Dear Expectant Mother,
Hello! We are Liam and Nidhi, a happily-married couple from San Francisco, California, hoping to extend our family through adoption. We are so grateful that you are taking the time to learn about us. We greatly admire your courage and the love you are showing your child by deciding to seek adoptive parents.
We are excited to open our hearts and home to a child. We hope that a glimpse into our lives and values will show you what kind of parents we will be, and that you will consider us as adoptive parents for your child.
We have been together six years and recently celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary. We met at a friend’s birthday party in San Francisco and were drawn to each other immediately (and ignored all our friends by the end of the evening!). Liam was attracted to Nidhi’s care-free personality and Nidhi found Liam to be warm, affectionate and quirky. Two years after we met, Liam proposed to Nidhi while on vacation in Costa Rica. We were married in a small and intimate ceremony at the San Francisco City Hall and ended the night with a dance party on wheels with friends and family aboard one of San Francisco’s historic cable cars.
We grew up in dramatically different places. Liam was born and raised in his beloved city of San Francisco and Nidhi was born and raised in India and moved to the US in her early 20s. In spite of growing up in different cultures, we were raised with very similar values, such as “family comes first,” “dreams don’t work unless you do,” and authenticity. We are blessed with a strong relationship built on love, respect, trust and the mutual desire to live a fulfilled and inspired life.
We both love to travel and have taken numerous international and domestic trips together. While home, we can be found tending to our backyard garden, curling up with a book in a hammock or relaxing watching our Zen aquarium with cheerful fish. We both enjoy hiking and feel blessed to live in the Bay Area with so many amazing hikes. Weekends involve seeing family & friends (impromptu drop-ins are common!) We enjoy hosting family and friends for dinners, sporting events or a good old barbeque where Liam gets to showcase his grill chops. One of our favorite weekend activity is spending time with our nephews and nieces, and we happily go the extra mile to be a warm and caring presence in their lives.
Liam is a native of San Francisco and his entire family still lives in the beautiful city by the bay! His favorite sport growing up was baseball and he started playing tenor saxophone when he was 11. Liam occasionally performs at SF Jazz clubs in a band he started with his brother. He has strong relationship with both his brothers, and sees their families frequently.
Liam’s father worked on San Francisco cable cars and his mother was a therapist for developmentally challenged kids. His dad taught him to be handy around the house and he picked up his love of music from his mother, a classically trained piano player. He is equally comfortable operating a power-drill to fix stuff around the house as he is expressing himself on a saxophone. Liam speaks Spanish and is able to hold his own while visiting extended family in Mexico.
Liam is a project manager in a large solar company. In high school, he sold sodas at the local ballpark, and in college, he worked part-time at the Seattle airport helping park large aircraft.
Liam by Nidhi
Liam is one of the sweetest people I know. He has a heart of gold and is always helping others in need. He makes me a better person by providing a loving and supportive partnership.
Liam has strong paternal instincts and goes above and beyond to be a father-figure to our nephews and nieces while also being a fun adult who would gladly plant a whoopy cushion to kids’ delight. He is looking forward to reliving childhood in his hometown of San Francisco and sharing his love of music with our child. I am confident that he is going to be an amazing dad.
Nidhi was born and raised in India along with her two older siblings before moving to the US. She has a strong bond with her mother and both her siblings and frequently visits her sister, who lives close by with her family.
With both her parents in academia (dad an engineering professor and mom a high-school teacher), Nidhi grew up with a strong commitment to learning and is always looking for her next challenge, whether it’s learning to cook a new cuisine, playing the piano, or trying out a new dance form. Nidhi loves traveling, camping and the great outdoors. She loves cooking healthy and tasty meals for the family and can’t wait for our family to grow. She is excited to share her favorite activities and explore new ones with our child.
Nidhi has a degree in engineering and financial management training from UC Berkeley. She works as an engineering director in a software company.
Nidhi by Liam
Nidhi is a thoughtful and kind person. One of the things I admire most about her is her dedication and commitment when she decides to do something in life.
Nidhi really lights up when she’s around kids, and kids gravitate towards her because of her fun-loving and affectionate nature. She is excited to share her favorite activities, like baking sugar cookies, and explore new ones with our child. I believe she will be a terrific mother and an anchor to our family, providing equal amounts of strength and nurturing.
We own a beautiful home in the sunny Potrero Hill neighborhood of San Francisco. We will be converting one of the bedrooms to a magical place for our child. Our neighborhood is diverse, vibrant and family-oriented with multiple families on the block raising young children. We have easy access from our home to kids’ playgrounds, tennis courts, a swimming pool and the public library.
Our Parenting Values
We are fortunate to share very similar core values of respect, empathy and hard work, and hope to teach, by example, those values to our child. We plan to provide a loving, supportive and stable home for our child.
We believe in good education and are committed to giving our child opportunities to carve his or her own unique path in life in pursuit of happiness. We want our child to have a variety of experiences through travel and community engagement and we strongly believe that diversity makes us stronger.
We are fortunate to have most of our family live close by. Our child will have plenty of cousins to play with (the youngest is 1 year old) and loving adults who will gladly pitch in to help with babysitting and be strong role models to our child (it takes a village to raise a kid!) Our promise to you and to ourselves is that we will always be there for our child.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about us. We hope you are inspired to find out more about us and we would love to know about you and your hopes and dreams for your child. Should we be your choice, your baby will be raised in a fun,
loving, and nurturing home. We would like our child to know his or her adoption story, and hope to hear about your wishes for contact. We wish the best for both you and your child as you make these difficult decisions.
