I realize that you are faced with a difficult decision and I appreciate that you are taking the time to learn more about me. Since I was adopted as a child, I understand how hard this decision must have been for my birth mother and how much love went into her decision. If I am lucky enough to adopt your child, I can assure you that your child will grow up in a nurturing and secure environment filled with a loving family, a support network of positive role models, an excellent education, and given the freedom to explore his or her passions. I can promise you that I will raise your child with unconditional love. I hope that this profile will give you a sense of who I am, the type of parent I will be, and the world that your child would be welcomed into. I would be open to answer any questions that you may have to get to know me better. Or visit my Facebook page at "Kristie's Wish-Adoption Journey" for more info.

Who I Am
I was born in Seoul, Korea, spent 8 months in an orphanage, and then my whole world changed. I came to the U.S. and was adopted by my parents, Tom and Pat. A year later my brother Kevin was born and our family was formed.
I grew up on Long Island in New York in a very family oriented neighborhood. Quality family time was always a priority. I had a close group of friends in school and participated in many activities such as softball, basketball and tennis. I wasn't particularly athletic but I liked being active and enjoyed the social aspect of playing sports.
Upon graduating from college I began working at a media company--where I recently celebrated my 19 year anniversary. I was fortunate to always work with individuals that provided guidance and helped me grow professionally and personally. In my current role as an Executive Assistant, each day presents something new...similar to what I expect parenting to be like.
Giving back is important to me and I've always made time to volunteer. Whether it is reading with elementary school children or helping at a soup kitchen, compassion and paying it forward are something I look forward to sharing with your child.
I spent my life building a foundation to begin a family and am ready to share these amazing experiences. I live life to the fullest--trying to fill it with love and laughter.
