However the international community still disagrees on the point whether the option of being placed in a permanent family setting through international adoption should prevail on the alternative of the placement of children in domestic care institutions. During the evaluation of a referral, a family may choose to visit the child in India, to make their final decision, but such a visit is not required. While some of the procedures discussed - such as immigration procedures - are standard for all intercountry adoptions, others will vary by source country or by agency.

Do not allow yourself to be pressured into committing to a placement if you do not feel you have sufficient information or if you feel you have been rushed into making the decision. You can use a photo album, blank book, or bound book from a photo service such as snapfish.
