Request from CNN

Press and PR May 19, 2020 17:11

Hello, I’m a journalist from CNN, based in the UK, looking for families to interview for a written article about how coronavirus has delayed the adoption process. Please get in touch if you have faced frustrating delays or setbacks and would be available for a phone interview on Can be anonymous if preferred. Thanks, Emma

Are you not looking for a balanced article? I’ve been impressed with how things have continued to proceed as much as they are able to given the circumstances. Wouldn’t it be good to have some positive experiences to share rather than more doom and gloom?

Hi All,

Just to confirm that this request was sent through via our press officer and was not a direct post from a CNN journalist.

Any experiences - good and bad regarding the adoption process and lockdown would be great to hear about. We have seen some really positive progress made from many of you.

We will offer full support, so if you would like to come via Adoption UK directly and find out more, please do email Andrew of myself (Charlotte) at or our press officer Joe on and we will support you and explain a little more.

Apologies for any confusion.

Best wishes,
