Loving, happy, single woman seeking to become a mom!
My name is Andrea, please call me Andi. I want you to know how deeply I appreciate you looking at my profile and considering me as a parent for your child. This must be an incredibly difficult time for you and I wish you much peace of mind. I honor you for the courage that you have as you make the important decisions in front of you. Thank you for considering me.
I am a life long Philadelphian. I am an outgoing person who loves to connect with people. I am a single woman with a large extended family of parents, aunts/uncles and cousins in the area. In addition, I am part of a large community. I live in a wonderful, safe and diverse area in a home that I own right outside of the city.
I have a very close relationship with my family - siblings, parents and more. I have parents and cousins in the area. My brother and his family are about and an hour away. My sister and her family are in Boston. The three of us speak every day! We are a large, loud & loving family. I am very close with my young adult niece and nephew.
Professionally I work as a member of the clergy. I am a rabbi and I work at a large synagogue as part of a team. I love to meet families at all points in their lives and to help them to find meaning and comfort. Nineteen years ago I founded a food pantry. My work involves a great deal of time with children of all ages. My congregants often tell me that I would be a wonderful mom; I yearn to be a mom and to provide a warm, loving, fun, creative home for a child. Because I work in a large community I have some flexibility in my schedule and my co-workers and congregants are very excited and supportive of my building a family.
In my work and family I have always loved helping kids to discover who they are and what special gifts they have been given. Though I am not yet married, I do hold out hope for that kind of committed relationship. In the meantime, I do not want to miss out on the blessings of raising children. With that in mind, and with the strong support of all those around me, I am excited to build my family through adoption. Please know that my family has given me so much love-and I would love to share that with your baby. I would, of course, be open to also having you in our lives-if you wish.
When I am not working I love to cook big dinners for friends and family. I love to sing and to do folk dancing. There is always music in my life. I love to travel - and I would want my child to experience different world cultures. My family is blessed to have a small home at a nearby beach and we all love to gather there in the summers.
As you can see, I am a person of faith and consider my life to be blessed. I would love to add the blessing of children into my life. I wish you much luck in your upcoming decisions and in the months ahead. I would look forward to speaking with you about our journeys.
Many Blessings - Andi
