Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile. My name is Stefanie and I am very excited about creating a family through adoption.
I am sure I do not know how it feels to be in your shoes at this moment.
I would like to extend my warmest wishes for you. I sincerely believe that you will make the best decision for you and your child. From the bottom of my heart, I wish you both well and extend my utmost gratitude for considering adoption and considering me.
I have a lot to offer a child, all of which I can’t wait to share. I live in a safe, child-friendly neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York. Children play in the courtyard of my complex and in the park one block away. The library is just around the corner. My parents, two sisters, and their families are also very excited to welcome a child into our family through adoption and support my decision 100%. I have a circle of loving friends near by who are supportive and ready to lend a hand. Being a college professor gives me financial stability, flexibility to take care of a sick child, and summers off to play. My job also means I have a strong commitment to education and know what children need in order to get to college and be successful there and beyond. I pursue an active and healthy lifestyle, so I’m ready to keep up with a little one. I know motherhood is sure to throw plenty of challenges at me. I am prepared to meet them.
I look forward to showering a child with love. My heart is ready for the joy of raising a child. I look forward to watching him or her grow, learn and experience the world. I think it is important to encourage the unique person that child becomes. I know how fortunate I am and am grateful for the many blessings life has granted me. I am eager to devote those blessings to a child.
I honor the sacred decision before you. I wish you wisdom, courage, and peace in your mind, heart and soul, now and always.
Fun Facts about Stefanie
Favorite places: My favorite places are green, natural settings with lots of trees and water nearby. I especially love upstate New York near the Hudson River and the lake in Prospect Park in Brooklyn.
Favorite foods: If I’m going out, I like Italian, Thai or Indian. If I’m staying in, I like healthy and fresh. I am a big fan of dessert, mostly baked goods (cookies, cake and brownies).
Favorite holiday: Thanksgiving. I love the time with family, all together for a large, delicious meal, all in the spirit of love and gratitude. (Between you and me: I know pie is the tradition, but I wish we could also have cupcakes for dessert.)
Favorite music: I like rock and pop music, most of it probably on the “older” side. On my iPod, you will find: Peter Gabriel, Adele, Simon and Garfunkel, Prince and Florence and the Machine.
