Sundaresh & Anita
We are so honored that you have chosen to read through our profile. We hope the following information will provide an insight into our lives. We have a lot of love to give and god-willing look forward to having a child in our lives. Being parents to your child would be a true privilege. Please take your time looking through our profile; we look forward to meeting you.
Our Favorite Vacation Spot
As a couple we enjoy traveling together, seeing different parts of the world and the United States, while also visiting family and friends. Vacation is a nice way for us to bond together and unwind from the hectic pace of life. It's a bit difficult to put a finger on a favorite spot because every place is really educational and provides us a different cultural experience.
Normally in the winter or early spring, we try to look for some place warm to visit. Like an island in the Caribbean or Mexico. These vacations are one of Sundaresh's favorites because he tends to like to sit on a beach under an umbrella and sleep. Anita on the other hand also enjoys the beach, but likes to read on the beach and get some much-needed warmth and sun.
During the summers we have traditionally chosen a city location. For example, one of our favorite cities in the world is London, and this past fall we visited Prague and Vienna for the first time. Each city has its own unique traditions and cultures that we enjoy learning about. Once we have a child to complete our family, we hope to bring him or her on our adventures, so we may explore and bond together as a family.
Our Promise to You
Our promise to you is that your child will be in a safe, secure and loving home. We promise to support their dreams and teach them how to become a good person in this complicated world.
We will never let your child just fall, as we will always be there pick them back up and support them until they are ready to walk on their own. We will do this because we treat our marriage this way. It's one of the many pillars that keeps the foundation of our marriage strong.
This child will be our own, and we will ensure that the child has the opportunity to stay in touch with you, as you'd like. We understand the importance of open adoption. We will also ensure the child is part of our families, entrenched with the cousins' lives and our big, extended communities, both in our neighborhood and Indian heritage.
Why We Chose Adoption
We chose adoption because we want to have a child to call our own. Anita has always wanted to adopt a child, even before we were married. Anita also worked at the Department of Children and Family Services during the first two years of our marriage. It was during this time that we knew we wanted to explore adoption at some point in our lives. We fundamentally believe there are so many children in this world who deserve to be part of a family and loving home.
We want to have a child that we can share our experiences with and bring up to be a valuable member of society. There are too many children in this world that need be loved. And, we believe we have incredible love to share with this child, who will complete our small family. We know it will take time for all to acclimate to a new family, but we are committed and dedicated to giving this child the very best home we possibly can.
Our Extended Families
The two of us are the first children in our families to be born in the United States. Our families are originally from India and immigrated to the United states in the late 1960's and early 70's. We both live close by to our respective parents, and we do try and get together as often as possible. Family is important in our culture, and we rely on their support as we move through different phases in our lives. Our families encourage us and guide us when we are challenged. Our relationships are a special bond full of love, laughter, and good food.
When our entire family gets together it's big and boisterous. We do have some traditions, mainly around cooking food together and telling old stories. Getting together and having a big meal is a regular staple in our lives, celebrating birthdays and milestones, traveling together and learning about what’s new in everyone’s lives over tea, a roaming fire in the fireplace and music and movies.
Our families support our decision to adopt and are rooting for us to be parents soon. Our family is unique in the sense that we blend American and Indian culture, encouraging each other to live our best lives. We also really enjoy spending time with our nieces on both sides of the family. Family is important to us.
Our House and Neighborhood
Two years ago, we moved into our neighborhood, and this change in our lives has greatly enhanced our quality of life. We love our house and our neighbors and are so fortunate to have found this quiet, but beautiful area in the city to call our own. Sundaresh gets to garden in our little, urban backyard and tinker in the garage. Anita gets to decorate the house and pick flowers for the garden; we really enjoy our kitchen together and love to entertain family, friends and neighbors.
Our neighborhood block is full of caring, diverse families, who support each other, spend time together, look out for each other’s safety and houses, while creating new traditions together, such as an annual ornament exchange, block parties in the summer and a festive and safe Halloween house-decorating contest. And, we have a number of families on the block with children of different ages.
Our kitchen gets the most light during the day, and it is where we spend most of our time. The living room is Anita's cozy retreat and the basement rec room is Sundaresh's favorite place to watch a movie and unwind. Our house has a cozy, inviting feel and we can't wait to bring a child into our lives to complete our home.
From Us to You
Hello! We are Anita and Sundaresh. We are so honored that you have taken the time to review our profile and learn more about us. We wish you peace during this time.
We met online through Match.com. After realizing how much we had in common we decided to meet for our first date at a sushi restaurant. Sundaresh was immediately struck by Anita’s beauty and our dinner date turned into a three-hour conversation where we talked about everything from life, work and what we thought of the world. Our connection was instant and continues to grow every day. We know relationships are work in progress, but cherish the time we spent dating, getting to know each other, learning about each other and how we would function as a couple.
Now that we have been married for seven years, we are excited to add a child to our home. Ever since Anita was a child, she always wanted to adopt a child, whether or not she had the opportunity to get married. Unfortunately, it is not in the cards for us to have a biological child. We had discussed adopting a second child, if we were fortunate to have one of our own, but now we are on the path of adopting a first child and are excited about this opportunity. There are so many children in this world that deserve a loving, stable home, and we would be proud to be parents of a child in need of a home.
Children are the heart of families. We don’t have any current family or extended family members through adoption, but we do have friends and colleagues who have adopted both domestically and internationally. While we are both of Indian descent, we are born and raised in the United States, and our American identity is important to us; however, we have a deep appreciation for our culture and for other cultures. Thus, our interest in wanting to adopt to create a multicultural family, if you will.
As a couple we are most excited to build a family of three . We look forward to playing with legos with our child, building puzzles and forts together and spending quality time as a family, outdoors. We also look forward to family dinners, a big ritual of ours, and introducing our child to our extended families, family friends, and our dear, neighborhood community. We are eager to create new memories as a family of three and also want our child to grow up closely with our young nieces .
We cannot wait to share birthdays, holidays, block parties and cultural gatherings with our child . Both of us enjoy interaction with children, and look forward to learning from our child, too .
We are two people that are ready to provide the love and support to your child that they will need as they grow up in this complicated world. We would like to have an open adoption, if you are also open to this. We would like to continue to share your child's life with you, as we parent them. We never want them to forget where they are from, and we want to make sure that they are still connected to their biological heritage and ancestry. Whatever you decide, we promise we will treat your child as our own, and we will love and nurture them for the rest of their lives.
