Hi! My name is Raina, thank you so much for taking the time to learn about me! It takes a lot of courage and love to make an adoption plan and I couldn’t have more respect for your decision. Adoption has been a large part of my life as both of my brothers were adopted. I have seen how an open adoption can be impactful, and I am more than willing to explore and define that with you.
I grew up in North Idaho and am very close with my family. Most of them live close to me. Visits are frequent with my family members that live out of the area. I graduated with a Justice Studies degree and then a Master’s in Business Administration. However, I ended up a banker! I manage a branch for a wonderful company that allows me flexibility to spend time with my family.
I live in a small, but beautiful resort town. Between the surrounding mountains and lake I am always outdoors, and my two dogs are never far behind. I enjoy hiking, riding my bike, paddle boarding and snowshoeing mostly. When I’m not doing something outside, I am reading or volunteering. I love to travel (especially road trips to see my close friends) and watch live sports. I am so excited to be able to share my passions with my child.
Thank you again for learning more about me. I am so excited to be a parent and am very much looking forward to meeting you!
