Dear Expectant Mother,
I cannot imagine the immeasurable amount of courage it takes to consider adoption, and I hope in some way I can ease your pain and heartache and help you with your journey. I am forever grateful to you, if that can be of comfort. Your gift brings me so much hope and excitement, endless wishes and dreams come true.
Rest assured, I want the same as you. I want the best for your baby. I promise to always provide all the needs of your baby and to always provide a safe home, one filled with love and acceptance, trust and laughter. It will be a place to enjoy growing and learning, exploring and discovering.
I will encourage your baby to grow into a beautiful, thoughtful, caring human being.
Though we haven’t met yet, I promise to remain thoughtful, open, patient and respectful of your own journey. It’s truly an honor to be able to meet a birthmother this way, so we can help each other with the transition. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I am described as a kind, honest, integral adventurer. I love walks in the country, pretty views, and all animals. I’m originally from England but have lived in the U.S. for over 16 years. I started working as a production assistant in the film industry and now enjoy a career as a production manager. I lived in New York for ten good years before moving to Northern California, where I enjoy a good balance of outdoor living and city within reach. I am an avid member of my community and have a wonderful circle of supportive, loving friends and family. I enjoy cooking, hiking, camping, and spending time with friends and family.
I live in a spacious two-bedroom cottage with my yellow Labrador, Sally. It’s in a small town with a nice community, including several playgrounds, prep schools, and good high schools. The area boasts so much outdoor opportunity and family adventures, including several lakes, camping, boating, hiking, and picnicking as well as outdoor family movies, craft festivals, Christmas festivals, music festivals, and so on. I really think I live in a great area with activities that are very family-driven.
My Extended Family
I keep in touch often with my mother and brother, as well as my brother’s wife and three kids. My nephew is in college, and I have two younger nieces, and they and my brother live in British Columbia, which means we have many Facetime chats throughout the week! Sally, my dog, is a big hit with my nieces, and we visit frequently and also plan holidays together.
As children, my brother and I always enjoyed the big family camping holiday, with all the cousins, aunts, and uncles, and it’s a tradition that’s stuck. We enjoy a big family summer camping trip, where all the kids enjoy swimming and the great outdoors. Christmas and New Year are always big family holidays for us, too. There’s a lot of preparing, a lot of cooking, a lot of visiting, and a lot of rejoicing!
What Led Me To Adoption
Ever since I was a teenager, I imagined being an adoptive parent. Not sure how that would unfold, I knew I manifested something that would stay with me forever. Before I knew it, I was no longer a teenager, and once financially settled I started to plan my adoption journey. I have been single for nearly a decade, and since then I’ve always welcomed adoption into my life, for many years, taking adoption to the next stage feels like the natural next step to grow my family.
