Adoption Difficult for U.S. Citizens if Child isn’t an Orphan

When a child from another country is not an orphan, it can be difficult for a U.S. citizen to adopt that child. Likely, the person looking to adopt would have to live in the other country for some time in order to adopt the child and bring them back. U.S. immigration laws keep adopted children and orphans in two separate categories. Before a parent can petition immigration for the adoption, they must have legal and actual custody of the child for about two years.
