congratulations on motherhood and a well-written article. hope to get many more such articles from you with your experiences. by the way, i also adopted a baby girl and i went through all the emotions you had..from infertility treatments to holding our daughter in our arms...i understood every word that you had wriiten from my heart!!! we also had a huge celebration and it was overwhelming to get a lot of goodwill. now, everyone from my parents' street in india wants to know about the baby's progress and everything. take care, enjoy motherhood and keep writing....all the best to you...

hi friend, congratulations for a new life in yr life, i felt so good after reading yr article, actually i m at the midle stage of poking, and now kind of getting irritated by all that, lets hope i get a baby soon or else will surely go for an adoption.

yes - she knows about it and has been wondeful about it - and it does make for another article. will do so!

part 2 was equally interesting..my question is does the girl know that she's adopted and how did she handle it? that would have been an useful experience for the readers. i ask this as an adoptive mother myself. i hear some have taken it very well and there are few that seem to get upset. your experience in this would be very helpful. very positive and upbeat article otherwise..

it is heartening to read this article. she is lucky that she managed to fulfil her dream of adoption. my dream of adopting a girl child (i have a bilogical son who is six and a half years old) reamins a dream. i have tried getting in touch with many agencies but to no avail.

hi,it was wonderful reading about your journey;i've started a similar journey two and half years ago and often wonder in nights like tonight 'how would she take it'; she is a bubbly 3 year old now and we are about to bring home a baby brother for her. though i am confident i'd be able to deal with the task, sometimes it terrifies me. i just hope my babies would grow up to be happy and content individuals; i must thank my wonderful family evryone of which has boosted my confidence.

congratulations and bless you and your family. we've adopted 2 girls from india (my husband and his family is from india). our oldest is now 4.5 and we recently brought home our second daughter who is 1.5. parenting, adopted or not, and family is a lifelong journey (or rollercoaster ride). i experience motherhood as a science project....enjoying it everyday. thanks for sharing, providing perspective, and good luck

purnima, i could never finish these articles witout a smile on my face and tears in my eyes. i have gone through the very same experiences as you and then decided adoption. sometimes i feel that the attachment that i have with my 18 yr old son is so fierce-would i have it if i has given birth. my siblings and cousins as well as inlaws tell me not to be overprotective and let ho , but i jsut can't do it. i have sacrificed so much for him that i can't loose my son now ! if i send him overseas to study i sometimes feel i will just go along as the bond is so fierce that i cannot break it !. the strength of love that adoption brings , probablly no other form of love will bring !

i was touched and am slowly telling my 5 yr daughter that she is adopted by telling her stories where little children come in dream and how mother goes to find that child but at this age also they here carefully weighing each word like why such dreams come etc so it has to be dealt with honesty but gently may god giv us the wisdom and guide us so that our lovely kids do not feel hurt

dear purnima, congratulation & thanks a lot as i have just started having those experiences which you had gone through 15 years back, we have just brought her home,today she has completed one month staying with us, she is now 6 months old, the same way i also trying to learn which cry means she is craving for luv & hug & which one means she is feeling sleepy, its really a journey for which i was eagerly waiting fopr, without this my life was incomplete. thanks once again, i thought i will be telling her when she will be 3-4 years old but after going through your writeup thinking 6 may be the right time. wish you happiness & may god fulfeel all her ( malavika's) wishes.
