Dear Expectant Parent(s),
I’m Annah, and I’ve imagined becoming a mom through adoption since I was a little girl. I recently found out that I cannot have biological children. For me, this was okay and not something to be sad about. It’s just the way it was meant to be. I am excited for the opportunity to welcome a baby into my home and my family.
I know there are infinite reasons that you may be considering making an adoption plan, and I have no judgements about any of those possible reasons. I am sensitive to your feelings and needs. I am open to maintaining connections with you throughout their life, but also understand if you have other thoughts in mind. It takes great strength and courage to consider adoption. I believe that everything happens for a reason and without you, I wouldn’t have the opportunity to be a mom, so I am grateful.
I want to give my child the best and happiest life they can possibly have. However, I know that life is not always about baking cookies and building tent forts. There will be challenges; but I’m in it for the long haul. I’ve experienced some hard times in my life, but I’ve become more caring and resilient as a result. I work as a physical therapist and work exclusively with babies and children with special needs. I’ve had opportunity to work with a variety of families and have learned a lot from being a part of their lives. Every child is unique and I will love my baby unconditionally. I will support them no matter what.
I understand there may be some curiosity about how I would support and raise a child as a single parent. My family would describe me as a kind, patient, and responsible person. They may also say I’m a big goofball sometimes! I’m strong, independent, and fun. I don’t sweat the small stuff. I think before jumping into major life decisions and I am financially stable. I’m so excited to pass on all the great things my parents and family have given to me. My baby will always be my first priority and they will have all my love.
I hope that the rest of my profile will show that I will offer a baby an enriched life full of adventure, family, friends, happiness, stability and unconditional love! Thank you for reading it, and I welcome any questions you have.
I love to be outside! I can’t wait to show my child all of the incredible things that nature has to offer. The water feels like home to me. Whether it’s paddling and fishing in my kayak or walking along the coast and hanging out at the beach, it brings me peace.
I went to college to become a physical therapist and graduated with my doctorate degree. I’ve always been connected to working with children, so it was natural that I specialized in pediatrics. It is active and hands-on work. One of the kids I work with wanted to go fishing in a “real boat” but didn’t have the resources. I modified my kayak so he could safely sit with me and we went fishing!
I feel good at the end of the day knowing I’ve made a positive difference. I’m passionate about what I do.
My family is a priority for me, I love them with all my heart. I’m very close with my parents. They live right up the road from me and we see each other almost daily. I can picture me and my child walking to their house for visits with Gramma and Grandad. I have one older sister who can’t wait to be an aunt.
I have a big black lab named Percy and a Bearded dragon named Berta. They are both so sweet. Percy is well behaved and loves going on adventures. I rescued Berta from being a classroom pet. She was quite sick, but is doing really well now. She and Percy are best friends. Percy loves children and both Percy and Berta have been gentle with everyone they meet.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile. I hope it gives you a glimpse into my life and the love that I have to offer a child.
I have respect for your decision to consider an adoption plan. My dream to become a mom couldn’t become a reality without you.
Any child that joins my family will be loved unconditionally and be supported to accomplish all of their dreams. They will have opportunities to grow and become anything they want, but they will also know who they are, where they came from, and the love that their birth mother had for them. I am open for them to be able to have connections with their birth family if that feels good for everyone.
