Adopt an infant

Dear Mahdokht Sanati

I am hoping that you can help me in my decision .I am 23 years old married and I have a 4 month old baby boy I am very happy with my life. I married my love off my life when I was 19 years old I graduate from Azad University in Tehran from translating English to Farsi and I live in Canada right now. My husband is taking his PHD in petroleum engineering here.

My husband and I always think about adopting a child, my husband has this theory that if you want to have a child why bring one in this world while there is millions of children waiting for adoption and since I have a 4 month old baby I am looking for an infant to adopt so I can breath feed him or her so he or she can be my child (you probably know if I feed him for certain time he can be my rezae child).

I know it is difficult to find an infant and I know there is no agency in Iran and it is a long process that’s why I am starting to look for an infant now.

I want to know your idea about my decision and how can I find an infant I am even willing to move to Iran for a certain time to complete the process.

Thank you for your time

Child Adoption requirements from U.S. for Iranian Child

I am trying to find out the requirements needed for obtaining a visa for an adopted child in Iran. I was wondering if you knew the requirements needed to bring an adopted child from Iran to the United States ( ie. visa, etc. ). If you could please help me with this and send me an e-mail as soon as possible I would appreciate it. Thank you.

Dear Mom to Be,
To adopt a child from anywhere you have to open a file and request for adoption with IRS. ( all the inf. is in our web site) U.S. Gov. is very helpful and will give you a tax exempt as well as some founds.
After your request is processed, You will receive the visa for the child to enter the U.S.
Please chek Irandokht web sit for more detailed info.

My Wife's Sisters

I have recently married a girl in Iran who lost her parents 2 years ago in a car accident. She also has 2 younger sisters (both under 15). I am a Canadian citizen and am trying to bring my wife along with her 2 sisters to Canada. Unfortunately under the Canadian immigration laws, the 2 sisters are not classified as 'family members' and therefore I can not sponsor them. The only available option for me is to either have my wife (the eldest sister) to adopt the 2 younger sisters (all live in Iran) or for myself to adopt the 2 younger sisters and then bring them all together. The issues is that I can not separate my wife from her 2 sisters. After all, she is their legal guardian and their 'Mom'.

I am hoping you can provide me some legal or further information. As mentioned, I need some more information on the processes of adopting a child in Iran.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Best regards,
