Gopi & Saritha
Thank you for taking the time to get to know our family. We thank you and admire you for considering adoption and would embrace the chance to walk through this journey with you. We would be eternally grateful to you for this courageous decision and considering us. We are so excited to become parents. We have so much love and laughter to share that we know we will make excellent parents.
Our Leisure Time
We live in a very pleasant neighborhood with nice view of a large pond in the backyard. This pond is surrounded by other houses too, giving a sense of safety. During summer, we like to sit on the deck in the swing and listen to the birds chirping, later in the evening the frogs and other critters join the orchestra!
We have a fenced garden in the backyard in which we plant vegetables and herbs during summer. We spend our evenings and weekends tending this garden. We also have lots of flower plants in the front and we tend them regularly.
Both of us go bicycling to the neighboring park and around the blocks, taking different routes each and explore the area. Our GPS tracking on the map usually looks like noodles! During long weekends we usually travel out. We do visit India quite often.
In summer, we also go camping with friends. Most of our friends have children and often our camping destinations are places where children have a lot of activity to do. Later in winter we plan holidays in vacation homes and have fun with the winter activities. We invite our friends over to barbecue, lunches and dinners often and keep a room in our home specially for the children to play and have fun. The kids love coming to our house and play.
Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
Gopi About Saritha: Saritha is a very caring and loving person. She has a very kind heart and always jumps in to help family, friends and others when needed. She loves and adores me a lot and is always very affectionate. She likes to have many friends and all her friends love her company. She likes playing with the kids a lot and whenever friends' kids come home, she makes sure that they are taken good care and dishes up some of the very exotic and yummy treats, especially for the children. Her culinary skills are talk of the town and she is a specialist in a number of Indian dishes.
Saritha About Gopi: I never believed in the expression, "Love at first sight," until I met Gopi. The very first day I met I was bowled over by his shy and modest behavior and his utmost respect in treating me as a lady. I am absolutely and madly in love with him. He is a wonderful and loving person. He is very sensitive to all my needs and tries to fulfill all my wishes. One of the best surprises he gave me was on the Valentine Day in 2017 when bought me a car! He knew red was my favorite color and kept it as a surprise and I danced with joy when I saw the beautiful red machine on the doorstep. Apart from all this, he has been a pillar of strength to me when we found out we could not biologically have children. He was with me assuring me that we will find alternate methods to have a child. He respects my parents and ensures that we speak to them almost every day. When I went to his office during an event, I realized the respect and admiration he commands amongst his colleagues, which made me so proud of him.
How We Met
We were first introduced to each other by a mutual friend in March 2016. We met in Houston, Saritha being there and Gopi in Milwaukee. We went on a evening date to an Italian restaurant in Sugarland, Texas. The next day we drove down to San Antonio for a full day date! We had fun walking along the river and we also took a river boat tour.
We exchanged notes and were talking and texting each other after that. We got to know each other's interests, hobbies, friends, work, family background, favorite foods and movies ...
We got married within a month and half of knowing each other. Our wedding was held in the traditional Indian way and we had lots of relatives from the U.S. and India. It was a fun filled affair with over 60 guests at the Hindu temple in Milwaukee.
We planned our honeymoon at the Kaui Island in Hawaii. We had a fabulous time over there enjoying the nature, the food, and went on some adventure trips like zip lining and a helicopter ride. We also drove around island along the coast line and drove up the mountains in inner island. We had a very memorable trip. It is now 3+ years and we still feel we got married very recently. Time goes by fast!
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a very active and multicultural community. Some of us meet regularly for dinners and cookouts. Our neighborhood has many families with little kids. Ours is a very safe neighborhood, and we have lots of kids cycling, walking with parents, practicing basketball in the hoops in the driveway and also playing in the backyards.
We have a very beautiful house that was built in 2003. We have 4 spacious bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms and an elegantly finished basement that plenty of space for the kids to play. We also have a nice backyard and our immediate neighbors have kids who love playing in their backyard as well as in ours.
We also have a public park just a mile away where there are tennis courts, basketball hoops, volleyball courts and picnics spots. There are also couple of other state parks within few miles from our house where we have our extended community events like 5K funding raising and picnic events.
Our Extended Families
We both have well settled and supportive siblings who themselves have a loving family with kids. We call them almost daily through video chats, share funny jokes, videos and photos through the messaging apps. We love the way our nephews call us aunt and uncle.
When we go to India we make sure to visit relatives and friends. We also make sure to go to some tourist places with our family and have fun.
We have several friends here in Wisconsin. We regularly meet for traditional holiday celebrations as a big family potlucks. We also rotate among some of close friends to have small dinner get togethers and have their kids meet and play together. We also have several traditional festivals that we attend and make new friends in the process. Every year we go for family camping or vacation homes along with friends.
Both sides of our family are very supportive in our plans to adopt a child. We are so excited to be on this journey towards completing our family through adoption. We know that adoption is a gift and we promise to provide unconditional love, care and support to the child.
From Us to You
Thank you for taking the time to read our profile, learn more about us and considering us to raise your child. We promise to take care of your child with all the love and affection. We want to assure you that we have come to the decision to adopt with much prayer, deep desire to become parents, and lots of love in our hearts to share with the child. We will ensure that child gets good care, great education and grows up to be a successful professional. We will guide the child in learning good morals, ethics and good behavior and grow up a mature adult who will provide great love and affection to people the child grows with or gets to know along the way and more importantly towards the birth mother or parents.
From the day we met, we talked about having children and starting a family. However after trying naturally, and then several IVFs during the last 3 years, we were unable to have children. We then had a very emotional discussion among ourselves, whether to continue IVF treatments and other options. We decided that the best is to adopt a baby and provide the same kind of love and affection that we had planned for our kids. We have a very close knit family who support us a lot in this process and are excitedly waiting for us to have the baby soon. Both of us have siblings who are married and have kids and are also eagerly waiting for us to have a child soon. We are overjoyed to realize our dream of becoming a potential adoptive family for your child.
Gopi's strengths are his immense sense of responsibility towards the family. Even after a tired day at the work, he rarely hesitates to take up a pending job at home. He is also extremely balanced and does not sway to any quick emotions, because of this one rarely sees him getting angry and annoyed about anything. He is also very understanding and supportive.
Saritha is a people's person. Her outgoing nature and ability to make friends with anyone is her strength. She loves to have people around and can network quickly in any new environment. She has a great sense of humor and is extremely loving and caring when it comes to children and others whom she loves.
Our passions are simple to describe – we love life! Every act and every step we take we ensure that we are enjoying and savoring the moments. We do not believe in living in the past and regretting on the wrong decisions. We are passionate about spreading happiness and ensuring that we are able to create an impact in our friends and families.
We will choose to always speak of the child's adoption in a positive light and encourage the child to think of their story with pride. We hope to share your child's dreams, milestones, success, and accomplishments with you through photographs and letters. We are open to having an open adoption with you. We are open to visits, inviting you to big life events in your child's life, and sending photograph books to share your child's life with you. Please know that we are open to these things, but we would only do what you are comfortable with.
We truly appreciate your time and energy that you are putting into this tough decision. Thank you for allowing us to share a little about ourselves. We will continue to pray for you, your decision, and ultimately your choice in the adoptive family you feel is the perfect fit for your child.
