Kiran, who was a student at Food for Life Vrindavan was adopted by a Spanish Couple when she was 7. Years later, she visited her birth place and shared her experience with us: “As soon as I arrived at the New Delhi airport, I was anxious if anyone at Food for Life would recognise me, how things would go, and if everything would be the same as before.
