Families Needed for Indian Children

America World has been licensed to work in India since 2006. Over the years, America World Adoption staff members have had the privilege of meeting CARA adoption officials, US Embassy staff members and representatives from over 30 orphanages across India. It currently employs full and part-time staff in India to facilitate the adoption process and provide guide services to families while they are traveling in India.

The children available for adoption from India have ranged in age from infants to teenagers with medical needs such as HIV, blood conditions, heart conditions, vision impairment, hearing impairment, cleft lip and palate, cerebral palsy, developmental delays, and other correctable medical conditions.

Families who are of Indian heritage and have either OCI or NRI status may request to adopt healthy children. However, all foreign families must be open to adopting a child with a medical need, a sibling set or a healthy older child.

India follows the best practices and standards according to the Hague international adoption guidelines to try to reunite the child with their biological family if at all possible, and when not possible to seek a domestic and then international adoptive family.

If you are considering adopting a child from India who needs a forever family, our India team would love to talk with you to answer all your questions. Contact them at India@awaa.org or call 800-429-3369.  Be sure to request our free adoption information booklet for a broader view of all America World’s mission of building families according to God’s design of adoption, while caring for vulnerable children around the world.
