Adoptive families needed for two special boys

‘OUTSTANDING’ rated adoption charity Parents And Children Together (PACT) is searching for two adoptive families for Alan* aged two and David* aged four.

PACT is looking for separate home for the boys under the It’s All About Me (IAAM) scheme which means they will receive specialist therapeutic support tailored to their needs, if it is identified as necessary. The scheme encourages families to come forward and adopt children who have been waiting the longest.

PACT IAAM Manager Amanda Davies said: “Both of these boys have so much to offer their forever families and will be incredibly rewarding to care for.

“Alan is a very endearing little boy who loves cuddles. He has some language delay and needs a family who can encourage his language skills alongside a Speech and Language Therapist.

“David loves working hard at school and is making good progress. He thrives under praise given to him and needs a family who are committed to further progressing his development.

“We welcome couples and single people to come and find out about adoption and how they could change the lives of children like Alan and David.”

All children waiting to be adopted through the IAAM scheme have a comprehensive assessment by the South London and Maudsley (SLaM) Child Care Assessment Centre.

Families adopting under IAAM are given a range of interventions geared to supporting adoptive parents, including training in therapeutic parenting tailored to the specific needs of the child and 24-hour support during the first two years after adoption to reduce the risk of placement breakdown.
