I liked the MC's voice in this story.

Love the voice, and the premise. That last line is perfect, and the message so important.
I remember despising my name, until I learned how it must sound rolling off God's tongue, and its meaning.
I loved India's attitude shift when her heart began to swell for the country which bore the same name.
Nice way to tie it all up. Very accurate about the orphans. I never found one not smiling. We think they have so little, but they know without the orphanage, they'd have even less. Good job.
You have a wonderful story here. I love how you showed the change in the mc's attitude.
Loved the honesty. You took us on the journey with you. It was a great angle and not the same ol' same ol' orphanage story.

Nice twist on the topic...I loved the hook and the ending, too. Congrats on your EC!
