They already provide their family album, pictures of the members, room of Krupali to help the girl to know her family. I wish her a beautiful life ahead,” said Agarwal.
The couple decide not to change the name of the girl and she will be identified with her Indian name in Italy. The decision touched everyone at the centre and they thanked the collector and the officials for speeding the process of adoption.
