Dear Expectant Mother,
Considering an adoption plan is the bravest and most selfless act a woman could ever do, and I commend your strength and courage. If you choose me I guarantee your child will be loved unconditionally everyday of their life. I promise to offer him or her all the opportunities possible. I want to pass onto your child the values and love that were given to me when I was young. If you choose me as your child's adoptive parent they will be loved, safe, healthy, and I will do whatever I can for their happiness. He or she will have access to education, culture, sports and hobbies, and the most loving people I know. This is my promise to you.
I work in a law firm, and on the side I organize (offices, bedrooms, garages). Occasionally, I write about local business owners and residents for a local newsletter. I’m dedicated to education, and I believe that environment is an important part of growing up. I strive to create a calm and relaxed atmosphere, but I can join lively and busy just as well. My favorite day includes walking to a café and working on a short story or memoir while sitting with a cup of coffee and maybe dessert. During the week, I like to visit a museum, theatre, or historical landmark. In the summer I like to camp and fish, and at any time I like to play board games with friends, host brunches, and attend paint nights. I am compassionate and open minded, easygoing and loving.
My town is popular for farmers’ markets, local music, and fine art galleries. My neighborhood is clean, and I can walk to anything I need. One of the city’s most beloved parks is one block away. Families barbecue, swim, play horseshoes, smell roses, visit the library, walk dogs, and play in the playground. There are tennis courts and a baseball field, plenty of room for kids to run amuck and have fun. There is a grade school nearby, a high school, and a daycare next to my favorite café. The neighborhood is especially delightful during holidays, because all the streets decorate with lights and props so everyone in the town can walk, drive, bike or carriage their way through to take in the holiday spirit.
My Extended Family
My parents raised me and my two sisters – and, growing up, my grandma lived with us too. My mom’s side of the family is small, but my dad’s side of the family is large. Some cousins on my dad’s side are adopted and they fit in like any blood relative. I have over thirty first cousins in a different state, so we visit every several years. My mom’s side is a lot closer geographically, so we see each other for holidays and birthdays. They absolutely love children. Both of my sisters live within fifteen miles from me, which is comforting. We get together for meals and shopping; and my nephew enjoys his aunties.
When my sisters and I go home for the holidays, we sit and snack at the kitchen table catching up. I ask my grandma for old stories, my dad tells jokes, and my mom is always filling bags of food for us to take home. I do crosswords with my grandma, talk old music with my dad in Spanish, and I always make time for my mom and I to have a heart to heart about anything. My sisters and I usually carpool and sing along the way.
What Led Me To Adoption
I don’t want to miss out on parenthood just because I have not found “the one.” Months ago, I said to my mom, “I’m ready to have a baby. Doing it alone will be hard, will you help and support me?” She said yes, as did my closest friends because they think I will be a good mom. I built my support network, and I already knew I was able to love a child I wasn’t related to. I want to be selfless. It’s one of the most exciting parts about parenthood. My best friend was adopted, and she is confident, happy, and she loves her adoptive parents. She also respects her birth mother for making such a tough but careful decision.
