Regarding adoptions from this foreign country:
Bangladeshi law does not allow for full adoptions of Bangladeshi children. Americans considering adoption of Bangladeshi children must obtain guardianship from a Bangladeshi court and subsequently adopt the child in the United States. In addition, only citizens of Bangladesh may be appointed/declared guardians of a Bangladeshi child. Since Bangladesh allows for dual citizenship, however, American citizens who are also Bangladeshi citizens may be appointed guardians of Bangladeshi children. Prospective adoptive parents are advised to fully research any of the adoption agencies or facilitators they plan to use for adoption services.
