Hello from Nicole in AZ
Dear Birth Mother:
I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to provide unconditional love and support for your child. I know the decision of adoption is not the easiest, but I am beyond gracious that you chose me as the adoptive parent. As we go through this process I hope to work as a team.
I would love to learn about you, your family, your hopes and dreams for your little one as I would keep this in mind and share how special your thoughts were. All I ever wanted in life was to have a baby boy or baby girl, and there is no better time than now to carry out my forever dream.
Characteristic That Define Me:
LOYAL, GOAL ORIENTED, TRUSTWORTHY, LOVING, RESPECTFUL
5 Things You Might Be Surprised To Learn About Me:
I AM AN ONLY CHILD, MY PARENTS AND I WERE BORN AND RAISED IN AZ WHICH IS RARE TO FIND, I PLAYED BASKETBALL IN HIGH SCHOOL ALL 4 YEARS, I AM A LEFTY AND MY DAD IS A LEFTY, I WENT TO ASU (GRAD IN 2001) AND HAVE MY MASTERS (GRAD IN 2004) FROM NAU
5 Things That Make Me Laugh!
KIDS, NERDY MATH JOKES, BEING AT DISNEYLAND, FUNNY DOG VIDEOS ON FACEBOOK, HEARING A BABY GIGGLE
I was born and raised in Arizona. My family is rather large because my father is one of six. When we all get together it is always so much fun. Even though we all have busy lives, we always find time during Christmas to carry on the tradition of being together at my parent’s house or one of my aunt’s or uncle’s homes. We have a wonderful meal, enjoy each other’s company, exchange white elephant gifts, and most of all laugh. Family is such an important part of who I am.
I live in a neighborhood that is gated and has many children that play in their front yards. People are always out walking their dogs, exercising, or getting out of their house to be friendly with all the neighbors. It is a safe and growing area with many schools nearby that are in the same district that I teach. This is nice because when my future child goes to school they will be on my same schedule.
I played basketball in high school and have always been interested in sports. I attend many sporting events for all of my Arizona teams. I support the Arizona Cardinals, Phoenix Suns, Arizona Diamondbacks, and my alma mater Arizona State Sun Devils. I am a loyal fan and support them whether they win or lose. My child will know the importance of sports, and I can’t wait to enroll my future child in youth sports to see what their interests will be.
Country music is part of my life. I attend many concerts and have even had a meet and greet with one of my favorites; Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. Another favorite artist of mine is Dierks Bentley who is from AZ. You always have to support your home town artists.
5 Things That Make Me Happy:
BEING WITH CLOSE FRIENDS AND FAMILY, ESPECIALLY MY YOUNGER COUSINS AND FRIENDS’ KIDS, THE BEACH, BEING OUTDOORS WHEN IT’S NOT SUPER HOT HERE IN ARIZONA, OUR FAMILY CABIN, SUPPORTING MY STUDENT’S WITH THEIR EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

My Career and Free Time
I’ve been teaching high school math for 17 years now. I currently teach at the same school that I attended and student taught at. Now that’s true loyalty! I love what I do and cannot imagine doing anything different.
There is nothing better than impacting a student’s life forever and seeing them grow and learn from each other throughout the course of a year. I have always believed that teaching was not only about supporting students in the classroom, but supporting them outside the classroom as well.
I attend many extracurricular activities that my students participate in. This can range from sporting events, dance shows, plays, to choir concerts, etc. When my students see me there, they know I truly care about them as a whole person not just as a student in class. Because family is so important to me and such a huge part of who I am, teaching is the perfect job for me.
I have weekends, holidays, and summers off, because of this it allows me to travel often and spend quality time visiting friends and family in other states. My mother and father own their own business which will allow my mother to watch my future child while I am at work. Once again, I am honored that you are considering me to not only fulfill my most cherished dream of becoming a mom, but as an only child, fulfilling my parent’s dream of becoming grandparents.
My Loved Ones
I have a huge support system. My parents live five miles away, my aunts and uncles live close as well, and I have many close friends that live right down the street from me. I have supportive friends and colleagues that have been adopted and have added such a special insight into what this journey will become. My future child will have many friends to play with considering all my cousins and my friend’s kids.
Growing up I had a red poodle and I always said when I got my own house I would get a red poodle. Currently I have two fur babies whom I adore and love very much. I have Kyra who is a red miniature poodle, and Myah who is a mini goldendoodle. They are amazing with children! Myah and Kyra can’t wait to welcome a little one into our home!
Quote From My Parents:
“For years we have dreamed of being grandparents, we are so excited to now have the opportunity. We would be the best grandparents to teach and assist in raising the child you have created. Our family is full of love and we are ready to share that love with our grandchild.”
5 Family Traditions:
CONDO FOR 2 WEEKS EVERY SUMMER IN CARLSBAD, CA, TELLURIDE, CO TO GO SNOWBOARDING, MONTANA EVERY SUMMER TO VISIT FAMILY AND NATIONAL PARKS, OUR CABIN UP NORTH IN MUNDS PARK, AZ, CHRISTMAS TOGETHER WITH MY DAD’S SIDE
My promise to you is that I will be there each and every day to love my future child unconditionally. I will be there for every late night cry, every scraped knee and everything in between.
I will teach them to love with all their heart, to know the difference between right and wrong and to be an honest and good person. I promise to support them as they learn and grow. I will always encourage them to try new things, whether it’s with their academics or extracurricular activities.
They will always know the importance of having healthy relationships with others. I will be their biggest supporter in all they do. Most importantly, I will ensure they know how much you loved and cared for them by choosing the decision of adoption.
