Process of children entering the Adoption Agencies

 

While we were studying Adoption / Orphanages,  most voluntary Adoption Agencies stated that they hardly have children available for adoption.

 

So we tried to understand the process of children entering the adoption agencies .

 

The process that we have understood from our research is as follows :

 

Process 1

 

- The child is surrendered by the parent at (usually) one of the following places: police station, government hospital, nursing home, children's home

- Parent signs a form to state the child is legally surrendered

- Organisation (police, hospital, nursing home or children's home) registers the child with the Child Welfare Committee (CWC)

- Child Welfare Committee allots the child to one of the following:

        Less than 6 years - child is eligible for adoption- alloted to a Government Home & Govt Approved Adoption Agency

        Child is between 6-18 years - alloted to a Government Home, or a Government Approved (Non Adoption) Children's home.

 

OR

 

Process 2

- The child is abandoned and reported when found to (usually) any of the following places: Police station, Government Hospital, Nursing Home, Children's's Home

- The organisation (Police station, Government Hospital, Nursing Home, Children's Home) files an FIR.

- The child is kept at a government run institution  for 3 months (in case of claims by relatives)

- The organisation where the child is kept registers the child with the Child Welfare Committee.

- If there is no claim then the Child Welfare Committee allots the child as follows :

        Less than 6 years for adoption - child is eligible for adoption- alloted to a Government Home & Govt Approved Adoption Agency

        Child is between 6-18 years - alloted to a Government Home, or a Government Approved (Non Adoption) Children's home.

 

Awaiting feedback and comments on the same .
