It is a beautiful spring day in New England as I sit down to write this letter to you. Before even speaking with you, I already admire your courage in considering adoption for your expected child. My prayers are with you and your child. I know that you will make a choice that feels right for you. I am grateful to you for taking the time to read this letter. My hope is that it will give you some information about what I can offer to you and your child. If you choose me as the adoptive mother for your child, you will be helping me to realize the most important dream in my life.
I have given a great deal of thought to my decision to become a single parent. I come from a large and loving extended family and have always wanted to be a mother. My decision to adopt a child is one I have thought long and hard about. I know it is right for me and for the child I will know and love. I look forward to watching his or her excitement the first time he or she glides in a swing, runs through the snow or pets a kitten.
Your child will know the ever present circle of close family and friends who live very close by. He or she will never lack for cousins, aunts, uncles or family friends to provide encouragement, love and a feeling of belonging. Veronica and Jose (dear friends) and Joe and Kathy ( my cousins) both have children and are so looking forward to teaming up with me for the daily rituals of parenthood. Everyone is so excited about welcoming a new baby into our family.
I love children! The children of cousins and friends all know me as a nurturing and fun
person. I hug and praise. I listen and play. Most importantly, I am their most
ardent fan. When my godson, Joseph comes to visit I cradle and rock him to sleep. I
read Good Night Moon to his sister, Danielle. We all enjoy watching Barney and
playing Barbie, zooming the trucks and building with Legos. I so look forward to
sharing this love and affection with a child that I can call my own.
My work is perfect for becoming a mom. My job involves helping companies develop
child-friendly policies in the work place. I am grateful to have work that I love
which provides me with the substantial resources necessary to comfortably single
parent. I also can do much of

family. My parents were originally from Italy and worked hard all their lives to

all my dreams because I always had
I had the good fortune, also, to have grandparents with whom I had a very close
relationship. They took me to the park, the zoo and the movies. Now my mom
looks forward to that same closeness with the child that I raise. She has already

My home is in a pretty country setting. I have a 3 bedroom home with a large
family room spacious and ready for children to play in. My home is close enough to a large
city that we can reach out for concerts and other cultural events, but far away from
traffic and congestion. My
If you honor me with the opportunity to mother your child, I will give her or him
everything possible to become a happy, healthy and caring individual. I am very
committed to teaching a child to be respectful of others and considerate of all of the
gifts given to us in this world. I believe that all children need love and consistency,
but I also know the importance of really listening to a child and spending lots quality
time together. While I am excited about the joys of parenting, I am also
Most importantly, I will always make sure that your child knows you gave him or her the
most precious gift - life. She or he will know that you were so committed to
him/her, that you made the hardest and most loving decision a parent can make: you put
your child's needs first. I so want
