The Sejm’s Commission of Social Politics and Family introduced a project of the law that pioneers a new type of adoption to the Polish law called “recommended adoption”. Generally speaking, the adoption in question allows the parents to point out the adopters. The parents’ choice is, without prejudice to the other provisions, binding for the court. The paper’s aim is to analyze the new legal institution in terms of theology and law of the Roman Catholic Church and the Evangelical Church of the Augsburg Confession in Poland. The conclusion is that the proposed law is coherent with the teaching and legal discipline of the Churches. But there is still space for de lege ferenda postulate, that the bill’s list of candidates for the adopters should be extended to include the sponsors. The sponsors seem to be very suitable candidates for adopters. First, because the parents themselves pointed out the sponsors, and secondly, because both the Catholic and the Lutheran legal regulations demand a lot from sponsors with the result that they already are well evaluated and carefully selected persons.
