However, even if an adoption application is rejected, there are three further ways in which the child can legally remain in the care of the foster parents. One method is through an ordinary adoption. A birth mother who opposes the complete severing of ties in a special adoption might be persuaded to agree to an ordinary adoption in its place. This option might seem little different from a special adoption insofar as the dayto-day care of the child will rest with the adoptive parents. However, an ordinary adoption keeps the ties of inheritance between birth parents and child.
A birth mother who opposes the complete severing of ties in a special adoption might be persuaded to agree to an ordinary adoption in its place. This option might seem little different from a special adoption insofar as the dayto-day care of the child will rest with the adoptive parents. However, an ordinary adoption keeps the ties of inheritance between birth parents and child. Thus, in a case in Niigita prefecture, the CGC entrusted a child who had spent two years in an institution to foster parents who hoped to turn the placement into a special adoption.
This can be contrasted with ordinary adoptions where birth parents and adoptive parents often know and deal directly with each other and where there are not the same imperatives to secrecy. Where a judge believes that there is no need to sever all contact with the birth parents, a special adoption application may be rejected. In one case a child whose natural parents were married was cared for by her uncle and aunt after her mother had died two days after giving birth and her father, who worked irregular hours, was unable to care for her.
