In England alone, there are 65,000 children in care. Last year, only one in 20 found a family to adopt them, according to the Government.

Adoption's a big issue at the moment with worries about the amount of time it takes for kids to be placed with new parents.

Even when parents are found it can take a long time for an adoption to be approved.

The government's admitted the process has to be made simpler and faster.
