T he Board also made twenty two Irish adoption orders for children from overseas, seventeen in respect of children from Guatemala, two in respect of children from India, two in respect of children from Paraguay and one in respect of a child from Lebanon. T he children from Guatemala, Paraguay and Lebanon were the subject of "simple" adoptions in these countries and as "simple" adoptions are not recognisable under Irish law the adoptive parents had to apply, with the consent of the birth parents, for Irish adoption orders in respect of the children. In the case of the children from India the prospective adoptive parents were granted guardianship orders in respect of the children by the Indian High Court for the specific purpose of adopting the children under Irish law. The adoptive parents in all these cases were deemed eligible and suitable to adopt outside the State by the Board in advance of arranging the adoptions. See Tables
