Professional single (future) mom and her rescue dog seek child to nurture and adore!
PANDEMIC UPDATE: First things first; I know how hard the past few months have been. Whether you have found yourself in a bind related to the Coronaviris restrictions, or life just has just gotten in the way; I am here for you, even if it's short notice. I am open to driving across the state or country right now, if that's what's needed, and can ensure a safe and comfortable environment for baby's journey home. I will drop everything, at a moment's notice. Please don't hesitate to contact me!
Now that that's out of the way, I'd like to thank you for taking the time to get to know me. I'm 40 years old, and grew up in a small town on Long Island, in New York. I like to think I'm both worldly but tempered by a my small-town roots. Currently, I'm sheltering in place with my rescue dog Clarence in Oakland, California.
As a Behavior Analyst and former classroom teacher, I have an extensive background in education and working with kids of all ages. Children thrive on structure, and my parenting style will be one of both structure and flexibility.
I can't wait to share my love of food, gardening, and improvising in the kitchen with a child of my own. Exercise is also important, and we'll be active; hikes among the redwoods, family yoga classes, camping, and beach holidays. Education will never be out of reach, as I've already started a savings fund for college.
We'll travel a few times a year, visiting family in Boston, London, and Arizona. While I'll encourage, I won't overwhelm. There will be lots of time for childhood, pretend play, and relaxing. Our weekends will contain some appointments and chores, but also lots of time for long, leisurely pancake breakfasts, catching up with friends, bike rides, and Sunday Dinners.
Does that all sound okay?
I know that considering adoption can't be easy, and I thank you for taking the time to learn about me. Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have. I am looking forward to hearing from you.
