Idolene's Scholarship Letter

Have you ever felt the sense of completion after you finally found your niche in life?

I finally have and that is Interior Design. I have a passion for Interior Design because I love everything that is behind it, including: The psychology, the fang aM, the way you can change a person's mood and outlook by the feel of a room, the color, the placement of furniture and decor, and also the business aspect.

Since I have been practicing Interior Design on my house and clients houses, I have gained a scene of accomplishment and desire to become more in this field. I want to lead the foundation in which creates the design. I want to enhance my drawing capabilities and also learn the business aspects so that when I am doing estimates or talking to potential clients I can give them proper numbers and also have proper business etiquette.

My dream of Interior Design is being able to have a credibility from an institute that will take me to owning my own business, employing other designers and building the greatest interior design team out there, and also gaining personal respect for the field and having the knowledge and confidence that I need to succeed in this dream and goal that I have set for myself.

I think that anyone who is eligible for this scholarship should be able to receive it, for everything they have been through with the recovery of putting your child up for a adoption. Unfortunately that's not how things work, so what makes me stand out against everyone else is that I have found something that I know and want to succeed in, and not only for myself and future but for my child, Banett, that I put up for adoption.

As you can see I am very passionate about my career and going back to school. I hope you will consider me not only based on what's on the paper but the passion I put into my dreams and goals. I can guarantee that with this scholarship I will soar with determination and success.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is American Adoptions the right adoption agency choice for many birth mothers?

American Adoptions is one of the largest licensed adoption agencies in the United States. Each year, we work with thousands of women who are facing an unplanned pregnancy and offer assistance to these women. Our large, caring staff is able to assist you seven days a week and provide you with one-on-one counseling about your pregnancy and available options.

You should choose an adoption agency where you feel completely comfortable with their services and staff. With American Adoptions, you will work with an Adoption Specialist who is on-call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Adoption Specialist will be your advocate and will provide support and guidance as you create an adoption plan that is right for you.

How will the family tell my child about me and the adoption when my child is older?

Each family has their own style of introducing adoption to the child. When you are matched with an adoptive family, you can ask them this question. If you would like your Adoption Specialist to discuss it for you, just let her know. He or she can share your wishes or provide good ideas from other adoptive families.

You will also be able to share what you want your baby to know about you. You can complete a keepsake booklet to share hobbies, stories, photos of you and your family and a letter to your baby. The adoptive family can provide this to your child as he or she grows older. Be as creative as you like! Some birth mothers have even knitted a special blanket as a gift to their baby or given a similar symbol of their love.

The father of your baby can fill out the birth father's keepsake booklet or write a letter too. You may have other family members who would also like to share photos or a letter to the baby. This is your opportunity to pass on your and your family's love and to share your personality, history and reasons for choosing adoption. The adoptive family will treasure whatever information you provide and will share it with the baby at an appropriate age. In most adoptive homes, the word adoption is in the child's vocabulary early on, and adoption is celebrated in their lives.
