Our Story

We first met in the summer of 2016. There was an immediate chemistry and it became clear very quickly that though we grew up worlds apart, we had shared values and our admiration for each other was undeniable. Deepsha was the first to say I love you and it wasn’t long after Jesse got on one knee inside a blanket fort. We eloped and got married on a beach in Hawaii and celebrated with friends and family when we returned.

Big belly laughs are a regular part of our daily lives together. From the occasional harmless pranks to watching several hours of funny dog videos on YouTube until we caved and got our pup Mowgli, both of us have made it our duty to get the other to giggle. We love to spend our time in the kitchen cooking and sharing a meal together. Food is a shared love of ours and it’s a love that we often share with friends and guests we have in our home.

We face all our challenges together and are a true partnership. Our admiration for each other is undeniable and we’ve worked hard together to develop a healthy give and take. During our courtship, the conversations we shared were both signals to each other that this was something special. Into our marriage, this open and honest communication style has been the foundation we’ve used to grow our relationship.

While we are both highly respected and ambitious professionals, we’ve never lost our inner-kids. We both take our responsibilities seriously, yet we appreciate the brevity of life and want to bring joy into every moment we can.

More About Us:

Meet Deepsha

—as written by Jesse

“When you look Deepsha in the eyes, you get this sense that she knows something you don’t. Then you get to know her and realize how right you were. Deepsha is fiercely humble for someone so bright but what makes her truly spectacular is the heart that drives her. It’s that heart I fell in love with. Where others might jump to judgement, Deepsha is looking at things from every angle, always with empathy and compassion.

Oh and her cooking! Deepsha shows her love with food and let me tell you, who knew love could taste this good. Whether we’re hosting friends and family or it’s just the two of us, Deepsha cooks the type of meals people write songs about. When she’s not cooking or coding, chances are you can find her with a pair of knitting needles in her hand, a hobby she picked up during the pandemic and just one example of many where she has proven to be a person of action. When she sets her mind to something, it’s a guarantee that it will happen. A theme you will see throughout her story.

Her story offers a glimpse of just how truly remarkable she is. Both Deepsha’s parents grew up in India and fought hard to make sure their daughters received quality educations and got better opportunities than they had. Deepsha worked her tail off in school and was always at the top of her class throughout her schooling. She graduated from college with a degree in engineering and masters in chemistry. A couple years after graduating, Deepsha wanted more for herself than what she saw possible in India.

So she immigrated to the United States to carve out the life she wanted. While working towards her masters in business at one of the most prestigious programs in the country, Deepsha got the kind of phone call we all dread. ‘Mom is sick, come home quick.’ She jumped on the next flight and within 24 hours of landing, she was in surgery, giving a piece of her liver to save her mom’s life. There isn’t a thing Deepsha wouldn’t do for her family. One of the many reasons I can’t wait to grow with her as a parent.

Both my mother-in-law and Deepsha fully recovered. She finished her master’s program and went on to have a very successful career in the tech industry. As a woman of color in a male dominated industry, Deepsha makes it a point to not only break barriers for herself but carve pathways for the women that follow. There’s no doubt the kind of role model she’ll be for the child we adopt. After all, she’s already mine.”

Deepsha is fiercely humble for someone so bright but what makes her truly spectacular is the heart that drives her.”

Meet Jesse

—as written by Deepsha

“Writing about Jesse in a few words cannot do justice to one of the most kind-hearted and patient person I have had the good fortune of loving and learning from. He is an amazing listener and everybody he meets feels loved and touched by him as he genuinely tries to learn about them. This ability to make someone feel heard and valued will make him an amazingly empathetic father. I have seen my niece and nephew fall in love with him since they met him, and he returns that affection with all of his heart. 

Before Jesse and I met, he walked the Camino de Santiago — a 500-mile journey from Southern France to Western Spain. This speaks to his sense of adventure and perseverance that he brings to whatever he does in life, and what I fell in love with. Through the tired days and shin splints, this spiritual journey that Jesse undertook helped him understand the value of community and the importance of learning about life by living it to the fullest. 

Jesse finds his spirituality within nature and he has welcomed me to share this love with him. He introduced me to camping in the Pacific Northwest and it’s now an integral part of our lives. Soon after dating I came down with over 104 fever, and even though Jesse had only recently met me, he took care of me at my worst. I knew then he is the most reliable and kind person — and he has only continued to show up more each day during the last five years of our marriage. I trust he will be a truly supportive father a child can lean on through happy and hard times. 

Jesse is driven by his passion and love for the community. He has strong family values and shares a very touching tradition with his father to go to a baseball game every year. His kindness and love for uplifting the community have led him to work in foster care and youth education non-profits through most of his career. He is extremely empathetic with kids and provides space to share emotions and vulnerabilities. I believe he will similarly create space as a father and the joy of seeing him nurture a child is one I look forward to sharing with him.

Jesse’s laughter is loud, contagious, and full of genuine joy and he makes sure each day that our home is filled with it.”

Jesse will be a truly supportive father a child can lean on through happy and hard times.”

Our Home

We live in Seattle, Washington with the beautiful backdrop of the Pacific Northwest. Deepsha moved here after she fell in love visiting for a summer internship and Jesse has lived in the area for most his life. While our famous rain is really more of a drizzle, the luscious greenery and snowcapped mountains surrounding the city make it all worth it. Whether it’s the Chief Sealth Trail a block from our home or the world famous PCT less than an hour away, hiking is always nearby and one of our favorite ways to spend a weekend.

When we’re not outdoors hiking or camping, we love exploring restaurants, listening to live music, and enjoying many of the festivals the city has to offer. Right before the pandemic, we found the home we knew we wanted to start a family with; a three bedroom with a big kitchen where we could cook together and a backyard for Mowgli.

The neighborhood is extremely diverse and nearby there are several parks and community gardens, a library, and a day care — all in walking distance.

Our Area (Seattle, WA):

Our Family & Friends

We have the family we’re born into and the family we chose, both could not be more supportive of our decision to grow our family through adoption. The child we adopt will be surrounded by a safe community who loves them. Friends and family are two things we value more than anything. From sharing joy to having shoulders to cry on, we count ourselves incredibly lucky to have the families we do.

We video chat with Deepsha’s parents almost every day and try to make it to India for a visit at least once a year. Her sister Shilpa lives with her husband Lalit with our niece and nephew — Laksh (10) and Chiya (8). Throughout the pandemic, Laksh and Jesse would keep each other entertained playing online video games together while Chiya has taught Deepsha how to make digital art with one of her favorite softwares.

Jesse’s parents recently moved back to Washington state in preparation for the adoption. They were living with his sister Micaela near San Diego, California and we would regularly visit them to celebrate Christmas and other family events. Micaela is staying in southern California giving the whole family a nice sunny place to visit in the winter months.

What our BFFs have to say about us:

Spending a day at the park with our close friends Katherine, Sean, and our godson Ben

I’ve known Jesse for half his life and I’ve known Deepsha’s heart for years.  I trust them unconditionally and they are on my list of folks who my kid would go to if I and my husband were to pass. They both have taken the role of godparents to my child since before he was born. The child they adopt will never live a moment without the firm knowledge that they are loved, wanted, safe, and they belong.”

Deepsha and Jesse are a great combination of smarts, thoughtfulness, love, kindness, generosity, and family values that would make them great parents. They are full of fun and laughter, an important ingredient of any household, especially with little kids. Since we were pregnant with our daughter Victoria, Deepsha and Jesse have been a tremendous physical and emotional help. They have become our family away from home.”

At our one of many long weekend trips with our close friends Chris and Beth Anne

Laughter is their love language. We’ve yet to spend time with Jesse and Deepsha where we don’t walk away with bellies sore from laughing so hard it hurts. In life, there will be trials and challenges. Some are small, while others large; some within your control, while others not. We’ve seen those days when Deepsha & Jesse face these challenges. Their ability to support each other, even when the ‘going gets tough’ is what gives us confidence that they can take on the unexpected hurdles of parenthood.”

Meet Mowgli

—as written by Mowgli

“I am four years old, so basically a teenager. If you see my naughty smile licking my lips end to end, it probably means I got into some cheese that I shouldn’t have. I also know you will immediately forgive me because of my adorable eyes and innocent face. I love my mom and dad because they take me out to play with my beloved ball, anytime I stand by the door, they get the signal. I am a bit shy and act hard to get but within five minutes I will fall in love with any human and then they won’t be able to resist my snuggles and charm. I especially love my toddler cousins the most because whenever they are over they keep dropping crumbs everywhere for me and I keep them entertained with fetch.”

–Mowgli

How We Want to Raise a Child

We wanted to give you a window into how we would raise a child. Most importantly, we believe childhood should be magical. It should be filled with fun, adventure, creativity, and play. We want the child we adopt to be given every opportunity to experience and explore new passions through summer camps, music lessons, sports practice or whatever speaks to their energy and soul.

Both of us are life learners who really value the power of education in all its forms. We want to feed the curiosity of the child we adopt through school, conversation, travel, and all the different ways a person can learn.

While we both grew up in different religions, as adults we share a spirituality rooted in love, nature, and cultural traditions that center around family and community. We want to encourage the child we adopt to ask the hard questions about life, religion, and spirituality while giving them the space they need to chart their own path.

As an interracial couple living in a multicultural community, it is important for us to teach the child to celebrate the differences in everyone and most importantly — themselves.

Our goal as parents would be to raise the child we adopt into an empowered adult. No matter the age, we believe a child is a human being who should be treated with respect and nurtured in an environment where they can feel heard, seen, and loved. We know that they will encounter challenges along their journey. Challenges where all we can do as parents is trust that we’ve given them the confidence, tools, and support they need to face it and come out stronger.
