The process begins with the most difficult decision of all: the decision to remove a child from its birth family. This episode follows the social workers whose job it is to take children away from their parents and recommend whether they should ever return; and parents who are desperately fighting to keep their children. Child protection levels in Britain are at a record high. On average, one child is taken into care in Britain every 20 minutes and over 15,000 children were waiting to be adopted last year alone, double that of five years ago. With unparalleled access to the entire adoption process, this three part documentary series follows social workers, foster carers, birth parents and adopters as heart-wrenchingly difficult decisions are made about the future of some of Britain’s most vulnerable children.

You’re on the spot.” Lacy, 14, is an orphan, and a better description of her situation would be hard to imagine.
