More on adoption from the Government

The Government clearly can't leave adoption alone - hardly a week seems to pass without some new government initiative aimed at improving the adoption system. The latest move, unveiled by Children and Families Minister Edward Timpson (above), is that councils could lose their powers over adoption services if they take too long to find adoptive parents.

I'm not qualified to comment on the move, but I just hope that too much meddling by politicians out to justify their existence doesn't make a bad situation worse.
