My husband and I want to adopt a child or siblings here in Malaysia. We are in our 40's so feel having our own may not be possible. We have been married for 6 years. I am a housewife and my husband has long term work here in KL. I spoke with the Welfare office in KL and was told that their Foster Child program is only for Malaysians but if I find a child available for adoption, it is possible for me to apply for adoption with the courts. The criteria required is: 1) obtain a birth certificate, 2) the parent must provide a certified affidavit that they are willingly giving up the child and 3) we provide a health screening on the child to make sure they are healthy. I am looking for orphanages that have babies up to 4 years to adopt. Does anyone have any information regarding babies available for adoption? We are non-muslim and must adopt non-muslim children.
