Dear Birth Mom,

As a woman, I appreciate your time and I respect your choice to have this baby girl.  I would like to get to know you better.

Thanks again for reading more about me, and I look forward to developing our relationship and hearing more about you and how things are going with the pregnancy and birth process.  I’m ready to start chatting when you are.

Take care,

Wendy

About Wendy

Hi, I’m Wendy. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I’m excited about fulfilling my dream to be a parent, and I’d love to share some things about me with you. While I’ve babysitted other people’s children all throughout my life, and I am also a certified resource/foster parent that has had previous placements reunified with their family, I am grateful that you are considering me to be the parent of your baby girl. She will receive lots of love, hugs, and kisses starting at birth for the rest of her life, and have a warm extended family with my brother and his family, my friends, neighbors, and colleagues to help build a spiritual and moral foundation to make her a confident and thriving adult.

EDUCATION IS KEY

I believe learning and education should never stop once you have completed a formal school process.  I graduated from college and always continue to self-educate through class extensions, books, cultural events, and webinars to learn new skills, and I have a willingness to understand different ideas other than my own.  The child will always have education as a priority in her life leading towards college.  The elementary school is within walking distance of my home, and there are also plenty of local after-school options for activities like soccer, tennis, swimming, dance, and music lessons.

FUR-BABIES ARE CUTE CUDDLE-BUGS

I have two doggies, an adorable pair of maltese dogs that love to cuddle, eat treats, and play.  The baby will grow up in a pet-friendly environment, and she will get to meet the neighborhood dogs (and even some cats and a pig, yup, you read that right, a pig) while we take our doggies for walks every day.  There will be plenty of visits to the local zoo and aquarium regularly to learn about all types of animals large and small.

I’D BE A WORKING MOTHER

My career is an important aspect of my life, and as a successful marketing strategist for brands and companies all over the world, it is how I have been able to travel extensively to over 22 countries (including Peru, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Spain, France, Germany, UK and many more) and form many of my close friends over the years.  My workplace is flexible and supportive of my decision to adopt, and this will enable me to always put family first and take care of the needs of the child.  I have daycare and family/neighbor resources readily available to help me take care of the child when I am at work during the day.

HOME IS MY HAPPY PLACE

I live in a quiet urban neighborhood that also has other families with small children and babies.  The baby will have her own room and bathroom, and she will get to meet the other kids in the building and neighborhood and have play dates.  During the week (what I consider school nights), I typically enjoy watching the latest TV show that everyone talks about the next day, and I listen to music (mostly pop and 80s with some classical and movie soundtracks thrown in).  The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, and The Greatest Showman are currently on my favorites and go on repeat quite a bit along with Ariana Grande, Maroon 5, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry.   My weekends are spent with family or doing activities like hiking, going to the park with my dogs, and Sundays are usually my “cooking time” when I prepare and cook my meals for the week or do experimental cuisine or baking.  I have been making my grandmother’s recipe for chicken soup for years, and I take cooking classes from time to time to learn different techniques.  I’ve mastered the art of pureed foods and the baby will receive plenty of homemade healthy meals as she moves from formula to solid foods.

YOU’VE GOT TO HAVE FAITH AND ENJOY THE HOLIDAYS

While I was raised Jewish, I do not practice Judaism regularly.  I’m spiritually open-minded and I believe there is a higher power that is working in our universe and prayer is a very powerful tool.  My grandmother on my mom’s side was Catholic, and my sister-in-law’s family has many different religions. Everyone needs to have faith in themselves and their community, and my family understands and accept all beliefs.  I do celebrate some of the Jewish holidays as well as Christmas and Easter with my brother and his family.

MY COMMITMENT TO ADOPTION

Building a family is so much more than a biological process, and each participant is important no matter how small or large a role they play.  I truly believe open adoption is the healthiest and most beneficial approach for a child, and it empowers everyone to make informed decisions.
