To this day she remembers her friend's courage and selfless love. We’ve always known that open adoption is right for us. We are totally dedicated to providing a loving home to our child, a home filled with laughter and happiness. We promise that you'll always have an important place in our heart, and we welcome a lifelong relationship. Thank you for taking the time to read a little bit about us.

About Imran, by Marisa

Imran is an amazing person and I feel very lucky to have him in my life. He is thoughtful, loving, and fun to be around, and he treats me with the utmost care and respect. When I see him play with, comfort, and read to our nephews, I can imagine him showing the same love and tenderness to our child. Imran teaches at an elementary school and looks forward to going to his class each day. His patient and caring nature come in handy in the classroom, and there is nothing else in the world that he would rather do than help kids learn. His summers off are a definite bonus and will mean lots of opportunities for extended family vacations together.

Our Home and Community

We live in San Ramon, California, nestled in the east San Francisco Bay Area. There are many great parks and trails within a short walk from our home and our neighborhood is surrounded by beautiful rolling hills that are perfect for family strolls and picnics. We can picture snuggling up with our little one in front of our fireplace during colder nights and enjoying freshly-baked homemade cookies. In the summertime there are sure to be plenty of family fun days at the community pool with all of us splashing and laughing together. Our friendly neighbors include lots of families with young children. You can see kids riding on tricycles, playing soccer, or just chasing each other around. We know our child will have a blast joining in these activities. Our group of neighbors will often set up tents and games for all the kids to enjoy and our neighborhood is always filled with a lot of laughter.
