Paula’s Story

Kinship Placement

A baby girl was abandoned in a Quebec hospital, but before leaving her little girl, the mother named her baby Paula and left contact information for kin in Australia, so the local child protection agency was called in.

The Australian child protection agency contacted the maternal grandmother and maternal aunt who said they would like to (jointly) raise the child.

Even though the aunt was an independent adult, she moved in with her mother (the baby’s grandmother) so they could create a home for the child.

After a local agency in Australia performed a home the aunt and grandmother came to Québec to learn routine and bond with the baby. The baby and her new family returned to Australia where they receive support from local authorities.
