India in 20 years

Adoption discussion #5

We brought our baby girl home from India in March of this year, and our kids adore her as do we, her parents. Our 6 year old tells me that when she grows up and gets married that she is going to adopt from India too and she is going to let her whole family(meaning us) go along with them to India to get thier baby. This really warms my heart as it shows she loves having our little Sananda here with us. I would love for her to experience the same joy that we have bringing our little girl into our lives through adoption from India, but I am wondering what it will be like in 20 years and if she will even be able to do this. Indian adoption, as other countries, is always changing and we hope it will always be for the better of everyone. I am happy to see some new potential laws being looked over in India that will among other things, help the children and parents wait a shorter time to be together in adoption. I am curious what others think Indian adoptions will be like in 20 years, both domestic and internationally. Care to comment?

Great topic. I think in the next 20 years, there will be great change for good in regard to adoptions.

Some I can see is that people will be more open with their adoptive children, and it will not only be an option to receive children through adoption but also to place children for adoption become widely accepted which is much more difficult now.
