Your child will be examined by a doctor. Than your child will come under the responsibility of the OCMV (Openbare Centra voor Maatschappelijk Welzijn - Public centre for the wellbeing of society - this is a governmental body). The chairman of the OCMV will become the interim guardian for the baby. He/She will contact an institution that takes care of adoptions. Within one month your child will find a new home in an adopting family. Being the mother you have a 6 months period that still allows you to get back your child. After that period of 6 months the ‘new' parents can apply for the definitive adoption.
