Sophie and Neemish

OUR PROMISE TO YOU:

We want nothing more than yours and our child to be a happy, healthy human who grows up with every bit of magic that life has to offer. We want them to always know that they are loved with every ounce of our being and that they are equally as loved by their biological family. We will always make sure they have the tools and mindset to achieve anything that they set their mind too. We promise to ALWAYS honour and include you in our life. You are giving us the greatest gift that anyone can give to another person and you will always be a part of our family. We will make sure that they have every opportunity to grow into healthy and happy adults. We promise to always be honest with you and them and to make sure that they know that there is no problem too big or too small that we can not work through as a family. And lastly, we promise to unconditionally love and support them and that they will grow up in a house filled with joy, laughter and most importantly magic.

ABOUT US:

Sophie owns her own ballet school and teaches adults and children the love of dance. Her biggest passion in life is helping children and adults grow. Neemish is a financial advisor but also a successful actor! He has been in Riverdale, Suits, Firefly Lane and many other cool shows!

 

We met in 2018 in an acting class and INSTANTLY fell in love. Sophie never really believed in love at first sight but the moment she met Neemish she just knew she was about to spend the rest of her life with him. Luckily for her, Neemish felt exactly the same way and told our very good friend Kris, who was sat next to him, that he “was going to marry that girl one day”. We then spent every breathing moment together getting to know each other. We really have been inseparable ever since. On our first date Sophie told Neemish that they would be adopting at least 2 of their children, just because she had so so so much love in her heart and knew that she had so much to give to someone who could not be with their birth family. She has known her entire life that this was her plan and nothing in the world would stop her from making it happen. Neemish, who had always wanted to be a dad more than anything in the world, was on board with this plan before she had even finished explaining why. Adoption had also always been in his heart. We then legally got married in 2020 and finally got to celebrate as a family this past Christmas.

 

We are so excited to travel as a family, have game nights, family dinners and just live life to the fullest! The smallest parts of life are the ones that we look forward to the most, we never thought that we would be excited to brush our teeth as a family but we really really are!!!

ABOUT OUR FAMILY:

Being from all over the world, we have the most diverse family one can imagine. Sophie has family who are North African, Indonesian, Indian, European, and Chinese. Her parents live in France, as do two of her siblings, and the rest of her family are in beautiful New Zealand. So these are two places that we will be visiting yearly. Neemish’s parents live in Vancouver and his sister (who is a renowned critical care physician!) lives just a few hours away in Tacoma (USA) . However, he also has family in India, Norway and the US who we often visit. Our family is so important to us, as we are so important to them, so you can be sure that our children will be surrounded by family. When we are not visiting them, they are almost always planning a trip to come see us! And we have two of the most loving sets of parents that you can envision, they can not wait to smother their grand-babies with love! Our family also includes two of the world’s most loving cats: Monkey and Goose. They are so so SOOOOO excited to snuggle with their baby sister or brother. We are also surrounded by the love and support of our chosen family: Sophie’s ballet family and Neemish’s life long friends. They have been the greatest support to us and they could not be more excited to welcome and love our future children.


In our family we LOVE to celebrate and fill our lives with magic. We could not be more excited to share the magic of Christmas, birthdays, halloween, tooth fairies and anything else that you can imagine. But we also can not wait to bring excitement and fairy dust into their everyday lives. Life can be really hard no matter how loved you are, so our family's philosophy is to bring magic to the little things to make it a little easier.

OUR HOME & COMMUNITY:

We are surrounded by the most loving and supportive community. Through creating an inclusive dance school, Sophie found a family of parents, children and adults that are the most welcoming, loving and uplifting human beings.

 

We live in a fantastic area, it is really central to Vancouver, so we have easy access to all of the amazing things that the city has to offer (including some of the best schools!) but it is also insanely close to the mountains. We can not wait to teach them to ski in the winter and to go on hiking adventures in the summer. We are also so excited to travel the world with them and to watch them discover the places that all 4 of their parents are from!

OPENNESS:

We are both the biggest advocates for open adoption. We know that children who have full access to their birth families grow up to be happier, healthier human beings. We also know that a child can never have too much love in their lives, so we would love to have you and your entire family become a part of ours, if that is something you would like. If it is not, we will also completely understand (and we are 100 percent judgement free) but our door will ALWAYS be open if you change your mind. While you are making the hardest decision of your life we just want you to know that we will ALWAYS and FOREVER be here to support and love you. You are and always will be our family.We also know that open adoption is about being honest and open about where they are from and how they came to be in our family. So we are fully committed to always being 100 percent truthful when it comes to their life story. This will be reflected in every aspect of their lives: they will always have a space to be fully open with their emotions and know that there is nothing that we can not talk about as a family, no matter how hard the conversation may be.
