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

Domestic/International Adoption

Have you ever thought about orphans? Children in other countries suffering? If you think nothing of that then I hope this video will change your mind.

I am adopting from Guatemala. Anyone here experience this process?

Question by guatemama: I am adopting from Guatemala. Anyone here experience this process?
My husband and I are adopting a 2 yr old boy from Guatemala. We are in the PGN process right now and hope to bring him home this summer. I would love to hear from anyone that has adopted older children and had to overcome the language barrier. And advice would be welcome. We would like to keep him bilingual and I plan on taking a Spanish course this fall and taking our new son with me.
I guess I should have known I’d be asked why we didn’t adopt domestically. I’m used to answering it by now….though it’s kind of like asking someone “Why do you drive a Toyota instead of a Dodge?” The answer is….you do what you do and it’s no one else’s business really.

But the answer to WHY we went internationally instead of domestically is because we fell head over heals in love with a big brown eyed boy with chubby cheeks and a toothy grin that needed a pair of zapatos (shoes) as well as a mommy and daddy.

APs who adopted from foster care, have your views changed?

Question by Sunny: APs who adopted from foster care, have your views changed?
Have your views about infant adoption changed? Do you disagree with newborn adoption, or did you just want to adopt older children more than an infant?

Curious…

Answer by Kristi Howard
As with any adoption, I only agree with it when it is ABSOLUTELY the best and ONLY recourse that a child would have compared to living with their biological parents and/or family.

Oklahoma has a lot of meth addicted people. They are finding meth labs and taking away newborns from those homes almost daily here.

If those people can’t/don’t/won’t get their heads on straight and clean up for their children, nor would any family associated with them, then I know that you could not honestly say that staying with them, just on the basis of a genetic bond, is in that child’s best interests.

Myself, we wanted to adopt children that were older, because we know that younger children and infants have a better chance of being placed. Older doesn’t mean less deserving to receive love and comfort and a home.

I have never agreed with the abusive practices of private and agency adoptions, where they tend to convince a 16 year old woman that because of her age, she is not able to parent, and forces her decision because they have made her believe she was not capable.
