Leading adoption charity Adoption Matters are searching for an adoptive family for Lilly aged five, Brodie aged three and Evie aged two and are urging the LGBT community to help.

The charity is looking for a family who can help the girls stay together as they have such a strong and close bond with each other. Their  bespoke family finding service encourages families to come forward and adopt children who may have been waiting longer for a family. Any families interested in adopting the girls will be fully trained and supported by Adoption Matters and their partnership centre for adoption support service.

Finding a family for a sibling group of three children is never easy and is a big ask of any parent.  With recent research from LinkMaker* showing that 6 in 10 (63 per cent) of the same-sex couples waiting for a match were open to adopting more than one child, compared to 5 in 10 (47 per cent) of the opposite-sex couples.  The charity is targeting the LGBT community to consider adopting this sibling group.

The girls foster carers say: “All they need is love, care and structure”. 

Lilly aged five is a lovely, bubbly sociable little girl with a fun sense of humour who makes everyone around her smile and laugh. Lilly has developmental delay and health needs. She is a determined and strong-willed girl who has developed and thrived so much since being in care.

Brodie aged three loves to dance around to her favourite music and likes make-believe play.

Evie aged two loves her phones and is always calling people for a chat!  She is kind, gentle and very sociable, her carer say she’s a bit of a nosey parker!

Both Brodie and Evie are meeting all their developmental milestones and are doing very well.

Bespoke family finding service manager Amreen Riaz says: “The girls have so much to offer and would be incredibly rewarding. 

“They have such a close bond that we really want to find a family who can help them stay together.

“All enquiries will be considered carefully and you do not have to be an approved adopter to enquire. What matters most is you have the time and commitment to offer the girls a stable and loving family life, we will guide you through the whole process.  We will offer a full package of support and training to the girls and their future family.”

Adoption Matters adopters Luke & Sam, who adopted a sibling group of boys aged four and six shared their story this month for LGBT Adoption & Fostering Week.
