dear expectant mother

It’s hard to know where to begin when writing a letter as important as this. I could try to cram my life story into this little spot. I could tell you how I would approach parenting with love and dedication, setting age-appropriate goals and expectations, and avoiding yelling and unhelpful approaches. There are so many things I could say, and I ask myself what I’d want to know if I were in your shoes. But I’m not in your shoes. I can offer a listening ear, my genuine support, and endless gratitude for this decision that you’ve made.

If you choose me, I can assure you that your child will be the focus of my life. They will be listened to, supported, cheered on, and loved as I help them build their confidence and develop the skills they’ll need to be successful in life.

I can’t wait to make them delicious meals, to show them how to cook, to help them with their homework, and to read to them before bed. Whatever their interests are, I’ll support them, whether that means taking them to drum lessons or helping them put together a costume for Comic-Con.

It may sound corny, but I think people come into our lives at the right time for the right reasons, and I pray that I’ve come into yours for this most very important reason of adopting your child—the most incredible blessing I could ever hope to receive. There aren’t words to express my gratitude.

About Me

Hello! My name is Liz. I am a branding specialist for a great national company in Colorado. I’m also an artist, writer, and former teacher (art and English). I love to cook, walk my dog, enjoy this beautiful state of Colorado, and spend time with family. I’m honest, loyal, genuine, funny, creative, warm, and protective of the ones I love. In life, I like to balance logic and emotions and put others first. I have published a children’s book, I’ve spent time working in my church’s nursery, and I’ve felt honored to make a positive difference in my former students’ lives. I know I was born to be a parent, and I realize what a massive gift it is to be honored with being an adoptive parent. I will love this kiddo unconditionally for the rest of my life.

My Home & Pets

I live in Colorado with my parents. I truly won the parent lottery, and I’m grateful for them every single day, which is why I cook them amazing meals and provide comic relief. In our home, we also have Parker and Jet. Parker is a poodle/schnauzer (6) that basically looks like a white cloud of cotton candy. Jet (7) is our cat, who is far too sophisticated to play with Parker. We live right next to an amazing park and several schools. Although we live in “suburbia,” there is a lot to do around us, and we’re not that far from the city. Colorado is one of the most beautiful states in the country, and I can’t wait to show this kiddo the majestic beauty of it: the fields of wildflowers, the botanical gardens, and the gorgeous mountains.

My Extended Family

I’m an only child. Obviously I’m pretty close to my parents, and we enjoy doing normal things like dinner, movies, and celebrating traditional holidays. My dad has one sibling who lives in another state, and my mom is one of seven. Five are still living and live in different states. We have a condo in Pennsylvania and enjoy visiting because we have extended family up there and it’s a beautiful place near Lake Erie.

Our “family” in Colorado is a family of friends. Being an artist, a former teacher, and a current marketing professional, I’ve met some fantastic people and have made friends for life. My closest circle of friends is excited for me to adopt. I also can’t wait to join other parent groups so I can learn and grow and meet awesome parents and their kids. I feel very fortunate with my friends and family. I have a great advantage and resource with my parents being so involved because they can babysit (on the rare occasions I may need them) rather than a stranger.

What Led Me To Adoption

A few years ago, I was diagnosed with PCOS, which makes it difficult to conceive. I am also single. So rather than pursue IVF, I knew that I could provide a fantastic home for a child who already exists. I have seen examples of happy and successful adoptions through friends and family and from being a former teacher. Additionally, I live with my parents, who are both retired and absolutely wonderful people. My dad was a geologist, and my mom worked in human relations and taught college. They 100% support my desire to adopt and can’t wait to love, play, teach, and babysit their future grandchild. Both I and my parents have so much to offer this kiddo, who will have the love and support of all three of us.
