Dear Expectant Mother,
Hello from Tirtha and Chitrita, from the sunny SF Bay area.
We are a happily married couple, together for 11 years, who are greatly excited about being loving and responsible parents to your child. Thank you so much for reading our letter to know more about us. We are humbled that you would consider us and we would appreciate the opportunity to speak with you, to tell you more about us, and find out about your hopes and dreams for your child.
What We Love To Do
- Traveling & long road trips
- Arts and crafts
- Board games & puzzles
- Trying cooking recipes from all over the world
Both of us were born and raised in India in close-knit, loving families. Tirtha moved to the US to obtain a Ph.D. while Chitrita came to work in a top technology company. We met here more than 13 years ago, were married in 2009, and have been sharing our lives together since. Our years together have been a journey of loving and growing up with each other. We have crossed many oceans together, and made beautiful memories with our shared love of movies, museums and art, home improvement projects, building and nurturing our little front yard garden, creating arts and crafts, and experimenting with recipes together.We live in Fremont, CA in our warm and beautiful house. Both of us work in the technology field and are blessed with a strong network of friends in our neighborhood. Chitrita’s parents live in India and visit us often.Our families and life experience taught us to value education, to love all human beings without prejudice, and have humility and appreciation for the little gifts of life. We are ready to give unconditional love and care to your child and to instill the same life lessons which have been guiding lights on our path together.
Our Friends & Family
Both of us are only children. Tirtha’s parents have passed away but he maintains a strong relationship with his extended family of uncles, aunts, and cousins in India. Chitrita’s parents are retired from public service jobs and also live in India but visit us often in the US. They are so excited to welcome a grandchild and look forward to helping care for him or her.
Both of us are blessed to have a close network of caring friends around our neighborhood and all throughout the US. Most of them have small children with whom we enjoy wonderful experiences—we look forward to introducing our little one to this strong community of friends and family.
About Tirtha, by Chitrita
Tirtha is a perfect package of sense and sensitivity. He is very responsible and will go out of his way to help others. He brings to our relationship stability and balance, traits I appreciate and respect more with each passing day. And he always keeps his promises. He has respected the wish of his mother on her passing, to keep the staff of her photography studio, even as the business has been dwindling.
An avid reader and a gamer, he is my living encyclopedia (many friends and office colleagues call him ‘Professor’). Also his funny side has rubbed off on me, I have a funny bone or two now!
11 years ago, I had written on my wedding page: “Tirtha did not sweep me off my feet but he made a place for himself and chose to stick there and stay there.” To this day, he has stayed there solidly standing by my side, every step of the way. I can’t wait to experience what amazing things Tirtha will bring as a father.
About Chitrita, by Tirtha
I met Chitrita on a warm Indiana afternoon more than 13 years ago and thought “this is a serious and shy girl”! Since then, I have come to know her to be light-hearted and loving, and that you can count on her 100% no matter the situation. Loyalty is her greatest character trait—to friends and family alike. She is pragmatic when the situation demands, but amazingly kind and care-giving to the people who need it.
Chitrita is a senior leader in a large multi-national company, but she still finds time to work on home improvement projects, to talk to friends and parents every day, to fill our home with wonderful little paintings and crafts that she creates, to educate herself on world affairs and social issues, and to travel and watch movies with me at a moment’s notice. She has gone through the grief of losing a pregnancy and came out stronger and more resolved than ever to build a family with me. I will always be thankful for that and I am sure that she will be an amazing mother to our adopted child.
Our Home & Community
Our home is located in a nice, quiet neighborhood in the city of Fremont, on the foothills of East Bay mountains in the sunny San Francisco Bay area. We have a three-story townhouse with three spacious bedrooms and a cozy little front yard, where we do lots of gardening. The nursery for our child is a warm and sun-drenched room, just beside the master bedroom, overlooking mountains.
We live in a close-knit homeowners’ community where many families have children who play together in the common open space. One of Fremont’s most highly respected high schools is a stone’s throw distance from our house. Playgrounds, parks, libraries and hiking trails are also within 5-minute driving distance.
Our Values on Parenting
We are excited to grow our family through adoption. We have had disappointments trying to have a child of our own, so we are grateful to have the opportunity now to share all of life’s milestones with a child—birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, and many more. Together, we will build a family with values rooted in basic decency, humility, and love for all human beings. Education, whether from school/college or life experiences, is of paramount importance to us. We have succeeded by valuing these opportunities ourselves and wish to nurture the love of learning in our future child. We intend to provide all the opportunities and guidance we can to help our child explore his or her innate passions, whatever they may be. We love to visit museums, art galleries and National Parks, and would love to introduce our child to these treasures from early on.
Tirtha used to author, act, and direct theatrical dramas. Chitrita used to conduct debating sessions and produce literary magazines in her college days. We hope to rekindle those passions in ourselves and in our child. We are both lovers of books and movies/documentaries related to history, science, and social issues and hope to have our child grow up surrounded by such intellectual stimulation beyond school education.
