When political dogma is put before children's welfare

Two young children are to be adopted by a gay couple, because the grandparents (46 and 59) are considered too old. The mother of the children is a heroin addict.

The grandparents were told the children were going to a gay household, even though several heterosexual couples wanted them.When the grandfather protested, he was told: 'You can either accept it, and there's a chance you'll see the children twice a year, or you can take that stance and never see them again.'

The grandfather said: 'It breaks my heart to think that our grandchildren are being forced to grow up in an environment without a mother figure. We are not prejudiced, but I defy anyone to explain to us how this can be in their best interests.'

Social workers themselves have admitted that the little girl is 'more wary' of men than women.

It tells you everything you need to know about social services, and how rotten to the core they are. It's far more important to advance their own political agenda than to worry about anything so trivial as the children's welfare.
