dear expectant mother

Finding the words that describe the deep respect I have for you in this moment is beyond my reach, but please know that you will always be the hero of this story. Your child will grow up knowing that both their biological and adoptive mothers love them unconditionally. I won’t take this responsibility lightly and commit to providing a home full of love and adoration. If you decide I’m the right person to parent your child, I understand that you’re trusting me with the most important job in the world – raising a kind and caring soul. Your child is my number one priority. I feel very fortunate to have a set of life experiences that have prepared me for this next step. There is so much to experience in this world and I look forward to providing an adventurous, consistent, devoted and cherished life for your child. As challenges arise, we will face them together every step of the way. I rely on my faith daily and will provide a faith-based foundation to grow from as a family. Although I am an aspiring single parent, my support network is strong, and ready to share the love we have. I am far from perfect, but I commit to providing a home filled with warmth and love, centered on your child. I cannot thank you enough for considering me in your decision.

Finding the words that describe the deep respect I have for you in this moment is beyond my reach, but please know that you will always be the hero of this story.

About Me

I’m a strong, compassionate, and reliable woman from your typical small-town, who has had the opportunity to live all over the country. I’m a soon-to-be retired military officer who joined the Army because I was looking for both a challenge and adventure. Joining the Army helped to build a career as well as find purpose. I’ve traveled the world, learned the value of different cultures, and devoted myself to service and people. I love to read, historical fiction is my personal favorite, but I’m always looking for ways to get outside too! I’ll try any sport or game, and enjoy exploring new places. My mom taught my sister and me how to cross-stitch when we were kids, and it’s become a lifelong hobby that allows me to create personalized gifts for friends and family. My absolute favorite thing to do is spend time with the people I love, and I intentionally build my days around these moments.

My Home

I’ve had the enriching experience of living in several states, and am now settled in a three bedroom, three-bath home in a family-friendly and lively neighborhood. There are three parks within walking distance; two have water play areas. Local festivals, farmer’s markets, museums, and historical site visits fill my weekends! The city is culturally diverse and offers friendships with people from unique backgrounds. My town is home to the number one ranked elementary school in the state, and offers an abundance of educational opportunities in addition to numerous extracurricular activities. I also own a second home near the coast and travel there as often as possible. Family and friends meet there often to slow down, enjoy the beach and spend time with each other!

My Extended Family

My career has kept me close to home, allowing me to be present for the big moments, and even more importantly, the small. I’m the youngest of three siblings that I consider my best friends. We share a supportive and sarcastic bond and puts family first - always. I also have large extended families on both my mother and father’s sides. We carry on my parent’s tradition of hosting Thanksgiving every year for not just family, but anyone looking for a place to go. Another tradition is the road trip to my Grandmother’s on December 26th. We’ve never missed a year! More than 40 of us come from wherever we are in the world to spend time together and make memories. My favorite tradition is one I take wherever I go; Sunday family dinner. Sunday afternoons are for slowing down, preparing a meal that’s good for your soul and spending time with those you love. My family and friends cannot wait to welcome a new addition to the table and into our hearts!

What Led Me To Adoption

I’ve wanted to adopt for as long as I can remember and have always felt that I would receive this gift when the timing was right. I’m lucky to be surrounded by a circle of friends and family who cannot wait to be a part of your child’s life. My role models prove daily that every family is unique, and when love is the foundation, a family is perfect! My closest friend was adopted and we often discuss her family’s journey. She is now close with her biological family, and it’s inspiring to watch their relationships grow. Her story helps to build understanding that I believe will be insightful during my own adoption journey.
