Dear Mum, you're Number One

Find out how Coram helped single mum Pamela find the right child to adopt.

We need a variety of adoptive parents, including single parent adopters such as Pamela, who can offer a child love and support throughout childhood and beyond. In turn, Coram offers a lifetime of support to your family.

It’s a tough one to find the right match! But at Coram they were absolutely brilliant with it and as a single adopter they really pushed because some Councils might not be as up for it as Coram, and they know you and they know what you can handle and what you can manage and what you are looking at.

Could you adopt? 

If you believe you can offer one or more children the time, love and commitment they require to grow up feeling safe and happy, we would love to hear from you.
