A woman who had a baby with autism said she was “heartbroken” when she learned the child had been adopted by a stranger.
The woman, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, said she had hoped the adoption would help her daughter’s social skills but that when she read about the adoption her “heart broke”.
“I’m devastated,” the woman said.
“I knew I was a good mother, but I knew that my child wasn’t able to cope in a home environment, where they were expected to be socialised.”
Ms Jones, a nurse, said the adoption was “kind of weird”.
“She was born with autism and she is going to have to go through a lot of things that are really hard for children, to go from day to day, from one place to another,” she said.
