I am a single adopter and made the decision to adopt when I realised during National Adoption Week that I could still adopt even though I was single. I adopted Mia, my beautiful daughter when she was three and half years old. Introductions took place over a number of weeks and although this was emotionally and physically exhausting, it was the best time of my life and has continued to be. I have great support from friends and family and the post adoption support has been helpful especially with contact with Mia’s birth family. I have a wonderful daughter and I am so blessed to have her in my life.
