Sophie's story


Despite being hesitant at the beginning of the process I have to say that adopting my little girl is the best thing that I have ever done.  I’m not pretending that life hasn’t changed, it really has, I have less time for the things that I want to do but seeing my little girl happy and her giving me cuddles makes it all so worth while.  I really do love being her mammy.

The support and training that I received from North Tyneside Council’s adoption service throughout the process was fantastic and well considered. My social worker was amazing and completely honest throughout the process.  I would urge anyone who is thinking about adopting to speak to North Tyneside Counci’s Adoption Service and find out for themselves what it means to adopt.
