Mum of 2 fabulous girls adopted from Anhui Province, China, I have edited the Magazine, CACH UP! since the August 2010 edition. I am now looking forward to my new role as Chair!
Sharon Charlton Thompson
I volunteered to become Secretary of CACH in 2015 because I am passionate about post adoption support of families with intercountry adopted children, remedy and I simply wanted to ‘do my bit’ towards this. It’s a privilege to be a part of the committee and I am staggered by the commitment of the volunteers who make things happen alongside the usual busy day jobs and the chaos of family life. We have been members of CACH since 2006 when we adopted Tilly, and in 2012 we adopted Sam. I live in Bath and work full time as a Coaching Psychologist. If I can help you in anyway relating to adoption and CACH please do get in touch.
I have been Membership Secretary for the last 7 years, and it's a role I love, giving me the chance to be in contact with so many members as well as working with a great group of people on the Committee. I live in south west London. Mum to three, Hermione, Joseph and then Lucy who was adopted from Hubei province in 2006.
I look after all things to do with the finances of the charity from paying all the bills, making sure we collect all the subscriptions from members and keeping the Charities Commission happy with various reports. All a busman’s holiday with being an accountant in my real life but constantly buoyed along with the very upbeat pro-active committee. Mum of 1 from Jiangxi plus step mum to a few grown up kids.
I look after the website content and since I took over I've added two new pages - 'Adopted?' (trying to keep our young people connected) and 'Homeland' (to assist with planning homeland visits). I'm very keen to keep the content relevant and up to date so please feel free to send me contributions. I'd also love to hear your ideas about what you would like to see on the website.
I am mum to two girls, the younger was adopted from China in 2004.
I look after the technical side of the CACH website. If anybody has any thoughts about the site then please do get in touch. I am the father of a girl & boy adopted from China, and work in software development.
My name is Carrie Fleming and I'm excited to continue the national regional co-ordinator job. Having served for several years as part of the the group running Surrey I enjoy learning more about the other regions activities and how others are keeping families involved in CACH. There are certainly a lot of challenges to overcome but the long term reason to stay connected to CACH remains as important as it was when the children were young.
I am married to Donald and have two girls, Iona and Allegra. Allegra was adopted from Shangro, Jiangxi.
Please do feel free to contact me if you have any concerns or issues regarding your region.
