The family is a fundamental social institution. Most people have been a part of a family at some point in their lives, and those who did not enjoy family life have suffered greatly throughout their lives. There are many benefits to living with family for an individual. From early childhood to old age, the existence of a family is a fundamental aspect of all human existence. A child's family is their first source of socialization, and how they are influenced by them in their early years can have a significant impact on how they turn out in life. When it comes to discipline and healthy relationships, the environment at home prepares a child for learning socially acceptable forms of behaviour. Unhealthy relationships within the family, the absence of one or both parents, and parents who do not act as role models for their children are all factors that negatively impact a child's development. The right of a child to have a family is fully acknowledged and implemented at the international and regional levels through conventions and other legislative and judicial processes. One of them that can offer a child a peaceful, loving, and understanding environment in which to grow is the "ADOPTION" process. The study is about the moral issues and legal problems faced by the adopting parents in India. There is no uniform law for adoption. There have been instances of abuse. The study examines the current issues and the emerging problems due to lack of proper adoption laws in India.
