Find Me A Family
Monday 11th May 2009
9pm to 10pm
Part 1 of 3
As part of Channel 4's Britain's Forgotten Children season, Find Me a Family tries to find homes for the children who no one has come forward to adopt.
The three-part documentary - fronted by David Akinsanya, an adoption campaigner and journalist who grew up in care - follows three households of would-be adopters as they take part in a pioneering project. The programmes set out to provide the would-be adopters with hands-on experiences to encourage them to consider adopting the children who, too often, get overlooked.
In the first pogramme we follow Cathy and Richard, both 34, are hoping to adopt a sibling for their daughter Rachel, who was conceived after fertility treatment. After five years of trying unsuccessfully for a second child, they've decided to adopt. They think they want a toddler, but have enrolled on a project designed to encourage them to consider adopting older children who - unlike the little cute toddlers - sometimes struggle to find homes.
David Akinsanya arranges for Cathy and Richard to spend some time with siblings to find out if they could cope as a family of five. They decide they could adopt more than one child after all, but their social worker has concerns about whether their daughter Rachel could cope with a new adopted child in the family. Eventually, the family are matched with a child with a possible disability. David sets out to help the couple decide whether or not they could cope with the needs of a disabled child.
