Welcome to another week.
These are the latest child welfare items that should be right on your radar:
- These adoptees refuse to be ‘political props’ in the debate over abortion rights (US)
- Young people in Wales being failed when moving from child to adult mental health services (Wales)
- Ministry of Justice denies new pilot scheme removes right to a trial (UK)
Political props, in the debate over adoption rights.
I 100% agree with adoptees. 60/50/40 years ago
, MOTHERS were denied any rights, and their babies taken for adoption. I remember asking if I could get a live in job at Barnardo’s home, as a jack of all trades cleaner, just to keep my baby, I was almost laughed at, for not wanting a MUM and DAD for my baby. The rightful place for every child born into this world, is with THEIR mum, if for reason separation is needed then KINSHIP care, with access to mum and dad, there lies all natural identity and ancestry and care. We are grown up nations, it’s time we put family first, and PAID help and support for families under pressure. I was part of such a scheme, the families in crisis I supported, ARE STILL family today. It can be done, quality wrap around care.
