Britain’s adoption crisis

“The Times is campaigning to fix a broken British adoption system. We want the speed of the adoption process to be increased and to substantially increase the number of successful adoptions.”  Well, we are not too sure about that.


People should not be afraid of their Government the Government should be afraid of its people

What is adoption?

“Christopher Booker tells of a couple forced to flee England to refuge in North Cyprus.   The Guardian tells the story of four mothers all losing their children to the adoption system.”

This year, social workers from Harrow Council made a presentation to London’s local authorities on how it turned around its performance on adoption from one of the worst to one of the best in the country.  There is a suspicion among experts that adoption has fallen out of favour in London.  Children suitable for adoption are viewed as a small, costly cohort; there is always someone worse off or in more danger. A second problem is the way adoption services are run. Social workers turn away good prospective adopters because they do not exactly match the waiting children, rather than share them with neighbouring authorities.

London does throws up challenges with a diverse population, high rates of poverty and families with drug and alcohol problems. But are the problems really so much worse than, say, parts of the western world.  In the United Kingdom, Birmingham the children’s services have been criticised as not up to the job, but social workers still managed to have 9 per cent of care leavers adopted last year?  Analysis  by Rosemary Bennett of The Times April 22 2011  

Paul Burnett became the director for children’s services in Greenwich.  Paul Burnett was then appointed to the role of director for children’s services in Northamptonshire.  The 48-year-old, who began his teaching career in Northamptonshire, took up the role following the departure of Andrew Sortwell.   Andrew Sortwell  was a man who did not ignore parents and did not impose Academies where they were not wanted, or needed.  In Northamptonshire Paul Burnett  is reported to be the man who ignored parents and imposed Academies where they were not wanted, or needed.  The director for children and young people had been appointed by Northamptonshire County Council.  Cabinet member for children Joan Kirkbride welcomed the appointment of Paul Burnett.  Yes, she did!

    June 2011
    Notice: Adoption Notice Vietnam
    Intercountry adoption is not possible from Vietnam at this time. Adoption service providers and prospective adoptive parents should not seek or accept new (or potential) adoption referrals from Vietnam until an announcement is posted that the United States Citizenship and Information Service (USCIS) is again processing new I-600 or I-800 petitions for intercountry adoption in Vietnam.

    Forced Adoptions are already legal in this country, it is just that it goes under the title of long-term foster care.

    The police attended not as a child protection issue, but to deal with the mother.

    “Almost hourly last week I followed yet another child-snatching drama, as bizarre and disturbing as any I have reported. So irked were the social workers of an English council when, six months ago, a mother and her 14-year-old son evaded their clutches by fleeing to Ireland that they hit on a cunning ruse. They tracked down the woman’s former husband, who had not seen his son for seven years, and paid for him to go to Dublin to front a case for “child abduction”, on the grounds that his son had been taken abroad without his consent.”
