    Dear Eleanor,

    Sorry to contact you this way but I know you have two children and are a respected journalist so I wondered if you knew that it is adoption week coming up on October 31st.

    I’m just an adoptive mum trying to spread the word for BAAF that adoption is something worth considering.

    So I made this silly little film for the BAAF champions competition aiming to spread the word that prospective adopters are being welcomed far more these days. You may have heard on the news today that there are 3,500 children still in care and only 60 were adopted last year.

    My story is that I was a career woman with a designer mimimalist house and now I trip over toys all day long- but love it.

    If you can advise any way to get the story out there BAAF would be so pleased- and so would I as adoption made my life so happy.
