A neighborhood couple adopted a child a while back. The main criteria they saw, was if the skin colour & general appearance of that child is matching with them, so that it looks natural to others.

What are DhArmik criteria for any such adoption with respect to cast/class, age, region, religion, economy etc.?

Note: Certain tags are removed. See meta discussion: Delete tags: "scripture" and "dharma-shastras"

    @Sarvabhouma then someone has to make it synonymous. To me "scriptures" is broader or superset to "Dharma-Shastra". All "Dharma-Shastra" are "Shastra" (scriptures). But vice versa is not true. In fact we should get rid of both of these tags before anyone srikes a gold badge. – iammilind Mar 15 '18 at 6:42

    There is a smriti tag which is applicable for Dharma shastras and Puranas but it is redundant to use in questions for Puranas because there is a separate tag for that. So, there is an ambiguity in usage of Shastra, Dharma Shastra, Smriti tags. Yes, someone should start a discussion. Yes, we should get rid of ambiguous tags before some one strikes gold. That is why I asked a question on scripture tag. TBH, I feel there is no need of two tags on scriptures in this question. – Sarvabhouma Mar 15 '18 at 6:50

    @Rickross Just read the question. The criteria is in the question and not the tags."What are DhArmik criteria for any such adoption" . To me it is clear. Tags don't say what OP is looking for. The body or title does. – Sarvabhouma Mar 15 '18 at 10:06

    Knowing the guidelines on adoption is not off-topic. Obviously it is from Hinduism pov because it is asked here and absence of a certain tag doesn't make a question off-topic. – Sarvabhouma Mar 16 '18 at 10:35
