  1. i know of a couple who adopted a girl child from a very well known charitable place but then they had not checked much. The baby turned out to be mentally disbalanced. But this couple gave her a wonderful life. Shifted to Canada and gave her good education and she’s doing good now. They adopted a second girl child too.
