Dear Expectant Mother,
I’m trying to imagine being in your shoes, reading through profiles of a potential parent for your precious child. I am so thankful that you are taking the time to read my profile and to consider me as an adoptive parent for your precious child. I would be so honored to be able to take care of, encourage, love, and raise your baby. It would be such a joy for me!
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 teachers. It gave me an appreciation of music and education. I would love to pass that along to your baby. I believe in giving a child diverse experiences and opportunities, including travel. 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.
Again, thank you for considering me. Thank you!
I love life! 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. 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 well (e.g. after-school teacher for English, children’s summer programs, and daycare). I believe the number one 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. I enjoy walking around beautiful areas, taking photographs, designing cards, singing, and spending time with friends and family.
I was pleasantly surprised when I moved into my neighborhood two-and-a-half years ago! There’s a nice blend of families and retired couples in my quiet cul-de-sac. I live in a three-bedroom, two-bath house, with an enclosed backyard. The neighbors are friendly and watch out for one another. They will even take my garbage out to the street if I’m out of town. My neighbor across the street has already excitedly offered to babysit! She used to run a home-daycare and is so thrilled to know I’m hoping to adopt a lil’ one! Our town has a river running through it, and there are lots of opportunities for biking, walking and hiking trails. There are also museums, a civic center, and community theaters offering shows for families.
My Extended Family
Family is important to me! I have two younger brothers whom I adore! Even as adults, we keep in touch on a regular basis. I have five cousins and a niece and nephew. When I told my niece and nephew about hoping to adopt a baby, they were so excited! They’ve always wanted a cousin. My mom and I are close. We just went on a trip through the southern states to see the beautiful fall colors. My dad remarried when I was in college, so I have four adult step-siblings too. 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 and just 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 go for walks.
What Led Me To Adoption
After many years and many tears of a heartbreaking journey to have a child biologically, I felt devastated thinking it wasn’t meant for me. After some time, my heart started wondering about adoption. I now know adoption is the path meant for me to grow my family. I kept getting such a happy, warm feeling when I thought about adoption. Family is created from love, and I have so much love to share. I prayed about it and knew it would be the right step for me. I am really excited to be on this adoption journey!
