Is it teething time for your little one?


Grace was taken into care after her mum became unable to look after her due to a severe pre-eclampsia during pregnancy, and has been in foster care ever since.


The three-year-old is being cared for by her foster mother and father, who have cared for 40 children over the past 19 years, but they are nearing retirement. They want to find a new family for Grace and a public appeal has since been set up to help the little girl find a permanent home.



Launched by First4Adoption as part of National Adoption Week, the appeal, which wants people to consider adopting children over the age of four, has so far been a great success, with the organisation inundated with people hoping to adopt the little girl.


According to The Mirror, staff are shifting through all applications, particularly those who have already been approved, in order to get the little girl a home for Christmas.


The youngster was born at 25 weeks and left with cerebral palsy and chronic lung disease.  Thankfully however, little Grace, who was told would never walk, now “bops around everywhere” .



“To meet Grace, you would never know she was unwell at all. She is so full of energy and is so happy. She takes everything in her stride," her foster mother told the publication. 


We hope little Grace finds a home that she can call her own.
