Christine GordonPosted in: News
We were deeply saddened to hear that Christine Gordon, one of the founding members of Family Futures, died recently in a car accident in Costa Rica.
Christine was an adoptive parent full of enthusiasm and passion for supporting adopters. She completely understood the struggles many adopters were facing, at a time when these were not widely acknowledged, and would do everything she could to help adoptive families, day or night. Christine was much loved by other adopters and a driving force behind setting up Family Futures in 1998.
Christine was Scottish and loved her bike and adventures in the great outdoors. She was one of only a few women to have completed climbing all the Munros in Scotland and went on to climb all the Furths (the plus-3000ft mountains in England, Wales and Ireland). In doing so, Christine became the first woman to climb all of Ireland’s mountains. Christine travelled to all the continents including Antarctica, and loved walking and cycling in different countries around the world. She set up a YouTube channel with videos of travel and hill walking to inspire others to pursue their own adventures and travels.
All of us at Family Futures would like to offer our sincere condolences to Christine’s family and loved ones. A truly inspiring lady who made a huge difference to the lives of the many adoptive families she was dedicated to.
