We are adopting from China. I have heard that Guatemala, Russia, India and Vietnam also adopt out internationally. Many, many countries have children available for intercountry adoption. For a few years Vietnam put a ban on it, but recently lifted this ban. Some countries are very particular about who can adopt. For example Korea insists that you meet certain weight requirements! If you are over 30% of the ideal weight for someone of your height they won't consider you. Other countries won't allow you to adopt: * unless you can prove you are infertile * if you have been divorced more than once * if you have more than a certain number of children already in your home Your age is also important depending on your preference for the child's age. Generally, the older you are, the older the child you will be eligible for. Answer>>>>>> My teacher is adopting a baby from India.
