BAGS ARE PACKED, HOMESTUDY IS APPROVED, READY TO ADD TO MY FAMILY TODAY!

I'm an experienced mother of an adopted son and will be here to support you every step of the way, before and after the adoption. Adoption has profoundly impacted my life in countless ways, including the incredible experience of becoming an adoptive mother. As I envisioned the family I want to be a part of, my priority was to provide a nurturing, safe, and loving home for a child, rather than focusing on a biological connection. With my deep personal connection to adoption, I chose this path to grow my family and it has proven to be the most rewarding decision, filling my life with abundant love.

I am wholeheartedly open to sharing my story with you, and I'm eager to learn about yours. I may not know what has led you to this moment or where life will take you, but I believe that sometimes our greatest challenges can transform into incredible adventures, and our deepest sorrows can give birth to the most profound joy. Your story is unique and remarkable, and if you were to choose me to raise your child, it would be an honor to include them in the pages of our lives—celebrating your legacy.

I believe that finding the right balance of involvement, tailored to the unique needs and desires of the birth family, can be in the child's best interest. I am committed to respecting your preferences, whether that means maintaining close connections, sharing updates and milestones, or honoring your wish for more privacy. My son's birth families and extended families play a significant role in our lives, but I understand that every situation is unique. I share this to demonstrate my commitment to the well-being of any child I am fortunate enough to parent, and my willingness to adapt to the level of support and involvement that works best for everyone involved.

I understand that considering adoption must require immense courage and selflessness on your part. At this extraordinary junction, we meet as strangers, yet we have the opportunity to create a new path together. Everyone faces life's challenges in their own way, and I cannot presume to know what you may be experiencing as you contemplate an adoption plan. However, I hope to offer you my support in any way that aligns with your needs and desires.

I truly appreciate the significance of birth family connections, and I am open to any level of support and involvement that you feel comfortable with. Whether it's maintaining close ties, sharing updates and milestones, or respecting your desire for more distance, I believe in honoring your preferences and fostering a relationship that works best for all of us. We have frequent visits with some of my son's extended birth family, and share photos and updates with others, understanding and respecting their unique story. I wholeheartedly believe that a child can never receive too much love, and our unique family is a testament to that.

I cherish the qualities passed down from my parents – my mom's warmth and my dad's entrepreneurial spirit. Together, these traits inspired me to establish my own marketing analytics company more than 15 years ago. One incredible aspect of my career is the opportunity to explore the world, something I'm truly passionate about. I adore sun-soaked beaches, where I can dive into the waves and ride my boogie board. My son, Jack, shares my love for adventure and eagerly looks forward to every "swimming beach" trip. When I'm not in the water, I enjoy engaging in various sports, with tennis being a personal favorite. But what brings me the most joy these days is spending time outdoors with my son, Jack, and sharing our love for adventure and play!

Adoption Diary

I am pre-screened by Adoption & Beyond and have a current home study.

Their comprehensive screening and education process took months to complete and was very thorough. They have screened me and verified that I have completed the following:

• Passed criminal background checks, including child abuse and neglect background checks
• Completed adoptive parent preparation classes
• Attended pre-adoption counseling sessions
• Vetted to be medically, financially and mentally stable
• Passed a comprehensive home visit with a social worker who assured our home is a safe environment for a baby and meets state regulations.

Thank You for Visiting Our Adoption Profile

We want to thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your child.

We truly appreciate your kindness and strength and look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Michelle in the Midwest
