Prospective Adopters (AA and another) v CC and others

Adoption – Application. The welfare concerns raised by the Children's Guardian with respect to the applicant prospective adopter's adoption of an 18-year old, DD, did not outweigh the relevant factors, and DD's wishes and feelings, which were the determinative considerations in the case. Accordingly, the Family Court held that an adoption order was proportionate and would be made.
