Before I Die
By: Lauren Smith
I want to adopt a few children from Africa who are homeless to give them a loving home.
I want to become a kindergarten teacher and shape the relentless and darling children who are so eager to learn. I want to laugh at their silly stories and smile in their great accomplishments.
I want to have a family who loves each other and enjoys their company. I want to spend countless summers watching my sweet and crazy little ones grow into inspiring individuals.
I want to travel all over the world to see God's impeccable creations. My first couple of stops would be Israel, Italy, and Bora Bora.
I want to swim with sharks in South Africa with the Great Whites. I hope to see the magnificent creatures up close in person.
I have watched videos about adopting children and have witnessed adoptions around me. I have thought about what age group I would adopt and have decided on toddlers.
I have been taking a internship through the BCTAL in which I spend many hours in a kindergarten classroom at W.A. Porter. I also work with children at my job. I have been accepted to Tarleton State University for next year as an elementary education major.
I have spent time with my family soaking up the great examples from my mom and dad to serve as a platform for my future family.
I have talked to my mom who works for american about flights.
I haven't convinced any one to do this with me yet.
I plan to do this in my late twenties.
I hope to do this right after I get my degree at 21 years old.
My late twenties for the rest of my life.
Before I die... even when I'm 100 years old I hope to continue to travel.
As soon as possible!
