April: Looking for a Miracle

Waiting for you with an open heart & a prayer! ¡Te espero con el corazón abierto y una oració!

Dear Birth Mother/family,

I know this must be a scary and confusing time for you and you want to make the right decision. I believe that your decision is both brave and generous. Whether I am chosen or not, I am grateful that you are making this choice to make someone's dream come true. I think you must also have the questions: "Will they love my child the same if they have their own?" & "What are they going to say about me to the child later on?" I can honestly say that I don't think I could ever have bias against a child no matter what their DNA says....And every child needs to know they are loved from every direction. I would never paint their biological family in a bad light. It's not healthy for the child and it's not fair to you. I will continually tell them the love you have for them and that you care about them and who they become no matter how far way you may be. I strongly believe in this because I believe it to be true, and I know that every word you speak to a child plays a part in how they feel about themselves.

I have always seen myself adopting even when I was a little girl. Now, I am a 38 year old single, woman diagnosed with Poly-cystic Ovarian Syndrome and may not even be able to have children. I always thought I would fall in love, get married and have children by this time in my life. But the right guy has still not came along and dating has proved to be more difficult as time goes on. I feel time to be a mother is slowly passing by and I know my life will never feel complete without a child in it.

As I began this journey, I was overwhelmed by the amount of love and support by family and friends who were excited about my desire to grow a family. Reading over their reference letters (available to you if desired), gave me so much courage and encouragement to become an adoptive mother.

I am looking for a newborn from a HISPANIC, POLYNESIAN or AMERICAN INDIAN descent. I have absolutely no prejudice towards other ethnicities, I just feel God has called me to adopt a baby from these origins. It's hard to put into words how I feel this is my destiny. I have a deeply embedded passion toward these cultures that started when I was a little girl and I felt God was calling me to adopt. When I was about 8, I opened a Sesame Street book and saw a page in another language (Spanish) and I just got this thought that one day I would be a mom to someone else's girl or boy who come from a different way of life like this. In 2008, at about 26, God spoke to me about adopting a baby. He gave me a vision of a beautiful, brown-skinned baby in my arms and told me that he was removing all red tape and hindrances for adoption for me. Just a few minutes later, a pastor whom I had never met prayed over me and said he heard God say that he was removing all red tape and hindrances for me to adopt. In that moment I just knew God was calling me to adopt a baby from the regions I was so passionate about. My spirit leaps inside me and I feel a tugging in my heart when I see the beauty of the people, environment, music or celebrations from these regions. I have known most of my life that God has called a special child into my life with these cultures, that I am called to give a future, a home, and a never-ending love. I have learned languages, went to classes, ordered cultured kids books, been on mission trips, and made many face-to-face friends within these areas. I know the importance of keeping heritage alive and am excited to incorporate that as they grow up. I am excited for a beautiful mother who will also come into my life and be a part of this story of how God made it all come together. I'm sure I don't know how to say all the right things to explain this, but my heart means well and I know that there is a child out there that I am meant to be there for and fall in love with. I am taking a step out in faith and letting him have control of it from there. ​

I am interested in a semi-open adoption where I would welcome the chance to share pictures, updates and letters throughout their life. I want to give you that sense of connection and peace if you want that. However, I understand that everyone feels differently and would be open to other options based on your desires.

I grew up in a loving family in a small town of Missouri. I still live close to that area in the beautiful Ozarks region. I love the beauty of nature and traveling during summer breaks. I could see myself taking my child to National Parks, on scenic hikes, camping, and kayaking. I also envision sitting down at the table to play board games, make crafts, decorate Christmas cookies and eating meals. I am a teacher at a wonderful school in the area. I am a Christian who believes in loving God and loving others with kindness and compassion. I hope to teach my child to make decisions that he or she will feel proud of and to always do their best to become the person they want to be.

As you go through the process of selecting a family, please know that I support your decision. If I am chosen, I will cherish this child. I will surround them with unconditional love and affection. This child will have opportunities, a home full of love, laughter, and joy. I'll provide safety, a good home, education, an example of good character, family & friends and support them as they develop their own personality. I have so much love to give and hope that you would consider the chance for me to share it with your baby. I am willing to travel for the adoption. I have faith that God will place you together perfectly for a match!

Who I Am

I grew up in southern Missouri in a small town. I was raised in a loving, but blue collar two-parent family living paycheck to paycheck. I was a shy child who wanted to please people around me but came out of my shell as I got older. I grew up with one younger brother and enjoying big family gatherings and holiday traditions. I found a love for education and excelled in school. I worked hard and graduated as a Valedictorian of my class. I went on to become a teacher and hold a Master's degree as an Elementary Math Specialist. I currently work in the special education department and love helping students make math connections or learn to read for the first time!

I am a Christian, attend church regularly and am devoted to my faith. I believe that includes living a life of integrity and showing kindness to others. I also believe being a Christian doesn't mean you must cut yourself off from the world, or keep your child from participating in childhood memories.

I have always wanted to be a Mom. It has been a longing desire. Adopting has always been something I have always dreamed of, but I thought I would fall in love and get married first. We can make plans, but sometimes God has other intentions.

Adoption Diary

Prayers

Dear Father, I ask that wherever my forever child is out there, you would be with them and their mother.  Keep them healthy and blessed.  Cover them in goodness and speak peace over the family.  Bring us together in the right time and with the still, small voice that gives them peace to know that their child will always be loved and cared for.  I pray for you to not only care for the child but also for the mother giving her a blessed life ahead.  That you would arrange the future relationship details and a friendship that you desire.  I don’t always say the right thing or know how to present myself, but I pray that my future child’s family sees my heart and knows the love I have for them. In Jesus name, Amen

Religion vs. Rejection

I recently posted a prayer for someone who was going through a hard time. It was immediately attacked and rejected.  I guess I’m a little naive to the way the world works. I didn’t realize that so many people were offended by prayer.  I know that it can be a sensitive topic but encouragement can come in so many forms.  Don’t get me wrong, I have seen religion be off balanced and weird, but it doesn’t have to be that way.  It can really offer a sense of peace when things are out of your hands, or bring people together after a disaster. I guess I’m just writing this because my heart is too do good, to love people, to want to share hope with them.  Maybe you are also looking at my profile and turned off by the fact that I believe in God.  I just want to ask you to reconsider and I want to apologize on behalf of genuine Christians if you have had bad experiences.  Christianity should make everyone feel loved, encouraged, and guided toward positive choices.  Just wanted to share that. Thanks for listening.
