American couple adopt the two-year-old boy

Two-year-old Sachin is going to lead a new life and enjoy abundant love and care of his ‘parents’ in a foreign country.

Being brought up at the Sishu Gruha here, he was given in an inter-country adoption to an American couple on Thursday.

Collector Kartikeya Misra handed over the child to Christian Paulson and Carolyn Mary, a childless couple from Chicago, in the presence of officials of the Women and Child Welfare Department. The couple, both employees of the US Federal Department, decided to adopt a child, and came across the Central Adoption Resource Authority’s (CARA) website and fulfilled the legal formalities. Mr. Misra advised the couple to take good care of the child by providing him all facilities and good education. ICDS Project Director D. Sukhajeevan Babu said a mentally-challenged woman from a neighbouring State gave birth to a male child at the government hospital in Rajamahendravaram on December 1, 2016, and the boy was being brought up in the Sishu Gruha, where he was given the name Sachin.

Details of Sachin were uploaded on the CARA’s website, and the American couple zeroed in on the boy when they decided to adopt a child from India.
