Sharmeela Shah, India Program Director

I have a Bachelors in psychology and Masters in social work from Tata Institute of Social Sciences, India and Columbia University, New York.


My real education has come from learning with and from the families I have supported during my fifteen years of India adoptions. Over a hundred children have come home and found their way to where they were always meant to be and many more wait their turn. It is such a privilege to play a part in a family’s adoption journey and so rewarding to be able to find a home and family for an orphaned child.


To all my current families that have placed their trust in my expertise, remember that the best things in life are worth waiting for. Something beautiful is on the horizon.
