Reshma / Wild about Kevin and Rubina. Eater of everything. Encourager. International Adoptee. Terribly human. Novice cook and designer. Plant killer. Finder of purpose and passion in everything.
I was abandoned in Calcutta, India at birth and adopted to the US at 3 months old. I grew up in a beautifully, close knit family. Recently, I returned to Calcutta for the first time in 35 years as the subject of a documentary; Calcutta is My Mother is expected to premier in 2017. By sharing my story, I hope to shed some light on the heart of adoptees. Writing has always been a love of mine and even if this is written between just you and I, I will write. There are many aspects of my life and I hope to provide an authentic glimpse into each corner here. You will not find perfection in my story, but rather a continuous strive for growth and betterment.

Kevin / Lover of Resh, Ruby, and potatoes. Devout St. Louis Cardinals and Oregon Ducks fan. Forgiving, impatient, and hard working. Beer enthusiast. Creative and witty beyond words.

Kevin and I have been married for more than 11 years. I’m wildly attracted to him; always have been. He is the most hilarious person I’ve ever known. He hates being late. Kevin is one of those annoying people who manage to be good at everything. This guy works harder than anyone and would do anything for his family. He is a good, good man. And he’s mine. And I couldn’t be happier about it.

Rubina / GOLD obsessed. Affectionate, imaginative, entertaining. SO funny due to the same sharp wit as her daddy. Wide eyed; physically and intellectually. Full of joy.

Rubina Tyler arrived 2 full months prior to her due date and has been hustling each day since. Ruby is full of life and love. She is fearless and curious and brave. This little one is sharp as a whip and profoundly inquisitive. Compassion and sensitivity run deep within her. She is the most fascinating little creature I’ve ever known. You’ll see…
