I know this is the most difficult choice you have had to make in your life. I have so much respect for you and your choice. It takes a very special and strong person to do what you are doing. I respect and admire your courage in making this selfless choice and I hope you feel this way too. I can reassure you that if you choose me, I will be the luckiest mother. You would be the lottery of my life and would change my life in a very special way. Your child would be loved and cared for unconditionally and will have a strong, safe, secure, stable and happy environment with a whole bunch of family and friends to guide, play and grow with.

I am in a great spot in life financially, mentally and physically to bring a special child into my life. I was born and raised in Michigan. I am a college graduate with a Bachelors in Science, Healthcare Management and Administration as well as being a registered/certified medical assistant. I have been in the healthcare world/field for over 10 years and absolutely love it. I work in family medicine as a phone triage RMA/NRCMA. I was raised in a church and am now the Nursery Coordinator. I love scrapbooking. I actually make books for people for weddings, babies, etc. They make great gifts and I really enjoy making them.
I live in Michigan and own a ranch condo with my grandma in a great neighborhood that is quiet and filled with loving, friendly and great neighbors. My house has nice size front, back and side yards. My home is a block away from the school and playground. There is also a walking trail nearby. In the summer time, we have a block party where we all get together and block off the cul-de-sac and have a live band/DJ, bring a dish to pass and just enjoy a great summer night with friends and family. In the winter time, we have a Christmas party at one of the local restaurants with games, presents and great times with friends and family. I am blessed to live in such a great community.

My Family Traditions
On Thanksgiving, my family gathers at grandma's house and we enjoy a homemade dinner and desserts. On Christmas Eve, we go to church as a family. On Christmas and New Year's Eve, we play games and enjoy making memories. In the summer time, we get together to grill and enjoy being outside.
What Led Me To Adoption
My desire and dream to be a mother has always been my goal in life. Choosing adoption has always been in my heart. I believe that adoption isn’t just about becoming a mother; it is God's way of helping a mother who loves their child and sacrifices so that they have a chance at a a better life.

I adopted our son as a newborn after going through 12 years of infertility. Now, 23 years later, I am director at Everlasting Adoptions. Shortly after adopting our son, I started to feel a calling towards adoption. My career as a Human Resource Manager in Corporate America came to an end, and I entered what I now know is my purpose and passion in life — building families through the miracle of adoption.
Working with birthmothers and adoptive parents throughout the US for over 20 years has allowed me to utilize the skills I have been blessed with to serve others. I come to work every day not as a staff member coming to a job from 9 to 5, but as a person who is extremely dedicated and devoted to helping people like you every single day. I feel very blessed to have found my purpose, and I look forward to helping you with your adoption needs!
