Relinquished Babies

  • I understand that if a parent wishes to relinquish the care of their baby that the adoption team should be notified immediately

  • I understand that the parent/s should engage in a series of counselling sessions with an adoption social worker in order to fully understand the legality and procedures around relinquishment

  • I understand that until a parent has signed a formal consent their decision to relinquish their baby may be withdrawn

  • I will ensure that I collect information for the child’s life story, including photographs and collate this when a parent wishes to relinquish the care of their baby

  • I have recorded all of my discussions with parents on the child’s file

  • I have updated the child’s chronology
