Map of India Except for adoption by Hindus, Indian law has no provision for adoption. Children are placed under guardianship of adopting parents to exit the country, and adoption must take place in the parents' home country. In 2011, U.S. citizens adopted approximately 226 children from India. Infants, young children, and special needs children are available for adoption, as well as some sibling groups. The children reside in orphanages.
