To Someone Special,
Hello! Thank you for taking the time to learn about me. My name is Jannelle and I live in Redmond, WA, which is a suburb east of Seattle. From a very young age, I have known that I wanted to be a mother. I feel like my life has continually been preparing me for motherhood, to include experiences like helping my mom with her in-home daycare, babysitting when I turned 13 years old, and being a nanny to three children in my early 20s. I have also been blessed with the opportunity to have constant interactions with my eight wonderful nieces and nephews, and for the past 11 years, I have been a nurse working in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit with the smallest and most fragile babies. I have not been fortunate enough to be able to have my own children, but know with all of my heart and mind that I still want to be a mother. This is why I have chosen to adopt a child.
About a year ago, I found a diary that I had kept from when I was eight or nine, and in it was a list of baby boy names and baby girl names. And although I question my choice of names, there is, again, no question in my heart and mind of my desire to be a mother. This may sound rather cliché, but I know that I will always have more love to give. My own mother is my hero and has shown me what it looks like to be such a loving and sacrificing mom. She and my dad have given my siblings and me the world. That is why I know that raising a child and giving him or her the best life possible would give me such joy and fulfillment. Thank you very much for taking the time to read this and for possibly making my hope become a reality. If you would like to know more about me, please feel free to read on and view my pictures.
