PIXELATED in this photographare two proud parents doting on their newborn daughter.
But just like their identities in this photo, the familys future has been obliterated by a court system which, they claim, was determined to tear them apart. Just a short time after the snap was taken, the little girl who, along with her parents, cannot be identified due to a draconian injunction served on the Advertiser was forcibly taken from her Enfield home by social workers backed by police officers.
And now, following four years of heartbreaking struggle by the parents to get her back, during which judge after judge has publicly sympathised with their plight and innocence but remained unwilling to disagree with their fellow judges, she has been officially adopted by another couple.
Their only crime was for the father to be accused though never charged or convicted of injuring his son from a previous marriage by shaking him.
Perversely, the courts and his former partner allow him full unsupervised access to the boy and his sister, yet his daughter with his new wife was taken by social
workers on the vague subjective basis that she was at risk of potential future harm.
The father has consistently denied hurting his son and the couple were given a last chance to win their daughter back by challenging the accusation in the High Court in February.
