Dear Expectant Mother,
First of all, thank you so much for sharing this most private moment in your life with me. I can only imagine how emotionally challenging this time must be for you. I admire your love and courage, which are so evident in your selfless decision to consider adoption. I want you to know that adoption has personally touched my life in many ways through the experiences of both my mom and several friends who have adopted.
I can promise you that our home will be filled with love and laughter and that you will always have a place in our hearts. Your selfless gift to my family will never be forgotten. I understand that you must have so many things on your mind at this time, and I am committed to supporting you fully every step of the way on your journey.
I am a really positive, outgoing, and caring woman who enjoys a life filled with love for family, friends, and the students I teach every day. I get great pleasure from my professional life as a dance teacher working with students in grades pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade. My true passion lies in ensuring the social and emotional well-being of each of my students. It is so important to me that each child feels special, safe, and, most importantly, loved. I make every effort to maintain a strong network of positive and energetic people. The very strong bonds I have with my parents and siblings is the true foundation of my life.
I live in a family-friendly community of new (2018) single-story, two-bedroom rental homes in a neighborhood that is surrounded by parks and recreational centers that provide opportunities for many fun indoor and outdoor activities. My neighbors are friendly and span all age groups. My dog Jamison and I enjoy long walks in this safe and beautifully landscaped neighborhood. Many museums, zoos, and other fun places to explore are not far from my home.
My Extended Family
My extended family consists of my mother (a retired social worker) and father (a practicing primary care doctor) as well as two brothers and a sister, who lives only a few minutes from me. My family remains the strongest support system I have. We spend a week together each summer in Northern Michigan, and I cannot wait to share this incredible family time with my own child someday.
My family home in the Midwest area, just a five-hour drive from where I live now, has been the gathering spot for my extended family for celebrating all holidays and birthdays. My aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews all love gathering there. “The more, the merrier” has always been my mom’s philosophy. My parents, my brothers Jack and Mike, and especially my sister, Lynn, have been so supportive during my struggles over the last several years to establish my own family. They are all so excited to hopefully one day welcome a new member into our family.
What Led Me To Adoption
This exciting decision in my life has been a long time in the making. I have always known that I wanted to be a mother, but I was not sure what that journey to motherhood would like for me. After many years of teaching and caring for other’s children, I knew it was time to establish a family of my own. My mother was adopted as an infant into a family that gave her so much love and support. I have learned through many heartfelt conversations over the years with my mom about some of the best ways that I might help my adopted child develop a healthy and mature attitude as he or she grows.
