Dear Expectant Parent,
We are Reema and Gobind. We thank you for considering us as adoptive parents. We want you to know we are here for you and the respect we have for you is immeasurable. We are so excited to be adopting and bringing a child into our family! We hope our story will help you make your choice. Please know that no matter what direction you go in, we wish you and your child all the best. We will do everything we can to help your child be the best person they can be.
Who we are:
We have been together for more than 12 years and are truly best friends. We initially lived in Northern Virginia which is where our immediate family resides and then lived in New York City where we got engaged and then later married in our hometown. After 5 amazing years in the big apple, we decided to move to San Diego, California and simultaneously, travel the world! We’ve been to over 40 countries and cannot wait to share this passion with our child when the time is right. Traveling has made us realize that there is so much out there in the world and different ways to grow a family. Adoption has been important to us as the primary method to expand our family and we are absolutely honored to be on this journey with you.
In our free time, we love to be outdoors, whether it is in our backyard which has a pool and barbeque area or going to the beaches which are 10 to 15 minutes away. We’re passionate about trying out new recipes or going out to different restaurants – Gobind loves ice cream and Reema can’t get enough pizza!
We are very fortunate to have our families along with us on this journey – we celebrate holidays and important milestones together and make sure to visit each other as much as possible. Our parents will give us a hand raising the child we adopt and they are all just as excited as we are. Together we hope to pass on important values of family, community, and respect to our children.
We both love to experience new things together and encourage each other to take on personal challenges at home or in the workplace. We both work from home in the technology industry, and are professionally driven to keep learning but have been able to maintain very flexible schedules. We will definitely take time off together when we welcome our child into our family and be sure to have the right set up that is most optimal for our child.
We have always dreamt about being parents and having a child to raise in a loving home! We recognize the enormous sacrifice and resilience it takes for you to make this decision. We are incredibly grateful for your heart and willingness to be open to bring us on this journey with you.
We know that this is not an easy decision and want you to know that we will work with you every step of the way. While we cannot fully understand what you are going through, we promise to provide your child unconditional love, experiences, and an amazing family. We hope to be on this journey with you and your child will always know your love for them and at the same time, we will respect the boundaries you would like to set. Thank you for your beautiful heart, strength and the time you have taken to get to know us.
