– North Dakota –
I’m Kate, a single woman hoping to build a family through an open adoption. I have known from a young age that I wanted to adopt, but when my doctor told me last year that it was unlikely that I’d be able to have biological children, I knew the time had come to start my journey to adopt. I am so excited to build a forever relationship with an expectant mom or parents and have a family to share this amazing adventure called life with!
I live in a four bedroom, three bathroom, ranch-style home at the back of a quiet cul-de-sac. There are a number of young families in my neighborhood and I live less than a mile from multiple parks. I have a large fenced in backyard with a large garden and play set. In the summer I often host bar-b-ques for my friends and their families so we can all hang out together. One of my best friend lives less than two miles away and we are excited to raise our children together.
The nursery it set up across the hall from my bedroom, so I can be close by if needed. The theme is Peter Rabbit as it was one of my favorite childhood books and I want to foster a love of reading in the children I raise. Gibson loves to lay by the rocking chair and watch kids play in the room whenever we have friends over.
Gibson is a 8 year old Greater Swiss Mountain dog. He is a gentle dog who loves to be pet by anyone, from the youngest child to the oldest adult. Tex is a brown and black striped domestic short hair cat. He is very affectionate and his favorite thing to do is play with water. He will sit by the sink and watch me wash dishes, as he is so interested in running water. Grant is a 12 year old gray and white domestic short hair cat. He loves to nap in the sun or curl up at the foot of the bed.
I grew up celebrating every holiday from Flag Day to Christmas. My mom took each holiday as an opportunity to treat us about history and other cultures. I consintiendo this tradition by giving gifts to friends and family to celebrate the lesser known holidays that come up. Another tradition I continue is backing cookies for all my neighbors at Christmas time. This combines my live of Christmas and my live of baking.
