Thank you for taking the time to learn about us. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Whether adoption ends up being part of your journey or not, I hope you find peace as you walk through this difficult time.
For their privacy I have not included any identifying pictures of Miles birth family in this profile. I am grateful they have asked me to be his mom, and also accepted us into their lives. Adoption is not easy. It is a complex mix of emotion and relationships. But I do my best every day to make sure Miles knows where he comes from, who he is, and how much they love him.
I am open to many levels of contact, and happy to discuss what you imagine our relationship to look like.
Just as parents can love multiple kids, children have just as much capacity to love multiple sets of parents.

Who I Am
I grew up in Iowa, and moved to Atlanta, GA in 2011. I always knew I wanted to be a mom, but by 2012, Mr. Right hadn't shown up, so I decided to become a Single Mom by Choice (SMC) through adoption. Miles was born in 2015.
I have worked hard to build my village here among other SMC's. We get together often and support each other. My parents live in Florida and come visit many times a year. I also have a cousin and his family here in Atlanta.
My dad came to town this weekend and so of course we ventured out into Atlanta activities and hit up the Children’s Museum…on a cold Saturday… whoohooo kids everywhere lol . But we had a blast. And can’t pass a photobooth without documenting our silly faces. My dad (aka Boppa) is just about one of Miles’ most favorite people. He says ‘Boppa is my best friend’. Those 2 are peas in a pod. It was a great visit.
I am a walking dead fan and go to the convention every year. Its pretty cool to meet the actors. This year Miles went with me and was so excited he got to wear his Halloween costume early. (He was catboy from PJ Masks). We met Khary Payton who plays King Ezekiel and he was quite taken with Miles. Even gave him a stuffed tiger (if you don’t watch the show he has a pet tiger named Sheva ) Miles thought it was cool and he told him he could keep it. So that just made Miles day. He asked later to go back and say thank you again to him. Amazing day.
