Girl adopted by Sunny Leone was turned down by 11 par­ents

Weekend Mirror - - EDITORIAL -

The

tod­dler adopted by ac­tor Sunny Leone last month had been turned down by 11 prospec­tive par­ents be­fore she could find a fam­ily, said adop­tion agency. While adop­tive par­ents are of­ten very picky about who they bring into their homes and have a lot to say about a child’s phys­i­cal ap­pear­ance, skin colour as well as med­i­cal his­tory, the tin­sel town diva and her hus­band Daniel We­ber were not in­ter­ested in any of it.

“With­out look­ing at colour, back­ground and health sta­tus, Sunny Leone hap­pily took the child in adop­tion. We re­spect that they didn’t try to bend the rules and stood in the queue like all the other par­ents,” Child Adop­tion Re­source Agency (CARA) Deepak Ku­mar said.

Leone ap­plied for adop­tion on the web por­tal of CARA, the apex body for adop­tion, on Septem­ber 30 last year and was re­ferred a child on June 21. Leone gave her as­sent the fol­low­ing day as par­ents are given 48 hours to ac­cept the child.

On com­plet­ing all the for­mal­i­ties the ac­tor was al­lowed to take the child from Latur in Ma­ha­rash­tra into pre-adop­tion fos­ter care and is now await­ing a court or­der which will de­clare the cou­ple the legal par­ents of the nearly two-year- old Nisha Kaur We­ber.
