Educated, Caring, Successful Woman Hoping to Adopt from Special Someone
My name is Erica and for as long as I can remember, I've always wanted to adopt. Literally. From ages 10-14, I used to create monthly essays or PowerPoint presentations to try to convince my parents to adopt me a sibling. My mom says when I was even younger, I would ask my aunt if I could take home my baby cousins. In my later teen years, I volunteered a lot with the nursery in my church, in addition to babysitting and leading a Girl Scouts tenderfoot group. In college, I began my education to become an elementary educator. And during my college breaks, I've volunteered in orphanages all over the world (America, Peru, India, Zambia, and Zimbabwe).
Now that I own my own home, I have also opened my heart and door to children in foster care - in addition to a plethora of foster "fur babies" - though I plan to take a break from fostering children for awhile after adoption so I can take the newest family member's needs and feelings in consideration.
This lifelong love of children and the innate ability and desire to love children that are not biologically mine are both qualities that I believe set me apart from many potential adoptive parents. If you agree and want to know more about me and the kind of life I can offer your little one, please read my other blog posts and/or visit my website - adoptionsfirstoption.com
I would like to end by giving your child the same promise my dad gave me growing up: "You may go to bed angry, but you'll never doubt you're loved."
Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope to connect with you soon.
All the best,
