Here, Angela, whose two eldest sons were adopted, asks that we acknowledge the pain and grief experienced by these families. She hopes we can start to see them in a different light and recognise their need for support.
Angela is a Trustee of Family Rights Group and a member of their parents’ panel, one of their expert panels made up of family members with lived experience of the child welfare and family justice system. Her two eldest children were adopted 15 years ago. She is now married with an 8 year old daughter who has had no local authority involvement whatsoever.
