A story of twin girls............

Seeta and Geeta became Juhi and Mahi.......
Seeta and Geeta became Juhi and Mahi.......

Becoming a mother has been one of the most beautiful moments of my life. Thanks to the amazing initiative called CSA and the team they have put together on March 20th 2013 I became the “Amma” of 2 beautiful girls (twins)  – Juhi and Maahi. As I watch them playing happily surrounded by family and friends – I am amazed at their journey and mine.


In January 2012 when I announced my intention to adopt a girl child – my decision was met with a lot of skepticism. As a prospective single parent I met with my share of discouragement from social workers and adoption agencies. After a year of struggling to make sense of the adoption process a well wisher finally connected me to CSA. From that point onwards DadasahebSargar and Lucy Mathew of CSA have been my guiding angels. It was not just that they connected me to the right agency in MP – it was that they guided me thro every step of the process and did so with empathy. Thanks to them the process of finding and bringing home my daughters have been more pleasure than pain.


The twins are a happy bunch – they are loved and adored by the extended family. They are attending summer school and loving every bit of it. The three of us are in the exciting phase of exploring new places, new tastes, new games and each other.  It’s just been a month since they walked into my home and heart but it feels as if they have always been here an integral part of our lives.
