The child was taken into care because of domestic violence between the parents. No prospective adopters the child is still with the foster carers. The form was sent back because the form was not filled in according to rule 47 and they sent us another form to fill in.
we appealed to because My grandchild was put up for adoption after a social worker had promised us that the law is they only put a child if there is no family to care for them. They did not assess us ,The child was put up for adoption we appealed an Independent Social Worker was appointed by court who did a thorough assessment of my family here and in Zimbabwe
where we come from and his final report was we should have a special guardian order. In the Psychologist was my grandchild was now afraid of black people when she sees books with pictures of black children she shouts ni**er,ni**er. In a meeting with the independent social worker, my grandchild's social worker, guardian ,the foster mother and myself the guardian repeatedly said to me [ I don't mean to offend you why is this child afraid of black people, can give us a reason why she hates black people so much] This is racial abuse. a violation on my rights. My son and his partner never consented to the adoption. Our grandchild was denied the right to be with her family, we were denied the right to care for our grandchild. without giving reason why. This is an abuse on our rights and our grandchild's rights.
My granddaughter was taken into care in February 2011. The matter was last heard on the 22nd May 2014 at The Royal Courts of Justice.
Order made by the Rt Hon Lord Justice Ryder on 22 May 2014 .
Decision refused as being totally without merit and the applicant may not request the decision to be reconsidered at an oral hearing.
The order made by the Magistrate on the 7 July 2011 was not opposed by the parents. The application for permission to appeal to this court has been refused .No appeal may be made against this decision to the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom : see s54  of access to Justice. The parties have exhausted the domestic appealing proccess.
The parents of my grandchild told their lawyers that the did not want the child to be put for adoption .They put it in writing that they didn't want the child put up for adoption they wanted the child to remain in the family.
This was never put by the lawyers to the Magistrate . They were never asked in court by the Magistrate if they wanted the child adopted. The final hearing was 17 18 19 August 2011 that never went ahead . They asked their lawyers why they didn't put their wishes to the magistrate and were told the case is not over yet there is a final hearing . you can oppose the decision .
