Quotes

...of Dieburg, 30km from Frankfurt in southern Germany, was adopted by a German couple when she was about 6 years old under suspicious circumstances. "I'd like to take legal action against the Nirmala Social Welfare Centre, Ullal, Selvam Raj Kennett of Kennett Hospital, Madurai and all other persons involved in my illegal adoption" she said
"This agreement creates opportunities for Gannon University students to interact with students or participate in distance learning that involves Gannon nursing faculty and faculty in India" Mauro said
" Very frustrated and I returned back to Germany. I always have my biological mother present in my heart. Again in the year 2005, me and my adoption mother came down to India and met Nirmala Sisters in Ullal/Mangalore requesting them again to give details regarding my biological mother and the adoption. But Sister Prathima said that all adoption documents are ruined, because of rain water leakage. She once again showed me only the Baptism Record Book. But I couldn't believe the Sister when she said all other documents were lost in water damage. At this point, I could sense that there was something fishy in my adoption."
