What is the best word to describe our family?

Fun! We enjoy weekly family dinners. With my niece and nephew- playing board games, Easter egg hunts, charades, summer slip n' slide days, dress up theme parties and having sleepovers.

-Prem

My best friend would describe me as...

“The best friend ever” being attentive to their needs, to be there when they need me the most, and accepting them as they are. I am easy going and enjoy trying new things ( foods and activities).

-Prem

What is the best word to describe our family?

Supportive

-Sandy

My philosophy on parenting is...

to be good role models and practice kind and firm parenting. Raising your child to be a good student, responsible, independent, loving and compassionate- living a happy, healthy and fulfilling life.

Dogs or cats?

Dog! Still hoping to get one - but let’s see how we do at the parenting thing first :-)

-Sandy

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you look at the night sky?

The beautiful stars and how peaceful the moment feels.

-Prem

My favorite place in the World is...

home. Home is where the heart is.

-Prem

Complete the sentence, “I can’t live without……”

my wife. We have been friends since High School and now married for twelve years. My wife is truly my best friend and my partner for life. It’s been 28 years of friendship and we’re going strong!

-Prem

I hope our birth mother is...

feeling supported because you have chosen this wonderful path for you and your child. We know you will make a great decision and we wish nothing but the best for you.

-Sandy

In five years, our relationship with our birth mother will...

be whatever you are comfortable with, we will respect your decision on level of openness.

-Prem

In five years, our relationship with our birth mother will...

be guided by your preference. Your child will always know you are the first page of their amazing story.

-Sandy

Dogs or cats?

I am a dog lover. I volunteer my time to animal rescue care and contribute to the ASPCA to care for dogs (and cats).

-Prem

Favorite season and why?

Winter brings Christmas! We love “Christmas”. We start decorating the day after Thanksgiving. Our family traditions are stuffing stockings, baking cookies, watching movies and wearing matching pj’s.

-Sandy

We are the best choice because…

We feel we are in the perfect place in our lives to provide a stable and loving home. We are an amazing team and we promise to do all we can to help your child grow in every way.

-Sandy

If I could change one thing about the World, it would be...

racism. In today’s world racism is heightened and we as a country and people are more divided than ever. We must remember that All Lives Matter!

-Prem

My best friend would describe me as...

caring, kind and compassionate - I am always there to lend a helping hand, an ear to listen and a shoulder to lean on.

-Sandy

When we argue, what’s it about?

Who to blame when the new recipe turned out bad!

-Sandy

I would never...

intentionally hurt someone.

-Sandy

The most special thing I own is...

my engagement ring - inscribed “ I promise you forever”. No matter what the future holds, we will always have each other.

-Prem

What scares you?

Snakes...even the little garden ones.

-Prem

Complete the sentence, “I can’t live without……”

My journal. I write in it every day. The closest we get to honesty is when we write for no one to read. Writing allows me to unwind and share my innermost thoughts without being judged.

-Sandy

I would never...

take my life for granted. I have a beautiful life filled with great family, amazing friends and a loving wife - Together they have shaped me into the man I am today.

-Prem

Three years from now, I hope our birth mom is…..

living her best life! Working towards her goals, dreams and aspirations knowing that she made the right decision in choosing us.

-Sandy

If I could choose one type of food to eat for the rest of my life, it would be:

Pizza! Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner. Hot or Cold. Pick your toppings and get creative!

-Sandy

Favorite season and why?

Summer. Being able to enjoy the outdoors - walks in the parks, road trips, outdoor grilling, planting flowers and vegetables (one of my favorite hobbies)

-Prem

My neighborhood is a good place to raise a family because…

It is a diverse neighborhood where our neighbors have all become like family.

-Prem

My neighborhood is a good place to raise a family because…

We live in a racially and culturally diverse neighborhood with great public and private schools and many places of worship.

-Sandy

If I could have dinner with anyone—dead or alive—I would pick...
