Adoption week 16th-20th November
By Democrat reporter
Adoption Week celebrates adoption in Scotland from the 16th-20th November, it is funded by the Scottish Government and managed by AFA and AUK Scotland. There is a range of activities taking place around Scotland for people interested in adopting and for adoptive families.
Of course this year is a little bit different with activities being delivered online but we will still be delivering a wide and varied programme celebrating adoption, the following events are taking place online:
Saturday 7th November @ 1pm
