Pre-Adoption Workshop - Adoption of Older Children

By Wilma Correa | Donor Development & Communication - Senior Manager

“There are no unwanted children. Just unfound families.”

Child adoption is seen as an increasing trend in India and across the world. Most adoptions are either because the parents are not able to have their own kids or because they want to support and give a new lease of life to a child who has been left alone in the world. Earlier considered a taboo in India, adoption is now considered and spoken about freely in the Indian society.

Adopting an older child in India has unique challenges, needs and rewards.  A well-prepared family can help the adoptee feel embraced and supported. 

There are now more instances of older children adoptions in India. However, adoption in India is by itself an experience, with adoptive parents having to navigate many minefields and mentalities.  In this, an adoptive parent with an older child has different challenges.

As an organisation dedicated towards promoting adoptions in India, we had the unique opportunity of addressing a few couples who have been undergoing fertility treatment at a hospital in Pune, India. We were invited by the in-house doctors to conduct an Adoption awareness workshop with these potential parents.

Close to 50 participants were present and we spoke about adoption process in general & specifically focused on providing these parents with information on adopting older children & children with special needs.

We received appreciation & adoption enquiries from many participants present at the workshop. We will continue to engage with them & hope to have some of them convert into adoptive parents!
