Thousands of children in Britain are left waiting to find new families as couples desperate to adopt struggle to wade through red tape.
This morning a new helpline is being launched by the Government to try and speed up the process, Families Minister Edward Timpson told ITV Daybreak that the process can take as long as two and half years.
He said that the Government aims to reform the whole of the adoption process and get the 4,000 children currently in care into a loving home.
