There are over 600 children on India’s CARINGs site. Many with minor and/or correctable special needs.
Waiting Children are between 6 months and 16 years of age. There are four categories: no known health issues (NRI Only), physically challenged, mentally challenged, and multiple disability.
CHI requires families to be open to considering a child with minor/correctable needs. CHI will not accept applications from families hoping to adopt only healthy young babies.
NOTE: NRI/OCI families have a different process. Contact us today for details.
