Vanessa Feltz and ITN hear my plans for adoption reform

What a whirlwind day following the announcement of my Adoption With Humanity adoption reform plans. However, it is a day tinged with sadness following the death of one of the greatest men, Steve Jobs, a perfect example of how adoption can work beautifully. Please read about it here. Yet we are still agonising over whether adoption should or not be first choice for children languishing in care....
