Wanted: A Family of My Own
It's good to know where you came from, but the important thing, the thing that makes you, is your mum and dad
Adopted at just a few days old in 1962, Nicky Campbell believes that there are thousands of prospective parents out there who could provide a loving home to children waiting in need of a family, but that many are put off by the myths and misconceptions surrounding what is often seen as the 'complicated' process of adoption.
In his new ITV series Wanted: A Family of My Own, Nicky goes behind the scenes of adoption. Granted unprecedented access to the workings of eight local authorities, as well as the lives of parents and children at various stages of the adoption process, Nicky hopes the new series will dispel some of the inaccurate perceptions many still have about adoption. He joins us now to tell us more about a subject which is very close to his heart.
