How do you reverse an adoption in Texas?

Texas:

First the adoptive parent have to sign an affidavit of consent, or a relinquishment of the adopted person. This consent will become irrevocable after 11 days. It must be witnessed by two people and by someone who is authorized in Texas to take oaths.

If the child is an infant under 60 days old, he or she must be received by a qualified agent. That would be an emergency medical services provider, a hospital or a child-placing agency such as an adoption agency or the Department of Protective and Regulatory Services.

The child is placed in the custody of The Department of Protective and Regulatory Services and remains there until and if a new adoption takes place. The previous adoptive parents have no longer responsibilities for the child nor do they have any rights.
