More than 16,000 prospective parents have been waiting for over three years to adopt a child, with officials attributing the slowdown to availability of fewer children who are legally free for adoption.
There are 28,501 prospective parents who are in queue for adopting a child. Out of them, 16,155 prospective parents whose home study reports have been approved three years ago are still waiting in queue for adoption.
