My Promise to You
I promise to love my child unconditionally and will always be grateful for this journey. I will provide him or her with safety and security along with boundaries and values. I look forward to teaching him or her about love, family, laughter, respect and communication. My child will always have the freedom to reach for his or her dreams.
You will have a very special place in my heart and my family. Thank you for your time and consideration! You can reach me anytime and I look forward to hearing from you.
Fun Facts About Me
Tripoley, Uno, Payday, Risk, Croquet, Badminton
Reading, watching movies, baking, musical theater and concerts, board games, spending time with family and friends
I am a West Virginia native now living in North Carolina. I grew up in a loving family with supportive parents, an older sister who looked out for me and a younger brother who affectionately put up with me. We had so much fun growing up and we have many wonderful childhood memories of family bike rides and roller skating in the basement.
I look forward to creating similar special moments with my child that we will both cherish. I have wanted to be a mom for many years and can hardly wait to share my life with a child.
I work as a computer programmer at a local private university. I am blessed to have a stable and rewarding career with a flexible schedule. I also have a part-time job with a local hair salon as the Business Manager. For future opportunities, this is a great way to gain experience running a business.
Since I’m able to do most of my work from home, I can work around my child’s schedule. I will love taking my child on fun trips after school to feed the ducks at Lake Mary Nell or watch the latest Disney matinee.
It Takes a Village to Raise a Child
Family is very important to me and has been a great source of strength throughout the years. We are all very close and everyone is looking forward to sharing their love with my child. Along with my family, I am blessed to have a network of awesome friends that truly enrich my life and I know they will do the same for my child. Together with my family, they make up my village and have been so supportive of my decision to adopt.
My mom and her partner, Kim, live in West Virginia and are looking forward to frequent visits with their first grandchild. Mom and I share a love of practical jokes. I can already imagine her and my child banding together to trick some unsuspecting person, hopefully not me. My dad also lives in West Virginia and is planning to move to North Carolina to spoil his grandchild. He is a great teacher and I am looking forward to watching him teach my little one all kinds of wonderful things. Grandpa will love teaching his grandchild to gently catch fireflies as they light up the night sky.
I am also blessed to have my sister and brother as my two closest friends. My sister, Vicki, and her husband, Don, live nearby and visit often for family dinners and game nights. My brother, Steven, lives with me along with his two dogs, Sally and Pilgrim. Sally and Pilgrim are very loving and will be great companions for my child. They will love having a new playmate! Steven, Vicki and Don will be wonderful role models for their niece or nephew and they are excited to spend time with my child. I can’t wait to see my child snuggled in Aunt Vicki’s lap reading a funny book or building skyscrapers out of blocks with Uncle Steven.
Where I Live
My home is in a safe, child-friendly neighborhood with plenty of children who will be wonderful playmates for my child. There’s a great park nearby with a playground and big, open fields. I hope my child will love trips with mommy to play on the swings and slides or play fetch with the dogs.
I am also near larger cities with access to exciting museums, the zoo, theaters and lots of fun, educational activities. I have season tickets to the Durham Performing Arts Center and I can’t wait to see the wonder on my child’s face the first time he or she sees The Lion King musical live!
Just For Fun
I enjoy traveling and have visited many places like London, Argentina and even Chile! I hope that my child will enjoy traveling with mommy to see Big Ben in London, exploring the Grand Canyon and swimming in the Pacific Ocean.
In addition to traveling, I also like to do activities that are close to home. I love watching movies, going to concerts, baking and riding roller coasters. I look forward to feeling the wind blowing against our faces as we go down a big hill on an exciting roller coaster ride together!
