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

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.

Question by Dolyn: What would happen if all aborted fetuses were put up for adoption?
I see so many people jump down other people’s throats about the abortion issue. Usually, the response I see the most is “you can always put it up for adoption.” Ok, lets pretend we live in a U.S. where every woman who would have had an abortion gave the baby up for adoption. Last year, in the U.S. only about 100,000 children (children total, not babies) were adopted. But, over 1 million abortions were performed. Sure, there are LOTS fo people on wait lists for a baby, but in just a few short years supply will greatly out number demand. Tell me, exactly what would the U.S do with all these unwanted children?
Answer by Mark S
The families who are on the back list for children would receive their child expeditiously. They wouldn’t have to go to another country if they didn’t want to.
We can put some on a list for people from other countries. But it seems as tho you may condone abortions to keep the adoptive child list manageable. That is just plain sick. Kill children, babies that have not had a chance to live just to manage a list. Is that what you are encouraging here?
Hitler could have used you and your thoughts.

I try not to put a label to my beliefs because then people will assume I believe in certain ideas based on that label.

Question by Someone Random: How much would it cost to adopt from over seas?
I’ve been doing a little research on how much it’d cost to adopt domestic and the price to adopt an infant is outrageous, and a little disturbing in my opinion. I was wondering if adopting an infant from over seas be less…. My wife and I can’t conceive a baby and we aren’t the richest people but still would love to start a family. Any information would be great.
Answer by Jacqueline
international adoptions can cost between 7 and 30 thousand, so it is actually more expensive.
