Sushmita herself has always been vocal about adoptions. She recently attended an event in Hyderabad where she spoke about adopting her girls and shared her thoughts on the same. She said, “In the natural birth, the mother and the child connect through the umbilical cord but in adoption, the mother and the child are connected by this higher power, a connection that you cannot cut off. I have had the privilege of experiencing it twice. To become a mother who has given birth from the heart. I have not missed a day of feeling the joy of motherhood.”
