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 :-)
I live in Los Angeles California, in the same house that I grew up in. My neighborhood is safe and family friendly... We are close to beaches, libraries, tide pools, hikes, and a playground and a preschool (the same preschool that I once taught at, and went to when I was little!).
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 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. It is also one that is remote, so I will be able to be a stay at home mom.
