Dear Friend,

Your desire is appropriate since your only daughter is under custody and care of her mother. It is a challenge to the courts in India. File an application under section 151 of Civil Procedure Code seeking permission for adoption of a child. Normally the Lower Courts may reject it but the Higher Court on appeal may certainly allow such prayer.
