Overview

The India Adoption Program is stable with a long reputation of placing children. Children are available primarily due to poverty. Special consideration is given to individuals of Indian heritage. Non-Resident Indians (NRI) residing in the USA receive priority and may apply for young, non-special needs children. Families of non-Indian descent are eligible to adopt identified children with special needs through the Waiting International Children (WIC) program.  The 'special needs' designation includes any child over age 5 years, sibling groups of all ages, and children with minor/moderate special needs.  

Children Available for Adoption from India: In India, children who need families range in age from infants to preteens (8 months - 10 years). Sibling groups are also available. There are two separate adoption programs in India. The first applies only to those of Indian heritage. These families may adopt non-special needs children and infants. Singles and couples who are not of Indian descent may apply to the WIC (Waiting International Children) program, and adopt identified children. This is a great program for families who are open to parenting a child above the age of infancy.

  • One applicant must be a U.S. Citizen
  • Up to 4 children in the home are allowed.
