[2008] How social services are paid bonuses to snatch babies for adoption  The number of babies under one month old being taken into care for adoption is now running at almost four a day (a 300 per cent increase over a decade).  In total, 75 children of all ages are being removed from their parents every week before being handed over to new families.  Some of these may have been willingly given up for adoption, but critics of the Government's policy are convinced that the vast majority are taken by force.

When the truth came out, feeling the guilt of what she had been party to the young woman I met became addicted to drugs when the fostering money had run out. She went from a straight A student to 'Garbage' (Her words).''
