We adopted our beautiful daughter in 2014, at the time I was self employed & devastated to learn I was entitled to statutory maternity pay but NOT statutory adoption pay.

It was the same story second time round when we adopted our gorgeous son in 2017.

My local MP took this to the house of commons where their reply was...

"If you choose to adopt then you need to have enough funds to cover your adoption leave".

I had to return to work one week after my daughter came home, robbing me of precious bonding time. We saved enough for me to take leave the second time around.
