A NATIONAL charity is urging Sheffield residents who may be considering adopting to take the first steps in the process this Mother’s Day.
Barnardo’s Yorkshire assistant director, Dot Jarvis, said: “There are thousands of children out there who are looking for a mum and are desperate to become part of a loving family.
“The time around Mother’s Day, when we’re all thinking about the importance of family, is the perfect time to take that first step. “
The charity is particularly looking for people who can care for sibling groups, black and minority ethnic children, disabled children and those with challenging behaviour.
