For many years the author has been involved in developing peer support and a campaigning network of disabled parents in the UK. While disabled children and adoption have been the focus of some debate, the issue of adoption has received far too little attention in relation to disabled adults. This article seeks to redress the balance by looking first at how children with disabled parents are over-represented in the looked after system. The author goes on to discuss the ways in which disabled people are overlooked as potential.
