I knew I wanted to be a mother all my life. I was so sure I needed to be a mother that I decided to have a child on my own. It was such a blessing! Having my son made me feel as if I were the person I was always meant to be. I raised my son in the attachment style, which means he was with me as much as possible. When I first heard of this technique, I knew it was for me and will use this again. Co-sleeping, baby wearing, and on-demand nursing give a sense of security. It felt so natural.
I loved being a mother so much, and I knew I wanted to do it again. I tried to have another child, but I was unable to. When he was older, my son began to ask for a brother or sister. It was painful to tell Aidan I could not give him what we both wanted. If given a chance to mother again, it would be such a blessing. I would feel complete, and the new baby would have a loving big brother.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. I can’t imagine how you must be feeling. It takes so much strength and courage to make this decision. I’m sure you want what every mother does: for your child to be loved, safe, and treasured. That is my promise to you.
My name is Christina. I’m an OB/GYN and a single mother. I am very stable and have been with my employer for twelve years. A few years ago, I chose a reduced schedule. I work part-time so that I can be more available for my son. I’m so glad I did this. The time we have together is so important. My son, Aidan, is liked by everyone who meets him. He’s bright, loving, and energetic. He loves to play games and sports, and he also loves playing with our dog, Oreo. Oreo is just about two years old. He loves to take walks around our neighborhood and is very playful.
What Led Me To Adoption
I have always believed adoption is a tremendous gift. We are so excited to grow our family. I have several friends who have adopted, and I have seen the happiness it has brought them. I have hoped to grow my family for so long. Having that opportunity would mean more than I could tell you. By choosing us, you would be giving us a tremendous gift. We would forever be grateful to you.
We live in a quiet neighborhood in California. I chose this area because of the great schools. My son attends a highly rated school that is only a mile and a half away. There are many parks and biking trails nearby. Our house is cozy, and we have a large yard with a pool. My son and I both love rollercoasters. We go to the Great Wolf Lodge, Legoland, and Universal Studios every year. We love to travel. We’ve been to Cancun, Toronto, and Atlanta, but Hawaii is our favorite. We’re very active, and we both do yoga. My son likes to snowboard, swim, and play soccer and basketball. We are so eager to share our lives with a new family member.
My parents live in Los Angeles, and we also have extended family there. We celebrate holidays and birthdays together and truly enjoy spending time together. My family loves to play games when we get together, and the room is always full of laughter. I have a close group of friends who also have children, and we have playdates. We also like to attend the many family events in our community. My mother often travels with us. Last year we went to Disney World together.
