Adopting a child is one of the most rewarding, satisfying life experiences a person can have. It is an unconditional commitment of love both ways. This memoir depicts Raj Arneja's story of becoming a mother, the journey that took her 7,000 miles from her home on the west coast of Canada all the way to India in the 1990s to adopt her now fully-grown children. This is not a how-to book on adoption; it is a celebration of motherhood through adoption. Love at First Sight has the potential to change your perspective on adoption or even inspire you to adopt. For Raj Arneja, her children are her own, as if they were of her own flesh and blood. This is the story of how she found them.
