Ruth, 44, talks about her journey to adoption with Adoption Matters.

“I looked into Adoption Matters, I rang them and said ‘I am a woman in her early 40s, living by herself, I’ve no idea how this is going to work’ and they basically said,’ we’ll help you’. They took my hand and took me all the way through the process and made everything easy,” Ruth shared.

“I had never been an expert in looking after babies the moment she looked at me and I looked at her, my first thought was absolute terror and my second thought was oh my goodness, my life’s about to change and so is yours.

“The support I have received from my social worker at Adoption Matters, well she is like a friend, she has been with me from day one.”
