Adopt Me Please

LIVING CHANNEL – Tuesdays from 6 October, 8.30pm

Of the 4,000 children available for adoption at any one time in the UK, approximately 1,000 end up staying in care, because no-one offers them a home. Children with disabilities, older children, sibling groups and children from ethnic minorities are particularly hard to find homes for. Each episode in this riveting new series follows the journey of would-be adopters, who have signed up to take part in a project to find homes for these less fortunate children. It follows the potential parents as they are assessed by social workers, face tough questioning by panels of adoption experts and to the moment when they find out if a child in desperate need of a home will be theirs.
