Where: Bookable room 6, Union House, University of East Anglia campus, Norwich NR4 7TJ   Map -- and on Zoom.
The Disabled Mothers’ Rights Campaign, together with the Support Not Separation coalition, worked with Channel 5 News for a feature and research about disabled parents, mostly mothers.  It was broadcast on 25 January 2023.

Jean and her child Tye gave an emotional interview about the forced adoption they suffered.  They reunited after 17 years apart.  Jean says: “Time was stolen from us.” Tye says: “I could have had her growing up.  I could have had someone that fought for me relentlessly.  And I didn’t get that.  And I should have.”
