The child is living with a relative who is unable or unwilling to adopt the child because of circumstances that do not include
an unwillingness to accept legal or financial responsibility for the child, but who is willing and capable of providing the child

longer needed.

exceptional circumstances that do not include an unwillingness to accept legal or financial responsibility for the child, but
