Origins: support after adoption and support after care

/media/adults/library/origins2_440.jpgThe Origins service provides support after adoption and support after care for people affected by a childhood separation from their family of origin. The separation may have been through adoption or through being in care.

Father Hudson’s Care recognises the lifelong impact of being separated from one’s family of origin, both for the person concerned and for their relatives. It has a long tradition of childcare and preserves over 40,000 records on children going back to 1902. It believes in the value of treasuring personal histories and understands how looking back into one’s past can enhance one’s personal identity and sense of belonging.

Reconnecting people separated from their family of origin can bring healing and can help people in moving forward. Although Father Hudson’s no longer provides residential care for children or arranges adoptions, it remains committed to providing quality services for those with a childhood connection to Father Hudson’s.
