Long shot, but there's such a wide spectrum of knowledge on here, I'm hoping someone might have the answer.
If a child's parents die, and a family member (aunt) wants to adopt her, would the child be placed in care while the process is underway? The child is about five, starts off not knowing the aunt very well but an obvious bond develops between them. Child has a grandmother who is in poor health and has no objections.
Any info gratefully received
