“Media Reports of Family Courts Case and Family Justice Issues
Media reports we found notably balanced, accurate or otherwise helpful to transparency this week
Joanna Moorhead wrote in the Daily Mail about one couple’s experience of adopting through the Coram concurrent planning scheme in ‘Our maybe baby: A couple share their story of falling in love with an adopted baby they knew they might have to hand back’. The Coram concurrent planning scheme is a pioneering scheme running since 1999 not a revolutionary ‘new’ scheme, but the piece was otherwise accurate, realistic and sensitive to birth parents as well as adopters and children.
See Transparency Project discussion of several recent media portrayals of adopted children, including this one, if missed: Adoption Children: Demons or Angels?.
(And the Letter to the Times from the National Adoption and Fostering Service at the Maudsley Hospital on the harm to children from cuts to CAMHS in response to the Libby Purves piece on adoption in the Times).”
