Abandonment is legally defined as the act of leaving a person without the necessities of life (food, shelter, lack of financial means, etc.) when it pertains to a child it is usually considered endangement. If the adult allows the child to reside in their home without attempting to resolve the situation by contacting the parents or authorities the law will presume the adult caregiver consented to the arrangement.
