Dear Birthmother,

Momma to momma, let’s talk!

You want to give your baby the best life possible. That’s the first thing we have in common! In my adoption training and research, my favorite quote is this: “A child in a single parent’s household will be that parent’s top priority and greatest love at all times.” I have the time, energy, and resources to provide your baby with the best life possible, including a loving family, a beautiful home life, and a top-notch education.

The most important thing in the world to me is to become a momma. I cannot have a biological child, but that gives me both the determination and opportunity to adopt a child and shower him or her with amazing opportunities. My job would be to love and protect your baby as my own, raise them to love others and pay it forward, and provide life experiences that will guide them through adulthood.

Trusting someone with the life of your child is a major decision. I pray for your heart to find peace in the family you choose. If you choose me to parent your baby, I will be completely, 100% committed to the process and to your child. A favorite bedtime story I will tell your baby is about a wonderful woman who chose to give him or her life and chose to give me the beautiful gift of a child to love. You will always hold a great place of honor in our hearts!

With love and gratitude,


About Me

10 seconds… That’s all the time I have to capture your attention and tell you about me. 9… The most important thing in the world to me is to be a momma. 8… My family and I have so much love, time, and resources to devote to this child (“spoiler” alert). 7… I’m a chemist and published author. Education, safety, and captivating life experiences are important to me. 6 seconds… I have a blast with the kiddos in my church while teaching them to love God and love others. 5…Golden Rings… Christmas will be over the top, making beautiful, lasting memories. 4… The beach is my happy place. 3 more seconds… My puppy has already trained me to wake up for 3 a.m. feedings every day, so I’m totally ready for that schedule. 2… My momma is always my biggest fan and role model. Drum roll please… 1… I really hope you continue reading my profile. ?


My Home

My home’s greatest feature is the built-in grandmomma. My mom and I share a home, which means two times the love, guidance, and trusted babysitting! Our house is designed with a divided floor plan: My mom has her “wing” of the house and I have mine, with the kitchen and family areas in the middle. Our home is safely tucked away in a cul-de-sac and has a privacy fence and an enormous backyard where I envision having a swingset when the time comes. Plenty of family-friendly activities are nearby, and the school district is top notch. I have a puppy named Oliver. He loves to play, cuddle, and eat. My mom has a dog named Sophie. She’s older now, so she’s rather fond of napping.

Extended Family

My Extended Family

My parents both had a strong work ethic and led by example. My mom retired after 32 years of service to the same institution, and I have been with my company for 16 years now. She is a people person with the gift of gab.

Every year, my mom, my aunt, and I become beach bums for a week. I cannot wait to add a new traveler and can already feel the excitement of building a sandcastle, playing minigolf, trying out new restaurants, and finding the best ice cream parlor at the beach.

Raised in the country, I learned early that each person has a purpose. We all have strengths and weaknesses, but together, we cannot be broken. My cousins may drive me insane, but they are as close as siblings. My nephew has me wrapped around his little finger. He puts in his birthday cake orders every year with elaborate directions and expects everything to be 100% homemade by Auntie Ton.
We love family game nights, love to eat, and love making excuses to celebrate life. Your baby will be a welcome addition to all festivities.


What Led Me To Adoption

Life happens! My Mister Right apparently got stuck in traffic, and our paths have yet to cross. I was also faced with the reality that I physically was not able to carry a child. Adoption has been on my heart for years, so I knew adoption was my path forward. The spark that ignited my adoption journey was watching family friends have their dreams come true through adoption. They prayed for a child, and God answered x3. Those children have thrived with their new family. They have been taught to love people and love God. One day your child will have questions about adoption. I find comfort in knowing he or she will have friends to look up to and talk with about those topics.
