Appeal courts reverses placement for adoption
The Bailii link demonstrates the Appeal court starting to do its job properly. A placement for adoption was done far too early without being in a position to consider whether it was good for the children. This has now been reversed.
I met someone with learning difficulties who had lost 6 children to adoption last Friday. She clearly had relatively mild problems and her case does need more consideration.
We are intending to work with advocates (both for children in care and adults with learning difficulties) to try to help them fight the adoption machine. A lot of the solicitors are more trouble than they are worth.
