19 years after adoption, adoptee is reunited with the family.

In today’s Hindu paper there is an article that presented a story of an adult adoptee who was adopted from Ashraya in Bangalore 18 years ago came back to reunite with her family. Her name is Minda Cox. When she was born to a couple in India (in Karnataka), her parents knew then that they wouldn’t be able to care for her so they gave her up for adoption. Soon after she was transferred to Ashraya, an adoptive family was found in the United States of America.

Story is very inspirational. I couldn’t find an electronic version of the story but when I did Google search, I found a neat presentation of her. This is a must see presentation and If you like to see it, [Click here].
