About Me

My name is Jackie and I knew I wanted to be a mother since the age of 13.  In 2015, I decided to take the plunge and move full steam ahead on my journey to single motherhood by choice. My father had just turned 80 years old and his health had been declining rapidly.  At best, he may have a few more years on earth and I was determined to make sure he experience his first granddaughter before his final days with us.

I was born and raised in Orange County and now live in Oakland, California.  A CPA by trade, I have spent my professional career in the asset management space.   Most importantly, I am a "Choice Mom" to Baby J, my beautiful daughter.  She is my absolute biggest dream come true.

I am on this amazing journey with our "Choice Family".  Baby J was born into an amazing village of multiple grandmas, grandpas, and countless uncles and aunties.  She is already dearly loved.

We share our story here in hopes to inspire others.  My number one goal is to provide a happy and loving life for Baby J the best I know how.  As many of you know, families can be created in many different ways.  I have three wonderful half-brothers; we each have different mothers or fathers yet we share a powerful bond.

Welcome to my blog and thank you for being here and for joining us on this amazing beautiful journey of our "choice family".
