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.

Who I Am

My name is Jannelle. I have lived in Washington for about 25 years now. Before that, my family and I moved every few years because my dad was in the military. Because of this, I have a great love of travel and experiencing other cultures. I have three older siblings who I have always been close to. My brothers live out of state, but I try to visit them and their families at least once or twice a year. My sister lives locally, so I am blessed to be able to spend quality time with her and her family on a regular basis. My parents are still happily married after almost 50 years and only live about 15 minutes away, so I see them often. We were raised within a tight and loving family unit that promoted strong family values. I hope to instill these values in my child. My WHOLE family (parents, siblings and their spouses, and nieces/nephews) are very excited that I have chosen to adopt and can’t wait to welcome another child into our family.

I am single, but share my dwellings with my 12-year-old pup, Chico. He adores children and will “stand guard” when they are present. I am a Registered Nurse and have worked in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for 11 years. I absolutely love my patients and consider it an honor to be able to work with such fragile babies and their families. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time outside whether it’s going on a hike, taking my niece and nephews camping, or taking my pup to the dog park. I also enjoy spending time with my friends and their kids, who are like family to me. I have the pleasure of being an Aunt to eight wonderful nieces and nephews and being the honorary Auntie to my dear friends’ children. I am beyond excited to bring a child into my family, and cannot wait for him or her to know unconditional love. My greatest desire is to share my many blessings with a child.

Adoption Diary

It’s so simple

I went to my nephew’s award ceremony at his school last week and posters like this were on the walls throughout the school. I absolutely LOVED seeing this message. It’s so simple: Be nice. In a world where there seems to be so much turmoil, discrimination, and hate, it’s so important to pass on this message. Treat each other with respect and kindness. Treat each other how you would want to be treated, or how you would want your children or your parents to be treated. I was so happy to see that kids are being taught this and am hopeful that this generation can turn things in a positive direction.

It’s the little things

Working in the NICU can be emotionally, physically, and mentally exhausting sometimes. When I can, and when it’s appropriate, I like to try and lighten the mood. On this day, I was in charge and decided to walk around the unit in this crazy Christmas sweater for a bit. It brought smiles to my coworkers’ and some of the parents’ faces. Mission accomplished! :)
