WACAP Reflections: A Thank You From June

Recently, we received a message from June, mother of 27-year-old Anjali, who was adopted through WACAP from India.

Twenty-seven years ago this month, Anjali waited in India for her family, and in the fall of 1985, June welcomed home “a most precious gift.” Over nearly 30 years, WACAP has helped more than 1,200 children from India come home to their families.

June, now age 67, shared with us a little about what that means to her.

“My daughter graduated from high school with a 4.0 GPA, received her Bachelor of Science in exercise science, and a master’s in orthotics and prosthetics. She is six months away from finishing her second and final year of residency. She makes and fits prosthetics and loves what she does. She has a very warm and loving heart and is a beautiful person both inside and out. Two of her best friends are also adoptees from India, and they are like surrogate children to me.

I have a son by birth who is now 39 years old. … When his sister came home, it was love at first sight. … I feel really blessed that they love each other so.

Anjali and her mom, June

I’ve meant to write this thank you for years. When I heard about your latest program in Bulgaria, I just had to write. What you do makes a difference.” 

Thank you June, for sharing about the gift of family, and our congrats to you, Anjali, as you complete your residency.




WACAP (World Association for Children and Parents) is one of the largest and most experienced international nonprofit adoption and child assistance agencies in the United States. Since 1976, we’ve placed over 10,000 children with loving adoptive parents and provided food, medical care and education to more than 200,000 children around the world.
