Anyone considering relinquishing a child for adoption with anyone other than relatives should speak to someone at Adoption Victoria or one of the approved agencies. Opportunity is given to fully discuss all the options, including arrangements other than adoption. If a person finally decides to relinquish a child for adoption, arrangements can be made for the child to be cared for before they are placed with an adoptive family (if necessary).
