This was fun! Mine became a bit of a story
My name is Natalie Rose, I am 23 years old and grew up in West Hills, LA. I think that my mother must have chosen my first name because I was born on Christmas Day.
I was raised by my wonderful foster parents, Christopher and Jennifer Greer. Chris and Jen met later in life and were unable to have children of their own, they took me and my older brother (Mateo James, aged 27) and sister (Lily Maria, aged 24) in when I was 3 years old, after my Mom died (Lily and I have the same father and Mateo has a different father).
With the support of my guardians, I was lucky enough to gain a scholarship to study at UC Berkeley, majoring in Psychology. I aspire to become a psychologist so that I can help people who suffer with mental health disorders, like my birth Mom did. I am currently working a Psychological Assistant with young women who are recovering drug addicts.
My husband is Dominic James and he is also 23 years old, we met when we were 19 and dated for 4 years before we got married. He attended college at Riverside and majored in Medicine. We first met at a fundraiser for a Children's Hospice, he was dressed as a dinosaur surrounded by children, it was only later that I found out that he was a trainee doctor, and not a hired children's entertainer as I had thought! Dominic is at the beginning of his career and currently works in the ER. He aspires to become a Consultant Paediatrician, specialising in Oncology.
I will always remember the day that Dominic proposed. It was Christmas Day, and he had carefully wrapped the ring in a box which he had placed under the tree. It was so special.
We got got married earlier this year. The wedding service took place in a beautiful church with all of our friends and family in attendance. My sister Lily was my Maid of Honor. Chris gave me away and he said afterward that it was the proudest moment of his life.
We honeymooned in Italy, a place that I have always wanted to visit. We spent 4 weeks backpacking from Venice in the North, down to Naples (best pizza in the world) in the South, through beautiful Florence and historical Rome.
We have now returned to California, and having expected to move in with Dominic's parents, had a huge shock when Dominic's Great Aunt Beatrice sadly passed away. What we didn't expect was for her to leave her Mansion in San Francisco to Dominic in her will.
We are now getting ready to move to our new home and have just found out that we are expecting our first child, a little girl.
We have decided to name her Florence Beatrice - in honor of her Great, Great Aunt and the beautiful city of Florence which we fell in love with on our honeymoon.
What we don't yet know is that we are destined to have 6 more children. Our children's names will be:
Florence Beatrice (g)
Maximilian Christophe (b)
Zachary James and Evangeline Maria (b/g twins)
Phoebe Jennifer (g)
Marguerite Claire (g)
Isabella Rose (g, adopted)
Leo Dominic (b, adopted)
Both of our adopted children are American. Isabella came to us when she was 3 years old, and Leo came to us as a 9 month old. We decided to adopt because we know the difference that it made to my life being fostered by two such amazing foster parents.
We will gain an 8th (furry) child when we adopt our gorgeous puppy Rhett who we find abandoned on the PCH.
