I think this is next to impossible. Your only bet would be from Russia, and still you would be most likely to find a non-indigenous Russian street-child or what have you, and I must say it would be much more noble to adopt such a child.

The Norwegian, Swedish and Finnish Sami population are better off than most, and those few that are not, are cared for. In Russia, a country which doesn't offer anywhere near the welfare of the Nordic countries, the Sami have to live in a way that is more true to the original Sapmi lifestyle, and because of this I think it would be sad to remove a child from its culture.

How do you give up your rights to a child that is not mine and not have to pay child support?

I think you need to give us some more information. For example: have you had a DNA test done to verify that you are not the biological parent? What do you mean by "rights"? Did you formally adopt this child? Are you supporting this child financially? Alittle more info on your current living situation would be helpful.
