Hello, Beautiful!!

My name is Bernadette and I am ecstatic to be on this adoption journey. There has never been any shortage of love, support, encouragement, or laughter in my life. My whole family (and friends who have become family) are bursting at the seams to welcome the newest member to our crew. I am so grateful you are here! I’ve given a lot of thought to how I can describe why I am drawn to adoption, and the honest truth is, I have a hard time putting it into words. It’s a feeling, but it is also so much more than that. It is a calling. I feel in my heart that it is what I am meant to do. What I find so beautiful about adoption is that it is entirely built on love. Your love and my love for this precious child.

Who I Am

Creating memories with my family and friends is the most important thing to me and my favorite way to do that is by trying all sorts of different experiences together. My dining room table is always full of loved ones and the laughter can be heard from across the street. From game nights to Tai Chi to watching movies on my outdoor projector, we do it all. It is important to me to have a home where everyone always feels welcomed, valued, and loved. I claimed hosting duty many years ago and my door is always open. I never want anyone to ever feel alone.

Water Lantern Festival

I felt like I was being placed in a scene from Tangled with all the beautiful lanterns with sweet messages glowing in the water. Messages of hope and love. I pray everyone’s dreams come true. It was such a special night to be a part of. I was speechless staring at the spectacular sight. It was moving to hear some of the stories of others at the Water Lantern Festival. Plus, they were rocking an epic playlist and we had perfect weather. In Asian cultures, it is believed that your ancestors can influence and guide the direction of your future. So people write messages and wishes on lanterns before lighting them and letting the river carry them away. They hope their wishes are seen and granted. I think that is beautiful. I was honored to write messages to my ancestors and I hope they saw them. I pray my wish for motherhood will be granted.

Homemade Dog Treats

Ruff! Ruff! Lots of tail wagging this morning from the pupper as she devoured some homemade dog treats. Wish making human treats was this easy!
