Loc: Pinellas Park, Florida
Here in the states, the children would have probably been remanded into their grandparents' care with supervised visits with their mother. If the mother successfully completed rehab and remained clean and sober for what ever time the courts defined, she would eventually regain custody.
I was born in Mar 1945. My mother was born in June 1899 and my father was born in Feb of 1895. You do the math. I was the 12th baby that my mother bore and my oldest sibling was born in 1919. I think they did alright.

That would make a lot of sense... what seems to have happened in this case is that social workers were working to an agenda primarily to help the gay adoptive parents have a family. Stage 1 was to play down the wishes of the children themselves that they be allowed to stay with their grandparents. Stage 2 was to find reasons why the grandparents could be turned down as carers and to persuade them that they were inadequate. Then Stage 3 was to dupe them into signing adoption papers, which would be irreversible, without revealing the sexuality of the adoptive parents. Had it been conducted as a foster care case instead of adoption the arrangements would have been reversible.
Well, not gay adoptive parents, (that's a given) and especially if they are 49! Gawd knows the world would come to an end.
You guys can't get off this gay trip, right? First yoyo, then Lea and now you. It's not about the world coming to an end but doing what's best for children.
This thread is supposed to be about the suitability of grandparents as carers. If you want to discuss the gay dimension what I said in a previous thread was that the best balance of parental stimuli is provided by parents of both sexes. What the article says is that:
"research shows overwhelmingly that children are best brought up by a mother and father"
If you really want to know more about it, why don't you contact the authors, Graham Grant and Marcello Mega of the Daily Mail?
And you are basing this newest burst of blinding insight on... What "everyone knows", or what Keymaker knows?
The former - what everyone (in the Child Care Department of Edinburgh Social Services that is) knows - that grandparents are too old and feeble to look after their own grandchildren when there are younger gay couples about... but what 90 per cent of everyone else in Scotland apparently don't know.
