Alex and Dominic Bemrose know exactly what it’s like to face the care ‘thought police’.
They had to jump through hoops to prove to their local authority they could offer a child from a different culture and race a loving, nurturing home.
Before being approved as adoptive parents, they had to endure nine, three-hour interviews by a social worker and every aspect of their lives went under the microscope.
Their finances were examined with a fine-tooth comb. Their moral, religious and personal beliefs were scrutinised and even their sex lives were picked over. Family, friends and ex-partners were also interviewed.
‘Short of asking for inside leg measurements, absolutely everything was questioned which at times I found ludicrous and far more intrusive than necessary,’ says Alex, 50, from Middlesex.
