I can’t believe the day was finally here! Today Ranigandha became officially Ahrana Zilpha, our daughter. As an act of claiming, I gave her a necklace similar to the one she was wearing when we picked her up. Shanti(her caretaker) had given her that necklace, and now Rani’s new necklace is my way of claiming her as mine! She was grinning from ear to ear and had even the usually somber judge grinning! It was glorious and we are so happy she is finally ours!
After the ceremony we went to our favorite Indian restaurant for a wonderful feast! It was absolutely fantastic and we are all on cloud nine today. :cloud9
