India Adoption Program

Dillon International began placing children from India with U.S. families in 1986. Children become available for adoption in India primarily because of the extreme economic disadvantages of their birth families and the social stigma of single parenthood.


For Indian Heritage families: Families with Non-Resident Indian (NRI) status will have their adoption treated on-par with a domestic Indian adoption. NRI means one spouse needs to be a U.S. citizen and the other spouse needs to be an Indian citizen with a valid Indian passport
