Hi, I'm Vanessa. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me as a potential parent for your child. I'm a single woman living with my dogs in Brooklyn and working in Manhattan as a hip-hop music magazine and website editor. For over two decades, I have dedicated my time to my career; this is partially what has held me back from having a child. For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to be a mother but I always pushed it off to focus on my career or waiting for the right man. Time flew by, and recently I realized I am at the tail-end of my baby-making days and even though I don’t have the right significant other, I’m at the point in my life that I’m ready to be a mother. As I explored my options, I connected with adoption. I don’t want to miss out on having my own family and adoption will offer the opportunity to love, cherish, and raise a child. I know I can give a child an amazing life where they will want for nothing, and be deeply loved and supported.

I’ve worked tremendously hard during my career and have had a lot of fun along the way. I love what I do. I am a competent, successful, creative, driven, compassionate, and
loving person. My life has been my job, parents, brother, friends, and dogs, Tina and Moon. I love all animals but especially dogs. I lived in Harlem for over 15 years and reside in Brooklyn now. I have gotten the opportunity to travel a good amount for work, which I have appreciated and enjoyed. I’m very
happy with life, but one of the main
things I want tremendously and have not been able to achieve is being a
