Dear expectant parents

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TAKING THE TIME TO LEARN ABOUT ME AND CONSIDERING ME AS A POTENTIAL PARENT TO YOUR CHILD. I LOOK FORWARD TO KNOWING ALL ABOUT YOU, TOO!

I want you to know that becoming a parent will be the biggest blessing and gift I can ever receive. I have always wanted to be a mom and have chosen adoption as my path to grow my family and make that dream come true. I am excited for this new chapter of my life. I can promise you that my heart is wide open and I will love your child unconditionally.

MY
STORY

I grew up in the suburbs outside of New York City. My favorite childhood memories are of swimming at the beach, making arts and crafts, being a Girl Scout and going on sleigh rides in the winter. Growing up, my parents loved to travel and took my brother and I on many trips and weekend adventures. It’s the big reason I still love to travel today!

On the weekends, I enjoy spending time with friends, riding my bike in the nearby park, attending new exhibits and shows, shopping and eating at new restaurants. I also love spending time with my nephews. We compete in relay races, sports and swim in my brother’s pool. Since I love to draw, I host drawing competitions with prizes for them. When I am with them, I always picture myself being a mom.

THE THREE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS IN MY LIFE ARE FAMILY, FRIENDS AND LIVING A PURPOSEFUL AND FULFILLING LIFE.

I try not to take a single moment for granted and cherish every single day. Every year, it’s tradition to drive to upstate New York with my family to go apple and pumpkin picking.

Afterwards, we come home and bake apple crisp pies. I can’t wait to become a mom so I can provide your child with all the wonderful memories, opportunities and traditions like I had growing up.

ABOUT

ME

I am a very curious person and I am always looking to learn new things, be it through work, hobbies or exploring new places. I travel to Europe every year and explore the United States as much as I can, even for a long weekend. I believe a lot can be learned not only through school, but through life experiences. I can’t wait to take your child on adventures with me!

My close friends would describe me as an intelligent, friendly, down to earth and nurturing person who has a great sense of humor. They used to call me “Fun Jen” growing up because I was always up for new adventures. I love to laugh and I never take myself too seriously! I’m excited to be there for your child as they grow and experience life, including the exciting and difficult times. I will always support and encourage them to fulfill their goals and dreams.

CAREER

I just recently joined the family real estate business alongside my father and brother. Prior to this, I worked as a lawyer for an insurance company for 15 years.

My grandfather started the real estate business in the 1950’s. As a property manager, I handle the day to day operations of the buildings; collecting rents, preparing leases and agreements and repair and maintenance issues.

BECAUSE I AM FINANCIALLY STABLE AND WORK WITH MY FAMILY, I HAVE THE FLEXIBILITY TO BE COMPLETELY PRESENT IN YOUR CHILD’S UPBRINGING. I INTEND TO BE A FULL TIME STAY AT HOME MOM AND THEN ONLY WORK PART TIME FROM HOME.

HOME

I live in New York City in a small residential community on a beautiful tree lined street. It is a very safe neighborhood. I am within walking distance to everything and have access to excellent schools, great parks, playgrounds, museums, libraries, restaurants and entertainment. I am also a short car ride away to the suburbs where my father, brother and nephews live.

I also have a summer home in Long Island, New York. It is within walking distance to the beach. I enjoy spending summer weekends on the beach, bike riding, hiking, watching sunsets and eating ice cream! When I am not at the summer home, I enjoy going to a pool club in the nearby suburbs that I spent my childhood years at and now belong to. It has a big Olympic sized swimming pool and the club provides many children activities such as sports teams and a summer day camp.

MY

FAMILY

The people we treasure

I grew up in an Italian American family where everything was about food and family gatherings. My family members are all close because my mother was very nurturing and attentive. Plus she got everyone together for the Sunday Italian dinner with my grandparents. She was always cooking! My mother has since passed away. My father, brother and I keep up with the family traditions, especially for my three little nephews, who are also my godchildren. On Christmas Eve, we decorate the tree and open presents. We then end the night with a big meal.

Future traditions I would like to start is to visit the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center every holiday, travel on fun weekend trips during your child’s school breaks and picking one night a week to have a favorite meal.

THOUGHTS

- ON -

PARENTING

I have a great desire to open my heart and home to a child. I am in a great place in my life to provide a safe, stable and loving home and have the financial stability to provide your child with a great education, opportunities and the best future I can. I plan to be a full hands on mom who will be completely present in your child’s upbringing. I will be there to support them in all of life’s journeys, good and bad. I want you to know that I will raise them to be kind, a good person and will always encourage them to fulfill all their goals and dreams. And, most importantly, I will love your child unconditionally.

FAITH

- & -

PARENTING

I grew up in a Catholic family who instilled in me a sense of morals and values. I believe in honesty, integrity and being kind to others. I always try to be a good person and do the best I can in any given situation.

I attend Church semi regularly and I celebrate all Catholic holidays. I believe faith is important and I plan to raise your child Catholic. I hope to teach them the values that are rooted in my Christian faith.

Thank

YOU!

I hope I did a good job in showing you a glimpse into my life, who I am as an individual and who I would be as a mom.

I wish you my thoughts and prayers as you go through this courageous and difficult decision of choosing potential parents for your child. If I am chosen, I want you to know that I want your child to know all about you and where they came from. I look forward to always keeping in touch with you and sharing letters, pictures, videos and updates, whatever makes you the most comfortable. I am honored to be considered as a potential parent. Thank you again!
