View Quote Saroo Brierley: I'm sorry you couldn't have your own kids.
Sue Brady: What are you saying?
Saroo Brierley: We... we... weren't blank pages, were we? Like your own would have been. You weren't just adopting us but our past as well. I feel like we're killing you.
Sue Brady: I could have had kids.
Saroo Brierley: What?
Sue Brady: We chose not to have kids. We wanted the two of you. That's what we wanted. We wanted the two of you in our lives. That's what we chose. [pause] That's one of the reasons I fell in love with your dad. [pause] Because we both felt as if... the world has enough people in it. Have a child, couldn't guarantee it will make anything better. But to take a child that's suffering like you boys were. Give you a chance in the world. That's something.
