Thank you for taking the time to get to know us! We are Sumon and Sanhita from Shakopee, Minnesota. We have been married for over 12 years and during that time we have built a happy, loving and committed life. We want to let you know that if you select us as a family for your child, we will spend the rest of our lives making them feel loved, always honoring the courageous choice you made.
We love children and have never pictured life without them in our family. We adopted Shreya at birth in 2013 and she came as a blessing into our lives. We maintain a very open and good relationship with her birth parents. We spend a lot of time with family and friends, playing outside, swimming, exploring new places, exposing Shreya to new activities such as classical dance classes, gymnastics classes, solving puzzles, and making new friends. When Shreya is not busy playing outside with local buddies, she likes to spend time with parents and grandparents. She is very excited to bring her sibling home and take care of her/him as a responsible big sister.
We are so excited to bring a second child into our home and we hope that it comforts you to know we have a special place in our hearts for you. We are very excited to expand our family through adoption! We are financially secure and we are able to provide a stable and secure home for our children, as well as many fun activities and lots of love. Your child will know how courageous and selfless you were for them. Our hope is that you will consider us in your search for a loving home for your child.
About Sumon by Sanhita:
Sumon works as a Director of Business Development for a large, multinational company. He’s honest, intelligent, and thoughtful and loves to make people laugh. Our home is filled with laughter every single day- thanks to Sumon. His strong values and integrity make it so easy to love him and I’ve honestly never known a better man. As far as his interests, Sumon likes football, biking, spending quality time with Shreya, doing home projects and also enjoys making/assembling new computers. He always puts his family first. He has such a strong sense of family and shows it every day by being a remarkable and responsible husband and a father. I would not be who I am today if it weren’t for Sumon’s love, support and encouragement. He is truly my best friend and I feel lucky to be his wife.
About Sanhita by Sumon:
Sanhita works as an Engineering Consultant for a multinational insurance Company. Sanhita also volunteers part-time as a Teacher of technology education. She takes great interest in spending time with her afterschool elementary school students. She is warm, loving and creative. I knew that I wanted to marry her on our first date. She is the kind of person that lights up a room with her contagious smile. She is genuine, kind and compassionate but the quality that I admire most about Sanhita is her selflessness. She puts everyone she knows ahead of herself. Sanhita loves baking and cooking new dishes, whenever she gets time. She has so much love to give that it amazes me sometimes. She is everything a mother should be to a child. Sanhita takes pleasure in making sure our family has a fun, happy and loving home. I can’t wait to see the overwhelming happiness she will feel when a second child joins our family.
From Both of Us:
We are glad that you took the time to get know a little about us and our fun filled lifestyle. We enjoy our lives now and look forward to new adventures and the enrichment of welcoming a second child to our family. We realize that raising a child can be challenging, but we are eager and ready to meet those challenges. We hope to have the opportunity to get to know you better.
We wish the best to you as you make some important decisions for yourself and your baby. Please take care of yourself and know that our thoughts are with you during this very difficult time.
Our very best wishes,
Sumon and Sanhita
