Who are the children waiting to be adopted?

Children reading

We need adopters for children of all ages. We are particularly looking for adopters for brothers and sisters, toddlers and young children aged 4 and older, and children with disabilities.

We especially want to hear from people who could adopt children like these or who could offer Early Permanence. 

We currently have 34 children waiting for adoption - 26 boys and 8 girls.

Our latest figures for children waiting for adoption are:

  • 7 children aged under 5
  • 9 children aged over 5
  • 6 sibling pairs (4 pairs of boys and 2 pairs of girls)
  • 1 sibling group of 3 (all boys)
  • 3 children with disabilities

These are real children we’re currently looking for families for. To protect privacy, we’ve changed their names.

Thomas - "I love making things out of Lego and playing on my computer games"

Thomas is a 6 year old boy who enjoys nothing more than playing on his favourite computer games. He is a real boys boy who loves wrestling and rough and tumble. Thomas is very talented at making things out of lego and loves an adult to do this with him. His perfect day would involve getting up and going to the park on his scooter. Then coming home watching his favourite superhero programme on TV whilst playing with some lego.

Thomas loves any superheroes and he’s always pretending to be spiderman!

Thomas is slightly behind at school but his teachers are confident that he has the ability to catch up once he feels settled and secure in his new family.

Thomas will thrive in a family with energetic carers who will nurture and care for him in the way that he needs.

Rhia and Tom – “We enjoy pottering around in the garden and riding our scooters to the park”

Rhia is an 8 year old little girl who loves all things pink and glittery. She is a real ‘girly girl’. Rhia loves to watch Disney films while wearing her princess outfits.  She has boundless energy and enjoys going for walks to the beach and riding her bike.

Tom is 3 years old. He loves watching Paw Patrol or playing games on his tablet. His foster carers describe him as a very charming and inquisitive little boy. Tom enjoys watching aeroplanes in the sky and telling his carers where he thinks they are going. He also loves playing with his toy cars.

Rhia and Tom need an energetic family who are able to give them the time and attention they need to grow and develop in a stable and loving home.


Alice and Susie – “We enjoy dressing up as princesses and playing dolly’s.”

Alice is a bubbly little girl who is full of energy; she enjoys going to the park and on the trampoline. When she is not running around, Alice likes putting bows in her hair and wearing her favourite dresses.

Alice is making good progress at school, though is slightly behind in some areas. Alice gets along well with other children; she is a smiley, bubbly and chatty little girl.

Susie’s foster carer says she can be quiet at first but is soon chatty and noisy. Susie eats well – her favourite food is pasta! She also sleeps well; she enjoys a bottle of milk before bed and has her dummy at night-time.

Susie is doing well at nursery and enjoys going. Susie used to be quite shy but has now started to play alongside the other children and is talking and laughing more. Alice and Susie are close and loving sisters who need to grow together in a safe and loving home.
