Do you know this?

There are approximately 18000 parents registered with CARA, while the number of children in the Government's adoption pool is less 1800.

Adoption rate and more

Do you know what is adoption rate? Which country has the highest/ lowest adoption rate in the world?

I learnt at the CARA conference in 2007 from a British presenter that adoption rate refers to "One adoption per one thousand live birth in a geographical location (a country for example)".

Highest adoption rate is currently seen in ETHIOPIA.

Guess which country has the lowest adoption rate in the world? INDIA.

I guess this is not going to get better any time soon as we are nowhere close to controlling our population explosion.
