Girl Chat with Kriti

Girl Chat with Kriti

Caring for others is her passion!

Kriti has such a servant's heart and we love having her as a part of our family.  She's studying to receive her nursing degree so that she can pair her caring spirit with her profession.  When girls in the house were sick she'd help care for them and comfort them.  And beyond that she loves to care for others through cooking!  She likes to learn how to cook and to make treats and snacks for the younger girls in our family.  She particularly loves Chicken Tandoori.  If you haven't tried it - it has roasted chicken, yogurt and spices cooked in a clay pot - many Indian restaurants in the US will have this dish if you want to try it. 

Kriti loves school and is doing exceptionally well.  Her dedication to school shows - when asked what she liked best about her school she told us, "I like how disciplined it is!"  But even amidst her dedication Kriti is excited to get back home for Christmas to be with her sisters soon.

“My favorite holiday is Christmas - we all get to be together as a family, the college girls and the young girls, plus we get new dresses!”

Each year we celebrate Christmas as a family and have a joyful time together.  We sing songs, play games, we open a few gifts.  It's always amazing for us to see our whole family come together, everyone with different personalities and gifting to form our one-and-only As Our Own family.  We are truly blessed!

Fun Fact: Kriti's favorite sport is American Football!  Who knew!?!


We are so proud to call Kriti our own!  Even if she does like American football better than cricket!
