Children waiting for adoption

Every child is different, so the right adopter for one child may be the wrong adopter for another. This is why we are always looking for a wide range of new families. 

Some children thrive in a busy family with brothers or sisters, while others may need the special attention of being an only child.

We need adopters for children of all ages. We are particularly looking for adopters for brothers and sisters, toddlers and young children aged four and older, and children with disabilities.

We currently have ten children waiting for adoption:

  • Three boys and seven girls, who all range from one to five years old
  • Three sibling pairs - one set of girls, one set of boys and a girl and boy
  • One child with a medical condition


Sophie is an active 18-month-old, who is meeting all of her developmental milestones. She is a happy and contented baby girl who loves music. Sophie has a medical condition called cystic fibrosis which her foster carer manages really well. She is bright, alert and engaging. Sophie is full of adventure and determination.

Isabelle and Amy

Isabelle and Amy are four and five-year-old siblings. They are happy and active and share a special bond. Their favourite food is macaroni cheese and they love ice cream. Isabelle enjoys playing with dolls and play food. Amy loves her toy garage and cars. They enjoy playing outside and trips to the seaside and are very settled in their routines. The girls are wary of dogs and cats.


Rose is two-years-old. Her favourite toys are play cups and tea sets. She enjoys music and loves to dance. Rose has a diagnosis of global developmental delay and is slowly making progress. She is walking and is very active, and is using sounds and pointing to communicate.


Lavender is three, very sociable and enjoys the company of adults and children. She loves being outdoors, climbing and riding her scooter, playing with dolls and dressing up. She can find it hard to be kind to cats and dogs, but is becoming more gentle. Lavender needs a family who will give her therapeutic parenting. She is making huge progress with this approach with her foster carers. Lavender is strong-willed, but thoughtful towards others and is lots of fun.


Lola is just over one-year-old. She is an inquisitive, cheeky and active little girl who is into everything. She enjoys being outdoors, whether out in her buggy or feeding the ducks, and she loves to have a picnic. Lola is used to dogs in her foster placement and has also been around cats, chicken and hamsters. Lola eats and sleeps well. She is in good health, although is prone to chest infections. Lola needs her adoptive family to live outside Norfolk, and away from the towns and villages which border the county.

Florence and Raye

Florence and Raye have been with their foster carer for one year. These three and four year old siblings are settled in their routines and are both making good progress. Florence is fearless, active and likes playing with dolls, Lego and loves to dress up. She has made a good start at school and has lots of friends. Raye is affectionate and cheeky and enjoys playing with cars and trains and is very endearing. Both love splashing in puddles and playing outside. The girls share a lovely bond.


Bonnie is a 17-month-old little girl who has lived with her foster carer since she was three days old. She loves to play peek a boo, singing and music and doing the actions to Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. She also enjoys swimming and making splashes in the bath. Her favourite toy is her dancing llama which makes her giggle. Occasionally she can get frustrated and will let you know by screaming. She enjoys routine and familiarity. Bonnie has global development delay and hypermobility. She is progressing well and is now crawling and pulling herself up on furniture - her foster carer thinks she will be walking very soon. Bonnie is gaining confidence and interacting and engaging well with familiar adults and children at play and stay activities.
