Grandparents have very little rights in this country & we feel they need to be addressed.
If a child comes to be known to the local Authorities Grand parents should have the first rights to care for the children adoption should be a option when you have no one who is capable of caring for a child.
Where there are half siblings involved it should still be that birth family are within the right's to care for their own Grand child and not be told that they are to be adopted just because there is no one suitable on the half siblings side to care for them.
Siblings do have a right to be brought up together but also half siblings have their rights to family life meaning in a case's like this before a court of law they should be allowed to be separated.
There are no Right's that state this as I have just been through a case myself where I have lost my Granddaughter because she is a half sibling to an older brother who was known to local Authorities and these two were separated from a third half sibling who is a younger brother.
So just where does justice lie in this country for the sake of our Grandchildren please address these Right's for Grandparent's an give us Grandparent's the right to give our children the love they need no one takes in to account the psychological effect's adoption & fostering as on a young child when they are passed around in the system.
The first thing you teach a child is not to go off with stranger's saddly in my granddaughter's case she knows no diffrance as she was sent to us with stranger's arriving to me heart broken.
So someone please answer how do you teach a child who as from a very young age (been birth) been passed around in the system an then taken away to adapt to a whole new family at the age of 2 years it really does distress you to think off the effect it is having on children that are at so young.
