2: I cannot imagine what you are going through right now. But please know your child will know about you and how you put his or her needs before your own. Your child will know how much you care and the loving choice you made. Since I was a child I dreamed about being a mother. I believe God has called me to be a mom through adoption. | I will raise your child with lots of love, hugs, kisses and respect. She will be cared for, cherished, praised, encouraged and disciplined. I will teach her not only family values but how to value self as well. As her mom I will be there to provide all the support she needs to grow into the person she wants to be. I will be there for her struggles and for her successes. Most of all, your child will be loved unconditionally by a boundless heart. In my life I have a lot of support from family and friends. These people in my life live very close to me and I can count on them for anything I need, no matter the time or day. They will support your child with same love and care in which they support me. As hard as this must be for you, I hope you can find a little peace in knowing your child will be loved unconditionally and supported by myself and many friends and family members. I look forward to sharing this journey with you.

5: During one of my early years of teaching, a young lady-Teresa Murray - was assigned to my 6th grade class. As the year progressed, I found her to be a caring, considerate, fun loving, intelligent young lady, and that saying quite a lot for a sixth grader. At the time I had two toddlers both girls and often thought that I would be pleased to have them have the qualities Teresa possessed even at a young age.Her leadership and sensitivity to others made her a student of great promise. Several years later, I saw Teresa and found out she was in college studying to be an educator. Imagine my delight that one of my former students was choosing a career in which her influence on children would be life-changing. Since that time, I have since retired and had the opportunity to substitute in the building where she was the vocal music teacher. She has not changed in so many ways Â– still happy, sensitive, and encouraging and has the ability to lead others to share her love of music. Teresa will be a wonderful parent for any child Â– loved beyond measure. Her years of experience with young children will give her a great background for parenting. Of course she has been Â“auntÂ” to many children and loves sharing her life experiences with others. I am so excited that she is pursuing adoption and know some child will have a wonderful life as her precious child. Kathy Walter TeresaÂ’s former elementary teacher, fellow teacher and friend

7: My name is Nancy. Teresa is the youngest of my three daughters. As a child she liked to pretend to be a mom to her baby dolls. She played like they were real; putting them to bed,feeding and changing them. She always said she wanted to be a mommy from the very first part of her life. Teresa has always been kind sweet, caring and loving. As a teen she babysat a lot and the kids loved her and she loved them. When she grew up, her love of music and children led her to become a choir teacher. Her students all seem to love her. Every time she and I go somewhere she would run into a student and they would run up to her and give her a hug. They were always glad to see her and she was glad to see them. I think she would make a great mom and any child would be very lucky to have her for a mom.

10: 'So why did I choose a crazy snapshot like this to convey the virtues of an adoptive parent? Because my friend Teresa is just one cool lady. I could talk about her honesty, faithfulness, dedication and so on. But I want you to know how much fun she is - we walked 60 miles together for breast cancer and it was one incredible journey, a laugh every minute.! Any child placed into her hands and heart, will be blessed with love, laughter and great joy. Throughout our friendship we have talked many times about her dream of being a mother. Teresa instinctively knows what children need, a gift she has shared as a teacher. Although she cannot give life to a child she can give unending love. I know in my heart and soul that whatever child comes into Teresa's life, it will be the beginning of a beautiful life for that child! !
11: Supporting a wonderful cause with friends
13: I LOVE to laugh and act silly and have fun!
15: Teresa is one of my very best friends. She and I have been friends for 15 years. We met when we were teaching in Olathe, Kansas. We became fast friends and our friendship has grown since. We love to travel together and enjoy getting together with our “Supper Club” girlfriends monthly. Teresa is also very close with my two sons. She has been an important part of their lives since they were born ten years ago. She is one of the most caring people I know and will be an amazing mommy to a lucky child. ~Stephanie
16: Teresa's kind and accepting personality seems to simply draw children to her. My daughter and son adore Miss Teresa and are always excited to see her and share with her the important happenings in their lives. Perhaps it's because Teresa always greets them with as much enthusiasm and sincerely cares about what's important to them. One of the things that I admire most about Teresa is that she truly understands that the best things in life aren't things at all. She relishes time with her family, friends, and pups -her kids€. Teresa is a beautiful person and I know she will be an amazing mom.!
