DERBYSHIRE county council has been backing a push to find foster homes for 112 children.

As part of National Adoption Week the authority has helped with the week-long campaign, which ended on Sunday, to find more about becoming adoptive parents.

In Derbyshire a total of 65 children were adopted between November 2011 and 31 October 2012 - ranking the county third nationally - but bosses say more parents are needed.

Councillor Barry Lewis, cabinet member for young people said: “An adoptive parent can come from any background or culture.

“The only essential quality is that they can provide unconditional love for a child.

“We do everything possible to make sure we match a child with the family that is right for them and we offer a lot of ongoing support to help adoptive families.” To find out more visit www.derbyshire.gov.uk/adoption or call 01629 533190.
