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

Shayna’s kids are acting like animals! Perhaps, because they are. No really, they are. While many of her friends were having multiple babies, Shayna decided to adopt multiple dogs. She said she wasn’t the type to have kids and despite the cultural expectation for women her age to give birth, she never heard that ‘internal clock’ ticking. Not one to give in to pressure and expectation, she happily has a husband and family of her own liking. Don’t tell Shayna her ‘kid’ is ugly, aggressive or just plain dumb, for she will defend like a mother bear for her cubs. These are not just her ‘dogs’, they are her babies. They are the first ones to greet her everyday upon arriving and leaving home. They never argue with her. They love to snuggle and give her kisses. If she’s having a bad day, they understand with their large marble eyes and crooked ears propped up, waiting to listen to her complaints.
Research indicates that having a pet is very therapeutic and actually relieves a lot of stress, can lower blood pressure and prolong life.
It’s like having a lifelong buddy who unconditionally loves you under any circumstances. For some people pets are their saving grace. They can brighten kids days in the hospital, make the elderly smile in homes, bring compassion in hard times and save lives (rescue, guard, seeing eye dogs). They are not judgmental on where they live. Have you ever seen homeless men walking with an unleashed dog by their side? They don’t run off and they don’t stray. It’s because that homeless guy is not just ‘homeless’, the dog sees a loyal parent.
So when one cold evening when Shayna arrived home, Mugsy wasn’t there with the others and she knew something was wrong.
She looked in every room until she saw him lying angelic like on the sofa, as if in deep sleep. Shayna’s memories came flooding in. Mugsy was there when she first moved out on her own. He was there when she graduated college. He was always there throughout the dating years anger and tears both! It seems a bit selfish to think of all the things Mugsy did for her, but that seemed to be Mugsy’s joy in life. He wouldn’t want it another way.
Shayna went through a depression. She didn’t think anyone would understand. Her friends would think it’s not like a ‘real’ human being, like if one of our children died. She agreed to an extent and then felt really guilty and ashamed. Others would think, just get another one. She felt alone without her Mugsy.
A loss of a loved one is hard. People go through different stages of grief, that are difficult but a normal process. People find their pets part of their family, and yes, can go through the same sadness as if losing a human family member or friend. Pets can bring a certain bond not like any other. There is nothing wrong with missing him/her and grieving. Just remember that you still have the warmth of your memories and made his/her life as well as yours a whole lot happier.
