Q&A: Would like to adopt a child from India…need some information please!?

Question by Jess: Would like to adopt a child from India…need some information please!?
I am getting married in less than 2 months and my fiance and i are beginning to look into adoption organizations in India.

I am aware that we will not be considered for application until we’ve been married for approximately 2 years….but we’re doing the research now so when we do want to adopt, we will have a plan.

The problem we’ve been encountering is that many adoption agencies give preference to Indian families in inter-country adoptions. My fiance and I are Bosnian, and Swedish, respectively, so we’re finding it difficult to find an agency that would be willing to work with us.

If you’ve adopted from India, know someone who has, or are otherwise familiar with the process I would be very appreciative if you could share what you know.

Thanks so much for all of your help!
Just in case it comes up again; We are not adopting from India solely because we want to “help” the less fortunate. If that was our sole motivation we wpuld not be focused on any particular country and would likely adopt from the US.

The truth of the matter is that both my fiance and I traveled to India about 5 years ago and fell in love with the people, and culture.

And by the way…the United States isn’t recognized as being overpopulated. Our population density/square mile is less than virtually every developed country. But thanks for your concern.
…I should’ve clarified, we are citizens of and are living in the U.S.
To the final comment; your answer presupposes that every race is distinguishable from one another beginning at birth. Your asenine response exemplifies the epitome of American ignorance. If my husband and I were to adopt an infant from India (or any other country for that matter) we would be as qualified to raise that child as a child from Bosnia, Sweden, or the U.S.

How do you explain that so many children adopted from other nations live happy, well-adjusted lives when their parents are from a different “culture” than their own?

If you were a knowledgable human rights activist you would understand that culture is acquired, not innate, therefore a child from India could be raised as an American without any repercussions…just as an American child could be raised in India without any ill-effects or counter-culturally turmoil.

I know its all good to try to help people, but adopting from other countries is just overpopulating the U.S, adopt in the U.S

You aren’t wasting your time. Single men can and do adopt just in smaller numbers than single women or married couples.

Its great that you are interesting in adopting an older child. Foster care would be the way you would go for adopting an older child. Just do a search for adoption in your county/state. So for me I would do “wake county foster care adoption” which brings up my areas human services page and deals with adoptions through foster care. Not all areas handle adoptions the same way so you would need to start there and see what their requirements are and if they allow singles to adopt at all. There are some states that do not favor single adoptions regardless of the gender.

International adoptions generally are for younger children so thats probably not a good path to go on. Its also extremely expensive. Adopting through the foster care system is generally free or very low cost (under $ 1000 compared to $ 20,000+ internationally).

There are thousands of older children in the foster care system who are available for adoption as well as special needs children. One place to start looking would be www.adoptuskids.org

Good luck. It will be a long process but very much worth it in the end.

there’s one more thing i left out i’m gay and i wanted to also know does that make a difference with adopting?

Answer by momma to 2!
Well I do not think that with you being gay really matters, but they will want to be extra hard on you while screening process. I had a friend that was also and he went to try to adopt. they were much harder on him (which they admited). Just be careful and make sure you find the right agency.
