In this material we will highlight the distinct adoption elements of the world's states, such as the US, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, France. In order to really know the evolution of our adoption system, it is necessary to compare us with other states to see the differences and similarities between them. The favor for adoption is the favor for the child and for the adopter. The importance for adoption is the importance for the children and for adopter. Therefore, the best interest of the child must be the most important thing in the institution of adoption. The national laws of the world's states have different mechanisms for implementing the adoption procedure. These differences are given by family traditions, culture, habits, religious concepts, social and political context, and last but not least their history. There are states that do not admit adoption with a adopter of race, religion different from that of the child. With the development of the adoption system, borders have been opened, adopting between races, international adoptions or same-sex adoptions.
