Swara Bhasker on the waiting list to adopt a child, says 'can’t wait to be a parent to a child through adoption'


Swara Bhasker has expressed her desire to have a family of her own. The actress, who is currently on the waiting list to adopt a child, talked about how there are lakhs of children in orphanages who need a home. She not only read up about adoption but also met several couples who adopted children. The actress signed up as a prospective adoptive parent with the Central Adoption Resource Authority (CARA) in Delhi. 

Speaking to a leading daily about the same, Swara said, “I’ve always wanted a family and children. I realised that adoption was a way to marry these things. Luckily in India, the State allows single women to adopt. I met many couples who have adopted children, met some children who were adopted and are now almost adults. I read up on the process and experience.”
