We are an inter-racial, gay couple in our early thirties embarking upon the process of adoption in South London. This blog is an opportunity for us to share the journey, including its highs and lows, uncertainties, discoveries, joys and inevitable disappointments.
For obvious reasons there needs to be a certain amount of anonymity involved, so for the purposes of the blog we’ll give ourselves some pseudonyms:
James is white, 33 and works in education.
Ethan is black British, with Nigerian heritage, is 31 and a performer.
Hopefully the blog will enable us both to offer some personal insights into the adoption process and act as both an outlet and a resource for others looking to adopt or going through the process, at whatever stage.
