My Story

Finding dinosaurs at a local garden show
Hi, there! I’m Felicia. Thank you for making the decision to read my story and consider me as an adoptive parent! I’m so excited to open my heart to a child and I cannot wait to finally become a mommy.

Though I’m adopting as a single mother, I have been in a long-term relationship with boyfriend, Jason, for over ten years.

Having a family is something that I have always dreamed about...

He truly is the light of my life and will most certainly be a major part of any child’s life that I have the honor of raising. He is an amazing man, and I know that any child would be lucky to have him as role model.

Having a family is something that I have always dreamed about, but the journey has not been easy. After five years of trying to conceive, both with and without fertility treatments, I decided to look into adoption. I truly feel that this is the right path for my family and a dream come true. I look forward to welcoming a little one into my heart and home and experiencing the world through a child’s curious eyes!

My Home & Community

I live in a quaint and comfortable duplex with Jason, in a diverse neighborhood with lots of other young families. There is more than enough space to accommodate a child and the perfect backyard for them to play. We share our home with my 9-year old indoor cat named LuLu.

Let's just say, there's always something to do around here!

She is very spunky and truly spoiled. You can often see her perched by our big picture windows watching birds, lizards, and squirrels that wonder into our yard.

I believe all families do best when they are part of a loving and supportive community. I have lived in Florida for over 12 years now and feel as if my friends are my second family. My community is very family-oriented. It is close to two, highly-rated elementary schools and a new community recreation center just around the corner. The community hosts parades, food festivals, concerts and art festivals often during tourist season. They even do a snow festival every year in which they blow ice into the air and let it rain down like snow for the kids to play in!

My boyfriend Jason is genuine, reliable, caring, and a big kid at heart. He loves theme parks, rock concerts, and movies. I always have a good time when I’m around him. He works in a local foster shelter and is a great role model for the kids he cares for. Everyone who meets him says how much they like him. I know that a child would love him just as much as I do!

I’m very involved in my church and taught Sunday School for years. I’ve done childcare during big church events and love to help out at the kids’ events. My Bible Study has been with me since the beginning and are always asking for news.

I am part of a public speaking group and a lot of my friends come from here. Some are parents, some are grandparents and some are even on the same path that I’m on now with adoption. Friends from this group have been instrumental in my adoption journey so far and can’t wait to meet the child.

On the weekends, I love to take a stroll with Jason through one of the beautiful nearby parks or check out the newest exhibit at the local museum. There is also a botanical garden just down the road and a zoo and a wildlife rehab center nearby as well. Let's just say, there's always something to do around here!

My Family

Family is a huge part of my life and that importance is something that I hope to pass on to a child. I am very close with my parents and love spending time with them as much as possible. They visit quite often and we always take one vacation together each year.

Family is a huge part of my life...

They are very excited to know that they may soon become grandparents and cannot wait to spoil a child!

Over the years my extended family has grown quite a bit. I love visiting with them in Ohio and meeting the newest members of our family.

Throughout my life, I have been surrounded by a big family. I have lots of cousins, uncles, aunts, and am still very close with my grandparents. I try to visit with everyone as much as possible, but when I can't Facebook and Skype will do!

Jason’s mother is a big part of our lives and lives nearby. I consider her part of my family as well. She can’t wait to start planning visits with the child and has already begun offering to babysit.

Thank you for considering me

Thank you so much for taking the time to look through my profile! I know that this is a big decision and I am honored that you would consider me as a potential mother. I have longed to be a parent for so long, and cannot wait for the opportunity to raise a little boy or girl. I dream of the day when we can cuddle up at night, reading books or discover new things together each day!

I promise to give the child everything I have to offer – love, nurturing, acceptance, a great education, lots of adventure and so much more.

I hope to keep you updated throughout the years on how the child is developing through letters and pictures. However, regardless of the level of openness you prefer, I will always remind them of the great sacrifice their mother made so they could have the life they deserve!

I wish you all the best as you sort out what is right for you and your baby.
