Who I Am
I am Natalie. My lifelong dream is to be a mother. I want to create a happy home filled with laughter and joy for a child to flourish.
I am born and raised in California. I love spending time at the beach and in the outdoors. I also love cooking and crafting and road-trips. I am very kind and loving and I promise that I will be the best mom ever.
My road to motherhood has not been easy. I thought that having a child would just happen. But, as life unfolded it wasn't just happening. Before trying adoption, I experienced years of failed fertility treatments and a few painful miscarriages. I have been been trying to adopt for the past 3 years... and it has come with challenges, sacrifices and setbacks. The most difficult being the two failed adoptions.
I have faith that everything happens for a reason. And I am still here, waiting and trying to be a mom :-)
Whales make there way up from the Sea of Cortez to Alaska… even if it just a little spray, it is so cool to see!
I hope everyone is able to enjoy today! I am thankful for a crowded kitchen and being able to spend the day with friends and family.
