My story is one of creativity and persistence. I was born dancing and am passionate about the power of movement to heal!
After growing up in California, I lived in Ireland and England, and found my passion as a dance movement therapist working with at-risk youth.
I feel very blessed to have a career I love. I am a licensed counselor and board-certified dance movement therapist, and have built a successful private practice to afford the stability and flexibility necessary for raising a family.
I love Atlanta! I have dreamed of making a life here for many years, and made my dream a reality four years ago.
I have close friends who live nearby and are so excited to be aunties & uncles! We like to get together for BBQs, hiking trips, Atlanta United soccer matches & local festivals.
I am also part of a special community of women called Single Mothers by Choice, which includes many mothers and adoptive kids from a wide range of multicultural backgrounds. We support each other with advice and friendship.
It takes a village to raise a child, and I have made sure I have a diverse, strong, and happy village.
I love my cozy home! My favorite room in the house is my kitchen. Making my classics as well as trying out new recipes with my child is definitely a bucket list item for me!
My house is located on a tree-lined street with friendly neighbors from diverse backgrounds. I really enjoy taking daily walks to our local park. There are several swings, two playgrounds, and fun murals that will be so much fun to take my child to for outdoor playtime.
My neighborhood has a lot of kids and activities geared towards families, such as our annual Halloween festival, Easter egg hunt at the local park, and tree lighting ceremony in the village at Christmastime. I am looking forward to my child and I getting together with neighborhood families to share in the fun!
There are so many great things to see and do in Atlanta. The Atlanta Botanical Garden, Atlanta History Center and Fernbank Nature Center are just a few examples of places to explore with my child in our local community. The mountains are a short drive north, while local trails offer easy hiking, scenic picnic spots and educational nature programming.
I am a deeply compassionate, creative and fun-loving person with a zest for life that I cannot wait to share with my little one!
I have a close-knit family, a career that I love, lots of great friends, and a comfortable home in a family-oriented community where I enjoy spending time.
I enjoy performances of all kinds, especially dance, and attend a variety of cultural events throughout the year.
I am excited to give my child a sense of awareness and understanding of different cultures, as that is important to me.
I am adopting because I have always dreamed of having my own family. As I am unable to have children naturally, I felt called to pursue adoption after speaking with dear friends who have adopted.
Their joy and fulfillment continue to inspire me!
Thank you so much for reading about me, and considering me as your child’s adoptive mom. I want you to know that I am prepared for the blessing of raising a child of my own. I am dedicated to honoring your role and giving my child the chance to see how truly loved he or she is by both you and me.
I am a firm believer in nurturing play, cultivating knowledge and honoring nature. For all of these reasons, I believe I have something very special to offer a child.
I will read with my child, I will play with my child, and I will spend quality time with my child. I will be attentive to their challenges and struggles as they grow. Providing a child with the opportunities to feel safe exploring the world, to feel free to develop his or her imagination, and to dream her or his biggest dreams while experiencing unconditional love, would be the greatest gift!
Let’s do this together!
