I grew up in a close knit farming family. I went off to college and law school, and much to my surprise, ended up getting into a career back home that I absolutely love. I spend as much time as I can with my daughter and the rest of my family, it is important to me that family bonds are strong. We love to laugh and be silly together. I am social person, who likes to experience new things and believes that our role as a parent is to give our children love, structure and stability so that they have a solid footing as they figure out exactly who they are supposed to be.

Dear Birthmother

Hello! It is hard for me to explain how brave I think you are. I recognize that this is a stressful time for you that is full of emotions, questions and worry. I admire your willingness to consider adoption and how much you love your child. It is important for you to find the family that you feel is the best fit for both you and your child. I am committed to making sure that you are comfortable with my family and confident that your child will be loved and nurtured, being raised into the person they were meant to become, knowing their story, their history, and how much they were loved since the very beginning.

Reason to Adopt

Adoption has always been a part of my life. Becoming a family, or being part of a family, has never meant a biological connection to me. As I grew up, I just always knew that my family would grow through adoption. Family is love - love is family. The love I have (and will have) for my child has nothing to do with whether they look like me, it is about who they are inside and the person they are becoming.

Our History with Adoption

I was adopted as an infant, and raised in a home where my parents were always very upfront and honest with me and answered any questions they could. About 5 years ago, I began the adoption process, this time as an adoptive parent, and welcomed my daughter. I know from firsthand experience that all adopted kids have questions and I know how important it is to be honest and truthful about their story. There is a diverse spectrum of situations in the adoption community, so creating an open environment for discussion, growth and support is important. Adoption is a beautiful way to create a family. I have made an effort to include people in my ''circle'' who are familiar with adoption - whether as adoptees, adoptive parents, or birthparents. There is a diverse spectrum of situations in the adoption community, so creating an open environment for discussion, growth and support is important.

My Community & Family

I live in a fairly small rural community - however, it is a vibrant town full of young people and young families. All of my family lives nearby and we are very close. I grew up with my cousins as some of my best friends and all of us now live in the same community and get together often. My parents live in the same community and love their role as grandma and grandpa, keeping their grandkids a few days during the week and attending all of their events and activities. My sister, her husband and their three children also live here and we try to have as much cousin time as possible.
