American couple allowed to adopt slow-learner Indian kid

The committee told the court that the adopting parents - Craig Lallen Coates and Cynthia Ann Coates - were financially and economically sound and the child would be extremely comfortable with them.

The committee was appointed following a suggestion by solicitor general and amicus curae Gopal Subramanium to the court in the course of the last hearing Aug 30.

It told the apex court bench of Justice Markandey Katju and Justice T.S. Thakur that the couple was fully aware of what the family was required to do for the upbringing of Anil.
It noted that Cynthia was suited for Anil's upbringing as her husband Craig is also a slow-learner by birth. Cynthia, who knew about Craig's slow-learning before marriage, took good care of him, the committee said.
