Adoption as a programme for rehabilitation of Orphaned and destitute children is one of the pioneering efforts of FSC initiated in 1962. The programme works on the basic principle of - Best interest of the child while helping the couple to build a family and rehabilitation on the Birth Mother.
Over the years not only has the process of adoption undergone a major change but Family Service Centre has also widened its area of interventions. We have seen changes in attitudes, acceptance of Adoption as a viable option for child in need of such care; and also not only the childless couples but even ones with biological kids are coming forward to adopt a child. JJ Act 2000 amended in 2006 is a legal document emphasizing the need to promote this programme as among the various non – institutional forms of rehabilitation of child, Adoption is one of the most recommended forms of permanent rehabilitation. It provides a loving and nurturing environment to the child; a family of its own.
Rehabilitation Of Birth Mother : Adoption begins with Birth Mothers who relinquish their babies. They are counseled about procedures, consequences and rehabilitation of child entrusted in our care.Even, the mothers are helped to move ahead in their lives by counseling them on life skills and positive attitude towards life.
