Family Type: Single
State I live in: Florida

dear expectant mother

I know this is a difficult decision to make—one I cannot fathom making. This is the most selfless and courageous thing that a person can do as you are making a huge personal sacrifice. It takes a strong woman to care not only for her child but also for herself, loving someone so much while simultaneously letting go. I know that you will carry your child forever in your heart. You will be remembered always as honoring you will honor your child.

I know this will not ease the pain, but be assured I will provide a loving and stable home, one with exploration of the great outdoors, baking brownies, game nights, and camping. I can’t wait to make memories with your child and provide the roots so he or she can fly. Please know your child will be loved always and surrounded by family and friends. We may not share the same genes, but there will be love and acceptance, always.

A mother’s love begins before the child is born and lasts a lifetime. Thank you for looking at my profile and considering me.

About Me

My family and friends describe me as spontaneous, loyal, and passionate. My mother is my best friend and confidant. My father is the strong, silent type, but I still know that he loves me no matter what. I grew up in a small town running the neighborhood with my brother and other children my age. My love for the outdoors stemmed from those days spent playing outside after school, and I realized that I wanted to settle in a place that highlights nature. I enjoy taking walks with my dogs, reading, baking, and spending time with the horses and my son. Because of my desire to care for others, I became an RN. I recently began to work from home in a different aspect of nursing but have found it to be just as fulfilling.

My Home

I live off of a quiet country road where I can look out my window and see the horses grazing. I have two horses, one who gives the occasional pony ride and the other who is my trail and show partner. I also share my home with two dogs, the basset brigade. With their floppy ears and short, long bodies, who can resist? I recently decided to try my thumb at gardening with vegetables and blueberry bushes. But don’t think that I am out in the boonies. I live 10 miles from a vibrant college town with sporting events, concerts, and tons of parks and restaurants, with schools being 5 miles away. I would love to share this with your child.

My Extended Family

My extended family has always lived farther than a quick car ride away. However, we have always been close. My brother and I spent every summer with my grandparents in Illinois. That was when some of my best memories were made—taking walks after dinner with my grandfather, cooking and playing cards with my grandmother, and playing with my cousins. Aside from those summers, my grandparents would come visit us and stay for three months in the winter, further cementing the bond.

Now that everyone is grown up, we have family reunions once a year, but I still find the time to head to Illinois, especially during apple picking season! I have been fortunate that the majority of my cousins have settled in the same state, allowing us to get together frequently, and my brother is about an hour away. I am very fortunate that my parents live 15 minutes away as they cannot wait to have another child to spoil and pass on some family traditions to, like baking cookies at Christmas, Easter egg hunts, and birthday treasure hunts.

What Led Me To Adoption

I have always been a nurturing, caring person putting others above myself, which is why I became an RN. I found that while taking care of patients is my career, I want to further foster that passion with a child. A friend and co-worker of mine has adopted two children, and I see the joy of that new forever family. I want to provide a loving and supportive home for your child to grow. I want to be there for the ups and downs, loving that child no matter what.
