How you can adopt a child in India
Jaswant Singh

The Penguin Guide to Adoption in India

by Dr Alooma Lobe and Jayapriya Vasudevan; Penguin Books, New Delhi; Pages 127; Rs 150.

ADOPTIVE parenthood is not very popular in India although childless couples resort to various means to get a child. Some of these methods are rather bizarre and often involve acts that are violative of the law. Yet adoption does not always cross their minds.
It is, therefore, no surprise that the available literature on adoption rarely relates to problems that adoptive parents have to face in India. Yet there is a section of childless couples who do want to go for adoption but they find hardly anything in the bookstores that can give them any guidance in this regard.
This book can be regarded as a manual on adoption. It tells prospective adoptive parents how to go about the process of adoption, and how they can bring the child home. It also tells them what all they must ask themselves before starting the process and what they might expect from the child. There are examples to illustrate how such situations can be tackled.
You can get help from this book if you are an India resident and want to adopt a child from India, or if you are a non-resident Indian and want a child from India or if you are a foreigner and are looking for a child in India.
Then there are different types of applicants couples, single persons (never married, divorced or widowed) and people from different faiths. Their concerns are also discussed. A chapter deals with single parents and adoption.
There are case studies that can guide a person from the initial stage of deciding to adopt to actual adoption and its aftermath. The case studies, culled from counselling sessions, cover different scenarios and legal possibilities. These stories, narrated with names and other identifying information changed, illustrate situations a person is likely to face before, during and after adoption.
