Sunita Williams to Adopt Gujarati Girl

Bangalore: Sunita Williams was shocked to come across incidents of sex selection  in Gujarat, when she made a visit to the state few years ago. “Why should you allow the society to limit you by the virtue of your sex? Limitations are only in your mind,” she had told a group of girls in the town of Kadi. Sunita will be visiting Gujarat once again after completing her space expedition as she has decided to adopt a girl from Ahmedabad. Her sister, Dina is going through the required formalities to adopt a girl child from an organization based in Ahmedabad.

“Like her sister, Sunita too has expressed her wish to adopt a child, preferably a girl. We will start the spadework soon. She will start formalities after she returns from the expedition,” says Dinesh Rawal, her cousin.

Deepak Pandya, Sunita’s father who hails from north Gujarat told Times of India that he and Sunita discusses about the shocking incidents of female foeticide quite often. “It is up to Sunita and her husband to take a final decision. But, she has often expressed her desire to adopt a girl from Gujarat,”

Williams is currently making final preparations for a July 14 launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, according to a NASA announcement.
