Christian Voice is currently preparing a major feature for our upcoming newsletter on the evils of forced adoptions in Britain. As our report was being prepared, news broke about another heartrending story.
Sam, 23, had her baby Angela removed from her in 2009 when Social Services concluded she was psychologically damaged and therefore unfit to be a mother. Social workers have also threatened to remove any future children Sam bears. However, independent psychologists who analysed Angela have said she is fine.
Christian Voice has been in touch with Ted Jeory, the journalist from the Express who covered the story, and he reports that Sam is still waiting for a verdict that will determine whether she is allowed to have her daughter back.
The trouble started on the very day Sam gave birth to Angela in late 2008. Because Sam had grown up with 12 sets of foster parents, social services believed she must be psychologically scarred and so they placed her and her newborn in a family assessment unit with drug users and alcohol abusers.
Six months into the observations social workers claimed that mother and daughter were not bonding sufficiently and that Angela should be placed in care.
Last year Sam asked the European Court of Human Rights to intervene, after she had exhausted all ordinary legal channels.
“It killed me and it still does,” she was quoted by the Express as saying.
“I was treated like a criminal in there. I really didn’t feel I was given any help and they wanted me to fail. They said I wasn’t bonding and that she was losing weight. I’d had post-natal depression but I was bonding with her.
“She was and is so special to me. I still have nightmares about the day they took her from me. She was clinging to me, she knew something was wrong, she was upset.
“I had to put her into the social worker’s car and she started screaming. I wasn’t allowed to do anything. They just made crystal-ball predictions without giving me a chance. I wanted another assessment but they refused.”
When will this evil of social workers stealing children stop?
