For both religious and Islamic reasons adoption is prohibited in Iraq. It is illegal for foreigners or non-Muslims to adopt Iraqi children. There is a guardianship system in place in Iraq allowing for families to care for an orphan without the child actually becoming a son or daughter. Foreigners are prohibited from becoming legal guardians of Iraqi children.

Visit our International Adoption Agency Directory for a list of adoption professionals and services.

I'm a young woman (over 18) who would love to give a child the best life she or he can have regardless of their background. I think that these 'laws' are insulting and ridiculous considering there are people out there with good intentions. There are countless of homeless children in Iraq that need loving homes, and it disgusts me that 'foreigners' aren't allowed to adopt them, all because they aren't from the same country/share the same faith. More needs to be done to put a stop to this injustice. #1
