THE city council is resisting growing demands for an inquiry into its decision to allow a gay couple to adopt two city children against their grandparents’ wishes.
Christian charity Care has approached the local authority asking for assurances that the law was not broken when the grandparents’ protests were over-ruled. he grandparents have reportedly now lodged a formal complaint about the actions of social
work staff in a first step towards overturning the adoption. They claim they were pressured into giving up their carers’ rights and their wishes ignored. The council is legally obliged to consider the family’s views before deciding who should bring up the children.
Social work leaders insist they did take the grandparents’ feelings into account before deciding where to place the children.
The grandparents say they were told they must change their attitude and support the decision to place the children with a gay couple or never see the five-year-old boy and four-year-old girl again.
