This commentary considers the recent House of Lords' decision in Re B (Adoption: Natural Parent). Having considered the effects of sole parent adoption on the rights and welfare of the child, particularly with respect to the child's identity needs, it is argued that the judgment of Lord Nicholls of Birkenhead is unfortunate in opening the door to the greater use of adoption in this unusual intra-familial context. The disappointing approach of Lord Nicholls of Birkenhead to the protection of children's rights under the Human Rights Act 1998 is also considered.
