Maybe some of this money could be used to support a forum for adopters other than prospective / early placement - as used to be available - in which experienced adopters are able to seek support / help others for the wide range of serious and complex issues affecting the children in their care. As suggested in the other thread - can the forum recover - as I think you mentioned there that plans would be proceeding to develop the site taking into account the issues raised earlier in that thread. This - the old forums - has been mentioned by several people, including me, as the most valuable source of support they have had when their children were younger and it is such a shame to be losing it.
