Based on my experiences below, I submitted most recently
Abolish Adoptions without Parental Consent is live before the Petitions Committee of the EU Parliament. A fact finding mission of MEPs has been promised and conversations between officials in the EU Commission and UK representatives.

as well as these online platforms:
- Stop Forced Adoptions in the UK!
- The Secrecy of Family Courts should be lifted Now!
- Stop Secret Family Courts encouraging Forced Adoptions in the UK!
