Here's How Actress Nadia Jamil Changed The Lives Of These Street Children When She Adopted Them

By Alveena Jadoon | 26 Feb, 2018

Adoption is often not considered an option by many Pakistani parents. The reason is the stigma attached to the concept of adoption.

 

A country where women are beaten, divorced and even killed for not producing the desired offspring; adoption is never really considered as an option for parents.

Couples that do adopt are often marginalized because the inability to produce is seen as a question upon their manhood and femininity.

Men often resort to second marriages in cases where a woman is incapable of producing offsprings or is having daughters one after the other. Women on the other hand, if find themselves in a situation where the husband is impotent, have to stay within the marriage.

 

However a country whose population size is increasing rapidly, many children are left abandoned.

The reasons wary; it can be due to a divorce, lack of funds to raise them, unwanted female child, or the sudden death of parents.

In such cases, people need to understand the importance of adoption. Especially in cases where they are able to raise a child and provide him/her a better environment.

Many abandoned children, if they don’t end up in Edhi homes, resort to finding means of income and end up being exposed to the harsh realities of life at a very young age. This should not be the life of any child because they deserve the retention of their innocence and to save them from indulging in crimes.
