    Sushmita wrote, "Renee was born from my heart when I was just 24 years old. It was a big decision!! Many questioned it. Why adoption? How will you raise a child without being married? Are you ready to be a single parent? You realise the impact this decision will have on your professional & personal life? The questioning & opinions were endless..."

    She continued, "And yet, I did what felt right in my heart. I knew I was ready to be a mother. And it turned out to be the best decision I ever made, one so profound...I made it twice!! Now I am blessed with two beautiful daughters: Renee and Alisah."

    Sushmita signed off her post by writing, "I am who I am because I found the courage to follow my heart...seeking the right guidance, information & support that was needed when I needed it. I know these biases haven't really stopped. But they shouldn't stop you. This is a reminder to talk about them. Find YOUR answer. #SearchForChange #beAuthentic #BeyondConditioning #BeyondBias. I LOVE YOU GUYS!!! #duggadugga."
