How can I adopt a newborn from a crowded orphanage overseas?

Question by thatgirl90: How can I adopt a newborn from a crowded orphanage overseas?
I have heard horror stories and want to adopt one of these severely neglected babies before attachment disorder sets in. I already have one child of my own, am married, 30 years old etc. How does one go about rescuing a baby like this? I have looked into it a bit and am shocked and disgusted about people wanting upwards of $ 10,000 for these children who are in dire need.
I apologize, I should have been more careful in my wording (ie: “rescue.”)

  1. I would be careful
    I saw on a TV show, that some country’s have no law
    That you can give money, and not get the baby

    I would look into an adoption agency that specialize in overseas adoptions

  2. International adoption involves a lengthy legal process that isn’t cheap. It’s the process that you are paying for. If you are interested in international adoption, a great book is “How to Adopt Internationally”. It’ll take you step by step through the process, including how to choose a licensed, reputable agency.

    I’m going to also suggest that you take an honest look at your life and your motivations for international adoption. Babies are very rarely available for adoption. Most children are toddlers at the youngest, with school age children being more common. Also, wanting to “rescue” a child can set up the child with a burden of feeling grateful for something that every child deserves unconditionally: a safe, stable and loving home.

    Do your research very carefully. Talk with international adoption agencies. Make sure everyone in your family is ready for this.

    If you have specific questions, feel free to drop me an email.

    Good luck!

  3. I am surprised that people do not understand that providing families for babies costs money. Who is going to make all the arrangements, approve the families, identify and assess the children, pay for the advertising so you know how to contact an agency? Or their phones, paper, offices, employees salaries, lawyers, support of the orphanage, etc. I can see that you are so well motivated, but you must know that the countries put their children in the orphanages, and there is a lot of red tape to get one out! It is not simply about flying to country X and picking up the baby and flying home, living happily ever after. These countries have the ability to care for these children in many cases. That is what makes me so angry. Instead, they leave it up to Americans (mostly) to take care of their children. And that is when it becomes complicated. The process becomes multi-layered, involves a lot of people, secretaries, the courts, judges, attorneys, Social Workers, caretakers, chaperones, etc. All of that costs, in any country, in any kind of work.

    When people say to adopt through the state, because it’s free, that is far from the truth. It is very expensive. But it is subsidized by our tax dollars. So when a child is placed through the state, we have all paid a small portion of that family’s adoption. The state’s adoption and foster care programs are multi billion dollar operations, paid for by every tax paying American.

  4. i would adopt a kid here alot of kids want homes its up to you but look for an honest a agency and its gonna cost big bucks more than 10,000 dollars to let you know its hard to get some kids out of certain countries lookm around and good luck
