U.K. to Let Approved Adopters Foster First, Cameron Tells Times

July 05, 2012

The U.K. government is planning a law to make it standard practice for approved adoptive parents to foster children before adoption to provide a more-stable start for adoptees, the London-based Times reported, citing an interview with Prime Minister David Cameron.

Under the new plan, babies will first be fostered by approved adopters to “help provide a stable home at a much earlier stage in a child’s life,” Cameron said.
