Keith on Angie:
Angie is witty, animated and fun to be with. Angie will be an incredible mother because I have seen her with children and she is a natural. She knows how to engage a child and how to win their trust. She is great at reading to them, playing board/card games and indulging in pretend play with the kids, especially with her niece and nephew. So they pretend one day that they are on a plane, the next day at the beach and before you know, they are planning a tea party. Children in turn, adore her.
The great thing about her is that she is a well-rounded person. She is organized, responsible, and easy going. I know that she will be an amazing mother to your child.
Angie on Keith:
Keith is warm and caring. We were colleagues to begin with and our friendship blossomed into love eventually.
He will be a hands-on dad as he will instill the spirit of adventure and sports into your child. He loves to watch NBA playoffs, NFL, tennis and soccer. He loves to play racquetball and golf. He is always ready to go to the park and play Frisbee or just catch with my nephew.
Keith’s mother was an amazing artist and I can see in the way Keith draws for my nephew and our friend’s kids that he has an inner talent.
He is fun-loving and a true friend. He will be a doting father, teaching a lot of new activities to your child.
* I love Ice Cream
* I love the outdoors and I swim, hike, bicycle and more
* I love watching National Geographic and similar TV channels. I can’t wait to watch Animal Planet with your child
* I grew up watching Tom & Jerry and love to share this with your child

* I grew up building model air planes with my dad and would love to share this with your child
Keith: I am a Program Director managing huge IT programs in companies. I have a dual Masters degree, one in Economics and another in Business Administration.
Education is important to me but I am also a firm believer of the saying that all work and no play makes one quite dull. My profession provides good savings potential to ensure quality education for your child.
My work is remote so I usually work from home and travel once or twice a month for about 2-3 days. It is important for me to be present for doctor’s appointments, school events, soccer games or jazz events and the various growth events and achievements. My family will be my priority.
Angie: I am a Digital Marketing Strategist and consult for many companies. I love my job as it helps me stay connected with technology and people. I have the flexibility to work from home and have very limited travel.
Although I am looking at continuing to work full time I will do what it takes, even if it means that I have to cut back on the hours or even be a stay-at-home mom.
My priority is to start a family, make my home safe and nurturing for your child. I firmly believe that bonding is essential in the initial years to make a child strong and confident to face the future. I am prepared to take necessary steps to ensure I give my 100% to your child.
Our home is in a safe neighborhood close to the area Park, Library and school. Evenings, one can see the kids out bicycling and walking their pets.
We have a nice yard with plenty of space for a child to play or run after the birds. We have oranges and grapefruits growing in our backyard. We also have basil with which we make our own pesto sauce. We can’t wait to start a small vegetable garden along with your child.
Holidays and Festivals
We enjoy festivals and holidays and celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas with Angie’s brother and friends. We also celebrate Indian festivals, especially Diwali (Festival of lights) and get-together with friends. Lots of good food, decorating our home, music, friends and family are the main ways we celebrate. Lastly, we make sure we buy lots of gifts for our niece and nephew for Christmas.
Birthday celebrations are also big. However, we don’t need a excuse to throw a party ! We love to spend time with our friends and family.
We Love to Travel
We love to travel and usually take 2-3 trips a year. Our favorite this year has been Lake Tahoe and Half Moon Bay. We love sailing, going to the museums, lazing in the beach and we can’t wait to build sand castles with your child.
Angie has a Masters in Travel and Hospitality Management, her initial years of work life took her all over the world. Keith lived in Australia and got his Master’s in Business Administration. Between the two of us we have traveled to Europe, South Africa, South East Asia, Australia & North America which has helped us to broaden our horizons, respect and appreciate different cultures and its people.
We also go to India to meet with Angie’s mother. This will be an excellent opportunity for your child to bond with our extended family and grandma and learn about various cultures.
Last, but certainly, not least we can’t wait to go to SeaWorld, Disneyworld and other theme parks with your child.
I come from a small family, just mom, dad, me and my brother. My father traveled a lot and through him we were exposed to different cultures. My older brother moved to the US for higher education.
I was just a teenager when I first visited the U.S. I came to visit my brother and ever since I always wanted to come and live here. My brother still lives here too and is married to an American girl! My sister-in-law is caring , friendly and a great addition to our family.
My mother speaks English fluently and is eagerly waiting for another grandchild to play with. My niece and nephew are also waiting for a cousin with whom they can share their interests. My nephew loves Star Wars and Legos and my niece loves music and movies. We usually see them two-three times in a year and especially during the Holidays.
I come from a large family with two older brothers and an older sister. Everyone dotes on me as I am the youngest.
I was blessed with parents who were knowledgeable about the world they lived in and not just India.
My older sister got married and moved to the US when I was a just a teenager and that made me want to come here as well.
I have one niece and five nephews and although they all are young adults now they all are waiting for a cousin on whom they can dote on.
