India Vision Impairment Adoption: “Patrick” Waits for a Family

About a year ago, we shared about “Patrick, a little guy in India who was born with a missing eye but is otherwise healthy and developing normally.

Cute little “Patrick”, with his huge smile and now 5½-years-old, interacts well with staff and other children and is described as a very good boy.

If you would like to learn more about the process of adopting “Patrick” or other waiting children from India, please signup for our free informational webinar, “Adopting from India” on Wednesday, July 18th from 3:00-3:30 EST.  You can also contact our India team at or call 800-429-3369.

There are many “older” waiting children with minor special needs over the age of four who are waiting for families. Please pray with us for “Patrick” and share his story as we advocate for him to find his forever family.

This is a shared referral.

America World is a Hague-accredited adoption agency in India and currently has children in India who need forever families. Our experienced, caring India adoption team will provide personal attention to every detail of your adoption as we walk you through the entire procedure to adopt a child in India. America World has grown to be one of the most respected adoption agencies in India.

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. America World has the ability to work with registered RIPA’s and SAA’s that are licensed to complete an international adoption. America World 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.
