MEDIA TO DATE

Grazia South Africa – 8th April 2015 – http://www.pressreader.com/south-africa/grazia/20150408/283592398829483/TextView Thank you South Africa for your support. Not wholly my story but they have tried to get across the point about disruptions and care orders by using my story as an example.

LBC – Friday 20th March 2015 – http://www.lbc.co.uk/the-mum-who-gave-her-adopted-son-back-106813 – decent phone in with different people after my live discussion with Shelagh Fogarty

BBC Radio 4 Today – Friday 20th March 2015 – http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b055jtwh  really good mention for the website and background of my story in conjunction with general debate about improving adoption process and support

The Daily Mail – Thursday 19th March 2015 – http://www.dailymail.co.uk/home/index.html am mentioned in the mail today and have full support of a very courageous woman who has told her story.  Really kind of her to give me her support and not condemnation.

Lorraine Kelly – Tuesday 17th March 2015 – http://www.itv.com/lorraine/hot-topics/claire-patterson-provides-support-for-adoption – felt like I did my best in this interview time dependent too.

The Independent – Tuesday 17th March 2015 –http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/health-and-families/features/a-woman-who-handed-back-her-adopted-disabled-threeyearold-son-says-i-didnt-abandon-him-10111992.html – decent well written article

BBC Radio 5 Breakfast Live – Monday 16th March 2015 – http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02m35g3  really well balanced report

BBC 3 Counties Radio– Monday 16th March 2015 – misleading to the public overall  but four decent supporters out of 5.

The Daily Mail online Tuesday 10th March 2015 – – http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2986483/Mother-reveals-gave-adopted-toddler.html Unfortunately this article makes it sound like I just gave him back and doesn’t represent any of the reality of my situation in anyway.  Huge backlash to this story and I find it staggeringly painful. Before you comment on this story , please note it is NOT my true story.

The Times  – Monday 9th March 2015 http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/life/article4375098.ece – This is a decent and well balanced article

Reporters if you need any clarification on legal dilemmas and clarifications required with my story please contact Solicitor Nigel Priestley  – thank you.
