From Us to You

Thank you for taking the time to read our story. We hope that you and your loved ones are safe during this pandemic. As you glance through our profile, we hope that you will get a sense of who we are and understand our journey to adoption. If you should ultimately decide to choose us, please know that you will have made our dream of becoming parents together come true. We will nurture and love your child to live to his/her fullest potential and to always be the best version of him/herself. Parenthood is truly a gift and we hope that you will feel comforted in knowing that your child will be well taken care of.

We knew early on that we wanted to grow our blended family. Our journey did not go as planned, but we ultimately decided that adoption was the best path for us. We hope that the road ultimately leads to you. We have so much love in our hearts and will feel extremely grateful and blessed to care for and nurture your child. It would bring incredible joy into our lives to watch them grow into an amazing adult.

As you turn the pages and take a glimpse into our lives, we hope we can get the opportunity to create new memories with your child. We are avid nature lovers who are active in many outdoor activities such as skiing/snowboarding, hiking, camping and golfing. We also have a passion for travel and adventure and believe that one of the best ways to experience a new culture is through food. We hope to expose your child to the beautiful and diverse world in which we live and allow him/her to find their own passion in whatever extracurricular activities they desire.

We are fortunate to have family close by, and although Albert’s siblings are in California and Michigan we have been able to spend important events with them. We look forward to roasting marshmallows in our backyard fire pit, hosting BBQs and celebrating the holidays as a family. We are also lucky to have a network of friends who are incredibly supportive. We feel blessed to always have people to rely on.

We hope that you will enjoy learning about our lives and that we may one day be fortunate enough to hear about yours. We can only imagine what a difficult and confusing time this must be for you. We admire your selflessness and want to comfort you in knowing that your child will be raised in a home full of love and support. We have hope that we will complete our family and we make a vow to you that we will provide the best environment filled with patience and love as we watch your child blossom into adulthood.

About Us

It was 2015 and we were both on our way to Chicago on business. Shruti had recently hiked Machu Picchu and incidentally didn’t book her typical aisle seat. She was late getting on the plane and when she leaned across Albert’s aisle seat to throw her computer on her seat, Albert knew he had to meet her. It took a few minutes for her to settle in and get off the phone but when she did, right in the middle of the safety check, Albert gently leaned in to ask “why do you think they don’t want you to inflate the life vest on the plane?” Her response made Albert laugh and by the time they landed in Chicago…they knew.

Shruti grew up in a small town in New England next to the one Albert lived in and where her mother still resides. Albert had grown up in Pennsylvania and had come to New England 25 years before for college. We talked about many things including concerts we had both been to – separately – places we had visited – separately – but even then we both knew we wanted to do these things together. We dated for a year and a half, moved in into a new house in the suburbs and got engaged 7 months later. A month after we shared the joyful news with our friends and family, Albert lost his mother and sadly, Shruti unexpectedly lost her father 5 months later. We got married soon after on Mother’s Day weekend 2018 but through all the sadness, we found joy in our families and in each other. As a couple, we have only become stronger and our love creates the solid foundation for our life-long friendship.

About Shruti

Shruti has an incredible amount of love to give. She has an amazing smile that can light up any room or heart. Her warmth is infectious and her compassion for others is endearing. I knew the moment I met her I had to have her in my life and feel blessed every day that she chose me. She is a wonderful cook and takes such good care of me that I am totally spoiled. She is also a solid downhill skier and served as an instructor for inner-city children in the past, which showcases her generosity. She loves deeply and cares passionately. I have truly found my person and look forward to growing old together.

About Albert

Albert is an incredibly warm, patient, kind soul with so much love to give that I feel blessed to be one of the recipients of his heart. I treasure the joy of being married to him and the unconditional support he provides. He is a thoughtful husband, a loving father to his two children from a previous marriage and a generous friend. He is an avid cyclist and frequently rides 100-miles in support of autism awareness as his son has special needs. His patience is a special virtue from which I can learn. His smile melts my heart and I am truly grateful I found my person and a life-long friend in him.

Why We Are Choosing to Adopt

Our decision to adopt was one we came to after a struggle with infertility. We knew early on that we wanted to grow our blended family, and while the journey may not have started out in the way we planned, ultimately it was always about sharing love with a child. After two failed rounds of fertility treatments, we researched alternative options and decided that adoption was the best path for us. We hope that the road ultimately leads to you.

We love all children and will feel extremely grateful and blessed if we are able to complete our family through adoption. There is so much love in our hearts and having the ability to care, nurture and watch a child grow into an amazing adult will be deeply fulfilling and will also bring incredible joy into our lives.

What We Will Teach Our Child

We will teach your child the same values that were instilled upon both of us. We will communicate that hard work and a good education are the foundation with which to build his/her future. He/She will know that they should always treat others with kindness and compassion since we never know what is happening in others’ lives. We will encourage them to speak up when they feel something isn’t right. And most of all, we will teach them to live a life full of gratitude because every day we are able to live a healthy and happy life is a blessing.

Our Families and Friends

Albert is one of four children and Shruti is the elder of two sisters. We both grew up knowing our extended families and have fond childhood memories of playing outside in the summers during what these days feels to be simpler times. We see Shruti’s family often as we live local to her sister and her family as well as 15 minutes from her mom. Even though Albert’s family is spread across Michigan and California, we make a special effort during these unprecedented times to have family Face Time where we all can see each other and catch up. Shruti’s niece and nephew are the light of her life and being around to watch them grow up is a blessing. Albert is amazingly supportive to our only remaining parent, Shruti’s mother, and we feel lucky to have her close by.

We both have an amazing network of supportive friends with whom we are close. We often take skiing trips and summer vacations together and have amazing memories to cherish. Even though our 2020 travel plans to Italy were derailed, we expect to revisit the trip in a different way, hopefully with an addition to our family. We love to entertain and have managed to find creative ways to see our closest friends for socially-distanced events at our house. We truly feel grateful knowing there is so much support in our lives from all aspects of our network.

Home and Neighborhood

We moved into our current neighborhood nearly four years ago, and at the time, it was a new neighborhood under construction. Aside from our home’s footprint, we were involved in every design detail from picking the color of the hardwood floors to the hardware on the kitchen cabinets. It was a labor of love in that we spent our first spring grading our landscape to make a functional backyard complete with an enormous vegetable garden and fire pit perfect for roasting marshmallows on those cold New England nights. We know all our neighbors, and in fact, host annual block parties in the fall. It’s really nice to know we always have people watching out for us. We became especially close as a community during the pandemic as we found comfort in each other and sanity through all the social distance gatherings. In fact, the big project this year was the amazing shed Albert built to store all of our family gear and it became quite fun for the neighborhood kids to be a part of. Our cul-de-sac is always full of neighborhood children playing hide-and-seek, shooting hoops or riding bikes. It is a wonderful neighborhood in which to raise a child.

Our Adventures

We love to travel, especially to other countries, since both of us have a deep appreciation of other cultures and unique foods. We love to try new things and you will often find us on the slopes during any season either skiing/snowboarding/snowshoeing in winter or hiking and cycling in the fall/spring. We enjoy playing golf, lounging by the water or simply enjoy watching good old New England sports teams. As music lovers of all genres, you will often find us at various concerts dancing and singing like no one is watching. From the Rocky Mountains to the castles of Quebec or the valleys of the Finger Lakes to the rolling hills of the Douro Valley and all places in between, we feel blessed to have shared these experiences together. We hope to one day be able to share these adventures and explore the world with your child.

What We Will Share with Your Child

Your child will always know who brought them life and into this glorious world. He/She will know how special they are because of how many people love them. We expect to have a level of openness that is comfortable as the situation allows. We are forever grateful to you and ensure that your child’s life will be filled with unconditional love and support.

Our Promise to You

We hope first that you are safe, healthy and with those whom you trust to help support you through not only this pandemic but also as you embark on the next phase of your journey. This whole process can feel lonely at times but we want you to know that we are here in whatever capacity you wish. We vow to give your child a home with love, laughter and joy and will raise them to feel safe and secure with all the support they need to become the best person they can be. It’s more important than ever with the state of the world to teach him/her to respect and celebrate differences among each other. We will encourage them to explore and embrace all the opportunities the world has to offer. Finally, we will just love them with all we have and respect whatever milestones you wish to share. Our journey to parenthood has been a challenging one so we feel truly blessed that you are considering creating this opportunity for us.
