Children from African, African-Caribbean, and mixed ethnicity backgrounds
Children needing adoption come from many different cultures, ethnic backgrounds and religions and black and mixed race children frequently wait for an adoptive family. Prospective adopter/s can be considered for children with whom they do not share the same ethnicity however, they will need to consider how they can positively promote their child’s identity. ACE will provide flexible and creative support. As an organisation ACE aims to be inclusive, respecting the diversity of individual and family experiences.
