I’m a single woman in my 40's, whom others describe as warm, fun-loving, and kind. I grew up in a close and happy family, with two wonderful parents and eight siblings. Today, this family has expanded to include 6 in-laws and 13 grandchildren. My parents taught us that that being a friend or family member means being there for each other. So know that your child will be part of a loving family and one that chooses to be each other's greatest support. I believe each of us needs to be surrounded by people who see the beauty in us – who love us for who we are, yet challenge us to grow throughout our lives.
