Dear Expectant Mother,
You must have a thousand things going through your mind right now as you try to determine if adoption is the right path for you and your child. Whatever decision you make comes from a place of not only strength, but love, and love is a common thread we will share if you choose me to become the mother of your child. I will always remind your child they are lucky enough to be loved by two moms.
I promise I will shower your child with love and care. I will raise your child to be kind, honest, caring, compassionate, courteous, and hardworking, all things that my parents instilled in me. I will share my family traditions with them, such as an annual trip to the beach, reading together, and family movie night. I will build new traditions along the way and we will create and tackle bucket lists together.
I wish you the best on this journey and thank you for taking the time to read about me and for considering me as the mom for your beautiful child.
My goal is to live life to the fullest. To accomplish this, I created an annual bucket list, and some of the things I have done are hiking at state parks with my mom and our dogs, exploring new cities, visiting museums, and learning family recipes. When I’m not doing things on the list, you will find me baking, taking my dog to park, watching movies, and trying photography. Though I love to have fun, I do have to work, too: I am a worker safety and health professional at a research laboratory. When I describe my job, I usually say I am a “mom to researchers,” because I listen to their problems, help them stay safe, and tell them when they cannot do something that would be unsafe. What I love about my job is that I am constantly learning about a wide variety of topics, from biology to computers.
I own a beautiful three-bedroom home that I share with my golden retriever, Lucy. It's filled with plenty of room to play, both inside and out, and it has the perfect dining room for family dinners and a nice kitchen to bake my favorite snickerdoodle cookies. In my neighborhood, there is a mix of families raising kids, retired couples, and young couples, so you can always find great people willing to give you a hand. There are also several neighborhood parks nearby that have great swings and slides. If not out walking with Lucy on the great neighborhood sidewalks, you will find us in the backyard, where she plays in her pool while I garden.
My Extended Family
My core family is me, my mom, and my big brother. The three us were a team when I was younger: we did everything together, from playing sports like soccer to cooking dinner. When I look back upon my fondest memories as a kid, I would say I always loved Saturday mornings on the sofa with blankets, reading books with my mom and brother. It always ended up in a tickle fight, but you could never tickle the mama! I would love to share this with a child. I am fortunate to have my mom close to me now, and my brother is just an airplane flight away.
Beyond my mom and brother, I am fortunate to have family scattered throughout the country, and we support each other’s milestones through visits and social media. I cannot wait to introduce them to a new member, who I know will be well loved.
Though I do not see my extended family as much as I would like, I am fortunate to be able to call my friends members of my family, as well. They have been there for me for good and hard times, proving it does not take blood to make a family.
What Led Me To Adoption
There is a point in your life when you find something is missing and you need to do something about it. I have always wanted to be a mom and was never quite sure how that would happen for me. A few years ago, I started looking for answers with my doctor to determine if I could carry a child on my own. Several medical tests and a surgery later, childbirth was just not in the cards for me. Adoption was always in the back of my mind, and when I found that having a biological child was not possible, I knew it was time to finally pursue adoption.
