How Forced Adoptions and the Secrecy in Family Courts work – as an evil system

A 2-hour interview with Theo Chalmers of Edge Media TV gives a brilliant overview of the shortcomings of a system that needs overhauling badly.

On this blog post I have put a few bullet points together for each of the video parts.


Evidence on Adoption before the Education Committee investigating Child Protection

It’s a great relief that a select committee in the Commons is actually looking into child protection!

Fortunately, John was invited to give evidence today, Tuesday, 13th December 2011.

Whilst the focus was on ‘adoption’, he did make it clear that there are too many wrongful care decisions and that parents who oppose care orders virtually never win.

He also pointed out that the secret legal proceedings are not working and that these important decisions should follow the approach of caseworker conferences.
