The Not So Fine Side of China

Obese people looking to adopt children from China need to either head to the gym or look no more because Chinese officials won't allow it. New restrictions ban obese couples with a Body Mass Index of more than 40 (per person) from adopting Chinese children.


Interestingly enough, the United States is the No. 1 destination for children adopted abroad and the United States is also one of the most overweight countries. Ironic, isn't it?

Factors, other than being obese, that will prohibit you from adopting a child from China: Being over 50, being unmarried, having psychiatric conditions and having a severe facial deformity.
