The facts of the adoption case
Case transcript: Re P  EW Misc 20 (CC)
P was born on 24 August 2012 in England, while her mother (known in this case as A, but in the caesarean decision as AA) was in the country for work purposes. Both A and B (P’s father) live in Italy; she is an Italian citizen, he is not. P was subject to an interim care order from birth, and this was continually renewed under section 38 of the Children Act (CA) 1989.
