Barry and Nicola

We always wanted to have three children and when we realised that we could maybe have a third child through adoption we contacted our local Trust.

Our son Ethan was placed with us at five years old.  We remember his little face when we first met him, he was so excited and so were we.  We were happy and anxious at the same time as we knew this was a lifelong commitment.  The support and post adoption support has been invaluable and together we are trying to give Ethan the best life chances.

“When we knew mum and dad wanted to adopt we were excited and scared.  Now it feels like Ethan has always been with us, part of our family,” says Louise, Barry and Nicola’s eldest daughter.
