Hello and welcome, my name is Kelly!


Dear Birthmother:

I want to thank you for taking the time to get to know me. I am thrilled about the possibility of becoming a mother. I have been blessed with such a full and adventurous life, but I know it can’t compare to the love I will share with my child.

Being a mother is something I’ve always dreamed of, and this a great time in my life to do it, which is why I’ve decided to adopt at this time. After quite a few years of hard work, my business is really doing well now, and I have a great team working for me. This allows me to still be involved creatively, yet also spend much more time at home being a mom.

I truly admire your courage and want you to know that if there’s anything you want to ask, please don’t hesitate. I’m very open!


A Little Bit About Me:

I love to go to the flower mart and pick different fresh flowers to arrange in vases and place throughout my house. I love to cook and try new recipes. It’s even more fun to cook for friends and I absolutely love to entertain. I like to use my juicer to make healthy, fresh juices. I enjoy going to museums, especially to see modern art exhibits. I can’t live without good music and am always listening to something – whether at home, in my studio or in my car. I often go to concerts. For exercise, I go for walks on the beach, bike rides in my neighborhood or take a yoga or pilates class.

I used to work doing PR for fashion in New York City and had so much fun doing it. I got to travel around the world and go to fashion shows all the time. It was such a blast! Now, I’m an interior designer. I really enjoy my work because I get to be super creative and meet such interesting people. We mostly design homes, but we sometimes design offices and retail stores as well.

I own my own business and have an office in Santa Monica. I have three amazing young ladies working for me, which gives me a lot of flexibility. I can work part time or work from home whenever I need to, which makes it the ideal career for being a mom.

My Hobbies and Passion for Travel

A few hobbies I enjoy are making flower arrangements, cooking and entertaining with friends, taking walks on the beach, bike rides through my neighborhood and going to local concerts.

I LOVE to travel! My mother was born and raised in Germany, and I am very close to the German side of my family and try visit them once a year, if not more.

Paris is one of my favorite cities in the world. It has so much history. I fell in love with Paris while studying there for a semester in college.

New York City is another of my favorite cities. I lived there for two years. NYC has so much energy and there is culture, art and design – not to mention yummy restaurants!

Hawaii is truly a paradise on earth and such a great place to go to relax and unwind. I traveled there often as a child and love to go there now for vacation.

I’ve been to London, Italy, Switzerland, Hong Kong, Japan and Tokyo. I love to explore new countries and cities and I can’t wait to introduce my child to all of the places I love and to explore new places together!

The Place That I Call Home

I live in Pacific Palisades, California, located right between Santa Monica and Malibu. The Palisades is such a perfect place to raise children! My home is just a short walk from the beach and has a breathtaking view of the ocean. I love to take long walks on the beach and to fall asleep at night to the sound of the waves washing upon the shore.

There are so many activities close by – from the beach, to beautiful parks and the Santa Monica Mountains. The schools are excellent in my neighborhood and the weather is sunny and warm year-round. There are so many kids in my neighborhood and my friends with kids live close by. They visit me and I visit them often. We love to cook or barbeque together, play games and watch movies.

I love all animals and grew up with dogs and cats at home. Right now, I don’t have my own pets in part because my neighbor’s cat, Tigre, has decided to “adopt” me. She comes every morning for a sip of milk and loves to lounge on my deck, soaking up the California sunshine and listening to the ocean.



Meet My Loved Ones

I am lucky to have amazing friends. My friends have truly become my family, especially since both of my parents have passed away recently and I don’t have any siblings. I am close with my aunts and cousins, both here in California and in Germany. Everyone can’t wait to welcome a new member to our family!

One of my closest friends, Amy, lives very close by. She and her husband David used to be my next-door neighbors. Their daughter Juliette considers me her “Auntie Kelly”. Amy also has a son Luc and we all spend a lot of time together and even travel together. This summer we all went to the South of France!

Kimberly is one of my best friends who I’ve known for over 20 years! Wow! She recently moved to Nashville with her daughter, Lauren, and her husband, Jim. I’ve already visited them once and can’t wait to go back. Nashville is such a fun city!

I have amazing men in my life. Daniele is from Rome, Italy and lives here in Los Angeles. Eric lives in Zurich, Switzerland. I just visited him this summer. My former business partner, Abboud lives in Dubai and comes to LA to visit several times a year. They will each be such great “uncles” to my child.


Favorite Traditions:

I LOVE to celebrate all the holidays! I especially love to decorate my home, cook and bake all sorts of yummy things, and invite my friends and family over.

Christmas is my all time favorite holiday and since my birthday is the first week of December, I make the entire month of December a celebration. It’s so much fun to go pick a fresh Christmas tree and bring it home to decorate. I love the way it looks with all the white lights glowing at night and the way it makes the house smell. I enjoy wrapping gifts and putting them under the tree to open Christmas morning. I always hang stockings above the fireplace with little goodies inside and if its cold, we will light the fire on Christmas Eve. On Christmas morning I bake homemade coffee cake to eat before we open our presents. Later in the day, I will roast a turkey or a ham and we all just eat and talk and laugh the day away.

Notes from Loved Ones and Closing Thoughts

A note from my good friend Kimberly: Kelly has been one of my closest friends for many years. She is a warm and caring person with a big heart.

Kelly would make a wonderful mother. She has so many amazing qualities – she is fun, patient, kind, and nurturing. She has interacted with love and compassion with my daughter since she was born. So much so, that she calls her “Auntie Kelly”.

She has been a truly wonderful friend – reliable, trustworthy, and understanding. A child would be very lucky and blessed to have her as their mom.

A note from my good friends Amy and David: We are so excited for you to meet Kelly. She is our dear friend. We love her like family and are thrilled to see her become a mother. We have two children, a 9 year old daughter and a 4 year old son and Kelly has been there for us since the day they were born. “Auntie Kelly” is a constant in their lives and they adore spending time with her. She is super fun, not afraid to be silly but also calm and reassuring. Children are naturally drawn to her.

Culture and travel are very important to Kelly.  We have traveled the world together and what an amazing opportunity lies in store for this child!  The ability to travel to exciting new cities and countries, learning and understanding the different languages and cultures that surround them.  She is passionate about sharing this world view, to expand their awareness and encourage their learning through such experiences.

Being a mother is a life calling for Kelly and something she will not take lightly.  She is ready to embrace this child, to protect, adore and make them the center of her world.


A note from my friend Eric:

I immediately noticed Kelly’s kindness and her drive for life. We are the best of friends. She has an affinity for children and I know she will be a wonderful mother. Kelly has this great connection with children that it is completely instant and natural. She has so much love to give to a child and I wish her the best in this new chapter in her life. I look forward to seeing Kelly, as a mother.


Closing Thoughts:

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I wanted to share with you one of my favorite quotes about children and parenting…“There are two gifts we should give our children; one is roots, and the other is wings.” I strongly believe this is true with one very important addition – LOVE – which I promise to give your child completely and unconditionally.
