Complete the sentence, “I can’t live without……”
Tea! I grew up drinking tea w/ my grams and think of her everyday when I pour my first cup. I have a large tea collection from all of my world travels. I probably couldn't live without travel either!
My favorite place in the World is...
A beach in Montauk NY with an amazing sunset where I go each summer with family. My grandparents brought my dad when he was little, my parents brought me, and I can't wait to continue the traditon.
What is the best word to describe our family?
Warm, funny, adventurous, loving, and always surrounded by food! I have a large family and they are all very excited to welcome a new member to the family. Lot's of hugs and cousins in this crew!
Do I have kids? How do they feel about a sibling?
I don't currently have kids, but I do hope to adopt more than once. My brother Eric and I are close and I would love my child to experience the same type of relationship as they grow up.
My philosophy on parenting is...
to listen, encourage, and provide guidance. I believe that children need discipline to walk the right path, but they also need some wiggle room to have fun, grow and figure out who they are.
My neighborhood is a good place to raise a family because…
there are tons of young diverse families, great schools, beautiful parks, and fun activities. It's close to my large extended family and several other adoptive families who are all supportive.
My best friend would describe me as...
welcoming, inclusive, loyal, strong & supportive.
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you look at the night sky?
The night sky inspires me to live each day to the fullest. It reminds me that anything is possible and that the next day is a new fresh beginning and an opportunity for something great!
Dogs or cats?
Dogs! Sadie is my sweet 3yr old rescue dog who came to me from the Caribbean after an accident where she broke her hip. She is now recovered, happy, and loves children, cuddling, and carrots.
If I could have dinner with anyone—dead or alive—I would pick...
My grandmother (my mom's mom). She passed before I was born and I have always felt really close to her even though we never had the chance to meet. I believe that she watches over me.
In five years, our relationship with our birth mother will...
My hope is that we'll have built a relationship filled with understanding, respect, and an open line of communication. I would always want you to feel confident about choosing me to be a parent.
I would never...
eat mayo. It's gross, haha.
We are the best choice because…
I will provide a loving, stable, and fun home full of opportunities and experiences. As a business owner I can provide security and still be a stay at home mom. I'll never miss an important moment.
Favorite season and why?
Fall brings cozy sweaters, hot soups, and the beginning of the holiday season. That means lots of happy celebrations and meals with the people I love.
If you had to live on an RV or sailboat for the rest of your life, which would it be?
RV. Traveling the land gives you the opportunity to meet interesting people and experience where they live. I may also need a boat to visit other continents :).
If I could choose one type of food to eat for the rest of my life, it would be:
Cheese! All types, even the stinky ones.
The most special thing I own is...
An antique telephone table that belonged to my grandparents. My grandfather found it in the trash in 1940 and I recently updated it with funky fabric & paint. It's now in my living room.
Three years from now, I hope our birth mom is…..
thriving & happy. I hope she is comforted knowing that her child is loved, encouraged, supported, and cared for in every possible way.
