Ever since I can remember, I’ve loved children and knew I wanted to be a mom someday. I’m a natural caregiver – compassionate, kind, thoughtful, generous, open-minded: all traits that I know will make me a great mother.
I live in New York City, and my compassionate nature has led me to a rewarding job that I love, working in communications for an organization whose mission is to develop an AIDS vaccine. I’m at a point in my career where I’ve established the security of a comfortable lifestyle and a great work-life balance. I also actively volunteer, as I feel it’s so important to give back to my community and help those who are having a hard time.
In my work and personal life, I surround myself with people who inspire me and have strong values. I have the most amazing family and friends, who are my support system and have been cheering me on throughout my adoption journey. I’m incredibly lucky to have these people by my side and as future role models for your child!
I feel so fortunate to be where I am in life – a great job, a loving family, wonderful friends, and financial security, while living in one of the most culturally dynamic and diverse cities in the world. The one thing my life is missing is a child who I can devote myself to, and with whom I can share all of these blessings.
There’s nothing I want more than to be a mom, and while I know being a single parent will be challenging, I’m confident that my strong values, compassionate nature, dedicated support network of family and friends, and the financial security that I’ve established, will allow me to embrace those challenges and give your child the happiest, most secure, best life I can provide!
Most importantly, I’m looking forward to exposing your child to the heritage, culture, and history of their birth family. If you so desire, my hope is that we’ll have an open and fluid relationship with you, so that your child will feel connected to where they came from. You’ll always be an important part of your child’s life and I look forward to learning more about you and your wishes for the future.
I live in a spacious brownstone apartment in Park Slope, Brooklyn, and I have the entire ground floor, with a private backyard. Park Slope is the ideal neighborhood to raise a child in NYC – there are tons of good reasons why so many families choose to live here.
I’m just two blocks from beautiful Prospect Park, which is always teeming with dogs, families, and kids playing sports. I love bringing a blanket and picnic to the park to enjoy all the free concerts, dance performances, and plays that take place throughout the summer.
In addition to the park, there are tons of playgrounds, science and music camps, and community programs designed especially for kids. Plus, the school district is ranked among the top in the city!
I feel very fortunate to live in this community and to be able to take advantage of all the opportunities it has to offer to develop engaged, inquisitive children.
I had a very happy upbringing, with an older brother and parents who were the ultimate role models for how to provide a loving home filled with warmth, laughter, encouragement, and family traditions. My amazing dad passed away suddenly when I was in high school, and my mom, brother, and I pulled through that tough time with the support of our family and friends. My dad’s family values were unmatched, and his positive influence has remained with me to this day.
My parents’ mantra was always: family comes first. That philosophy and the values that were instilled in me are part of the fabric of my being, and I look forward to passing those values along to the child I’m lucky enough to parent.
My biggest cheerleader throughout my journey to become a mother is my own mom. She’s my hero and ultimate role model for how to be a strong, independent, compassionate, loving, generous, kind, and caring woman and mother.
One of the many advantages of living in New York City is that I have a large group of very close friends who live nearby. These friends are my chosen family, and they’re as excited as I am about me becoming a mom. I feel so very fortunate to have these lifelong friends as a support system and role models for the child I adopt.
I work for a non-profit organization whose mission is to develop an AIDS vaccine. I’ve been there for 12 years, and I feel so lucky to be able to say that I absolutely love my job! It’s awesome to be part of a mission that could be world-changing. Work-life balance is a strong value at my job, and we’re provided with amazing benefits for families and children.
In my free time, I actively volunteer. I feel it’s so important to give back to the community, to help people in need, and to gain insight and perspective on the lives of those less fortunate. I dream of having a child with whom I’ll participate in volunteering and community outreach as a regular part of our lifestyle.
Seeing the world is one of my passions, and I’ve been fortunate enough to have traveled to some wonderful destinations. I especially enjoy going places I haven’t been before and getting to know the local people and customs. When I become a mom, I can’t wait to show your child the world and expand their horizons beyond our immediate community.
