Adoption is a beautiful experience providing us with a unique opportunity to look beyond our own need or desire (to adopt) and connect with another human being with selfless love and compassion.

While adopting a child, it is extremely important to revalidate our understanding, prejudices, assumptions, concerns and reasons to adopt through counselling, reading authentic content and meeting other families in adoption. It has to be borne in mind that evan as quite many of us may be adopting to fulfill some need of ours, adoption is the discovery of the kind of child we can support rather than the kind of child who will fulfill our need.

We recommend the approach presented below towards adoption, always keeping the interest of the child at the center. Parents need to register with CARA (www.cara.nic.in) for adopting a child. Suggested process and timeline for adoption is given below.
