Seeking to Be a Mama for the First Time to a Little One!
Dear Expectant Mother/Family,
I know this must be a scary and confusing time for you and you want to make the right decision without judgement. A decision made out of love is a decision that is selfless. A child needs to know they are loved from every direction. I will never paint a child’s biological family in a bad light. It's not healthy for the child and it's not fair to you. As a teacher, this is a constant practice to speak positively and build confidence in a child’s value.
I have always seen myself adopting even when I was a little girl. I was diagnosed with Poly-cystic Ovarian Syndrome and have a high chance of infertility. 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 come 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.
I have a Master’s degree in education with additional certifications in the areas of Mathematics, Language Arts, & Special Education. I have a passion toward the Latino, Polynesian, and Native American cultures that started when I was a little girl. I am also a Christian who believes in loving God and loving others with kindness and compassion.I grew up in a loving family in a small southern town in Missouri. I still live close to that area in the beautiful Ozarks region. I love the beauty of nature and traveling during summer breaks. Some activities I enjoy are drawing, spending time with family & friends, watching tv/movies, visiting parks, doing church activities, swimming, hiking, baking.I could see myself taking my child to National Parks, on scenic hikes, camping, and kayaking during summer breaks. I also envision sitting down at the table to play board games, make crafts, and attending their school activities throughout the year. I have a large extended family and we like to do lots of holiday traditions together such as making Christmas cookies, looking at lights, watching fireworks, big holiday meals, buying Easter outfits, watching parades etc. Getting to know someone is so difficult through a letter, but my personality is gentle, compassionate, nurturing, academic and creative. I am a task oriented person, and I try to be positive and inspiring to others and make the world a better place. You may view my Facebook page if you want a better sense of the real me outside of this letter to know who I am.
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 you & your baby. I am willing to travel for the birth & adoption. I have faith that God will place you together perfectly for a match!
Thanks, April Morton
