Vanita Thomas

Vanita Thomas is the privileged, beloved, adopted daughter of the God of the universe who has been chosen to inherit the riches of His glory one day! She is Peter's wife, mother of Sandeep, Sneha Ruth and Sarah Rachna and the mother-in-love of Shirley. She was an Engineer and Information Specialist who chose to step out of her career in order to be dedicated to the harder task of looking after her beloved children when they began their adoption journey 19 years ago. God's call on her life to be an adoptive mom has been the most beautiful calling but has also been an extremely hard marathon. She was also privileged to have a biological daughter who is her baby girl. She blogs about her joys and sorrows on this journey where she knows she stands only by the grace of God! Peter and Vanita hope to celebrate their 25th anniversary this year by God's grace. "To endure the cross is not tragedy; suffering is the fruit of an exclusive allegiance to Jesus Christ." - Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Sandeep Thomas

Sandeep Thomas is married to to his beautiful bride Shirley who is the love of his life. God brought them together from the ends of the earth in an amazing way. Years ago he faced horrible tragedy and trauma as a young child in India, and seemed destined for a life of poverty and despair. However, in the providence of God he was adopted at age 6. and this dramatically changed the course of his life. By adopting him and relinquishing their hopes and dreams, his parents mirrored what Christ did for them in coming down to save and adopt them into His own family. He predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will... (Ephesians 1:5).. The trauma he went through not only affected him, but his parents as well. He was very rebellious, angry and felt that he was not loved by his own family. After 11 years of failure, hardship, and many struggles, Sandeep surrendered his life to Jesus and was transformed from the inside by the grace of God. Today a UW graduate, he is a national speaker who raises awareness of adoption and virtual education and works as a Service Manager in Wells Fargo. His passion is to help adoptees and adoptive or foster parents find their hope in Jesus through his life story.

Peter Thomas

currently lives with his wife Vanita and his children in Redmond, WA. Having completed a doctorate in Theoretical Physics in TIFR , India, his family moved to New York/New Jersey, and lived there for almost 10 years. They adopted their two older children Sandeep and Ruth Sneha in 1998. They then made another major move across the country to Redmond, Washington in 2003, because Peter's hectic work schedule prevented him from being able to spend the time he needed with his family. Their youngest daughter Sarah Rachna was born a year after this move. Looking back at the many ups and downs of their life, Peter can clearly trace the faithful, gracious, and relentlessly loving hand of God, leading and guiding him and his family, and also gently disciplining and restoring him every time he wandered away. His son Sandeep was recently married to Shirley, and they live nearby. Having experienced the thrill of knowing God first hand, Peter enjoys sharing about this amazing experience with others. He and Vanita also passionately believe that adoption is very close to the heart of God, because it is a powerful reflection of how God Himself brings all who put their trust in Jesus into His own family, on the basis of Jesus' death and glorious resurrection. As the Bible says: ... to all who received Him, who believed in his Name, He gave the right to become children of God (John 1:12).
