Dear Expectant Mother,

It's lovely to "meet" you!

I can't imagine what circumstances led you here. I don't take lightly the decision to make an adoption plan for your child. It may be one of the most difficult decisions you will face. I thank you for your consideration in learning a bit more about me.

Please know that if I am chosen to parent your child, I will raise he or she to know where they came from and to know their birth family, as much or as little as you want to know them in future years.

I’ll raise your child to have a gentle heart but to also be strong in himself/herself; to be able to see the world and arrive at their own opinions; to believe in fairness and justice and not stand by if others are being treated unfairly. I promise to always surround us with a strong support system and show him/her unconditional love!

I wish you strength on this journey, whether or not our paths should cross.

With a sincere heart,
Karen

Who I Am

I grew up in New Jersey, within 20 miles of New York City, and went to college in Boston, a city that I still love. I am a special education teacher and have tremendous patience with students who have struggled in school. I find joy in helping my students succeed and build confidence in themselves.

I also work at a local theater. I enjoy interacting with the people as well as the opportunity for being present for Broadway shows, concerts or comedians.

I’m single and live in close proximity to many family and friends! We gather often to celebrate holidays, birthdays, and other special occasions. It's important to me to have a strong support system to share life's moments. They are all excited at the possibility of welcoming a little one into the bunch!

For over three years I was a foster parent to a little boy. I raised him from ages 1 to 4 and it has been the greatest joy in my life. While he was in foster care, his birth family and I chose to attend festivities together such as Sesame Street Live, Paw Patrol and Christmas events. His family and I continue to have contact and spending time with him is amazing.

Adoption Diary

Baby Bookshelf

I love to read, so I’m excited to share a picture of this bookshelf I’ve started to fill. It’s full of my favorite children’s books. I can’t wait to share my love of reading and make bedtime stories part of a baby’s nighttime routine!

Dreaming of Vacation

Dreaming of a vacation on this Monday! One year ago I was planning my summer vacations for 2018: the Caribbean, Seattle area, and Hawaii. Can’t wait to add a little one to my travel experiences!
