Kilshaws complain of double standards

The Kilshaws, the couple at the centre of the internet adoption
controversy who tried unsuccessfully to adopt twin baby girls last
year, are claiming that another baby has been adopted in
‘identical circumstances’, writes Alex
They claim that the new adoptive parents are being allowed to keep
the child without intervention from social services. They say the
adoption, like theirs went ahead after a private home study
Alan and Judith Kilshaw allege that this shows that social services
are operating a system of double standards.
“We do not want this baby sent back, but what we do want to do is
to make the point that the social services department should act
fairly and that each case should be treated in the same way. We
have known about this child for some time, and we are aware that
there are some 600 other cases in the UK” Alan Kilshaw said.
A spokesperson for the council concerned said: “Whenever dealing
with issues involving children, the council quite properly regards
the wellbeing of those children as its paramount concern. Each case
is unique and is dealt with according to its own facts. Those facts
are of course confidential and the council is unable to enter into
public discussion of them.”
The new adoptive family has taken out an injunction against the
Kilshaws and the media preventing the disclosure of the identity of
the child.
