dear expectant mother

Dear Expectant Mother,

I want to start this letter by expressing my utmost admiration and respect for you. This must be an emotional and difficult choice for you to consider, yet you continue to do what you believe is right for your child. Your strength is admirable. I will never be able to understand what you are going through, but please know how much respect I have for you.

Secondly, thank you for reading my information and giving me this chance to show you how much I will love your child should you choose me. I promise to love them, honor them, and teach them how to honor themselves and the world around them. I promise your child will never want for anything and will have a solid family unit even with one parent. I promise to keep them safe, physically, medically, emotionally, and intellectually. I will teach them to respect the earth and everyone and everything on it. Your child will be accepted, never judged, encouraged, and loved no matter who their authentic self is.

Adopting a child has been my dream for over half my life. From a young age, I have been drawn to adoption, and I cannot believe I have the chance for this dream to come true.

Lovingly,
Hayley

My biggest dream is to be a mother; I have so much love to give and opportunities to provide. The beauty of adoption became the only way I knew I wanted to experience motherhood.

About Me

I am a positive, nature-loving, hardworking, caring woman who loves learning about others. I value each person for who they are and respect and encourage individual differences. I am very invested in working with children, especially my special education students, and I couldn’t picture my life not being in elementary education. Outside of working in a career I adore, I love to walk, run, and hike with friends and my two dogs! Being around empowering, strong, open, and loving friends and family is very important to me, so I make it an absolute point to see the people I love frequently. My life is full of road trips and experiencing adventures, and I cannot wait to share that with a child!

My Home & Pets

My home is an open layout ranch in a very family-friendly neighborhood! There are always families taking their daily walks and neighbor kids playing together in our development, which is tucked away from the main streets. I have a great fenced-in yard for a child to play safely and play with the dogs! I can’t wait to participate in Mommy and Me programs, go to swim classes at the YMCA, and play in the parks and beaches in my town. I have two dogs who are equally excited about children! Milton is a hound mix, and Barry is a French bulldog. They both love to snuggle with their heads on my lap on the couch and go for exciting hikes!

My Extended Family

I am the middle child with an older sister in California and a younger brother in New York. My parents live in the same town as I do, and they are immensely overjoyed to be grandparents. After telling my parents I had begun my adoption process, my mother purchased an adorable, super soft baby blanket because it was “too cute!” Though my siblings live far away, they both have expressed their elation about having a niece or nephew and play-fight over who will be the child’s favorite. We always get together for major holidays, including Thanksgiving and Christmas, and I see my parents weekly for Sunday dinners.

I am extremely lucky to have both grandmothers living, and they both cried when I told them they would be great-grandmothers. My mom’s mother is from Guam and is ecstatic to teach her great-grandbaby about the island, while my dad’s mother is ready to pass down her Italian traditions.

Everyone in my family is completely open to learning new traditions depending on the heritage of my child. We are eager to learn and add all the traditions that might be different than ours.

What Led Me To Adoption

My story starts the moment I learned about adoption as a child. There was never a question of how I wanted to grow my family, only when. I knew that would be the path I was meant to grow my family. The older I grew, the more the idea of adoption grew in my heart. My biggest dream is to be a mother; I have so much love to give and opportunities to provide. The beauty of adoption became the only way I knew I wanted to experience motherhood. This was the way I have dreamed of growing my family for 17 years, and I have never wavered in that desire.
