Varsha Hope

This girl is something else.  She loves her daddy.  She likes me too.  Gives me hugs.  She likes to be carried.  Boy is she heavy.  Good thing Ananya and Prasun have been keeping us in shape.  Its also nice to have a child who actively holds onto you when you pick her up.  Not something we are used to.  Her orphanage is very nice.  Some adorable babies (including the bigger kids).  If anyone is interested in a 9 year old boy with CP let me know.  He would do fabulous in a family in the US.  I'm sure he could be up and moving in no time.  He is very smart too.  We can't smuggle him out.  He's a bit big to fit in my purse.
I'll update more tonight.  We are visiting again today.  Hoping for some more pictures of Varsha.  She likes to refuse to look at the camera.

I am so happy for you, for her, for your family. She is just beautiful! Enjoy your time in India - had the most wonderful dream about being back there two nights ago. Glad to live vicariously through you for a few days ;)

I am just thrilled that this trip is going so smoothly and that Varsha appears to be so receptive to her new family....especially daddy.

All the best.

I am so happy to see that Varsha is now with a family!!!She waited so long. I remember seeing her listed on Reeces Rainbow in 2007 when we found Sneha. God answers prayers. Can't wait to see more pictures!!!
