Dear Expectant Parents,

I am going to do my best to introduce myself and family. First, I consider it an honor to have you looking at our profile as you consider this difficult and important decision. I hope this profile provides you with some answers you seek about who we are. In my 22 years of being involved in adoption I have learned that there is never a set path to what is best. The best changes over time, as do each of us. With this said, I want you to know I value any level of openness you are comfortable with and will always honor you in our lives! This can be fluid as we build our relationship!

With that said, I am Marguerite! I have a have an amazing tribe of girls. Jasmine, Heaven, Soraya, Isabella, Aleana and Emerson are their names! The oldest is 22 and the youngest is almost 8. I have been a foster parent for many years. I support reunification and am thrilled that so many of my loves have had the opportunity to rejoin their families forever. As happy as I am for them, I do lose a piece of my heart as each one leaves. I yearn to be a forever mom of a child that I am able to see grow from infancy to adulthood.

I am a social introvert who loves to be home, but also likes to do things with those who are close to me. My kids participate in a number of activities and I love to see their dedication and passion. I have spent time building my career to the point that I am able to provide well for our family. At this time, I am very lucky to be able to work from home and split my time between work and family. It has allowed me for many years to be able to be flexible and maintain the kids needs and wants! As a family our passions include all things Disney, board games, and shopping. We take trips to see our family around the country and also enjoy annual trips to DisneyWorld. We also live in the amazing state of Colorado, which allows us to ski, hike and spend a great deal of time outside year around.

Our community includes great schools and parks, hospitals and therapists! We have active relationships with the best Children’s hospital, all types of therapists (speech, mental, occupational, physical), and a great pediatrician that we have seen for 20 years now. I have a niece, nephew and been a foster parent to many kids with special needs. This is near and dear to my heart. I believe every child is a gift and needs the support to be the best they can. I want to be that support! I also have been involved in helping athletes in the Special Olympics organization for over 10 years now. This has taught me so much!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this far! I hope you continue to find more in our profile that will help you be at ease with your decision. I would love to connect with you!

Love, Marguerite.
