Being a mother is a choice I made long ago and I’ve waited my whole life to take this step. I have never wanted anything more, and I promise that I will always put your child first and raise him or her to be caring, strong, and confident. Your child will always feel secure and loved. They will learn to chase dreams and know that it is okay to take risks because I will be there to cheer them on and there when they fall. To me, that’s what a parent is all about: being there and helping your child discover who he or she will become.
I've always known that I was meant to be a mom. When I was young, I was the neighborhood babysitter and I used to imagine the family that I would have one day. Even back then, I knew that I would build my family through adoption. It just always felt right to me and like it was going to be part of my story.
I am from a close family. My sister and I have grown to have an even stronger bond as adults. I have two young nieces, who are my favorite people in the entire world. They have their own room in my house and are always eager to stay over. I have earned and cherish every “World’s Best Aunt” t-shirtand mug! My greatest joy is having fun with Emmie and Harper and taking them on new adventures. They are eager to have a new cousin!
Sadly, my mom passed away four years ago. She and I were incredibly close. I know that I will be a wonderful mother because I learned everything from her.
I have an amazing support system of both family and friends. I am extremely lucky that my sister and her family, as well as my father, grandmother, aunt, uncle and cousins all live nearby. Additionally, I have many friends who are already parents who cannot wait to be "aunts" and "uncles" when I become a mother.
