Namaste. A common greeting in Nepal made by putting both hands together at your heart and meaning; my soul greets your soul. I adopted my boy, Pukar, on October 1, 2010. We were stranded in Nepal until the US (USCIS, DOS) granted him a visa. On 1-11-11, with our Visa in hand, we finally flew home to the USA. Thank you to everyone who lent us a helping hand on this phenomenal, and difficult journey. NOW IT'S TIME TO TURN MY ATTENTION BACK TO THOSE WHO WERE LEFT BEHIND.
