The Adoption and Fostering Podcast

Episode 127 - International Edition

October 30, 2021

In this episode Al travels to Ireland and they record a podcast there! So, we catch up on the news and comings and goings over the last few weeks. That includes adult breastfeeding, gogglebox and Al's rejection from his RAA. 

#YouCanAdopt has been different this year and we reflect on the differences in marketing and some of the miss steps in marketing. That leads us nicely on to the ravages of social media and how adoption is framed in that context. 

We also unpick some of the language around adoption and specifically the phrase 'adoption is trauma'. It's an emotive issue so be warned. 

As always, if you've got thoughts or would like to share some ideas or your own story please get in touch through the email or via the usual social media channels.
