From Us to You

Dear Expectant Mom,

Thank you so much for considering us. It takes a lot of love and bravery to make the decision to place your child for adoption. Should you choose us to bless with your child, please know that we will honor your courageous sacrifice of love for your child each and every day of their life and we will make sure they have every opportunity to live a full and happy life. We have both wanted to be parents for as long as we can remember. We didn’t find each other till in our early thirties, but when we did, we knew we were meant to be.

We want you to know your child will be so loved. We look forward to having your child join us on all of life’s adventures. We enjoy spending time together as a family and do everything from taking our dogs for walks, watching movies, playing sports, games, and baking. Amit’s family spent most of their free time together and we work hard to build that same closeness with our kids.

Amit is an Assistant Store Manager at a retail home and grocery store.  Natalie is an Office Manager at a Pediatric Therapy office that helps kids with speech therapy, occupational therapy and physical therapy. When blessed with a second child Natalie will become a stay at home mom. Natalie is excited about staying home and being able to enjoy time bonding with your child.  Felex will be in daycare part-time, so part of the day will just be focused on your little one. Natalie is looking forward to getting a new routine for our family to make the days and nights easier. Felex came to us at one year old so we have never experienced all the firsts. We are looking forward to that first time they roll over, laugh and crawl.

We live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest in a long cul-de-sac that has kids in about 10 of the 20 houses. They range from 1 year old to 13 years old. Almost every night in the spring and summer you will see the kids out playing together from the different houses. There is a tetherball and basketball hoop out there, plus they play football together. Most nights there is at least one dad out there playing with the neighborhood kids. Families come and ride bikes together and many of the homes have dogs so you will see them walking dogs often. Everyone takes good care of their homes and watches out for each other; we are so grateful to have found this area.

Thank you for taking the time to read our letter.  We look forward to getting to know you better and hearing about you. We know this decision isn’t easy and we want to support you in what you know is best for your child.

With Love,
Natalie and Amit

Why We are Choosing to Adopt

We have both wanted to be parents for as long as we can remember. We didn’t find each other until a little later in life, but when we did we knew we were meant to be together. We dearly love children and feel that life without them leaves a hole in our hearts.  Unable to have children and wanting to be parents we chose adoption as the best way to grow the family that we have always dreamed about.

We had been foster parents over the years and fostered 3 boys in our home. Our son Felex is almost 4 years old and has been with us since he was 1. We were his foster parents for the last 3 years and feel so blessed to have been able to adopt him in 2020.  He is so smart, loving and funny. We feel like he was meant to be part of our family. He loves to play any sports and dance to music. He started preschool just recently and loves to sing us songs that he learned and talk about his day. We are so excited to grow our family and Felex talks about being a big brother all the time. Your child will be so loved.

How We Met

We met at work where Natalie was Amit’s supervisor. We worked together for a few years and Amit was being promoted and moving to a new store and he asked Natalie out a few days after he had left.  Unfortunately, we only dated a few months before we went our separate ways. Six years later we were working together again and this time Natalie made the move and then transferred out so we could date again. Amit was such a hard worker, so positive and made Natalie feel completely comfortable.  Natalie was a very ambitious, driven and caring leader.

Our Lifestyle

We love relaxing together, going out for a dinner and movie, and playing board games at home. Amit will eat any food or at least try anything once where Natalie is more conservative and usually has the same thing when returning to restaurants.  Amit loves action movies and Natalie loves romance or comedy. We have to take turns to pick the movie and of course throw some Disney in there too; Felex loves going to the movies.  We are not sure if it is the big screen, the recliners at the movie theatre or the popcorn. We like to play games with Felex, and he loves to win, of course. He will play anything but right now he likes memory games the most. As a couple, we like to wind down and focus on each other at the end of the night by playing Scrabble or cards.  We feel so blessed to have found each other and have so much fun during our time together at home.

Natalie loves to bake. She has wonderful childhood memories of baking with her mom and is excited to create these experiences for our children. Her favorite is no-bake oatmeal cookies. She remembers requesting cookies last minute for bake sales frequently and they were the quick and delicious cookies her mom usually picked. Felex loves anything with frosting and sprinkles.  He does a good job as a helper and taste tester.  Amit prefers butterscotch oatmeal cookies but never turns down any cookie.

Amit loves teaching our son about sports, especially golf. Amit is so patient, and though Felex is not quite ready for anything serious, they enjoy putting in the backyard. We look forward to having another child to enjoy in our family activities. We also have backyard games to play in the evenings when the weather is nice like croquet or bean bag toss. Amit’s family spent most of their free time together growing up, and he looks forward to sharing that same closeness with our kids.

Home & Neighborhood

We are very fortunate to live in a beautiful Pacific Northwest community of Washington State where we get to experience all the beautiful seasons.  Winter is cold and is a great time to spend in the snow and building snowmen. Our neighbors all pitch in and help plow each other’s driveways and sidewalks throughout the season. Fall is beautiful and we have the luxury to go to local farms to pick our pumpkins so we can carve them for Halloween. Our whole street decorates for Halloween and Christmas and Amit and some of the other neighbors compete for who can get the most lights. In the spring we are busy outside getting our yards beautiful for the summer or just taking the dogs for a walk. Summer is for playing at nearby lakes, golfing and barbecuing. The whole street has kids and so kids are always out playing basketball, riding bikes or playing in the sprinklers. We love our neighborhood and feel so lucky to feel safe for our kids to play outside. We enjoy our time together so much and can’t wait to add another child to our family.

Our Dogs, Pretty Girl & Gizmo

We have two rescue dogs. Pretty Girl is a lab mix and Gizmo is a Jack Russell mix. Pretty Girl is happy to just lay around and relax. Gizmo loves to run around, help with the dishwasher and play with his toys. They both have brought so much happiness to us and are great companions to Felex.

Our Families

We are both close to our families and love spending time with them whenever possible. We both have good values and had very happy childhoods. Our parents taught us to respect others and appreciate what we have. We want this for our kids. Our families are so excited and supportive for us to grow or family and looking forward to a child to add to our family get-togethers and holidays.

Family Traditions

Holidays are our favorite; we love to decorate inside and out even when it was just the two of us.  In October we pick out our pumpkins at the pumpkin patch and make a day of it at a local farm to see the animals or have a pumpkin donut and then go home and carve. Trick or treaters love to come to our house since it is so lit up and so it’s fun passing out candy to all the kids so we can see all the costumes. November we look forward to time off of work so we can enjoy our family. Every year we have visitors and all work together to make a big turkey dinner.  During Christmas time, we take a cruise around the lake to look at Christmas lights to get in the festivities.  Christmas Eve is spent at home opening a few presents and just snacking; Christmas Day is with all the family eating our favorite foods and relaxing together talking about our hopes and dreams for the New Year.

Our Promise to You

Your child will know about you and their adoption story. They will know that you are very brave, carried them into this world, and made the ultimate courageous sacrifice out of love. That is a lot of love. We will share from the very beginning that they are adopted and so lucky to have two mothers. We hope that we can have pictures and stories with you that we can openly share with your child as they grow. We will be forever thankful to you for filling our lives with the love of your child.
