Natasha was a chirpy girl who grew into an ambitious woman. Her childhood dream was to be scientist. She knew she would need to study a lot to pursue her dream and she excelled in her studies. Even when her relatives were making remarks about her moving out of her hometown for study. Her parents stood like a rock with her. That was the first bridge crossed!
As the college progressed, came the proposal from her friend, Ananth. They were both in love and were living in a happy world where everything was colorful. They knew there might be resistance from families, but together they were a team. Many people questioned them as they were opposite poles and wondered how they will survive together. But she believed they will cross that bridge too when the time came! And, eventually families agreed and they got married. 🙂
The judgement from others is never ending and hence came the questions on getting pregnant. Natasha and Ananth were both focused on completing their PhD and work in field of microbiology. They had promised each other for unconditional support and braved all the remarks from the nosy relatives. After all, that is what the love is all about. Together they could cross all hurdles and negativity in life.
Years down the lane and after multiple failed IVF treatments, they were disheartened. But all hope was not lost. Ananth and Natasha knew that they were ready to be parents and thus started the process of adoption. Registering into CARA and going through all the home studies was not easy. Natasha would often wonder what would happen if their adoption application was not approved. And, she found solace in the thought, ‘We will cross the bridge when it comes to it’.
Fortunately, the day soon came when they welcomed Aisha in their home and hearts. They knew all bridges have been crossed and they were ready for a lifetime of happiness! 🙂
