Welcome to your Monday and our question of the week, which focuses on adoption and fostering.

In today’s Guardian Online, Caroline Selkirk, chief executive of the British Association for Adoption and Fostering (BAAF), writes about the progress and the problems with adoption and the need to make placements ‘for life’, especially for children she calls ‘difficult to place’.

She cites several things which she feels need to be looked at, and these include: “challenges to adoption, the revised framework for long-term foster care, the further development of special guardianship and the provision of effective support including financial help for carers.”

Our question this week then, is this: do you agree with Caroline’s list?
