David Cameron urged to support adoption reformsPosted by Francesca on Oct 6, 2011 in Blog | 1 comment
I would like to thank the London Evening Standard for highlighting my proposals for adoption reforms when I urged David Cameron to take action:
“David Cameron needs to lead on this issue and our focus should be to put children first. That means doing away with a system that keeps children in neglect until it is often too late and focuses plainly and squarely on their needs. That won’t happen until we see adoption as a first resort.”
Happily, I read in today’s Times that he plans to “tear up Britain’s adoption rules and end the scandal of thousands of children lost in the care system”.
We will have to wait and see how far he plans to go, but I very much hope the government will listen and consider our Adoption with Humanity proposal when preparing their policy on adoption reforms. Children’s lives and their happiness depend on it.
Please do look out for me on ITV London this evening at 6pm where I will be talking about this.
And please do sign our petition if you share our views too about making desperately needed changes to the present adoption system. You can sign it here.
