Deepika & Deepak
Hi, we are Deepika and Deepak. We recognize the choice you are making is one of the most difficult ones. We admire the strength and courage you have in considering adoption as a hopeful future for your child. We are writing to tell you a little about us and the loving family we could provide for your child.
We met in college and have known each other for more than 25 years. After 7 years of courtship, we were married in 2002, with blessings from our parents, family and friends. We believe that our personalities and strengths complement each other. We credit our strong foundation of friendship, family values, deep commitment and connection to each other as the reasons behind our successful and enduring relationship.
Becoming parents made our bond even stronger, particularly in dealing with the loss of our first-born son, Diyan and welcoming our daughter Vedavita into the family. We love being parents and would love to parent another child. We have the love, energy and dedication for the joys and challenges of becoming an adoptive family. We are also responsible pet parents to 2 cats (Misha, and Onyx) and a dog (Layla), who are all rescues.
We own a charming 4 bedroom, 3 bath home in the city of Saratoga, California. Our neighborhood is multicultural with many young families nearby. We are walking distance from a great park, community swimming pool, coffee shop, library and the farmers market. At home, we enjoy cooking as a family. We also love spending time in our backyard, gardening and enjoying the sun. We grow many fruits and vegetables that we share with our friends and family.
Deepika notes that Deepak has an amazing ability to make people comfortable, and admires his warm, caring and genuine nature. He works as business development leader at Amazon and enjoys camping, hiking, biking, golfing, and traveling. He loves to entertain family and friends. At many of our gatherings he is often seen spending time with the kids, developing impromptu games to keep the children entertained. He is a dedicated father and greatly looks forward to welcoming another child into the family.
Deepak admires Deepika’s maturity and creativity, and loves her thoughtfulness and goofy sense of humor. She enjoys her job as a program manager, where she enjoys the interaction with people, and working in a global team environment. She especially appreciates the flexibility her job offers, allowing her to focus on the family. Deepika also enjoys pottery, crochet, painting and quilting, and loves making creative meals, for family and friends.
We share the household and parenting responsibilities, and continue to work hard in our busy lives to spend quality time with family. We are thoughtful parents with realistic expectations, hoping to raise our children to be confident, balanced, and respectful of the world around them. While we are dedicated to enriching our children’s lives with joy and love, we also want to be the ones there for bath time, bedtime and to take care of their ouchies.
Vedavita is four years old. She is a kind, empathic, observant and curious child who loves art, dance and singing. She is a great storyteller, and also enjoys cooking with her mother. Vedavita is very excited to become a big sister.
Both our families live in India, despite the distance we share a very close bond with them. We travel frequently to visit them, and keep in touch regularly via phone and video calls. This has also helped our daughter to develop a strong bond with her grandparents. Deepika’s younger sister who lives near Sacramento, is a loving aunty who is excited to see our family grow, and to be able to nurture her new niece or nephew the same way she does Vedavita.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We are excited about growing our family through open adoption, and look forward to keeping in touch with you over the years. If you feel we might be the right family for your child, we would love to hear from you and answer any questions you might have. We wish the very best for you and your baby.
