The Daily Mail Article – backlash

I am a woman and am a supporter of all women.  I support mothers who have given up their child for adoption, I support mothers who have adopted and I support birth mothers who struggle with raising kids on a day to day basis.

I believe in human rights. I do not believe in trolling under any circumstance.

I had not abandoned my adoptive child. He was an extremely poorly child with attachment issues, autism, neurological brain damage, poor muscle tone, who required 24/7 medical care  and supervision which I was unable to provide as single carer. It was not as some people interpreted that he was disabled and that is why I ‘returned’ him. I had managed his disabilities successful until  his uncontrollable seizures started and it became clear all his symptoms were part of a far wider problem.

The decision for him to go back into state care was made in conjunction with GOSH, SWs, doctors .

I had the full their full support as it was acknowledged by son’s medical needs were so extensive there was NO CARE PACKAGE AVAILABLE that could be offered to cope with his MEDICAL requirements so that he could be kept at home with me.

He moved to a foster care placement with four adults sharing the responsibility of caring for him 24/7 and I would like to personally thank them today for taking the most amazing care of him.

Thank you Daily Mail for sensationalising my story, but at the end of day you have also made the decent and caring people of Great Britain aware of the heartbreak for parents and children who go through adoption disruption and Care Orders and raised awareness of my website to support parents and the need to change the Care Order Form.

    Really glad this issue is being talked about at last. It is negligent for social services to place children with complex needs without a care package. Many of us struggle to access services and carry out the therapeutic parenting many of these kids need. I think you only need a reading age of 8 to Read The Mail by the way…
