I will love your child with all my heart. I want them to always know where they came from and be proud of their roots.

Thank you for so much for taking the time to learn more about me. I imagine that this must be a confusing and challenging time for you, as you think about your options and what's best for you and your baby. I admire your courage in considering adoption and am glad you are here. I hope after learning a bit more about me and my life, you'll want to get in touch. I'd really look forward to us getting to know one another and would be glad answer any questions you might have, as you think about adoption and whether I might be the right adoptive Mom for your baby.

To tell you a little bit about me---I have always known that I wanted to be a mom, and I am excited about the prospect of adopting a baby and starting a family. I commit to giving this child the very best life I can. I will always be there for them, no matter what, and will make sure that they know that they are loved unconditionally. They will always know who they are, where they came from, and how happy and grateful I am for the opportunity to be their mom.

Who I Am

About me and why I want to adopt:

I have always known that I wanted to be a mom but the "how" and "when" turned out to be less certain. I am so excited about the prospect of adopting a baby and starting a family. I commit to giving my child the best life possible. I will be there for them, no matter what, and will make sure that they know that they are loved unconditionally. They will always know who they are, where they came from, and how grateful I am for the opportunity to be their mom.

Friends and family:
I had a wonderful childhood and want to pass along this gift to my children. I was born in Germany and moved to Connecticut when I was little with my parents, sister, and brother. My siblings still live on the east coast, and my extended family lives in Germany, but we try to visit often. My parents surrounded us with love and attention and gave us a very secure and stable childhood. We always knew that we were the most important part of their lives. I aspire to be as great a mom as my mom and dad were parents for me.

I am lucky to have a group of amazing friends, here and around the country. Since my family is further away, they are my “chosen family.” Many of my friends also have children and there is a circle of “Aunties,” “Uncles,” and “adopted grandparents” eagerly awaiting the new addition to the family. I share my home with my dog, Bodhi, whom I brought home from a local rescue. He is an active, silly pup with a lot of spunk who makes me laugh every day. Bodhi loves kids and is always ready to cuddle and give big sloppy kisses.

My Work:
As a kid I always liked my science classes and studied biology in college. I moved to San Francisco to go to graduate school for my PhD in neuroscience. I work as the editor of a research journal/magazine that publishes research on the brain. I love my job. Brain science is so fascinating and I have the chance to work with great colleagues and interesting scientists from all over the world. I am also proud that the research we publish may someday help people with brain diseases, like autism, schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s disease, and other difficult conditions. My company is very family friendly, and my job affords me the financial stability and flexibility to be a single parent.

For fun-my hobbies:
Getting outdoors with friends is a favorite way to spend my free time— hiking the many beautiful trails the Bay Area offers, going to the beach or taking Bodhi to local dog parks. I love doing artsy things. I have been doing pottery for many years, and gardening is my other artistic outlet. My home is filled with art, both my own and from friends and family. I can’t wait to break out the crayons and finger-paints with my son or daughter and proudly display their art on the walls. Reading and books are another passion. Reading with my friends’ children is a lot of fun and am looking forward to sharing some of their favorites with my kids. I have been lucky in my life to have traveled all over the world. Travelling has taught me a lot about other people and cultures and about myself. I hope to share the fun and excitement of travel with my children, exploring the world together, near and far.

My wish:
Childhood should be a very special time. There should be a lot of fun and laughter. Most importantly, I want my little one to have a childhood where he or she can be free to play and explore, to learn and discover themselves but also make mistakes, always knowing that they are safe and taken care of and that they will be loved and supported through it all. I promise to raise this child in an environment where they can blossom and bloom and grow up to be the amazing person that they were meant to be.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me. Please feel free to reach out to me anytime. I am wishing you the best.

Adoption Diary

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, everyone!  This year I had Christmas on two continents, with three Christmas trees——first in Germany with my cousins, then another Christmas celebration with my brother and his family in Connecticut and finally at home in Berkeley. That’s not quite the Christmas I had planned. The Germany trip came together last minute, but all in all, the jet-setting holiday turned out to be really nice. In Germany, I got to spend time with my cousins and their kids, Sebastian and Matthias, whom I adore. Germany is a great place to spend Christmas—-it’s a very festive time, with lots of lights and decorations and the Christmas markets that you find all over Germany.  It was really fun to hang out with the kids. I last saw them in August in Greece and really missed them. We had fun putting together Sebastian’s new Star Wars Lego set and playing various games. The kids turned me onto Pokemon Go and I will admit that I am now slightly obsessed (Level 14 in just a week!). Connecticut was nice too. Otto is getting has gotten so much bigger since I last saw him. He’s toddling around all over the house and loved the train set and blocks he got for Christmas. He and Gary (their dog) are still best buddies. Gary has clearly figured out that an 18 month old toddler is a pretty good source of snacks. I’m back at home now in Berkeley with a few more days, and enjoying a third Christmas at home, hanging out with friends, enjoying my Christmas tree for a few more days and getting in some relaxation before gearing up for 2017. Here are some photos from the last few weeks. Check out more photos on my blog:
