Touched by Adoption

What the F#ck!  

Friday, 5 October 2007

I had an email today from John Hemming MP (one of the very very few MPs worthy of trusting) the email was around up of the latest adoption and family courts matters

I went to all the links, clicking all the related links along the way (as you do) and came across something that I couldn't quite believe. A couple who claim their adopted son was so emotionally disturbed he ruined their lives have won a damages claim against a council. The adoptive mother said her adopted son could be "a lovely little boy" for two-week periods.

The couple won damages for personal injuries; depression caused by the adoption; loss of earnings resulting from his needing constant supervision and the cost of the damage to their home caused by the boy.
I don't know where I was when this story was coming out, I must of been asleep. I don't remember anything of the case, but what the fuck! Who would they of sued if she had given birth to the child! Read full story

    Unconditional love?

    Could an adoptee sue a council if the adoptive parents screw them up?

    Exactly Simon! An adoptee can't even get someone to take them seriously never mind actually listen to them.
    Perhaps it should of been the adoptive parents who were sued, how many false promises do you rekon they fed the poor five year old?
    good to see you around si,
    love tina
