When writing a single parent adoption profile, it’s important to play to your strengths. You hear that phrase from business leaders, professors and athletic coaches. Showcasing that mindset in your adoption profile is a great way to approach your writing. Think about your life as a timeline and the steps you took. Those steps now lead to the person you’ve become.
Your childhood is a great place to start. Why? Many of us have fond childhood memories of experiences that played out over the years. Adopting a child gives us the keys to a time machine that takes us back to relive those experiences. I’m not talking about living vicariously through someone. I mean sharing experiences. Sometimes those experiences were passed down from one generation to another. Explain the depth. Those are the unique pieces of your story, and will make for an even more unique single parent adoption profile.
Next, think about the adult you’ve become. Now you see life through a different set of eyes. You’ve lived new experiences and gained wisdom that you’re looking forward to sharing with a child. Maybe it’s the sweetness of reading bedtime stories or the creativity found in a can of play-dough.
Some of us can explore the cool water of a neighborhood creek, lake or ocean. Others have neighborhoods that offer culture. When writing a single parent adoption profile, think about how you will explore your surroundings with a child. Explain that and create a rich, mental image for the reader.
Sometimes lists are the perfect way of capturing your life. Those are some of my favorite parts of summer. What are yours? Sometimes you say a lot or evoke images with just one sentence.
