Adoption

Objectives of the Specialized Adoption Agency

About the Agency

The process of Adoption in our state is neither professional or legal. Adoption is done on the basis of mutual understanding between families or through hospitals by handing the baby over to prospective parents. Thus, this lead to insecurity of the child. No follow up or records on the whereabouts of the child is maintained.

An important aim of the Specialized Adoption Agency(SAA) is to reduce the placement of abandoned, orphan, surrendered children in an institutional setup. The absence of the SAA, results in a large percentage of the abandoned, orphan and surrendered children being placed in an institutional setup, which could prove detrimental to the child's physical, mental and emotional growth.

A well organized body is required to tackle the rising number of abandoned children & orphans in the state. Reach Shillong Ministries, through its project Lawei Baphyrnai Children Home, accommodates 15 children. 6 of them are abandoned. The question that comes up every time we interact with these children is "Where are they going to go, a few years down the line?". This is where the SSA comes in.

The SSA provides a home and a family to children who don't have one. It also handles cases of children who have suffered abuse. It gives love to neglected children who have never known love. In order to make sure that all the above are met, Proper Monitoring is important.

The SSA ensures that all adoptable children in all Child Care Institutions (CCIs) are brought into the adoption system; The SSA aims to change the common perception on Adoption. Adoption is often regarded as taboo. It is something people don’t discuss openly. Consequently it leads to stigma. Thus, by having a SAA, the Agency can motivate people to adopt by organizing training and development activities to spread awareness about the Programme.
