Answer
The adoption of children is a serious issue. We are talking about human beings. As far as his/her intentions may be motivated by generosity, humanity, sensitivity, I think that every citizen wishing to adopt a child must follow the procedures about domestic and international adoption that each State sets through the appropriate laws. Violating these laws is a serious and punishable fact.
There are so many indirect and "legal" ways to help children in a state of neglect: donate money, perform volunteer service at childcare facilities as a foundling hospital, engage in humanitarian organizations that are fighting to defeat child poverty, and much more again.
For example: commit to build, together with others that like her/his are sensitive to the problem, shelters (does not take much: a booth, a tent, etc.) to give a first aid (food, cots, clothes, etc.). Especially do an awareness campaign in villages and small towns to raise awareness and mobilize people to offer what they can.
