Adoption charity seeks homes for children in care
AN adoption agency has urged people in Devon to consider giving a child a home in the light of dwindling numbers coming forward.
Families for Children said the last few years had seen a decrease in the number of people considering adoption.
The independent agency, which has about 4,000 children on its waiting lists, specialises in finding homes for children who are in the care of local authorities. Most of the children it deals with have experienced extreme trauma in their early lives in the form of both physical and emotional abuse from their birth families.
David Holmes, chief executive of the British Association for Adoption and Fostering, said children desperately needed homes.

He said: "It is sad that some children are simply unable to remain with their birth family, because of neglect, abuse or perhaps just because their parents are unable to cope."
Families for Children, whose patrons include Exeter chef Michael Caines, existed for many years as a joint venture operated by the Exeter Diocesan Board for Christian Care and the Plymouth Diocesan Catholic Children's Society. It became a separate charity in 2003.
