Absolutely tragic. We have two adopted children, and I can tell you, even when everything goes right, it's not an easy process. Maybe laws have changed today, but when we adopted, 22 and 19 years ago, there were plenty of cases in the news where adopted children were taken from their adoptive parents to be returned to a birth parent who changed her/his mind. While unlikely, the fear was real, and only gradually diminished over time. For me, it took about four years before I was no longer worried. But, all that said, my children are wonderful, healthy, loving people, and I cannot understand why Indian children are deprived, in the name of "culture", of a family that would nurture them. Cruel.
