Aspiring dads in Minnesota

Hi there! We’re Michael and Ashwin, a home study-approved married couple from Minnesota. We are writing to you because our dream is to become dads through adoption.

We know deciding the best future for your baby cannot be easy, especially when you’re looking at a big stack of these profiles. Here are the top three things we’d want you to know about us:

1) We would give your baby a loving, safe, happy home. That includes a lifetime supply of hugs and corny dad jokes (even when they’re a teenager and think we're super uncool).

2) We will be your baby’s biggest cheerleaders. If he/she sets a goal, big or small, we will stop at nothing to make it happen!

3) We will make sure your baby grows up knowing their story – that an amazing act of love by their mom gave us the chance to be a family.

We also want you to know that we believe in open adoption. Our ideal situation would include ongoing contact with you as your child grows up (but we also understand if that’s not an option).

We hope this profile will help you to get to know us a bit, but it can’t possibly answer all your questions. We would love to have a no-pressure conversation to help you decide if we’re the right family for your baby.

You are the only person who can possibly know what’s best for your child. Whether you contact us or not, know that we are sending love and support your way.

Best wishes,
Michael and Ashwin

Who We Are

Like a lot of couples these days, our story starts with a dating app. Michael saw Ashwin's profile first and immediately had a crush. He decided to play it cool with a casual "wink".

Luckily, Ashwin responded right away. We spent a few days chatting by text. When we got together for our first date, we felt an instant connection.

Fast-forward to our one-year anniversary. After a romantic dinner, we stopped for a nightcap at a historic restaurant. Unbeknownst to Ashwin, Michael was carrying an engagement ring in his pocket. Michael got down on one knee and proposed, and Ashwin said yes!

The COVID-19 pandemic made planning our wedding a little tricky. In the end, this helped us realize that we didn't care about a big ceremony - we just wanted to be married to each other. We had a beautiful "micro-wedding" in front of our closest friends.

As early as our 2nd or 3rd date, we started talking about how we both wanted children. We have a happy, full life together, but we are so excited to be dads. We are realistic that having kids will come with many surprises and challenges, but we are ready to take them on together!
