Following up on British couple Chris and Michele Newman request for Visa extension, Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj on September 14 tweeted that she is ready to extend it, so their baby Lily isn’t forced to live in an orphanage.
While she asked for their visa documents and details for the extension, she also asked them to make sure that Baby Lily’s passport is obtained and all formalities compleated.
On September 13 story of surrogate baby Lily’s story
