Actor Nadia Jamil has been quite vocal about her struggles on social media, including troubles that come the adoption process in Pakistan. She is facing another issue with her daughter Nuri’s medical visa paperwork and is asking for help.
On Monday, she shared a photo with her captioned, “I love her. I miss her. Nadra, you didn’t make a single paper for her this time. I waited endlessly. Requesting whoever can help me get Nuri’s guardianship certificate, bay form and passport made and help me apply for a medical visa for her. No child should have to be away from her mother. Especially if she has a medical condition.”
The Damsa actor explained that she has to be in the UK for her sons’ schooling. Meanwhile, her daughter is with her paternal grandmother in Pakistan.
“It’s been over a year since I adopted her. And I’m still struggling with the paper work. She was meant to be assessed by eye doctors in the UK by this October. I’m am going to keep trying,” Jamil wrote, hoping they’d be reunited soon. “My baby is a champion, a warrior and a delicious munchkin. Like her Mama. Keep us both in your prayers. Please.”
She also shared a group photo with five of her foster sons and introduced them to her followers. She told them about where Sabir, Ali Rashid, Azaad, Talha and Ali Shakir came from, their earliest memories, their professions and their trauma. She talked about where they are now, how each one is unique in his own way and what they are aiming for professionally after completing their education.
“I will not risk these boys of mine being subjected to rejection and abandonment again. The one thing they [thirst] for in life is being important in someone’s life. A sense of significance. And they are so very important to me. Deeply so. They inspire me and teach me. They lean in to laughter and healing. They are strong warriors and nurturers,” she wrote.
Adding that no child should ever need to be as strong as they have had to be, she said it’s a shame we expect so much resilience from our kids. “They have more resilience than most adults I know. They should be playing and being given opportunities to enjoy learning, developing relationships and being loved. Instead, they fight hard to survive loneliness and past traumas. My foster sons are my pride and heart’s joy,” she concluded.
