Re: Auntie/new to caring..urgent advice please..

Hi there. Just because a school is over subscribed doesnt necessarily mean that a place cant be 'found' You might have to apply, be rejected and then have to appeal using extenuating circumstances.

Id have thought in any custody case that the Childs wishes should be sought, but how much weight those wishes carries would depend on their age, what children want is not whats always in their best interest. A guardian should be appointed and they should visit with th...

Re: Financial Worries

Not sure what to suggest other than to say this. If you now have the SGO then the restrictions (and threats) you were under during proceedings should now be gone. You should now be in a position to make whatever arrangements you feel are appropriate for your family. As long as those arrangements don...

Re: Link

I agree with LLB, I dont see why wouldnt SGO be an option. I can kind of understand why some professionals would have reservations about couples this age adopting a child. Kate, I find it very shocking that people are being told to stop taking medication. The medication is there to maintain a person...

Re: Children's minister supports family & friends care

<t>As much as the man unnerves me, I have to say one of his suggestions could prove very useful. <br/> <br/> Hes suggested commissioning research into SGO's. My feeling is this could be an attempt to try and prove they breakdown and support his argument for adoption being the better choice. <br/> <b...
