Dear InfoMgr, FinDMT,

the term forced adoption derives from the legalised snatching or kidnapping of a parents biological property, being a child or children by means of making false statements or declarations, or evidence is ignored my the courts.

Yours sincerely,

S. Prichard

You must get your terminology right...You are dealing with people who use their fingers as cork screws...and don't have even a hint of frustration or anger in your request, they will brand you as being vexatious. You are playing against loaded dice, marked decks and a dodgy roulette wheel.

Dear InfoMgr, FinDMT,

We refer to the terminology "forced adoption" as "forcing a child to be adopted without the parents consent"

I will rephrase question 1. I refer to applications made by your council to the family courts.

My team is having a vast amount of calls regarding social services falsifying concerns and removing children presenting cases to family courts using "copy and paste" from other cases or fictitious allegations.

I will give you an example of my personal case.

I was a professional trained in child protection. I reported concerns of my child. Social Services said it was "illegal and wrong" to report suspected child abuse. Social Services falsified investigations by police, concealed historic concerns of the alleged abuser (abuse to other children)and altered my child's medical reports to conceal abuse. I was ordered to be supervised and my child continued to disclose. Contact workers, now whistle blowers, reported concerns but were sacked for reporting concerns. The family courts said i was a risk to my child for exposing and proving corruption within social services. My concerns were backed by police. The family courts ignored police evidence that social services had lied in court.

Now would your council state that it was wrong to report abuse, falsify police investigations, sack employees who raise concerns, intimidate children to not speak out about abuse.

Would your council say that i was a risk for obtaining statements from other professionals that your council had altered their reports and refused to change them to what the other professionals has said.

That was the threshold met when my child was taken. I was doing as a parent what i was trained to do in my job, however instead of catching out criminals i was catching out social services.

Yours sincerely,

S. Prichard
