Art. 1281.7.  Persons whose consent is required

A.  The parental rights of the parents of any child who has qualified as a foreign orphan or a convention adoptee are deemed to be terminated and no further consent to adoption or relinquishment of parental rights shall be required.

B.  Consent to the adoption shall be required of any custodial or supervisory agency which has placed the foreign orphan for adoption, except that the court may grant the adoption without the consent of an agency if  the court finds that the adoption is in the best interest of the child and that the agency has unreasonably withheld its consent.
