Hello! Thank you for taking the time to read about me and my family as you consider the possibility of making an adoption plan for your child. I am an American who grew up in Europe, in a number of different countries. I came back to the United States while I was in high school, then I went to college in New Hampshire and graduate school in New York. I’ve been working in nonprofit organizations in New York ever since. I have a house in a quiet neighborhood with good schools, across from a conservation area.
Education, music, travel, and the outdoors are lifelong loves for me – I’m always interested in learning something new. Feeding curiosity is a joy, and you just never know what experience will enable you to come up with a creative response to the issues that come up in daily life.
The decision you are making now is so difficult. But I believe strongly that whatever decision you make, it will be the right one for you and your child because it comes from a place of love. I know the others I’ve met on this journey agree. You are not alone.
I hope this profile will give you a good sense of my world, and all the people who are standing ready to open their hearts to a new member of our family. When all is said and done, the value I believe is most important is kindness. Kindness to others, and kindness to yourself, can give you the strength and guidance to navigate most puzzles in life, large and small.
