- The mother of three is now is a new relationship
- Social workers rejected offers of help from 29-year- old mother's family
- Child, three, has now been forcibly adopted
- Case exemplifies 'disturbing' pattern of social workers taking children for adoption rather than keeping them with their biological parents, says MP
A desperate mother risks being jailed for defying a judge’s order to remove messages she posted on Facebook begging for her three-year-old son not to be taken from her and adopted.
The woman, a carer for the elderly, was served with a High Court injunction to take down the posts because they could distress the child.
Last week the 29-year-old mother said: ‘I told the judge I wouldn’t take down the posts. He said I could lose my job and go to prison, but what is a job when you have had your child taken away?’
The mother, who cannot be named for legal reasons has posted messages on Facebook looking for the return of her children even though a judge has ordered her to take them down, picture posed by a model
Social workers in Lincolnshire put the boy up for adoption because the mother, who cannot be named for legal reasons, had resumed a relationship with the father after he was jailed for domestic violence against her.
Despite ending the relationship weeks later, she was told she was not fit to take care of her son and has failed in successive attempts to stop him being adopted.
Last night, Lib Dem MP John Hemming, who campaigns on the issue, said the case exemplified the ‘disturbing’ pattern of social workers who take young children for adoption rather than find ways of keeping them with their biological parents.
He added: ‘A victim of domestic violence is being re-victimised by losing her child.’
