Actress Swara Bhasker is all set to embrace motherhood as she recently revealed that she has registered herself as a prospective adoptive parent with the Central Adoption Resource Authority (CARA). Swara is now on the waiting list to adopt a child. In a recent interview, the actress revealed how she always wanted to have children and start a family of her own. She further added that she also spoke to many parents who have adopted their children to understand the said process.
Talking to Mid-Day about the same, the Prem Ratan Dhan Payo actress 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." Apart from this, Swara Bhasker also said that she has conveyed her desire to become a mother through adoption to her parents who are fully supportive of her decision.
The Nil Battey Sannata actress further added that she is now on the waiting list to adopt a child and that she is ecstatic about becoming a mother even though it takes a long time. Swara Bhasker added, "I am now a prospective adoptive parent on CARA. I know the waiting period is long, often as long as three years, but I can't wait to be a parent to a child through adoption."
