The five-year-old boy and his four-year-old sister were being looked after by their grandparents because their mother, a recovering drug addict, was not considered capable.

But social workers stepped in after allegedly deciding that the couple, who are aged 59 and 46, were “too old” to look after the children.

They were allegedly stripped of their carer’s rights and informed they would be barred from seeing the children altogether unless they agreed to the same-sex adoption.

Yes, this happened in the UK, but ya wanna place bets on when it starts happening here?

    Heartbreaking! Those poor, poor kids
    I am so grateful my kids are adults so social services can’t get at them

    I think, Sherri, the world is coming to a place we won’t want to live in anymore. Maybe the rapture is close? :)

    3C, I’m nauseous thinking about those little kids ripped from grandparents who love them, and tossed into a den of horrors.

    Sara, I’ve given up that thinking. Now I KNOW something else is coming that will shock me or nauseate me or anger me.
