Editor - There is a shortage of adopters and foster carers.
Many people still believe being gay or lesbian is a barrier to adopting or fostering, but this is just a myth. Through our work, the British Association for Adoption & Fostering (BAAF) has met many amazing parents from the LGBT community.
We support LGBT Adoption and Fostering Week. To find your nearest information event, visit www.lgbtadoptfosterweek.org.uk.
