Denise Robertson on the secret lives of Britain's stolen children

...they deserve better than stolen good. You do not heal the hole in one family by creating a hole in another.

– Denise Robertson on adoptive parents

The UK's most loved Agony Aunt Denise Robertson joined us this lunchtime to talk about her latest novel ‘Don't Cry Aloud'. Based on real life events and a letter she received from distraught mum, Nicky Webber, Denise was inspired to write about the “secrecy and the injustices of the family courts”, something that she feels passionately about.

The book tells the story of a couple whose children are forcibly removed by the family courts, something which Denise says happens all too often here in the UK...

"Without you we wouldn't have two beautiful children."

You are my last resort. I could go to prison for contacting you, but I can’t just sit here while they take my children away for ever.

– An extract from Nicky's letter to Agony Aunt Denise Robertson

The day Nicky and Mark Webber's children were forcibly removed from them was without doubt the worst of their lives. The couple made national headlines when they were forced to give up their three young children in 2004 when a court ruled that fractures to one of them had been caused intentionally.

Three years later, new scientific evidence came to light which showed that the boy could have suffered from a rare case of scurvy. The parents used this evidence to try to regain custody of but even though the Court of Appeal said it was possible that they were victims of a miscarriage of justice, it was too late to turn back the clock because “adoption was final”

After writing to agony aunt Denise Robertson the couple received help to regain the custody of two children. Inspired by this miscarriage of justice Denise's latest novel 'Don't cry aloud' is based on their story and here they say thanks for helping them regain their lives...
