Family Type: Single
State I live in: California

dear expectant mother

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me. I can’t even begin to know what you are going through, and I am sending you nothing but peace, love, and prayers. I know this is not easy for you, and I can only say, should you choose me to raise your child, you can rest assured they will have the most loving, nurturing, kind, compassionate, and patient mother they could ever wish for.

The moment I decided I would move forward with adopting a child, I knew deep down that this was meant to be.  So many people put off having children because they feel they aren’t ready.  While I know this will rock my world, I honestly believe I am ready for this. I feel being a mother is my destiny, and over the past few years, everything has fallen into place to prepare my life for sharing it with a child.

 Finally, I want you to know that I completely respect and admire your strength and the trust you are about to place in someone you haven’t met. Hopefully, by learning a bit about me, the decision might not seem as daunting. Whatever decision you make, I thank you for taking the time to read my profile and send many blessings that everything goes as smoothly as possible for you.

I feel being a mother is my destiny, and over the past few years, everything has fallen into place to prepare my life for sharing it with a child.

About Me

I am a single woman living in California, and I just wrapped up a 16-year career at a well-known Internet company. I enjoy the fact that I’m semi-retired right now, even though I am always looking for the next opportunity. I enjoy living life to the fullest. That involves spending time with friends and family, venturing into the great outdoors to hike at local parks or go to the beach, watching movies, going to restaurants or museums, watching sports (especially the SF Giants!), or just staying home and nesting. I enjoy puzzles, games of all sorts (video and board games) and particularly love seeing kids’ flicks like Pixar, Disney, and DreamWorks.

My Home

I recently moved away from San Francisco after 25 years to a town about an hour away in order to be closer to my parents so I can help them out more as they’re growing older. It’s a very quiet and safe area with lots of farmland still being developed and plenty of cool wildlife to see. I live near several schools that are considered to be some of the best in the state. Because the cost of living is so much less here than in the Bay area, I managed to sell my tiny SF home and buy a house three times larger for a fraction of the cost! I share my home with two cats: Babes, who is almost 12, and Dexter, who is about 10. They’re both very sweet and loving.

My Extended Family

I am extremely close to my family, both immediate and extended. I also consider my group of friends to be family as I have known them for almost 30 years. My father worked as a rocket scientist (yes, really!), and he designed missiles for Lockheed his entire career. My mom stayed at home until I was in 4th grade then began working as a facilitator at the same company. As a family, we strongly believe in education, financial independence, being open-minded, and treating others with respect and compassion.

I speak with my parents almost every day, and we try to have family dinner at least once per week.  I have one older sister, who is also single. I have many aunts, uncles, and cousins, and every few years we try to have some sort of family reunion. We are all incredibly close, and my mom and dad are eager to be grandparents!

What Led Me To Adoption

I have always known that I wanted children. My friends and family keep telling me how great a mom I would make, and so I am turning to adoption to fulfill my dream of raising a child. A few years ago I made several attempts on my own to start a family with fertility treatments, none of which were successful.  I think at this time in my life, the opportunity to try that path again has passed, and I have opened my heart to adoption to complete my family. I truly feel it is my destiny.
