Adoption is a very special privilege. After fostering my sons for 6 years we were able to adopt them and this made a huge difference to them and us. We've had so much to learn on our adoption journey and being able to ultimately call the boys our own created a feeling of belonging for them. However, we still face significant challenges daily with behavior.
I have also prepared children for adoption which is both wonderful although a little heart-breaking at the same time. I know what it is like for an adoptive family to try and settle a child quickly and how tiring that can be. I have stayed away from home during introductions in order to hand a child over and experienced firsthand the emotional rollercoaster this can be.
After I sold my child care business I decided that I want to help and support adopters and foster carers. You will find lots of information on my youtube channel but you can also contact me for a 1: 1 consultation on anything about children's behaviors, attachment, development, communication.
I hold a first-class honors degree in Early childhood studies and a postgraduate diploma in communication disorders
