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.
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.
