Last Day in Delhi

As I sit here in Svelte, our bags are packed, babies are bundled up and we are leaving for home in half an hour. I must admit, I'm having mixed emotions. Being here for the past month has been a roller coaster ride of emotions. I am a different person going home than I was when we landed here just over 3 weeks ago. There's no doubt about it, we've been blessed. Never in my wildest dreams could I have predicted how perfect things would turn out. Becoming a father to two beautiful children has been one of the most wonderful moments of my life. I'm excited to take them home and start our lives together. On the other hand, I'm also feeling reminiscent. India will forever maintain a special place in my heart as the birthplace of Aiden and Zara. I can't wait to one day bring them back here and show them this crazy, fascinating and intriguing land. I will never let them forget where they came from. The people I have met on this journey have been amazing. No one on earth, no matter how hard we try, will understand what we have gone through besides these people. I sincerely hope our bonds will be lifelong. I can't wait to take them to Australia to visit their "cousins." Mel and Andrew, you guys have made this journey special for me indeed. Gachy and Fernando, ahora tienen casa en Miami - mi casa, es su casa. Preet, you are definitely going to have to help me with Zara. You can be her pseudo "mom"! No, I will never forget this time or these people. Next stop, home!

  12. Hi guys,

    Looks like we are all going through the same emotions! We definately miss you all and we also miss the mall if you can believe it. I'm craving some pasteries from L'Opera!

    I fully expect Zara to visit me every year--so we can have our girl time! Hugs to all,
    Preet, Nev, Nevaan and Armaan xo
