A Durham adoption agency has made a poignant plea to find a forever home for "amazing" siblings Chase, five, and Freya, four, who have had a difficult start in life.


The brother and sister are currently being fostered by carers Sharon and Paul - who said that anyone who steps forward to take them into their family will love them. Chase and Freya "love being outside" and even enjoy helping around the house, said the team at Adoption Matters.


The agency said: "Chase and Freya have had a difficult start to their life. Since moving to their foster carers’ home, they have benefitted from having a consistent routine and lots of play and encouragement.


"They have become calmer, happier and more vocal children. It is a source of enormous pride for all the adults in their lives to see the progress they have both made."

The pair have developed a routine with their foster carers, and enjoy activities such as racing on their scooters, playing hide and seek, swimming and horse riding - and they both sleep and eat well. Chase is a boy "with whom it is impossible not to connect, because he is so loving and open-hearted". At school, his teacher said: "Chase is an absolute pleasure to have in class. The progress we’ve seen in him is phenomenal."


Meanwhile, his little sister Freya is "an independent little girl" who loves the song Let It Go from Disney classic Frozen. Her nursery teacher said: "Freya is a very happy little girl and comes into nursery with enthusiasm. Freya is a super role model in supporting the new children to settle."


The agency, which will welcome adoption applications from across the North East, added: "Chase and Freya have had a difficult start to their life. Since moving to their foster carers’ home, they have benefitted from having a consistent routine and lots of play and encouragement.


"They have become calmer, happier and more vocal children. It is a source of enormous pride for all the adults in their lives to see the progress they have both made."

Adoption Matters is ideally searching for a two-parent family, but will consider enquiries from those who are single. Families with older children or without children are welcomed.


The children have other siblings and it is hoped they may be able to spend time with them as they grow up.


Adoption Matters have a dedicated Centre for Adoption Support that provides therapeutic support to all approved adopters - and also welcomes enquiries from LGBTQ+ couples. To find out more about the children visit: www.adoptionmatters.org/profile-cf
