I’m Tonya from Pennsylvania and I am so excited to become a parent through the amazing gift of adoption. I appreciate your bravery as you look into adoption and recognize the struggle you are probably feeling.
I have always wanted to a mother, to support children as they grow and learn about life. I come from a solid loving family and want to create a safe loving home for my family. I am a nurse at a local hospital and thoroughly enjoy helping people through the health and social struggles they are experiencing. One joy of nursing is that my job is flexible and allows me to have plenty of family time, weekend trips, and vacations.
I have lived in Indiana, Illinois, and North Carolina. I moved back to my home area 4 years ago after my marriage ended. I struggled to make sense of things for a while but realized that my top priority is to be a parent. I now live in a farm house about a mile from my parents and within 10 miles of many relatives. I attend a wonderful, small, church. Have a good group of supportive friends that come for game nights and go to events with me. I love to garden. I have been raising most of my own food the past few years, including chickens, which I keep in my yard. I also love to sing, travel, and try new foods and activitites. I weave rugs, bake bread and cakes, and make quilts.
Although I am not married, I have a stable job, a wonderful family, and lots of support around me. I feel that I can offer the love and security a child needs. I would be an active, supportive, honest, loving, and stable parent.
I wish you the very best with your journey!
