Raha, in its purest form means divine path
in Swahili she is Joy,
In Sanskrit, Raha is a clan,
In Bangla – rest, comfort, relief,
in Arabic peace,
it also means happiness, freedom & bliss.
And true to her name, from the first moment we held her – we felt it ALL!
Thank you Raha, for bringing our family to life, it feels as though our lives have only just begun.”
