All my life, my greatest dream has been to be a Mother. I found my self in a situation where my long time boyfriend did not want to have children and I did. I could not compromise my dreams of having my own child. So, I made the difficult decision to leave the relationship, move back to my family home and try on my own. I am so grateful to be on this journey.
I come from a pretty big family. I have a brother, two sisters, and lots of aunts and cousins! We are loud, loving, kind, supportive and definitely fun to be around. We are big on hugs, holidays, family outings, camping and Sunday dinners. Everyone is so excited for me to adopt and eager to be a big part of this child's life. My brother lives locally and has two young children. It is important to me to raise a child in a family with other children. My brother and I want our kids to grow up together, build memories and create life long friendships, like we did.
I live in Malibu, California, in the same house that I grew up in. Our neighborhood is safe and family friendly. We are within walking distance to a beach, a library, tide pools, hikes, a playground and a preschool (the same preschool that I once taught at, and went to when I was little!). I have many fond memories growing up on the beach, playing in the ocean, jumping over waves and collecting shells... I am excited to watch my child grow up sharing these same memories that are so dear to me.
Los Angeles is a very diverse city. It is a melting pot where you can find all types of culturally diverse people, food, art and traditions. There are so many opportunities here, always something new to explore and learn. California is a beautiful state and living here gives you the unique opportunity to always be a days drive away from big cities to small towns to sunny beaches to snowy mountains to red woods and rocky coast lines. The perfect place to camp, explore and take road trips!
I love to visit new places, traveling has enhanced my perspective and taught me to respect and embrace other cultures. I can't wait to share some of my favorite places and discover new ones.
I am happiest at the beach with my feet in the water. I am easy-going, fun-loving and I love to laugh. I love the outdoors and the sunshine, spending time in museums, seeing live music and trying new things. I love cooking and baking, listening to music, playing video games, gardening, camping and road trips.
I am a web developer and graphic designer. It is a fun, challenging and creative career. My office is in Portland, Maine, however, I work from home in California. The biggest and most important benefit of working from home is that I will be able to be a stay at home mom.
I love cooking big dinners for family and friends and trying out new recipes. I love throwing dinner parties and having our home filled with music, laughter and the smells of a delicious home cooked meal. I am still working on my baking skills...
I started painting 15 years ago. It feels good to be creative and gives me a sense of peace and grounding. I believe that creative expression stretches the mind and imagination. I will encourage whatever talents and dreams my child has and provide an environment where he or she can flourish.
