Sally lives in the middle of England with her husband Rob, their two children and a cat called Ron. Before adopting their children from Local Authority Care Sally worked in an historic garden quietly tending herbaceous borders and talking to WI groups. She says 'life is a bit different these days'.
In her memoir 'No Matter What' Sally writes about infertility and her experience of domestic adoption, the impact upon the children of early trauma and the realisation that they need to be parented differently: therapeutically.
Sally writes for Community Care and has contributed to their publication 'Death, Threats and Dogs: Life on the Social Work Frontline'. She also blogs at http://www.sallydonovan.net/
