I was born and raised in New York City and I currently live in New Jersey.
I had a wonderful childhood, with loving and supportive parents who were great role models and I want to provide a similar experience to a child of my own.
I am very family oriented and have a strong support system composed of both my family and many good friends.
They are extremely excited and supportive of me adopting and will be actively involved in my child's life.
I am very close to my niece and nephew, who I think of as my own children. They are a very big part of my life and are extremely excited about me expanding my family through adoption.
I have a great group of friends of various ages, cultural and ethnic backgrounds, races and genders, whom I have formed close bonds with and consider family. They will be involved in my child's life and serve as role models.
I love spending time with family and friends, cooking, swimming, fishing, traveling, enjoying music and the arts, and learning about new things and cultures. I also enjoy spending time with them at home, going out to concerts, museums, restaurants, shows, the movies, beaches or joining them at their children's school performances or sporting events.
I love animals and have a very sweet and lovable rescue
puppy named Flora.
I have a wonderful and rewarding job in healthcare, a supportive team, a flexible schedule and a good work-life balance.
I love all holidays, but my favorite holiday has to be Christmas!
Some of my fondest childhood memories are of family and friends gathering and celebrating Christmas.
I love the lights, decorating the tree, drinking hot cocoa with little marshmallows, and singing Christmas carols; but most of all, I love all the family, joy and laughter that fill the holiday season.
I can't wait to cook our traditional dishes with my child, and add some new ones to our list; Bake and decorate cookies together; Decorate our home; and
Enjoy the gift of giving with our family and friends.
I can't wait to share these joyous moments, and create new memories and traditions with my child!
I live in a family-centric, safe neighborhood with good schools, lots of young children and growing families. There are also many beautiful parks and beaches to explore and enjoy.
I have a comfortable home with a spacious, gated backyard, a child-safe pool, and a playhouse, with plenty of room for children to play.
I am very loving, loyal, dedicated, reliable, hardworking, patient, compassionate, generous, and honest; and I love children.
I have a great deal of love to share, and I am kind, nurturing and patient.
I will make sure your child knows where they came from, that they were always loved and that you made a very difficult and selfless decision in allowing me to be their parent.
I will do everything in my power to raise them to be kind, strong, confident, generous, humble and respectful.
I will provide your child with a good, well-rounded, education; introduce them to the arts, music, sports, nature, travel, other cultures and the simple joys of life.
I will do my best to ensure that your child has a childhood filled with love, wonder, adventure, learning and joy.
I will encourage your child's dreams; provide them with the tools, guidance and support needed to help those dreams become a reality. Their health and happiness will be my priority.
