Affected by Adoption?

Association Representing Mothers Separated from children by adoption (ARMS) 

We are a self-help group providing support services to all parties affected by adoption separation.

Everyone is welcome.

"Seeing one's adult daughter once, for 3 days, in 50 years is soul destroying and for me ARMS has been a lifeline." 

Heather, Mother

"Meeting and speaking with other survivors helped me realise I am not alone"
'Leanne', Adopted Adult
