Hi, I gave up a nursing career 3yrs ago to adopt a little boy with parkinsonism dystonia and global function delay who is now 4yrs old. I also care for my 52yrs old brother with Downs syndrome. Because I adopted outside my own area it has been difficult to get my local authorities to accept him as a local residents due to the nature of the adoption (Special Guardianship) and often have to rely on organisations for information.
