Find Me A Family
Tuesday 12th May 2009
9pm to 10pm
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.
Rachel, 35, doesn't have a partner but would like to become a mum - she has signed up with an adoption agency and thinks she wants to adopt a single boy or girl. She has also enrolled on a project designed to encourage adopters like her to choose the children other adopters tend to shy away from.
When David Akinsanya discovers Rachel would consider adopting children aged over four, he's keen to encourage her to choose one of the many older boys stuck in the care system who are often overlooked by other adopters. He arranges for Rachel to spend a weekend looking after a seven-year-old boy. Although the experience is challenging for Rachel, it gives her a helpful first taste of parenting. But, when the authorities come to decide whether she can adopt any child at all, fears about her self-confidence threaten to derail the whole process.
