About Us

contact

Stephanie grew up in Washington, went to college in Wisconsin, and lived in Phoenix before attending graduate school in Tennessee. Rashmi grew up in Texas, went to college in Connecticut, attended medical school in the Caribbean, and did her clinical training in Brooklyn. We were both collegiate athletes – Stephanie played basketball and Rashmi played tennis. Stephanie works from home as a fundraiser for a nonprofit organization that mentors young people. Rashmi is a doctor and loves teaching and treating patients from all backgrounds. When we’re not working, we like to travel, exercise in the many parks where we live, eat at new restaurants, cook together (Rashmi is the sous chef), and listen to live music. We have been married for 2 years but have been in a committed relationship for more than 7 years.


Our Home

contact

We live in a luxury apartment complex in the heart of a metropolitan city in Texas. We have one dog (a Havanese named Albus) who loves kids, cuddling, and hiding his toys under furniture. Our community is very diverse and there are many families with small children who live in our apartment complex. Our neighborhood is safe, close to great schools, and has many parks within walking distance.


Our Extended Family

contact

We are both close with our families, and each of us is the oldest of two siblings. Rashmi lost her younger brother to cancer in 2014. Though this was a tragedy, his death has made us certain that we want to adopt at least 2 children – the bond shared between siblings is something we want a child to experience. Stephanie grew up in a Christian household and religion is very important throughout her large, extended family. Her parents and brother live on the west coast, but she has extended family in Texas. Rashmi grew up in a Hindu/spiritual household and has family scattered throughout the US and Canada. Family traditions and recognizing the differences in our cultures are important to us. We love spending time with our families – Stephanie is helping organize a large family reunion on the West Coast next summer.


What Led Us To Adoption

contact

From the beginning of our relationship, we have always known that we wanted to have kids. Stephanie found out in her twenties that she is unable to get pregnant and Rashmee recently discovered that pregnancy through in vitro fertilization would also be tougher than she expected. This was a huge blow to both of us, but it didn’t take us long to determine that adoption was the right path. Stephanie has always wanted to adopt a child, which could be partly due to growing up with a handful of adopted cousins. We strongly believe that our journey has led us here for a reason.
