Basic Adoption Process-1


The wish to adopt a child comes pure­ly from the heart. Yet, oth­er aspects such as the finan­cial, legal and pro­ce­du­ral too need to be looked at. Chil­dren placed for adop­tion have no one to speak for them, except the adop­tion laws and pro­ce­dures framed to pro­tect them.

Before adopt­ing a child in INDIA, remem­ber to reg­is­ter for adop­tion with either an Adop­tion Coor­di­nat­ing Agen­cy (ACA) in each state’s cap­i­tal city, or an agen­cy cer­ti­fied by the Cen­tral Adop­tion Resource Author­i­ty (CARA) in New Del­hi. CARA is a divi­sion of the Min­istry of Wom­en and Child Devel­op­ment.

If you adopt from unli­censed orphan­ages or Children’s Homes, the streets, hos­pi­tals, lawyers, doc­tors or social work­ers you can get into trou­ble with the Law.

Fun­da­men­tal prin­ci­ples gov­ern­ing adop­tion. - The fol­low­ing fun­da­men­tal prin­ci­ples shall gov­ern adop­tions of chil­dren from India, name­ly, -

(a)     the child’s best inter­ests shall be of para­mount con­sid­er­a­tion, while pro­cess­ing any adop­tion place­ment;

(b)     pref­er­ence shall be given to place the child in adop­tion with Indi­an cit­i­zens, with due regard to the prin­ci­ple of place­ment of the child in his own socio-cul­tur­al envi­ron­ment, as far as pos­si­ble.

 Child eli­gi­ble for adop­tion. - Any orphan or aban­doned or sur­ren­dered child, declared legal­ly free for adop­tion by the Child Wel­fare Com­mit­tee is eli­gi­ble for adop­tion.

  1. You are doing an absolute­ly beau­ti­ful thing by mak­ing your read­ers aware about the process of adop­tion. I would def­i­nite­ly come back to read the lat­er part to know the oth­er pro­ce­dures. 🙂

  2. My par­ents tried to adopt years after they had me, but the adop­tion nev­er came through. A num­ber of peo­ple in my life have adopt­ed — many from oth­er coun­tries (Korea, Chi­na — I live in the Unit­ed States). It can be a dif­fi­cult — and expen­sive — process. But, almost always, it has been so reward­ing.

    • Ya!! I do under­stand the process and legal for­mal­i­ties are some­times not known prop­er­ly … just try­ing my bit to share what I learned from the process in INDIA though CARA 🙂

  3. Its high time as a soci­ety we encour­aged adop­tion. One of the prime rea­sons, many dont go for it is the lack of basic infor­ma­tion and glad your post details it. Yet, the atti­tude must change at the grass­root lev­el and once must accept adop­tion with open arms.
