India Adoption Program Update
by Lisa Adams-Reese, India Program Director
Are you considering adoption? Are you hoping to add a child to your family? Our well-established India program successfully connects children of all ages and needs with loving families. In fact, we are pleased to share that this year, our referrals of children from India have increased by 20% compared to last year.
However, countless children in India still wait for a family of their own.
These children range in age and have minor to moderate special needs. We firmly believe God values all his children equally, and every child deserves a loving home, regardless of their circumstances. Our India team is dedicated to finding the perfect match for each specific family. Many of our families wish to adopt a 0-2-year-old girl. Referral timeframes can be lengthier for a girl than for families who are open to adopting a boy, as the referral process for boys is usually much shorter.
A streamlined adoption process in India is shortening the wait times for families.
CARA (Central Adoption Resource Authority) recently streamlined the adoption process in India. The District Ministry, instead of the courts, now handles adoption. This new process has significantly accelerated the adoption journey for many of our families. In fact, ten families have had their adoptions approved through this new process in the past couple of months. Last month alone, we witnessed four children join their forever families. This heartwarming experience is what motivates our commitment to the India program, and we eagerly anticipate many more children being united with their families in less time than in years past.
