British Prime Minister David Cameron has promised that adoption will become a faster process, finding a family will become streamlined for faster results and children at adoption homes will all appear on a nationwide adoption register meant for the UK and Wales.
The changes will be revealed in the Adoption Action Plan, expected next week.
No child should miss being part of a loving healthy family and it is top priority for the government to address the issue, said Cameron who will very soon be disclosing new plans to make the process of adoption lot more convenient.
Also on his agenda is to decrease the time required to find the child a caring and loving family. He is also trying to make the process of making inter-racial adoption hassle free and less time consuming.
The process of adoption usually takes as long as 23 months. With the new process suggested by Cameron, the child can be referred to the national register to find it a suitable family, after a three-month period.
The prime minister requested that there need not be delays on grounds of ethnicity and race and the agencies involved with adoption should try finding the child a loving family in the shortest period of time possible. He said he was shocked to note that black and ethnic children from other backgrounds had to wait twice as long as the white children to get placed with a family.
UK Education Secretary Michael Gove, himself an adopted child, has been trying to make the rules for adoption less cumbersome suggesting the process be less complex for white parents who wish to adopt black children and vice versa.
"If there is a loving family, ready and able to adopt a child, issues of ethnicity must not stand in the way," the Guardian quoted Gove as saying.
A fifth of adoptions currently break down, reports suggest, while children wait an average of two years and seven months to be adopted.
A BBC report said that the local government associations representing councils in England and Wales had requested to minimize paperwork that took a long time to be processed.
