Iam 27 years old, I believe I was born in Romania in 1989 and grew upin an Orphanage before I was adopted. I do not know my biologicalparents since I was adopted by an American couple who moved with meto Vermont, North America. I don’t have any records prior to myadoption that might give me a clue of my biological background. Myadopted parents are now retired and lives in the countryside at hisfather`s dairy farm home. My adopted parents are both very differentin personality.
Myadopted father is the quite type who prefers to keep to himselfwhereas my adopted mother is very social and outgoing. Theirpersonalities to me were as a result of their family background, myadopted father is a farm boy who grew up in the countryside most ofhis life hence his reserved personality while my adopted mother isfrom a huge family in Connecticut hence her social and outgoingpersonality. I have grown up following my adopted father footstepssince I am a quiet and reserved person and we did get along betterwith him.
Idon’t recall any details about my birth and all I know is that Iwas adopted at age 8 from an Orphanage in Romania. Ever since I was achild my mother always says that at the Orphanage I was always alonesince I was either reading or trying to a puzzle and I think mypersonality is what made them adopt me especially we were very muchalike in personality.
Myearly childhood days were of a typical farm girl in Vermont, theenvironment was very friendly to me and it helped me during mytransition from Romania to Vermont in North America. My father workedas a essor in Agriculture at the University of Vermont, while mymother still works as a teacher, after my adoption my father decidedto retire and concentrate on parental issues and a dairy farm at hisparent`s family farm on a full-time basis.
Asa child, I liked the company of my father more and I followed himaround. He taught me a lot of useful life hacks over the years. Mymother loved social gatherings and always introduced me around to herfriends and the things that I did not like to do. My mother movedwith my father to the farm when he made his decision to dwell on. Asa family, in general, we were stable, and to date, my parents arestill together.
Istarted school at the age of five at the orphanage. When I arrived inVermont I continued with my early childhood education and at 16, Ijoined a high school. The transition from Romania way of life to theUnited States way was quite difficult. As I grew up, I become veryself-absorbed like my adopted father. In my adolescence stage, I wasfaced with normal teenage problems like arrogance and occasionaloutbursts but thanks to the guidance and mentorship of my dad whochanged my habits, and to date, I still thank my dad for making thatdecision and being part of my life. In the later years of highschool, I focused on my education and dropped everything else thatwas a distraction to me. I undertook my Advanced level exams andpassed with flying colors and graduated at The Deanery CE High Schoolin 2009.
Afterhigh school, I became a mother of a beautiful baby boy and motherhoodhas opened my eyes and motivated me to further my education so that Iwill be able to support my family. With a renewed ambition andmotivation, I decided to join college, to undertake nursing studies. I was accepted in college, and special thanks goes to my high schoolprinciple who vouched for me on my behavior and dedication.
Ienrolled to study Nursing following my father’s advice, and I amcurrently a second year at the College. Growing up, my dad has beenmy role model as he supported and helped me out during my troubledyouth times, I reconnected with him as my life`s role model andmentor who influenced my decision to study Nursing. But the maindrive into taking nursing studies is my baby boy, I want to be ableto give him a satisfactory and stable childhood as my adopted parentsdid.
Inmy first years of college, I was very confused, and it took me awhile to grasp the concepts we learned however currently, everyone isproud of how I have fared so far. Studies at the college level arekind of interesting since everything is new to me, with thefacilities available at the college I am now more keen on developingmy life and career choice as a Nurse. Not everything is as I expectedbut that`s just life, and so far I have adjusted well to the collegeenvironment.
Likewise,I have concluded my second year in College and the prospect ofgraduation is starting to take a toll on me as I am not certain ofwhat the future entails regarding employment. The college has taughtme to be my own woman due to the high level of independence given tome which I did not have before my joining college. It is now that theteachings of my parents and mentors are beginning to reflect on me,as I try not to fall back into my old habits I had when I was ateenager.
Currently,I am working at on a full-time basis at Umass University and parttime in private care and this was not only to keep me occupied whilewaiting for my return to college but also to earn a living andprovide for my son. I am now living with my husband and son inSpencer, Ma.
Myprimary goal at the moment is graduating with an honors degree andlater seeks employment as Anastasia Nurse seven years from now. Infive years I see myself as a proud mother and an Anastasia nurse witha successful career and a stable family. Life in college has alsogiven me an opportunity to practice personal accounting as a way ofmanaging my personal finance, and I have also started a health careprogram for my peers to help them better manage their health too. Indoing so, I have improved my skills in personal nursing leadershipand my efforts were also recognized by the department, and I receiveda commendation.
Inaddition to that, I have grown and developed a responsible attitudeand leadership skill. My aspirations and goals in life are now veryclear and realizable I plan to continue my work at the UmassUniversity and part-time private care so as to improve my skills andoverall know-how on nursing issues. The University gives me afamiliar and comfortable environment to develop my nursing skills ata practical level. This builds my confidence and commitment intoachieving my set goals. By 2018 I hope to have finished my nursingstudies and graduated.
At65 I envision myself to have retired and lived in the countrysidewith my family. My current dedication in College promises a brightfuture ahead due to the career choices I made and my ambition tosucceed. I plan to raise my son by building my family along thevalues and traditions of our family as passed on to me by my father. I don`t plan for an early retirement but work throughout myemployment years like my mum is doing. With an excellent pensionscheme that I will get, I will build myself a family home in thecountryside and join voluntary education of youths.
Thisidea comes as a result of my adolescence stage troubled and those whohelped me throughout the period and modelled me into the woman I amtoday. I believe that I have to give back to the community and enableyounger people to achieve their goals. During my employment, I wantto be a successful nurse with a reputation that others will live upto and take on a community leadership role at my retirement age. Ihope that at the age of 65, I would have had four children, two incollege and the rest in secondary school and that my kids will learnfrom the mistakes I made and be better people than I was.
Bylooking back at my life, my childhood days are my most memorablemoments of my life. As an Orphan, I was lucky enough to be adopted bytwo loving couples who treated me as their own and I will be gratefulmy whole life. Growing up with a loving and caring parents somewhatmade me the type of mother I am today since I was the only child andmy parents could afford a middle-class countryside lifestyle which isa favorable environment to grow in as a kid. In my adolescence stage,my dad helped me through advice and mentorship thereby shaping meinto a responsible, knowledgeable and creative person and this mademe get into college where I am today.
Onreaching college I have set my goals for the future, and I choose tonurse as a career, and later I have decided to venture into nursingmanagement as a result of the advice of my father and lecturer.Currently, I have acquired several life skills including leadershipskills and nursing skills. The college gave me the freedom to developinto a responsible young girl and be an example to my peers. In thenext five years, I see myself as an Anastasia nurse with a successfulcareer ahead and my family at my side throughout my years ofemployment to retirement. At age 65, I want to relocate with both myson and husband to the countryside where I will take up a leadershipposition and give back to the community as a whole. I also wish tohave modelled my baby boy into a responsible young man.
