Re K (Adoption of Foreign National)

Adoption – Order. The Family Division, on an application for an adoption order in respect of a three-year-old child by a couple with whom she had been with since she was about eight months old, held that adoption was not only in the child's best interests, but that it was the only possible outcome that met her needs and that was capable of promoting her welfare throughout her life. The mother's consent to the making of an adoption order would be dispensed with, on the statutory ground that the welfare of the child required the order to be made.
