From Annie Shibley

I have always wanted to become a Mom. There have been many tears, deep thoughts, reflection, and openness. All of this, has lead me to adoption. I can't wait to become a Mom and am anticipating all the love.

Ever since I could imagine, I wanted to be a teacher & I wanted to be a mom.   I became a teacher immediately after college and loved every minute of it.   And, I recently was promoted to principal at a small charter school in San Francisco.   

Isn't it always the best in life when you imagine something that comes to fruition.   I believe that we are set apart and what we imagine can and will come to life.   Being a mom is an imagination that I have been longing to come true.    

After much reflection, prayer, conversations with family and friends, I have decided that adoption was something I wanted to pursue regardless of my relationship status.  Although this seems somewhat "untraditional" or "not the norm" I believe that this is what is meant to happen.  I believe there is a child waiting for me, that we already have a connection (without even knowing it).     

Adoption is a financial decision that I struggled with.  However, I realized that what I imagine and believe can come true.  If you could just consider donating to this family I am building, I would appreciate it tremendously.   Anything helps, especially when I prepare for my child to come into my home.
