How can you living in the US adopt a Sami child?

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.
