CARA (Central Adoption Resource Agency) recently announced new Guidelines Governing Adoption of Children, 2015 which went into effect August 1, 2015. The intent of these new guidelines is to reduce the wait time for adoptions from India as well as to make the process more transparent. Significant changes include:
CARA will be doing the matching and agencies will then work with the Specialized Adoption Agency (SAA) that is responsible for that child. Families will no longer be assigned to a particular orphanage (RIPA).
