Hi Nicki, sorry I didn't get back to you yesterday, bit of a nightmare day at work! (not sure what happened to the pm but never mind!)

When I was looking at adoption I found www.adoptionuk.com very helpful and they have a message board similar to this one with absolutely loads of info and support

I have these on my list too as places I looked at although I can't remember which were good ones -
www.cathchild.org.uk
www.adoptchildlink.org.uk
www.nch.org.uk
www.dfes.gov.uk/adoption

Hope that helps a bit, good luck in your research
Lots of love
Kat xx

PS Hi Becky, haven't spoken to you for ages, hope you're doing OK x

Hi Nicki
Me and DH went to an adoption open day last year which was really informative and helpful. DH was really against the idea at first but once we had been he completely changed his mind. There are lots of couples who attend in the same boat as you and some who give talks on their experiences of adoption. It was run by our local authority so it might be worth giving yours a ring and finding out if they have any running in your area. We aren't at the adoption stage yet but are keeping all our options open and thought it wouldn't hurt to have as much information as possible.
Hope this helps and good luck. xx
