Hello! I’m micha from Santa Cruz, California (just a mile from the beach and minutes from the redwoods). Thank you for taking the time to learn a little about me! I’m an artist and professor, and I love to read, write poetry and dance.
I love spending time at the beach or by the pool with my friends and chosen family, or walking in the forest with my dog, Roja. I enjoy traveling and am looking forward to new adventures with my future child. I have also been a foster parent, but I am most looking forward to becoming a mother through open adoption and getting to know you along the way!
I have always wanted to become a parent! In 2017 I met one of my favorite science-fiction authors, Ursula K Le Guin, and learned that she had three children and still found time to write many books! That’s when I realized that I could find a balance between my career, my artistic passions, and parenthood as a single mom. A friend of mine suggested adoption and fostering and so I started on this path around that time. In 2020 I was lucky enough to care for a wonderful baby girl for 9 months before she was able to be reunited with her biological family. I am still in contact with her biological family and am able to visit them.
The experience reconfirmed that I am ready to become a mother through open adoption!
