Although I am single, I have a wonderful support system of friends and family. My parents live about 45 minutes from me, and my sister and her family are a little over an hour away. We see each other at least once a month for family meals and frequently keep in touch via phone calls, texts or Facetime.
My parents are retired and are eager to be grandparents again. They watch my niece once a week and hope to be able to do the same with this child. They hope to share their love of reading, gardening and birdwatching with them as well. We are a tight-knit family that loves to travel and celebrate holidays together. I’m very lucky to have friends who are always there for me. I have a few friends who have been through the adoption process themselves who are eager to support a child and me on this adoption journey.
