In this section, we will feature research articles relating to adoption.
There is dearth of relevant data in India in the adoption ecosystem. We need to have proper governance of data and statistics and use it intelligently to arrive at better policies and framework in the adoption system. It does brings us to the point that law and policy makers seem to be operating at an immeasurable distance from the ground reality of the children who are waiting for families and for parents awaiting their chance to expand their family through adoption.
One needs to bring in all stakeholders involved in adoption , who can sensitize policy makers to the needs of parents and children so that a truly child and parent centered policies and programs can be formulated.
