â€˜Adoptionâ€™ is nothing but a feeling. According to me
adoption is a feeling of love towards someone whom you do not know. â€˜Adoptionâ€™
is just a name given to this feeling by the society.

adopt at the age of 20. When I became financially stable and could prepare my
self emotionally to adopt a child, I took my decision ahead.

All the family members, including my grandparents were very
happy with my decision to adopt a child. They were very supportive throughout
my adoption journey. Even my friends supported me a lot in my decision. My

Yes definitely, I would like to consider
adoption again. I wish, I could adopt all children, but it is not possible.
Adoption is a beautiful thing.
What would you like
to suggest to the parents who are considering adoption?
Adoption is a wonderful thing which an individual can do. So
if anyone is thinking of adopting a child, he or she should do it immediately.
When thought of adoption comes to mind, the person should immediately involve
himself in the process without giving a second thought.

like to give to adoptive parents?
I think every child is unique and all I want to tell
adoptive parents is that they should give lots of love to their children.
Parents should care for the child the way they want. There is no description
for love and care which parents can give their children.
What are the pain
points which you faced during your adoption journey?
There are lot of legalities
and formalities involved in the entire adoption
process. The most difficult phase which I faced as an adoptive parent is
the cross questioning from people. Lots of questions were asked
unnecessarily. Therefore, parents need
to prepare themselves mentally for their adoption journey.
