Hi! My name is Sharifa.

I’m originally from the beautiful island of St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands.

I am a single, working woman who has always dreamed about being a mother. I look forward to the day when my dream of motherhood comes through. I will love, protect, and cherish your child, and I will surround him or her with family and friends who will do the same.

I grew up on a Caribbean island enjoying the beach, local cuisine and music. Mangos, snow cones, seafood, and calypso music are all memories from my childhood.

For college, I left St. Croix and moved to Tennessee to attend Vanderbilt University. I majored in engineering there and later attended grad school in Atlanta, Georgia. I currently reside in Minnesota, where I work full time.

A strong desire to be a mother has led me down the path of adopting as a single woman. This is something I have thought about for some time now, and I am so excited to be a mom!
