Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for taking the time to get to know me. I understand it may be an emotional and confusing time as you consider the best option for your precious little one. I admire your strength, love, trust, and selflessness, and I hope that you feel supported and loved no matter where you are in your journey.
Parenting your child would be the greatest blessing of my life, and each day I would be extremely grateful to you. I promise your child will be loved, well traveled, supported, and provided a safe, happy home filled with every opportunity possible. I will encourage creativity as we experiment with different projects and an adventurous spirit as we explore the world. I will pass on my famous zucchini bread recipe and my active nature and will honor the traditions of family dinner and game nights. I know your baby will bring great joy and happiness to me but also to my family, who will surround him or her with love and laughter.
Please know you are covered in prayer and well wishes by someone you’ve never met and who would be beyond blessed to meet you and your little one. Thank you again for your consideration.
I am light-hearted and very compassionate, often putting other’s needs before my own, and I love a good joke. I tend to listen more than I speak, but my closest friends might say I never quit talking. I have often been labeled the peacemaker for my ability to find common ground with just about anyone and to help others do the same when needed. I grew up in a small Kansas town, and although there truly is “no place like home,” I knew a more diverse community was for me when I went to college. For the past seven years, I have been a Director of Operations at a great company. I have many interests and also hit the gym a few times a week. I love to travel, garden, hike, read, bake, and play board games and sports. I am definitely a DIY person and have made or repurposed many of the decorations in my house.
My home sits on a quiet street in a well-established neighborhood about 15 minutes from the downtown of a major city. There are several parks, restaurants, pools, a zoo, museums, and movie theaters nearby. There is even a great elementary school at the end of my block! My neighbors are extremely friendly; in fact, we have a neighborhood block party every year to celebrate our little community. I share my home with my pup, Thatcher, whom I rescued from a shelter five years ago. He’s a Labrador-border collie mix and the most loyal, loving, playful, and dopey dog out there. The neighborhood is a great place for a walk, and Thatcher and I enjoy one almost daily.
My Extended Family
I grew up in a fun-loving and supportive family. I consider myself very lucky because my older brother and my younger sister are also my best friends. My brother, his wife, and their kids, as well as my parents, do not live in the same state as I do, but we are all within driving distance and visit one another as often as possible. My sister lives about two miles from me, and we see each other almost daily. My mom is one of six kids and my dad one of three, so I have a lot of cousins. My parents are both happily remarried, and I even have four step-brothers and a step-sister.
My immediate family has many traditions, including epic game nights, making cookies, taking vacations together, and holiday gatherings. Sports are also a common family activity, and I am still the reigning “horse” champion in basketball. Additionally, my entire extended family gets together for a reunion every couple of years. One of my favorite traditions growing up was dinner together every night at the table, and this is one I plan to continue. Everyone in my family, as well as my friends, is extremely excited about and supportive of my adoption journey.
What Led Me To Adoption
I have wanted to be a mother for as long as I can remember. I always thought I would adopt at some point, most likely after having children traditionally through marriage. That dream has yet to unfold, but my desire to be a mom and the love I have to give remain constant. My aunt and uncle on my dad’s side internationally adopted two children, and my uncle on my mom’s side also adopted, adding three cousins to my family. I have seen first-hand the wonderful gift of adoption and know that love truly makes a family.
