Beauty from Ashes

From best friends and crib-mates to sisters. My girls lost everything. They lost their families when they were brought in to the orphanage. They lost their friends, caregivers, language, and culture when we brought them here. Though they now have the medial care they needed, a family that loves them fiercely and advocates for them, more than enough food, new friends, a good education, etc...., we can’t take away the loss or trauma they experienced. Adoption can have gain, but it’s deeply routed in loss. I’m thankful that they will always have each other.

(For those of you wondering, Deena was in Ramya's third orphanage.  They were best friends for the almost year that Ramya was there before coming home.  I met Deena on my trip to bring Ramya home.  Shortly after my return, we decided to try and adopt Deena.  The process took about 2 1/2 (very long) years.)
