I am a 40-year-old divorced woman with no children. I have wanted to be a mother for as long as I can remember.
I grew up in Long Beach, CA and now live in Lakewood, CA....about 5 minutes from my childhood home, where my parents still live!
I have one older sister who is married with 2 daughters. They live local and I'm fortunate to be a big part of their lives.
I own and live in a 2-bedroom home in Lakewood, CA.
My neighborhood is filled with families who have block parties on the 4th of July and bike parades at Christmas.
I live within walking distance of the same park I played in as a child, though it recently underwent a complete remodel! There's a playground, basketball courts, softball fields, picnic tables and large grassy areas to play soccer, volleyball or just sit under a tree and read.
