‘Adoption is a wonderful way to have a child’: Nadia Jamil says the process was tougher than biological birthing
There is no pre-requisite for family — anyone you choose to love is your family and Nadia Jamil is proving just that. The actor spoke of her personal experience with adoption and how it was more tough to be accepted as an adoptive parent than choosing to birth a child.
On Thursday, she shared photos of her daughter Nuri in her arms and wrote, “Adoption is a wonderful way to have a child. I found it a tougher “labour” process to go through than biological birthing. Nerve wracking assessments [and] waiting! Imagine if biological parents were interviewed [and] checked for maturity, parenting skills, financial security and dedication the same way!”
Her post was welcomed with a wave of love. When someone said Nuri was lucky to have her as a mother, Jamil responded that it’s her who’s privileged to have her as a daughter.
Many congratulated her on her little bundle of joy.
When a Twitter user pointed out that adopted children are not eligible for inheritance, the actor said, “Who needs an inheritance when she can be gifted everything in my lifetime?”
“All children are a blessing,” said another netizen, adding that there is more than one way to have a child.
Another user talked about how family isn’t made from blood, it’s made from love.
Congratulations to Jamil and Nuri on finding their family!
