Bombay High Court annuls adoption after adoptive parents say they could not bond with child

The adoptive parents had been permitted to adopt the child from Mumbai on August 17, 2023 by the High Court on a joint petition filed by them and the orphanage, Bal Asha Trust.

Five months into the adoption, the adoptive parents approached the orphanage about the “uncontrollable bad behaviour and habits” of the child.

The orphanage advised the adoptive parents to undergo counseling sessions to understand the minor’s behavioural issues better and try remedial measures to address the alleged behavioural issues of the child.

During the second counseling session, the counselor found that the adoptive parents were not ready to keep the minor child as their own or take the required remedial measures to rectify the child’s eating habits

The counselor also found that the adoptive parents were not emotionally attached to the child, although the child was fond of the adoptive parents and their biological child.
