Welcome to another week, which promises to be a little grey, but that should match the grey cell conundrum we have for you, nicely.

The Department of Education announced last week that new adoption agencies have opened their doors as part of a wider scheme to get children adopted, faster. The press release tells us that these agencies have committed to finding over 100 adopters in their first three years, particularly for those children who are harder to place (i.e. those who perhaps have learning or other disabilities, are older or have siblings).

None of the current measures to improve adoption include ensuring that potential adopters are able to cope with the children entrusted in their care, or just as importantly, able to love them unconditionally.

Our question this week, is very simple: do you think these new agencies will be good for children in care?
