Adoption UK is a national charity that works with and on behalf of adoptive parents, prospective adopters and carers. All adopted children have suffered the loss of being separated from their birth families. Unfortunately many have also experienced neglect and/or abuse in those families. For many children, this trauma can lead to emotional, behavioural, educational or developmental difficulties.
A couple whose baby was taken into care after they were wrongly accused of abuse are unlikely to get their child back, according to their lawyer. Karrissa Cox and Richard Carter, both aged were found not guilty of causing injury to their baby.
