We live in an age where it is easier to get information within seconds on any topic. The electronic media is filled with information related to adoption making it seem very simple and easy but in reality the scenario is different. The procedure for adopting a child in India is a protracted struggle therefore resulting in low adoption rates. The low adoption rates are also due to the stigma related to adoption. In India people are not very open minded when it comes to adoption. With the ongoing pandemic, people are aware about the physical consequences of corona virus which has increased covid fatalities leaving Lakhs of children orphaned, globally. This has made the orphan children vulnerable to illegal adoption, child trafficking, kidnapping, child labour and also in many cases leaving them unattended or disowning them by relatives causing them grievous mental trauma. No place to go, many children have committed suicide. Also after adoption, in many cases it has been seen that the children are not treated properly increasing the child's suffering. This article will highlight the issue involved in adoption and will also suggest some points which if followed could improve the life of orphan children. The government should look into the grievances of these orphan children and should expedite the procedure for adopting a child in India. The work of the government should not be stopped once the adoption takes place, it should keep a follow up to certain age about the conditions of the children adopted.
