Hi Kitty,

That is a good question.

Can you check your youngest child’s written care plan?
You could ask your adoption support worker, or your solicitor or the independent reviewing officer (the person who reviews your child’s care plan every 6 months) for a copy of the most recent care plan.

Sometimes, the care plan will say that the local authority should find prospective adopters within a certain timescale. If they cannot find adopters, then sometimes the local authority will decide to place a child in long term foster care. Or the local authority might ask the foster carers to apply for a special guardianship order.

To discuss further, you could call our advice line on 0808 801 0366.

Best wishes,
Suzie

Hi Kitty,

You can get the most recent care plan from the social worker, or the foster carer, or the adoption support worker (if you have one) or the independent reviewing officer.
About the age of your son, children become very attached to their main carer-so your son getting upset when she leaves is a sign that he is attaching in a healthy way to the foster carer.
When a child moves to prospective adopters, there will be a lot of support that will be put in place and the move is usually done over a few weeks.
I know it is worrying for you. Why don’t you contact your adoption support worker or the charity
After Adoption have an advice line for birth parents. 0800 0 568 578

Best wishes,
Suzie
