This is what one mum said about PACT’s post adoption support:
“Thank you for all your hard work and professionalism through a very difficult and challenging placement. Without FACTS, I don’t think the outcome would have been the same. We know that our placement will be a challenge, but now we’ve got the tools to deal with this, have a robust Adoption Support Plan and know how and where we can get help.”
“We are delighted to be parents, thanks to PACT, and we are fortunate to be able to give a home to these three lovely girls. We knew we wanted a big family. It was hard reading about children waiting to be adopted but we had a really positive feeling about the three girls when we first read about them. Now we have such a strong bond with them, they are part of our family and it’s a privilege to be their mum.” – Katherine, adoptive mum
