Six years ago I went to India to meet my future in-laws. I was nervous because I didn't know what Indians were like, even though I had dated one for three years. While there my the biggest realization was that Indians are like Americans. Mothers love their children. Fathers are proud of their children's accomplishments. Siblings enjoy seeing each other. Uncles and Aunts and delighted to be visited by nieces and nephews. Babies bring joy. Mom's cooking is the best, no matter how old you get or how far you've traveled. Getting your parents' approval for big decisions is important. I am blessed with an extended family in India that loves me and our children without regard for nationality or country of residence.
