Lost my password

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tamra @ 11:02 am

So sorry it’s been so long since I have written. My hard drive crashed and I lost all my passwords. This one was hard to remember. I finally figured it out!

Updates on Rani
*Her gymnastic teacher moved so she isn’t currently taking gymnastics
*She has begun early reading lessons
*She is talking about India a lot and asking if we can paint her feet red…not so sure about this one. I have the paint but I don’t know how to do it.
*She is very happy and has forgotten almost everything about her life before Christmas last year. This is bittersweet for me, while I’m happy she doesn’t remember the pain of leaving, I’m sad she doesn’t remember India very well.

I’ll have more updates and pictures soon!

    Hi! My name is Josefin and I am a 32 year old girl born in India and adopted by Swedish parents at the age of about 5 weeks. I am married to a Swede and had my first biological child in august last year. His name is Isak. I went back to India in 2002 for the first time since being adopted and spent 6 months there. I stayed at Basudhara for about months to study the Indian and Swedish adoption procedures and actually met Ranighanda. She was adorable then and she still is. Since then I have been back to visit Basundhara several times. I wondered what happended to Ranighanda, found your website and have been “following” her since you adopted her. I am very glad to see that she is thriving and has found her place in your loving family. It makes me so happy.

    Now, the red paint she is talking about is Orota (don’t know about the spelling). You mix red paint with water and you paint a very thick line around the foot. As if you were depicting a hand or a foot on a piece of paper but forget about the paper and stay to the foot. Around the whole foot which puts it in some sort of frame. It doesn’t look particularly nice estetically (according to me) but it’s an Orian tradition and that makes it beautiful.

    It is so excited to read about your adventures. Keep it up and let us know how you are doing. Adopting a girl from Rwanda seems like a great adventure and I wish you the best of luck. Let us know how it goes.
    Kind regards
