From our hearts to yours ...
We don't know your journey, but we can imagine it has involved some incredibly difficult decisions. We want to thank you - for considering adoption as well as considering us to be the parents of your beautiful child. We have an expansive, loving family and group of friends who are so excited to welcome a child, and we want you to know that we are grateful that you are taking the time to get to know us.
We met as freshmen in college, over twenty years ago. We became good friends on a trip to Russia, and we started dating 18 years ago. We knew pretty early on that we were meant to be together. We have similar backgrounds and compliment each other's' strengths in many ways. After six years (and many not-so-subtle hints from our families), we made it official. Turns out, marrying your best friend makes life so much better! We have had our challenges - a long, painful struggle with infertility, balancing two careers, several very serious family illnesses - but throughout it all we have put each other above all and it has made us a stronger couple. We have had so many wonderful adventures together as well - traveling around the world, making new friends, exploring different hobbies, moving to a new state. Two years ago we started a new adventure - parenting. Adopting and raising our daughter has been one of the most joyous, rewarding experiences we've had as a couple. But we know that our family is not yet complete.
We are both physicians in private practice. Rajat is a gastroenterologist; he has a bustling practice and is someone his colleagues depend on for his knowledge and technical expertise. He is part of a large, very supportive group. Monjri is a gynecologic oncologist. She loves her job and her patients, even though there are difficult moments. We both have demanding careers, but being in private practice gives us more control of our time. We know that things will become much busier once another child comes into our lives, but we have the flexibility to adjust our schedules. We also have amazingly supportive family and friends. Both of our sets of parents are eager to get to know a new grandchild and pamper him or her, as only grandparents can do. We have a wonderful nanny who helps us while we are at work. She is very excited about our decision to adopt again, and is looking forward to cuddling a new baby!
We know that this is a huge life decision for you, and one that you may think about often. We will make sure that your child always knows the selflessness and courage it took for you to consider adoption. We will keep a scrapbook of our journey to show the child her or his story early and often. We want you to know that you were right to put your faith in us to raise your child. We will make sure to send you photos, letters and emails so that you can see the child blossom.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for considering us to be your child's parents. A child is life's most precious gift; we know that we will love your child and encircle her or him with an expansive, loving network of family and friends. We very much look forward to getting to know you, and for you to get to know us better.
