Adoptive Family Tara
Hi, I’m Tara! I want to start off by thanking you for viewing my profile and reading a little more about me. Although "thank you" doesn’t seem to express the right amount of gratitude, it’s the best way I know how to convey my appreciation. As you read my profile, I hope your heart feels full, connected to me, and at peace as you consider me to be your child’s parent. This selfless act takes an incredible amount of courage, maturity, and strength. I hope this letter gives you a peek into my passion to raise a child and my love for family.

Six years ago my brother and sister-in-law had their first child. I was able to spend a lot of time with my niece, and we quickly formed a very close bond. Through her first six years of life I’ve had the opportunity to experience many of her “firsts." I’ve done this with joy and a high level of pride. As I’ve watched Ellie take her first steps, attend her first day of preschool, jump in the pool on her first day of swim lessons, and carry her backpack to her first day of Kindergarten, I can’t help but envision the “firsts” I will have with a child. I imagine celebrating the first time the baby rolls over, the first art project with the child’s tiny hand print being sent home from school, first steps, first words, and first days of school. I know these will be days to cherish and celebrate. I long to encourage, support, teach, and love your child.

I work as an administrator in an early childhood and preschool program. This program is at a major corporation's world headquarters and the center is very diverse. We serve families from 14 different countries. I love my job and the children and families we serve each day. My employer is very supportive of family and my position is flexible. I look forward to being able to bring my child to work with me and know that I can step into the child’s classroom throughout the day for a snuggle, or an afternoon art project.

I want to be open and honest about this child's adoption story. I want your child to feel secure knowing that you made a very special decision for him/her and that they are loved by many. I will be there for your child when he/she succeeds in life and support, encourage and listen when they stumble. I will be open about his/her heritage and foster the most loving relationship possible.

I have a solid understanding of child development, as this has been my focus as I have continued my education. I hold an Associate’s Degree in Early Care and Education and a Bachelor’s Degree in Child Development. I know I will be able to encourage the child as he/she reaches milestones and matures from a child, into an adolescent, young adult, and adulthood. I know the child will always feel the love of a strong family who has endless, unconditional love to give.

I envision my contact with you to be strong. I hope that you would like to exchange emails, pictures, and even have Skype or FaceTime calls throughout the year. I think this will be a wonderful opportunity for the child to stay connected to you and have a supportive understanding of their adoption. If contact is something you’re not interested in, I intend to still be very open with this child about their adoption. I want him/her to always know about their adoption and how special this choice is.

Adoption is such an incredible journey. Not just any child will be able to say he/she is loved by selfless birth parents and a genuine and loving adoptive parent. Thank you again for reading my profile.

With much love and appreciation,

Tara
