Sue Reid on the Baby Snatchers
The link is to a Daily Mail article about the baby snatchers.
Where the growth in babies being taken into care is most dramatic is the newborn babies adopted last year of whom 920 were under 1 week when taken into care. In 1995 the figure was 370.
Remembering that some are taken into care because they are abandoned (possibly about 250) this is a massive increase in terms of babies taken into care from parents who want to keep them.
