Hello! We are Neeti and Pankaj from the San Francisco Bay Area. We appreciate you taking the time to read about us, and to consider us as parents to your child. We hope you will connect with us and find out more about the home and loving family we wish to provide for your child. We have great respect for your decision and would love to learn about you and your hopes and dreams for your child.
We are truly excited and blessed to have the opportunity to become parents, and are grateful for your help. We look forward to both the joys and responsibilities of raising a child. We are looking forward to giving our child a warm and loving home, providing him or her with a life of love and joy, and instilling in our child curiosity and a sense of wonder. We look forward to exploring with our child the beauty of music, arts, and culture and providing him or her with every opportunity to pursue a great education. Most importantly, we look forward to encouraging our child to follow his or her dreams, whatever they may be!
We have been together for 14 years. We met online while Pankaj was in Seattle, WA and Neeti was in Bangalore, India. We dated online and as fate would have it, Neeti ended up moving to Seattle for work, and we have been together ever since! We moved to California five years ago after living for ten years in Seattle, and now live in a small town in the “Silicon Valley” area south of San Francisco. It is a safe and beautiful community surrounded by parks and trails.
Our weekdays always start with a cup of tea and breakfast together in the morning before we go to work. Each evening we cook dinner together and go for an evening stroll. We both look forward to this time together as it allows us to share our day with each other. After that we either put on some Netflix or relax with some music and reading. Our weekends are often spent with friends and family, sometimes sharing dinners with a variety of cuisines from Mexican to elaborate Indian meals. We love to travel. We take trips to various National Parks each year—this year we visited Zion, Grand Canyon and Yosemite National Park. We also have the good fortune to visit other countries regularly, where we love experiencing diverse cultures and ideas. In recent trips, we especially loved the churches in Barcelona, Spain and the 2,000-year-old Colosseum in Rome.
We are excited imagining our child sharing our morning breakfasts and taking walks in the evening or bicycling with our child. We can’t wait for our child to experience the many kid-friendly activities in the Bay Area and beyond: Going to zoos, aquariums, water parks and Legoland, and enjoying Pixar movies and Harry Potter books together. We look forward to sharing our holiday traditions from Thanksgiving dinner to the excitement of Christmas morning.
