FC: Our Story | Jeetu & Leena
1: Dear Birth Mother and Friend, Thank you for considering us and giving us this opportunity to write to you about us, our home and our hopes and dreams for a child. We will never be able to thank you enough for giving us a chance to fulfill our dream of having a family. Deciding on a home for your baby that provides the foundation for love, health, happiness, and success is an important decision, but a very difficult decision. We’ve tried for many years to start our own family and we’re excited to start our family through adoption. We are hopeful our story shares with you our excitement and passion about raising a child with love, laughter, happiness and providing all the elements to fulfill his/her dreams. Jeetu and I have been married for ten years though we’ve know each other for almost 25 years. We met when we were 9 years old and friends call us soulmates. Most people are surprised when we tell them that we’ve know each other for 25 years. Our friendship started as childhood friends while growing up together in the same community. Our childhood group comprised of mostly boys and and I was the only girl in the group though they all considered me as part of the gang. Jeetu and I played many sports together while growing up as kids, though I still joke with Jeetu that he spent more time studying than playing. Growing up together as kids and over the last ten years, we’ve created a special bond rooted in love, support, and respect for each other. We constantly encourage each other to pursue our dreams, always do what we are passionate about, and strive to help and make a difference with everyone we meet in our lives. We feel the world has a lot to offer and it is up to us to grab the opportunity and make a difference. Our family and friends who have babies have always commented on our love, care, and and happiness while playing with their babies and children. We are excited about adopting a baby and we know we can provide a caring and nurturing home for a child. We have lived in the New England area for the last ten years and recently moved to a beautiful community of homes in an wonderful town. We are fortunate to live in a community and town that provides many fun, educational, and healthy activities for families and kids. Our town is filled with beautiful parks and lakes where families and kids regularly get together to enjoy various activities. The center of town is comprised of a beautiful park where many concerts and festivals for families are held throughout the year. Many parents bring their babies to the park during the summer and play in the grass. Seeing this sight of babies playing in the park has brought many a times smiles to both our faces and we hope we can some day enjoy the same activities with our child. Both Jeetu and I enjoy the outdoors and love exploring beaches and new quaint New England towns.
2: Our town is close to beaches and mountains and this enables us to enjoy and take advantage of the outdoors and enjoy various activities. We joke around with each other that we might be the only couple in New England that has visited every beach in the New England region. We love traveling with family and friends to many parts of the world We have been lucky enough to travel across the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Asia, and South America. We look forward to taking our child to some of our favorites places, enjoying the outdoors, teaching him/her about the beauty that nature has to offer and look forward to exploring areas we haven’t been to yet. Jeetu works for a software company in the Boston area and has a successful career in the software technology and sales. I work as a graphic designer for a well known consumer brand but plan on being a stay-at-home mom. We are fortunate enough to be financially secure on Jeetu’s income and I plan on leaving my position as soon as we adopt a baby and focus on being a mother and providing our child with love, nurturing, happiness and a foundation for success in his/her life. Leena (by Jeetu) Leena is a bubbly, friendly, and very loving individual. She is always smiling and has a beautiful energy about herself that attracts people towards her. Many of our friends have commented on Leena’s presence, smile, advice, and energy relaxing them and making them happy. She is very dedicated to every task she takes up, gives it a 100% and I know that she will do this with our baby and be a great mom. Leena loves the outdoors, sports, and activities like yoga and healthy cooking. She grew up playing competitive basketball for her college and as part of her sports she traveled extensively with her team. These experiences have instilled values of passion, commitment and hard work. Leena has wanted to be a mom for many years and I am so excited and envision the day when I can see her playing with our baby. Leena has a lot to offer from her love and caring personality, to the healthy food she cooks, to her passion for sports, and a positive personality. I am excited to raise a child with Leena who will will provide all these elements to her baby. Leena is my best friend and we work really well together as a team. As a team we share household responsibilities, celebrate our successes and most importantly, work together when dealing with challenges and opportunities. Leena and I are excited to bring a baby into this team and provide a solid foundation for success.
3: Jeetu (by Leena) Jeetu is a loving, patient, and caring person and he is going to make a great father. All our friends have commented on how gentle he is with their kids, plays and creates fun activities, and brings a lot of smiles to their kids faces. Jeetu is very loyal to his family and friends is always ready to provide help and join them to tackle their challenges. Jeetu is a hardworker and is always looking to provide the best to his family and ensure that his family is taken care of. While studying in college, Jeetu was on a full-scholarship and paid his way through college by working on the side. I see him bringing this dedication, care, and passion when raising our child. Jeetu enjoys the outdoors and visiting new towns, beaches, and organic farms. He is an avid reader and is constantly educating himself. He always comments on how he is going to be taking his baby to all these wonderful places and sharing his experiences with our baby. Jeetu is always available to help me with activities around the house and is always with me with dedication and passion as we tackle our goals. Jeetu is going to be a great father and is going to provide a solid, loving, caring, and happy home to this baby. We’ve had a dream for many years to open our home to a child. Although we haven’t been able to start a family of our own, we hope our story shares our excitement and passion to start a family through adoption. Both Jeetu and I have so much to offer to a child with our love, a solid home, our passion and culture, close family and friends, and a solid foundation for success and to make a difference. We would love to share all of this by welcoming a child into our family. Thank you for your immense courage and kindness to be considering an adoption plan. We wish you the best and words will never be able to express our appreciation and gratitude towards you. Sincerely, Jeetu and Leena
