Bhaskar & Smriti

We have been travelling towards this destination for a long time. We are very happy to have reached this milestone and feel ready to start this new and exciting chapter in our lives. We can understand that the road leading up to this decision has not been easy for either one of us but we feel that the future is full of opportunities and happiness.

Our Lifestyle

Hiking in South Africa

We are an easy going and fun-loving couple. We share many common interests and hobbies while maintaining our unique and distinct personalities.

We are fortunate to have the love and support of our parents who encouraged us to pursue our careers and dreams. We also love the fact that we both come back home after the end of the day and spend quality time together where we recharge.

We spend the weekends together, doing activities such as biking, hiking, eating out and traveling whenever we get some time off. We are global citizens and like to explore new countries and cultures. Nature and outdoors have a special place in our heart and when we travel, we take time out to get outdoors and reconnect with the planet that we all call home.

Bhaskar likes to fill his weekends with activities while Smriti likes to stay home and relax. We often negotiate and end up doing a little of both.

Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other

Relaxing

Bhaskar About Smriti: Smriti is a truly special person and I feel blessed that she chose me as her life partner. Her commitment to this marriage has been unwavering and has supported me through the hardships. We have seen great times together and also gone through the rough patches where we were held firmly by this relationship. I admire her for her courage, confidence and hard work. She has truly amazing organizational skills and highly efficient both at work and at home. She lives a very disciplined life and I have learned to live a more organized life because of her. She is very loving and keeps me grounded. She is always there when I need her. She is my soulmate.

Smriti About Bhaskar: Bhaskar is my lifeline. He makes each day special and worth it. He is the most patient and kind human being. His laughter is contagious. I admire his outlook towards life- be happy and keep others happy. I respect his love for the whole family (his and mine). He is the most caring husband, son, brother and uncle.

Adoption in Our Family

Our first experience with adoption was a few years ago when Bhaskar's younger brother adopted a baby in India. It came as a surprise to us at first but once we met the child we were instantly connected. He received the love and care of everyone including grandparents and is now a confident 4 year old boy. He is very close to both of us and we talk to him every weekend via FaceTime. He calls us bade papa (elder Daddy) and bade mamma (elder mummy). His brother also has a biological child (6 years old) and he is also equally close to us.

We wanted to have a biological child but always had the desire to adopt a child irrespective of that outcome. Over time we have become even more confident that adoption is the right option for us and now feel that adoption is a unique gift and a privilege that only a lucky few have in their lives. We feel blessed to be presented with this opportunity.

Our House and Neighborhood

Our Home

We live in a charming colonial style single family home in the beautiful state of Connecticut. Our home is in a lovely suburban neighborhood. The house has three bedrooms and three baths along with a dining room, office and gym. Our favorite room is the family room which is connected to the open kitchen and is filled with sunlight during the day. On weekends we spend most of the time here cooking, eating, reading and working. We have a sprawling front yard and fenced back yard with patio.

The neighborhood is very safe and we have lovely neighbors that we get along with well. The school district is ranked best in the state and top 10 in the country. The suburban town often ranks as one of the best places to live in U.S. There are several parks within minutes from our home with endless recreational options including swimming pool, bike paths, hiking trails, summer camp, golf etc.

The town center is at a five-minute drive with eateries and activities for kids. There are annual events in town for kids including a Halloween stroll.

Our Extended Families

Family Time

Our extended family is spread all over the US and India and are as diverse culturally as they are geographically.

Smriti's older brother lives in Los Angeles with his wife and 2 adorable kids. We often go on vacations together and those are some of the most memorable trips, trying new foods, exploring new places together. We love walking and exploring new places on feet.

With Bhaskar's Family in India

Bhaskar's younger brother lives in India with his parents, wife and 2 beautiful boys who we meet couple times a year. We spend time playing with the kids, enjoying all kinds of food and the kids love spending time in the public parks when they visit us.

Both our parents still live and work in India. They visit us every year. When our families are here in US, we love going out on day trips and they also love shopping. We spend most evenings at home, cooking and eating together, playing cards and watching movies together.

We both are close with each other's families and they have been very supportive of our decision all along. They are all very excited and eager to welcome this new addition into the family.

From Us to You

This letter feels anything but usual. We have been married for 13 years and plan to spend the rest of our lives together. During this journey we have had ups and down like most couples and now are closer than ever before. As physicians both of us chose a very demanding profession which is equally fulfilling and humbling. Despite the hardships and long separations that we have had to endure as part of the long medical training we both feel blessed and wouldn't want it any other way. There were times when we were on the opposite ends of the country for years together and spent countless hours and dollars on airplanes just to see each other for 24 hours.

We have been trying to have our own child for the last seven years and have gone through many IVF cycles. We have finally come to realize that it's not meant to happen. However, we know deep in our hearts that this journey is incomplete without a child and have been thinking about adoption for a while now. We needed time to arrive at this decision but feel prepared now feel confident that this the absolute best decision for us. We do understand that adoption comes with a lot of responsibilities and we are prepared to provide the very best life for our child. We are fortunate to have the support system including a loving and caring family and network of friends who will step in when we need them. We understand that the road ahead is not going to be always easy and there will be challenges. We, however, feel that the strong foundation of a loving and supportive family that is open minded and willing to accept the uncertainties will help us thrive together. We have as much fear of the unknown as you do but that's largely driven by our desire to be a successful parent and to provide this child with all the love and attention that they deserve. We have no doubt that once we take on this new role we will never look back and our lives will be even more fulfilling and enriched. We are avid travelers and nature lovers as you can see from our profile. We can't wait to take this little one with us on our adventures.

We are excited to be on this journey together and can't wait to meet with you in person so we can get to know each other. We are flexible to exploring all forms of communication (semi open or open) after adoption and would regularly keep in touch with emails, mails with pictures of the child including all special occasions, holidays etc. We feel that the presence of biological parents in child's life is important for his/her well being. However, we are willing to respect any decision that you make about the extent of contact.

Thanks for reading our letter.

Best,

Bhaskar & Smriti
