Thank you so much for taking the time to read about me and for considering me to parent your child. I am deeply honored and humbled that you are considering me for this extraordinary opportunity. I cannot begin to fully understand what emotions you are dealing with right now, but I do believe that adoption must be one of the hardest decisions to make. I want to thank you for considering adoption for your baby.
I want you to know that if you choose me to parent your child, he or she will grow up in an extremely loving family. Your child will be supported and loved throughout his or her life. I want you to feel comfortable and confident in your decision. Your child will grow up knowing of your sacrifice, courage, and strength.
Adoption is not new to my family. My aunt and uncle adopted my cousin when she was a newborn. She made their family complete. My cousin works as a nurse and she inspired me to become a nurse. So, it’s fair to say that without my cousin in my life, I may not be doing what I do.
So, again, thank you for learning a little bit about me and for considering me to parent your child. If chosen, I promise to be the best parent I can possibly be.
I am a fun, loving, hard-working, adventurous, and loyal single woman in my 40s. I am a registered nurse at a local hospital and I love my job. I love taking care of my patients and seeing them get better. I also love almost all things Disney and I visit the Disney theme parks as often as I can.
In my free time, I love to travel, spend time with my family and friends, listen to and play music, play games, be outside (especially at the beach), read, attend musical theater productions, go to concerts, cook, and spend time with my best friend’s son. I am his “Auntie.” I also love to go camping and I can’t wait to introduce my expanding family to the beauty of places such as Yosemite National Park and Lake Tahoe.
I was lucky enough to purchase my home in 2010, and I love it. I live in a three-bedroom, two-bathroom house with my orange tabby cat named Chance. My neighborhood is very safe and family-friendly. The neighborhood kids are always playing and having fun outside. There are three parks nearby, along with great schools. There are wonderful walking trails very close to my house. There are other wonderful parks, beaches, amusement parks, sporting events, museums, zoos, and aquariums nearby.
My Extended Family
I am very close to my family. I live about 10 minutes away from my parents and I see them often. They are extremely excited about becoming grandparents. My brother lives in another state, but we still stay close through phone calls, email, text, and social media. I have several aunts, uncles, and cousins with whom I am very close. Some live about 15 minutes away from me and we see each other often. We all play Bunco together every month.
We get together for all the holidays, as well as the random barbecue. One of my favorite memories is of Christmas. My cousins and I would get matching pajamas to wear on Christmas Eve. My mom always got my brother and me each our own Christmas ornament every year. I look forward to continuing these traditions as a mom.
The rest of my family is all spread out across the country, but we are all connected on social media and we text each other frequently. I also have some very close friends and we consider each other family. My best friend and her family live about two blocks away from me and we get together often for dinner and games.
What Led Me To Adoption
I always knew I wanted to be a mom, but I have not found the right partner for me. I went through a few years of failed fertility treatments and, with the support of my family and friends, I decided it was time to move forward with adoption. Growing a family through adoption is not new to my family. I mentioned before that my aunt and uncle adopted my cousin as a newborn. I am excited to start my family in this very special manner. My parents are very excited about becoming grandparents. In fact, my mom is a knitter and she has already made a couple of sweaters and hats for the baby. My brother and friends also can’t wait to welcome a baby and become aunties and uncles.
