Paul and Louise

We always wanted to have two children. This didn’t happen naturally and our daughter Clare was born as a result of IVF treatment. We found out it was not possible for us to have any more children by this method. This was very disappointing at the time but we later realised we could apply to have a second child by adoption.

Our son James was placed with us when he was four years old. We were all thrilled and more than a bit apprehensive, wondering how he would fit in to our family.

Now, seeing his smiling face every day makes us realise that we have brightened up  his world and he has enriched ours.
