New senario of Adoption in India

By Lucy Mathews | Program Officer

Adoption till a few years back was a word/act which was a taboo in our society. Most of the couples could hardly talk among their friends or relatives about Adoption. And they knew that it would make people in the society raise their eyebrows. However, CSA took up this option of rehabilitation of the child by spreading awareness about adoption. Times have changed to quite an extent. Discussing adoption or planning to have a child through Adoption is not so much of a taboo any more as it used to be. The situation few years back was that many parents from city area were willing to adopt and children available was very less. CSA took up the task of survey and found that children are waiting in rural area and PAP are not willing to go to remote area. Therefore CSA made an effort to bridge this gap and divert parents to the area where children were available. This in turn have shown good positive result as the waiting time was cut down

I am sure most of us have gone through the stories like oh! My aunt’s son’s friend’s sister has an adopted child and she had a difficult time in adopting a child!! I call it the via-via information which does not help at all. We have tried to help the couples who are interested in getting the information on Adoption. Therefore willing parents kept approaching us for guidance. We also kept organizing training to different stakeholders like Social worker, Care givers, Adoption Lawyers etc. to make the process smoother.

Since 1st of August CARA (Central Adoption Resource Authority) have changed the guideline governing adoption in India. With the new changes the process is made online and faster. CSA could not refer parents to the children available with the new process. But new changes are yet to streamline and therefore PAP are still approaching us for information. We are playing our role to guide them with correct information.

Our effort is to get information on whether there are children available who can be eligible for adoption. But due to some or the other reason this best option of rehabilitation is not available for them. I am sure we will definitely come up with considerable number of children whom we can bring in adoption mainstream.
