Dear Expectant Mother,
I’m trying to imagine being in your shoes, reading through profiles of potential parents, and I am so thankful you’re taking the time to consider me for your child. If you choose me, I want to be the best parent I can possibly be for your baby. You can count on me for providing a close, loving, and happy family environment. You can also count on me to raise your child with Christian values of thanksgiving, generosity, love, and family.
I grew up with parents who are professional classical and contemporary musicians and public school teachers. They gave me an appreciation for music and education, and I would love to pass that along to your baby. I believe in giving a child diverse experiences and opportunities, including travel and supporting natural gifts and talents. If you choose me, your baby will grow up with opportunities, and he or she will be loved and protected. He or she will grow into a confident child and adult.
I would be so honored to be able to take care of, encourage, love, and raise your baby, It would be such a joy and a dream come true.
I’m an optimistic person and hold a belief that everything works out for good. I work as a leadership coach, helping managers and executives become better leaders. I love life, and it’s fun for me to help others and see people progress towards their career goals and life dreams. Throughout my life, I’ve worked with children as an after-school teacher for English, in children’s summer programs, and in daycare. I believe the most important job in the world is being a parent. You can count on me to provide a safe, nurturing, and fun environment for your child. As an adult, I’ve competed in ballroom dance in the US and internationally, and I enjoy walking around beautiful areas, taking photographs, singing, going to events, and especially spending time with friends and family.
My neighborhood is such a pleasant place to be. I live in a three-bedroom, two-bath house on a beautiful lake. The community has a clubhouse, playground, pool, tennis courts, and we get a monthly calendar of family events. In my quiet cul-de-sac, there’s a blend of families with babies, toddlers, and tweens, as well as retired couples. The neighbors are friendly and watch out for one another. Our town has a river running through it, and there are lots of opportunities for biking, walking, berry picking, and fishing. There are also museums, a civic center, and community theaters within twenty minutes, offering shows for families, concerts, and larger events.
My Extended Family
Family is incredibly important to me. My parents and I are close. My mom and I recently took a trip through the southern states to see the beautiful fall colors. I have two younger brothers whom I adore (even as adults, we keep in touch on a regular basis). My dad remarried when I was in college, so I have four adult step-siblings, too. I have five cousins and a niece and nephew. When I told my niece and nephew about my desire to adopt a baby, they were so excited! They’ve always wanted a cousin.
I love our extended family get-togethers! When our extended family gets together, we often end up hanging out in someone’s living room or kitchen, laughing and talking. When the kids were younger, we’d do something fun and interesting in the kitchen, like making homemade hot chocolate mix, cookies, and even scrambled-egg sushi! As they’ve gotten older, we play board games, read stories, go to movies, sing and play music, and go for walks. For me, it doesn’t matter what we’re doing: we could be roasting marshmallows, watching a baseball game, or going to a symphony. It’s the closeness and heart-to-heart times that mean the most to me.
What Led Me To Adoption
After many years of trying to have a child biologically, I felt devastated, thinking it wasn’t meant for me. But I know a family doesn’t have to come from blood, and my heart started wondering about adoption, I now know adoption is the path meant for me to grow my family. I keep getting such a happy, warm feeling when I think about adoption. Family is created from love, and I have so much love to share. I’ve prayed about it and knew it would be the right step for me.
