    <p style=”margin-bottom: 11.25pt; line-height: 16.8pt;”><span style=”font-size: 9.5pt; font-family: ‘Arial’,sans-serif; color: #004d5d;”>Child adoption is a topic that has received undeservedly little attention in academic discussions and research in South Asia. Nevertheless, every year children in different South Asian countries are adopted both in-country and internationally. India tops the list of adoption in the region. In the last two decades, adoption policy and practice in India has undergone considerable change with a focus on advancing in-country adoption. While there is a sharp rise in the number of adoptive families and interest among people to adopt, but very little is known about adopted people and adoptive families’ lived experiences, and practices they perform to create a legitimate version of kinship.</span></p>
    <p style=”margin-bottom: 11.25pt; line-height: 16.8pt;”><span style=”font-size: 9.5pt; font-family: ‘Arial’,sans-serif; color: #004d5d;”>In the presentation, Sangita will share details of a study she conducted to illuminate everyday practices of the adoptive family lives in an environment where changing legal narratives contradict practice narratives. Sangita’s research is exploratory, ground-breaking and first of its kind in the Indian context to provide insight into the adoptive family lives as narrated within the specific local, social and cultural context to be elucidated in ways helpful to practice development on the ground.</span></p>
    <p style=”margin-bottom: 11.25pt; line-height: 16.8pt;”><span style=”font-size: 9.5pt; font-family: ‘Arial’,sans-serif; color: #004d5d;”>The research findings not only contribute to the thinness of adoption scholarship in South Asia, but also highlight the enduring effect of inherent ambiguities within which adoptive families negotiate their everyday lives, whilst indicating possibility and hope rather than intrinsic and unresolvable conflict. The study is useful for policymakers, practitioners and the adoption community to frame effective and relevant interventions, especially at a time when the government is undertaking an aggressive drive to promote in-country adoption that challenges the conventional notion of family in India. The unique socio-cultural dynamics reflected in the study are relevant to understanding adoptive family practices in the Indian/South Asian context in the UK and elsewhere.</span></p>
