Dear Expectant Mother,
Being around children has always given me joy. The realization that motherhood wasn’t meant to be biologically resulted in sadness and inadequacy since I want to share my life with a child. To be able to love and nurture a child and share that love and guidance throughout the different stages of a child’s life is immeasurable. As I embark on this journey, I often find myself gravitating back to moments with my own parents that involve family vacations or simple pleasures such as gardening, cooking, and laughing with them. It saddens me a little that I can’t go back to those times, but I long to share those memories with my own little one. I imagine traveling with my child and taking my child to the gym, strapped to my chest so as not to be apart. I want to take them to the grocery store and let them select a treat that they like, just as my mother did for me. I plan to give unconditional love but also afford them the opportunities of a good home and a good education. I plan to protect my child fiercely but also raise them to have the fortitude to be able to make their own lifepath a reality in whatever way they choose.
My family and friends describe me as strong, nurturing, lively, disciplined, endearing, active, loving, stylish, and formidable in any effort I undertake. I am continually looking to expand on my character attributes, and it is with continual belief in myself that I keep moving forward. Knowing what I am capable of gives me comfort in the knowledge that I can impart those same traits to a child. With all that life has afforded me, there is nothing more important to me than love. I thank my family, especially my mother and father, for teaching me this lesson, to have love in whatever circumstances I may be in. I am grateful to them for all of my days for teaching me this.
The kitchen and gym are my favorites. I long to make food filled with love for my baby and want to take my baby with me, strapped to my chest, to the gym. I have had the privilege of living in areas filled with beautiful homes and great schooling. My home is cool in design and abundant in comfort. My parents’ homes have always had gardens, and my mother made sure I was out exploring nature. I remember sports, books, games, and Friday night movies and restaurant outings with my parents, and I want your baby to have those experiences with both them and me.
My Extended Family
I was born in India but had the privilege of coming to the United States when I was almost three years old, and as much as I like visiting India and hope to take my baby there for visits, there is nowhere like the U.S.A. The vast majority of my family is in India, and whenever I have visited, my visits have been filled with laughs and great food and memories.
My mother and father are spiritual as opposed to religious, as I am. My mother has made sure to incorporate Indian holidays into our life here in terms of making the great traditional food and going to the local temple to celebrate our lives and our gratitude. I remember going to India during all of the extravagant family weddings, which was so exciting with the guests, the amazing colors, and the food, all while celebrating a life event. I hope to take your child to India, but I would also like to take him or her to places here in the U.S.A. and abroad. I want to give your child those same opportunities my parents gave to me.
What Led Me To Adoption
When I made the decision that I wanted to become a mother, I initially attempted it biologically. When the biological attempt did not succeed, I then saw that there were other ways to become a mother, which is why I am pursuing adoption. I have had the privilege of seeing friends and a few colleagues create their respective families through the adoption journey as well, and I have seen how it has made them better people. My parents taught me that giving is better than receiving, and I understand that now. I want to give my life, my love, and everything else I have to a baby. As a mother, all that I am would belong to my child.
