Dear Expectant Mother,
We are Neelu & Mukund. Choosing the best for your child’s future is the purest act of love we can imagine. We are respectful of your immense love and courage in considering adoption for your child. Allow us the opportunity to share a glimpse of our lives with you. We have been married for 13 years and love living in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our community is diverse and filled with activities for families with children. We always dreamt of starting a family together and cannot wait for it to come true!
Thank you for taking the effort in getting to know us more!
We met during engineering school, but really started dating only in 2003 after we decided to pursue our careers in different countries. It was our friendship and strong values of loyalty and love that fueled the engine for a long drive to marriage! Funnily, “long scenic drives” is indeed our favorite activity together. We can’t wait to share our love with a child and want more than anything to become parents.
We had a colorful wedding in India in 2008, blessed by more than 300 friends and relatives. Mukund was already based in the US working as a software engineer, and Neelu joined him soon after to settle in California. Since then, we live and breathe the true spirit of both Indian and American cultures, filled with opportunities that are supported by a strong foundation of tradition. We will honor and celebrate your child’s cultural or faith traditions as well!

About Mukund by Neelu
Mukund is a kind-hearted, family-loving guy who is always full of energy be it at work or play. His intellect and focus have made him excel at many talents, earn success at work, but his humility is what wins the heart. He is my strength as he can find a silver lining in the darkest of clouds.
Mukund- 5 months of paternity leave! Can’t wait to stay home and bond with our little one.
About Neelu by Mukund
Neelu is friendly and outgoing, with a contagious smile. I could spend all my time with her. And so could a lot of other people, including my parents! She takes a keen interest in family life, be it healthy cooking or planning get-togethers. Neelu has a lot of creative talents to share and stimulate a child with, and I can already imagine how great a mom she will be.
Neelu mentors and tutors young kids in the community to share her love through volunteering. Neelu has taken a detour from her Sales career, onto focusing on being a stay-at-home mom for our child.
What We Love About Our Home and Community
- Friendly neighbors
- Hosting neighborhood potlucks
- Great schools and parks
- Walking around our safe community
- Nature trails and hikes
- Swimming in our backyard pool
We’d Like You to Meet Our Family
Our parents visit us annually from India, and spend at least a couple months with us. They can’t wait to welcome the little one home, and spend quality time together as grandparents. We each have an older brother, married and settled in India with kids. We love video-chatting with our nieces and nephews over the weekends.
We also have family and cousins across New York, Harrisburg, Connecticut and Seattle. 3 cousins live right here in the Bay Area! Our closest friends who have been there for us at the drop of a hat are part of our big family too! For the last 10 years, we have had a tradition of hosting our friends over for Thanksgiving dinner. It’s our gesture of gratitude towards both the country and our friends.
A Few More Fun Facts
- Mukund’s kids-photography has often left our friends wanting more!”
- “Neelu is fluent in Spanish! I was amazed and delighted to see Neelu interact with the locals in Barcelona! Her love for Spanish has brought her closer to the rich culture.”
We hold within ourselves the deep values passed on from generation to generation, in a culture that is centuries old. These core values of honesty, camaraderie, faith and optimism is what we believe to be foundational in nurturing an empathetic and resilient child.
We Promise To
- Love your child unconditionally
- Provide a healthy and safe home, filled with laughter and encouragement
- Help your child follow their dreams and become best versions of themselves
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for reading about us. We are most eager to hear the thoughts and aspirations you may have for your child. Love only grows bigger by sharing, and we are deeply touched that we may have an opportunity to share it with you.
We’d love to hear from you!
