Saira Khan’s adopted daughter, Amara turned 10 on Sunday, 7 March. To celebrate the milestone, the former Loose Women panellist posted a touching photo of the moment the pair met one decade ago.
Saira adopted Amara when she was just four days old back in March 2011. “10 years ago I travelled to the Edhi Orphanage in Karachi Pakistan to adopt a little girl,” she explained to her Instagram followers.
“If you ask. The Universe delivers. I believe in the stars, fate, and destiny. This photo is proof of all that,” Saira wrote beneath a birthday snap of Amara and the family pooch. “Against all the odds I can say today, Happy 10th Birthday my beautiful daughter Amara. You were my rainbow wish”

Saira added: “Wishes come true if you really believe in them and help to make them happen.”
The proud mum-of-two already had her one year old son Zac when she and husband Steve Hyde decided to adopt. Saira and Steve conceived Zac through IVF, but it failed when they tried for a second baby.
Remembering the day she adopted Amara, Saira wrote: “This is the moment I met my daughter. Electricity ran through my body and fused us together. As soon as our eyes met and locked I knew I wanted to love and care for her everyday of my life.”
Saira went on to explain that she and Steve chose Amara’s name because it meant “immortal and peaceful.”

“Happy Birthday beautiful Amara. You are more than we ever imagined. Thank you for bringing us so much joy everyday,” Saira declared to her 94.5,000 Instagram followers.
Saira affectionately called Amara her “ little miracle,” claiming that she “was destined for [her]” and is “growing up to everything and more [Saira] would want in a daughter.”
