Concerns were raised after protests from the Somali community against the adoption of a child by a lesbian couple.
The adoption has since been put on hold, but council leader Cllr Susan Hall says there is clearly a need for potential foster and adoptive parents from different ethnic backgrounds to come forward as recruits.
She said: “The most important thing is that the child goes to a loving and supportive home and to people we believe, on the basis of thorough assessment, are best suited to look after them.”
