The number of children adopted in Tehran Province increased by 34% last year that ended on March 20, compared to the previous year, said Ahmad Meydari, deputy minister of  Cooperatives, Labor and Welfare on Thursday. “Since the new law on adoption was approved in 2015 to facilitate the growth and development of abandoned children or orphans in a family environment, the adoption rate has increased considerably,” IRNA quoted him as saying.
