Dear Expecting Parent,

Thank you for taking the time to learn about me. I have always wanted to be a Mom. It has been a burning desire. I always thought I would find the right man, get married and have children with him. While I have had some significant relationships in my life, I just haven't found the right guy at the right time. The desire to be a Mom is so strong, that I know it is time to start my family. Many of my friends have children on their own and have taken different routes to do so. Adopting is what feels right to me. I feel that being a Mom is my destiny, just not by the traditional route.

As you go through the process of selecting a family, please know that I promise you I will do my best. I will honor and cherish this gift, this child. I will shower them with unconditional love and affection. I'll provide a good, safe home, an education, and community of family and friends. I will encourage him or her to live out their dreams. And I will honor the type of relationship you are comfortable with.

I have not settled in my life, and I will encourage him or her not to settle either. I will help him/her experience life to the fullest and achieve their full potential. Life with me will not be boring! We will take on many adventures together. Thank you for doing all that you have done. It is so appreciated.

With love, Ceci

Who I Am

I have always wanted to be a Mom. It has been a burning desire. I always thought I would find the right man, get married and have children with him. While I have had some significant relationships in my life, I just haven’t found the right guy at the right time. The desire to be a Mom is so strong though, that I know it is time to start my family. Many of my friends have children on their own, and taken different routes to do so. Adopting is what feels right to me. I feel that being a Mom is my destiny, just not by the traditional route.

I am very outgoing and adventurous. I am always the first to say “Yes” to any adventure, whether it’s taking a surfing lesson at the Jersey Shore, taking a spontaneous trip with friends, or learning something new. I love music and go to a lot of concerts, particularly rock and alternative rock. I was always athletic. In high school I played lacrosse and basketball and I played lacrosse in college. I work out almost every day – it’s important to me to take care of my body and I love running outside, hiking, and lifting weights. Even though I am a bit of a jock, I am also a bit of a nerd. I studied geology in college and later went on to get a Masters degree in business. I enjoy giving back and volunteer with Covenant House in New York and went to Guatemala to visit their shelter for girls.

I have a large network of great friends, from many parts of my life. Some are friends from school, others I met in New York or NJ. We live close and meet up for fun runs, birthdays, and dinners all the time. I travel on vacation with many of my closest girlfriends and in the summer we share a beach house together. My friends are positive, smart, and love to have fun! I know I can count on them whenever I need anything. Many of my friends have had babies in the last 3 years! And many of my friends are single moms. From spending time with them at birthday parties, going to the park and even visiting them in the hospital right after they gave birth, I have learned a lot about what to expect as a Mom.

I have had a fascinating career. My first job was as an engineer on oil rigs in Texas! This was my dream job at the time because I wanted to work outside and not at a desk. I have always been interested in male-oriented fields and thrive at showing them that a girl can do everything a man can do and more! I was always interested in the environment and so I eventually moved into renewable energy because I want to make the planet a better place for the next generation.

I now work for myself. I started my own consulting company a few years ago. I advise startup companies all over the world to be successful and I help large companies develop new innovative products and services. I had dreamed of being a professor one day and 2 years ago I also became a professor at the university in town where I teach one day per week. Having my own business allows me to set my own hours. I have had a successful career and now the focus is on work that gives me flexibility to be a Mom.

Adoption Diary

Virtual Sleep Out tonight

I have been volunteering with Covenant House for many years now.  Covenant House provides housing, food, clothes, job training and love and support to homeless and trafficked youth.  I have visited their New York City shelter and their safe house in Guatemala City.  I am so impressed with the support that they give young people.  Each year we do a Sleep Out, sleeping on the street in Manhattan for one night in solidarity with homeless youth (see pic from last year).  With the pandemic, tonight will be a “Virtual Sleep Out”.  I’ll sleep in an uncomfortable place in my home, not in my bed.  While I still have a lovely roof over my head, I will be thinking of those who do not have a bed to sleep in.  I hope to instill in a child the concept of giving back and helping those who are less fortunate.  I find it very rewarding to do purpose-driven work and would love to do volunteer activities with my future family.

Flowers on my morning walk

I usually love to run, go to the gym, and hike outside.  When the pandemic started, the gyms closed and I set up a little home gym.  I also started a new routine of taking a LONG walk every morning, no matter the weather and early enough so there are few other people around.  As life has started slowing down, I am noticing more of the little things in my neighborhood, like these flowers, blooming with the start of spring, in front of a now closed hotel.  While it sounds cliche, I see the importance of stopping to smell the flowers, more so now than ever.
