Hello and thank you for considering me as you consider adoption for your baby. How I admire your strength and love that you are showing by making this hard decision. I hope that by getting to know me a little through this book that you are comforted by knowing that there are people like my family and me who are waiting to shower a child like yours with unconditional love.
I have been blessed to have a loving, supportive family and circle of friends and am in the place in my life when I know I can fulfill my lifelong dream of becoming a mother. From my own experiences growing up I know that the biological connection is just part of being a mother – love also creates the deepest bonds that are fortified through daily acts of care and attention.
I am ready and so excited to be able to provide a child with a stable, enriching and nurturing home and life in which he or she always feels loved, accepted and encouraged to live a meaningful, fulfilling life.
Fun Facts about Dara

Favorite music: There’s current music I enjoy (like Beyonce’s Lemonade) but what really gets me going is “old school” music from the 70’s-90’s, hip hop (from Tribe Called Quest to Calle 13), reggae (from Bob Marley to Beres Hammond), R&B (like Marvin Gaye to Sade) and salsa (from Fania All Stars to Gilberto Santa Rosa)
