Latvian toddler must be adopted by English couple, Family Court judge rules
A Latvian family who wanted to prevent a toddler being adopted in England have lost a Family Court fight.
The boy, who is now 14 months old, was placed with the couple who want to adopt him when he was several weeks old and has lived with them ever since.
His parents, who moved to England seven years ago, wanted him returned to their care - his maternal grandmother had also offered to let him live with her in Latvia.
But a judge has concluded that the boy's best interests will be best served if he remains in the "loving care" of the couple he lives with and is adopted.
