place, we wanted to shine a light on the process of adopting siblings by talking to one of our amazing adoptive families. In the episode we talk to Shauneen who, along with her husband Oliver adopted siblings. We talk about how they both arrived at the decision to adopt more than one child, the challenges they faced and also the highs of adopting brothers & sisters.
