Can a child born in a foreign country get a US birth certificate?

A kid born in another country and adopted by a U.S. citizen will not be issued a birth certificate in the United States. It will have been issued by the nation in where you were born.

In addition to being given a passport, most children are given a health card when they arrive in the United States. This card should be taken with you when you travel outside of the United States or Canada because customs officials may ask to see it. The health card contains information about your adoption and can be found under "Adoption Information" on page 3.

The majority of these agencies are based in China but there are also agencies based in Russia, India, South Korea, and many other countries.
