Yesterday I listened to 'The Other Side of Adoption' on Radio 4 on Sunday 17 August 2015.

The blurb says...

"Tim Whewell investigates the challenges of life post-adoption, discovers the remarkable tenacity of many adoptive parents faced with challenging behaviour, and asks what changes are being made to improve the current situation where a quarter of adoptive families face serious difficulties."

Some bits are quite tough and disturbing so please be aware.

Some bits are also inspirational.

it was Frank and to the point, any thing from adopters mouth is valuable but it was 35 minutes long and I don't feel it was investigative more explorative. I hope the dedicate more time to this. Still waiting for caring for our foster kids to air it's final installment on BBC which aired 3 eps then stopped

It was good but as poetboy says too short to really explore it properly.

I didn't even know Protecting our Foster Kids had another episode, it's been so long I assumed there were just three!
