It’s so nice to meet you…even if just through this letter. Thank you so much for taking the time to consider me as the adoptive mother of your child. My name is Courtney and I’m excited to tell you a little bit about my life in the next few pages.
I have always wanted to be a mom and I’ve been so blessed to have the opportunity to become one through adopting my daughter Claire in 2018! It’s so important to me that Claire grow up in a family with siblings and I’m beyond excited to be at a place in our lives where we can start another adoption journey. Adoption to me is a beautiful picture of lives coming together through choice, creating an eternal bond of love. I know you have a lot of things to think about during this time and I so appreciate you considering adoption. You are making such a courageous and loving choice. Please know how much I respect and honor you and will support you no matter what you choose.
I am a California girl born and raised in the golden state. I’ve lived in other places in the United States but I’ve always come back to California because it’s just home to me. I purchased my single-family home a few years ago in a lovely and peaceful community in the Los Angeles suburbs. I love that my house is within driving distance of the beach, mountains and desert. I have had so much fun decorating Claire's room and I can't wait to decorate one of the other bedrooms as a nursery. The thing I fell in love with at my house though was the backyard. You only need to walk outside and there’s tons of grass, fruit trees, plants, and even a pool. It’s the perfect kids’ backyard and it’s been better than I could have ever imagined to watch Claire grow up playing in the backyard. She loves being outdoors and whether it’s picking oranges, swimming in the pool, or riding bikes, the backyard is where she’s at her happiest.
I love to travel! Experiencing other places and cultures and meeting people from around the world is one of my absolute favorite things to do! Traveling teaches you so much: about yourself, about history, art and architecture, and about people. I’ve been so blessed to travel all over the world and am so excited to continue traveling with Claire and her new sibling!
