On deciding that she wanted to adopt:
Kirsten: Adoption is a huge leap of faith for everyone.I have been thinking about it for a long time and it has taken me a while to feel that I could take on parentood by myself. It is a huge change in my life, but one I am so ready for.
On going through the adoption process:
K: I was nervous about weather it would work out. Then when Gemma came to my house she was so tiny and precious that I was nervous I would hurt her. It is an amazing thing to be responsible for a tiny baby and I just wanted her to have the best care and all the love possible.
On choosing her name:
K: I had a list that I liked for her first and middle name, but I wanted to spend time with her before I chose them. I have always loved Gemma and Rose. My daughter is so beautiful that she’s a gem and a rose.
On becoming a mum:
K: Having this wish come true is even more gratifying than I’d imagined. I feel so blessed.
On how she is finding motherhood:
K: I love taking care of Gemma more than I ever could have imagined. She is a very easy baby, she is easily soothed and is sleeping really well. She lets me know when she is uncomfortable and knows how to speak her mind already – in her own baby language, of course.
