Watch Our Adoption Video

Adoption can be a daunting process for those starting out and gathering information for the first time.

To help give an insight into adoption as a partnership between prospective parents and DFW Adoption we shot this short video. The video shows the story of a sibling group who were all adopted together because the adoptive parents believed that the family unit should be maintained for their happiness and wellbeing.

Of course all cases of adoption are as different as the children themselves and this is only 1 story. What we hope you gain from this video is an insight into the work we do in finding the right families for the right children – and the happy outcome this can achieve for the children with their new families.

Stewart and Peters story from DFW Adoption on Vimeo.

If you want to talk about adopting siblings don’t hesitate to ring DFW and if you would like to talk to the adopters in the film they are more than happy to do this.

Our sincere thanks go to this lovely family, to Peter and Stuart and the children, for allowing me and the film crew ( from Punch Creative) to invade their home to complete a very special film to help us to recruit adoptive families for older children who might otherwise get left behind or separated. Many thanks also for the amazing food that was provided to sustain us throughout the day!
