dear expectant mother

Dear Beautiful Expectant Mom,

My eyes fill with tears as I consider your inner strength, courage, and love during this incredibly difficult decision to consider adoption. Words are not adequate to describe the deepest sense of honor and love I have for you and the soul you are entrusting to my love and care.

If you honor me with this highest privilege, I promise to always love your child, in all circumstances.

I promise you to keep him or her safe, demonstrate how to build healthy and kind relationships, teach responsibility, the humanity of helping others, build his or her confidence to become all God designed them to be, and expose them to different cultures and social conditions.

I will always honor you in your child’s eyes and share with them your love and courage. I will share that we were both meant to be a part of his/her perfectly designed journey to bring him/her to become who they were meant to be and to leave a fingerprint on this world that only they can leave.

I would feel very honored to be a mother, guide, and mentor to a beautiful soul who was meant to be with me.


About Me

I’ve lived in California for 15 years; but, I grew up in Germany. I am a US citizen and am grateful for my Greek heritage and exposure to diverse geographic, economic, ethnic, and cultural communities. Experiencing this diversity developed my deep compassion for people. A compassion that led me to become an integrative doctor with my own thriving practice. I love bringing hope to others, inspiring them to become the best version of themselves, and the ability to provide medical expertise to their health conditions.

I love biking, hiking, pilates, cooking, and spending time with close friends and family. Creating a balanced lifestyle built to nurture relationships is important to me; therefore, my clinic has multiple providers giving me the flexibility to be in the clinic twice a week. This intentional schedule provides financial stability and also the opportunity to make a difference in lives.

My Home & Pets

I live three miles from the ocean, in a charming beach town in California. Our beautiful beach condo makes it easy to experience daily beach life: sandcastles, sea shell collecting, bodyboarding, surfing, biking, etc.

The neighborhood cares about nature and the local community. The town is known for its quaint small-town feel, excellent public education system, children’s park, and acclaimed activities and programs for children of all ages.

Just ten minutes inland, there are fantastic hikes and horseback riding ranches. It’s a great place to be outdoors and experience a warm, friendly, safe, and kid-friendly neighborhood. My cat, Mr. JV, loves kids and only increases the warmth of our home as he nestles up on your lap.

My Extended Family

My beloved sister lives in Greece with her husband and two kids. We visit at least once a year and we FaceTime two or three times a week. I love my family. We enjoy having coffee together and talking about the world, love, and life.

When I moved to the U.S. 15 years ago, I was blessed to be grafted into a new family with three best friend “sisters” and two best friend “brothers,” who have now kind, joyful, funny, and creative kids. I am the proud aunty of 3 boys and 4 girls. We love spending time together. We have crafting days, family dinners, sleepovers, pool time, holiday celebrations, and family trips together. We find it adds culture and curiosity to combine American, German, and Greek traditions for the holidays.

Should you bless me with this gift, your little one would be embraced by the most loving, joyful, and fun cousins you can imagine. The aunties and uncles he/she would gain, would make your heart smile. He/she would always have someone to hang out with, play with, and, later in life, lend a helping hand. This is a family of true love and support.

What Led Me To Adoption

I always wanted to be a mom and being a birth mom was not something God had in mind for my life. I am a natural nurturer, it completes me to pour love into others, and I simply love children. My clinic is financially successful and built. I am at the point in my life where I want to devote myself entirely to being a mom. I’m excited for us to explore what his or her soul is meant to do and be. I would feel very honored and blessed to have the chance to become a mom and provide a nurturing, loving, and fun home to a child meant to be with me.
