Powerful documentary #ahomeformaisie . The past 3 years I've seen how positive adoption can be on a childs life with therapy, take note Gov!

Watching BBC 2 #Maisie ... in absolute awe at parents that adopt and go through hell and back to support kids who need a break.

Can't bear the show about #Maisie. Reading a book instead.
