I was adopted into my wonderful family at the age of four months.
This gave me security and stability and the opportunity to become part of a wonderful family and enjoy a happy family life with the best chance of a successful future. The government are desperate for adoptive and foster families to offer love and care to the thousands of children in local authority care. When there are so many babies and children in this country in dire need of parental care and the opportunities I was given, I am appalled to read that some people may be misusing a law aiming to protect these children and give them the same opportunity of a family with permanence and stability that I was given. It is an absolute disgrace and it should be stopped. I hope Mrs Charnock-Bates and Mr Whittaker are successful with their campaign. I wish them the very best of luck.
