My name is Kim and this is the hardest letter I’ve ever had to write, but knowing that we both want a happy, successful future for your baby gives us some common ground on which to begin. I also believe that the choice you have made to place your baby for adoption is the most loving and selfless decision you could make. I’m sure there may be people who disagree with your decision but just know that you, and I are giving your baby the best chance in life.
I guess it’s time to tell you about myself. I am the oldest of 3 girls. My poor Dad was outnumbered!! I was born in California but lived all over the country and in Germany. My Dad was in the army so we moved a lot. It was a good experience and I was able to see places I wouldn’t have if we had stayed in just one city. It also provided a closer relationship with my parents that I may not have had otherwise. Since we moved so often, we knew we could always rely on each other no matter what.
While growing up I played soccer, baseball, softball and was on a competitive, travelling swim team. I was the only girl on my little league all-star team. I swam from the ages of 10-15 and I was the captain of my high school soccer team my senior year. I was also involved in theater and video production in high school.
After high school I moved back to California to attend college and to take care of my grandmother after the death of my grandfather. It is a time that I will appreciate for the rest of my life and an experience that not everyone gets to have.
I speak to my dad every day after work. He retired to Washington about 8 years ago and then moved to Arizona last year to be closer to his family. Now, he and my step-mother are only a 4.5 hour drive away. We each visit the other several times a year. When they come here, they stay with me and my mom and we stay with them when my mom and I visit Arizona. Some people find this weird – a divorced couple that stay with each other during visits – but I find it makes life so much easier since everyone gets along so well.
As I said, I’m the oldest of three and have 2 younger sisters. Although I don’t see my younger sister very often, I am very close to my youngest sister who lives with her son and husband about 10 minutes away. We are very close and would do anything for each other.
For the past few years, I have volunteered my time to the Relay for Life which is a community event that raises money for the American Cancer Society. I started out as a participant and I’m now the chair -person for the event.
I’m also a big Disney fan. For fun, I try to go to Disneyland a couple of times each year. I made it a point to take each of my nieces and nephews for one-on-one trips for special birthdays. It is so much fun and makes me feel like a kid again every time I go.
I enjoy movies and the history of cinema and I especially like older movies, my favorite being “Gone with the Wind”. I am the go-to person for my family if they have any questions regarding the entertainment industry. I even host an Oscars game for my family every year. We have a trophy that goes to the winner each year.
Finally, I’m an experienced professional with a good income, with benefits as well as a safe and clean home in which to raise a child. My family and I encourage traditional values such as truth, honesty and generosity and we all love and support each other very much. Your child would be welcomed into our family immediately and completely.
So that is all there is to know about me. I just want to say that I have always wanted to be a mother. I am a loving, caring person who will do everything I can to make sure this baby has a good life. I have enough love to be both mother and father. I have plenty of friends and family support to help me with any situation that may arise. All of us, including my parents, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, etc. hope you will consider my profile and place your child with me and us.
Thank you and good luck.
