I pray that all o your expectations will be realized with whomever you choose. And, if I were to be blessed enough that you choose me, know that your child will see that your decision was made out of love. We will always honor you and the gift you have given.

My Home

I live in a residential area of Chicago with tree-lined streets, lots of families, and a large park a half of block away. Here, families and friends gather year round for softball, sledding, picnics, tennis, the playground, and just enjoying nature and the community. I also have a great career and work in an investment firm where people put their family first. I have a lot of flexibility with my schedule. My travel is limited and I’m always home in time for dinner. And, with so many activities to do in the city, I will be there for every ball game, dance recital and important event.

My nieces and nephews love to stay overnight with me and enjoy the neighborhood. We always take the short walk to the Lake Michigan Lakefront and Lincoln Park Zoo. I am friendly with all of my neighbors. Each year on the evening before New Year’s Eve, I host an “Eve of the Eve” party. One of the things I love about Chicago is the large mix of backgrounds and cultures.


My Family

I’ve always dreamed of being a mother and having a family. And, I’ve always been very open to building a family through adoption. For now my sole focus is on adoption and becoming a mom, and I’ve never been happier. My family and friends have always taken great interest in, and embraced other cultures and races. In the same way, your child and I will take great joy in learning and emerging in their heritage and culture. Please know that I want your child to take great pride in exactly who they are.

What lead Kate to Adoption

It has always been my dream to be a parent, and to give a young person my love, security, guidance and encouragement. Your child will be the greatest joy in my life. Each day, I will strive to provide them with a warm and loving home, to make them feel their special place in the world, and to give them a joyful and fulfilling life.
