Thank you for taking the time to read and consider my profile. I can only imagine the emotions you must be facing, finding a loving family to adopt your baby. Although I don’t know you yet, I admire your loving, selfless, courageous, and trusting nature that has led you to consider adoption.
If you choose me, I look forward to connecting with you and walking on this journey together. Our love for your child will be at the center. I hope that as you continue reading, you will see that my heart is full of love, and I would be honored, and humbled, to share my love with your child.
I am excited to embark on the journey of motherhood. I know that the triumphs and struggles will surely come, and through it all I commit to you that I will strive to raise a thoughtful, kind, loving, passionate, well-traveled, respectful, and joyful child. I can promise that your child will be loved unconditionally, not only by me but by my amazing family as well. I can promise you that your child will be surrounded by love, laughter, and a family forever grateful.
Again, I thank you for considering me as a prospective mom and I eagerly hope to meet you and share in your adoption journey.
I like to think of myself as a loving, fun, and adventurous woman. I love being a kindergarten teacher at a 4K-eighth-grade public school. I selected a profession where I am surrounded by the curiosity, kindness, and genuineness of children every day. It inspires me to be a better person. I have taught in the states for four years and have also taught in Brazil for three years.
I adore traveling and try to travel as often as possible. I feel like I learn so much from each new country I visit, and I appreciate all the wonderful experiences I have had abroad.
I also enjoy cooking! My family is full of outstanding cooks and although I’m not quite at their level yet, I love to try and experiment.
Family and friends are at the center of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
I live in a four-bedroom house in a beautiful suburban neighborhood. We are within walking distance to quiet trails and adorable parks. Being just outside of the city, we enjoy frequently seeing deer, foxes, and even wild turkeys! We are less than a ten-minute drive from the city, so we are close enough to enjoy museums, sporting events, and concerts. Our yard is always full, as all of us love being outside, working in the garden, barbecuing, or just kicking a ball around for the dog. Which leads me to introduce our nine-year-old Old English Sheepdog, Poko. He loves tummy scratches and he’s excited about the opportunity of another family member to love on!
My Extended Family
I grew up in Wisconsin and am lucky to have half of my family in this state with me. The other half of my family primarily lives on a Pacific island called Samoa. I feel so lucky to have a mixed heritage and I am grateful for all that it has taught me.
I value my roots immensely and truly believe they have played a large part in making me who I am today. If you choose me as your child’s adoptive parent, I want to honor your love for your child. I will always do my best to celebrate your child’s roots. I will connect your child to his or her history. I will share your story and the profound love that you’ve shown as you made your adoption plan.
Raising a child enveloped by family is important to me; and, as a single female, I knew I had to be thoughtful about this, and so I chose to live with my Mom and Dad. Culturally, extended family living together is typical and has proven such a blessing for our family. I’m excited and very fortunate to raise a child under the same roof as my Mom and Dad. Our family is so truly full of love we know that by growing even more, our love will only multiply.
What Led Me To Adoption
As long as I can remember I’ve always felt the pull toward adoption. The question was never “if” I would adopt, but “when.”
I have learned so much working with children and have felt so much fulfillment in sharing precious moments in their childhood. I would love the opportunity to provide a foundation for a child, not just as an additional caregiver, but as a parent, as a person who is there 24/7. I would love to be present at all events, and for all successes and adventures. I want to provide safety and security for a child, as well as a profound love that encourages him or her to grow and succeed in life. I feel so privileged to have the opportunity to grow my family through adoption and to have the chance to be a mom.
