Welcome to another week.

Prime Minister, David Cameron has recently made a statement in which he would like to see the adoption process sped up even more so that adoptions are secured faster. Mr Cameron’s reason for wanting to up the pace is to place children more quickly and avoid them having to wait for long periods before being adopted.

However not everyone feels this is the answer. Counter arguments include the view that greater speed in the process does not necessarily equal a stable and lasting placement, and that it would be better to focus on addressing children’s needs as a whole during the in-between stages of care and adoption so that the right families can be found for each child.

Our question then, is just this: do you think faster adoption processes are a good thing?
