|More About My Family
|Approach to Life|
Life can be challenging, but we can face each situation with a “can-do attitude” and optimism for life. This is a wonderful characteristic I learned from my late Mother. My father grew up in the hills of rural Jamaica and taught us the importance of an entrepreneurial spirit and a creativity in approaching life. We also have a long history of passionately pursuing educational opportunities (all of the 19 grandchildren have graduate degrees). This is something I am excited to share.
|My Supportive Family|
Being "family" means providing active support for one another. In our regular family meetings, we share updates on life plans and challenges and jointly brainstorm solutions. I look forward to including your child in this important family resource/ tradition.
|My Musical Interest|
I love music... Whether singing or listening to Brazilian Jazz, 80's or 90's music or contemporary Christian music. I also am a fan of Broadway musicals. Music makes me smile.
|Natural Curiosity about the World|
I have been blessed to travel extensively within Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe. My love of discovering people and cultures is something I will share. I also hope to share my passion for education and being a continuous learner, no matter the age!
I am the youngest of four children-- and we are all very close. I speak with my siblings (and my Dad) daily. Presently, I live with my brother and his fiance. They will be apart of my immediate support system to help me as I raise a precious child.

|Future Contact with Birth Family|
Open to as much communication as adoptive family feels comfortable with. I am happy to share pictures, videos or to set up regular meetings.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know me! I am excited to start this journey of expanding my family through adoption. As my parents modeled for me, I will bring love, laughter, meaningful educational opportunities, and a large village to support your child in their reaching their dreams and healthy development.
