If you had to live on an RV or sailboat for the rest of your life, which would it be?

It would be a sailboat as I love the feel of being carried by the water and soothed by the sound of the waves as I sleep.

If you could choose one type of food to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be?

I hope you are...

open to receiving a warm welcome into my family and my heart.

Ingrid

If I could change one thing about the World, it would be...

a more equitable place for all.

Ingrid

We are the best choice because…

I am the best choice if my profile speaks to you. I have a big heart, a curious mind, and a generous spirit. As a therapist I possess the skills to help a child navigate the journey of being adopted.

Ingrid

My neighborhood is a good place to raise a family because…

it's a diverse artistic community that is interested in supporting local business and providing family-oriented activities like our annual fall festival, Halloween parade and Christmas tree lighting!

Ingrid

What is the best word to describe your family?

Musical! We enjoy all kinds of music, especially listening to my mom play the piano. It's so much fun to dance with my nephews to my brother's Irish music, as well as play Latin tunes to dance to!

Ingrid

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you look at the night sky?

How much fun it would be to share my fascination of astronomy with my child each night.

Ingrid

My favorite place in the World is...

I have so many places I love-however, my home would have to be my favorite place! I love being surrounded by trees, while knowing the city is just around the corner.

Ingrid

When you argue, what’s it about?

Something I feel strongly about-like equality for all, or when I don't feel heard.

Ingrid

If I could have dinner with anyone -- dead or alive -- I would pick...

My grandma Rose who passed when I was only two years old. She fed poor children during WW II. She made me a chair while she was blind that I now have in the nursery ready to pass down to my child.

Ingrid

If you had to pick a famous person to play you in a movie, who would it be?

Julia Roberts

Ingrid

I would never...

Harm your child or disrespect you in any way.

Ingrid

Do you consider yourself religious or spiritual?

Spiritual. I was raised in a church environment and have respect for those who find solace there. I personally find the most peace when in nature.

Ingrid

Favorite season and why?

Spring! I love the smell and the colors of everything blooming. I am inspired by the promise of new life. I enjoy the warmth and longer nights after the cold and darkness of winter.

Ingrid

The most special thing I own is...

My home!
