dear expectant mother
Along my career path I have worked with women who have made the immensely difficult decision to place their baby for adoption. You will always love your baby and that is not something anyone can take away from you. There will always be an emotional bond with this baby and you. The birthmoms that I have worked with are by far the bravest and strongest women I have met; I will make sure your baby will always know and understand that.
There is nothing I can do or say that will make this decision any easier for you. There is nothing I can promise simply other than your baby will come into a home filled with love and a strong faith in God. It will include an extended family and large network of friends who will provide a lifetime of love; an extended family and large network of friends who will provide strong male role models for either a boy or a girl; help keep family traditions such as the 4th of July family picnic, learning to cast a fishing line or cutting down our Christmas tree.
I can’t express emotionally what it feels to write this. To try and express through words how I want to be and given the chance at becoming a mom--when in my chance, your opportunity ends. It is a bittersweet moment. It is not giving up or quitting. It is a beginning. For your consideration, I thank you and feel blessed for the opportunity.
As an independent, single woman, I have been able to surround my son with positivity, faith and affection, and I will ensure I will provide the best possible experiences, education, family, and love any child could ever want or need. As a women’s health nurse practitioner (NP), I work with women through all ages, and stages, of their lives. The bonds I create with my patients are the best part of my job. Outside of work, I cherish time spent with my son, niece and nephews, and immediate family. We try to spend as much time together as possible. I enjoy cooking and baking, golfing, photography, gardening, and singing in my church choir.
My Home & Pets
My quaint home with a large yard (including vegetable and flower gardens) is located in a quiet neighborhood only one block from a park that includes a well used walking and bike path throughout the spring, summer and fall. My son and I go for daily walks with the wagon when the weather is sunny and warm or daily sled rides when the snow is on the ground.
I am fortunate to be in a competitive school district in both academics and athletics. This also includes private Catholic schools.
Unfortunately, due to my allergies, ours is a pet-free home; but we enjoy the company of our neighbor’s dog, Joker, when he is out playing in their yard.
My Extended Family
My extended family includes my Mom and Dad who have been married for 46 years. I don’t know how I was so fortunate to have God give me the parents I do; they have supported all of my decisions and I have always respected and admired them; but now seeing them as grandparents only makes me respect and admire them all the more.
I’m lucky to have a funny and sarcastic brother who is a lover of the outdoors--especially hunting and fishing. My sister-in-law is a wonderful aunt, and a reading teacher by profession. Their three children: my niece is 12 going on 30. She is a sarcastic book-worm like her Auntie, but also an athletic and artistic young lady. My nephews, are 9 and and 6, and are your typical rough-housing, Lego building, football playing (go Packers!), hunting and fishing boys. They are also the most sensitive and loving boys as well and they are so good to their cousin.
My entire family, which includes several close friends, have lovingly welcomed my son and are beyond thrilled at the thought of him becoming a big brother!
Our Adoption Story
The decision I made to go forth with adoption was not necessarily an easy one. I am thankful to have the full support of my family and friends in any decision I have made about adding children into my life. In September 2017, I was truly blessed to become a mother for the first time! The love I have for my son is something that has me in awe every day. I was put in touch with a woman who knew she would be unable to care for another child and give him the life she wanted him to have. I have been so humbled by her decision and so honored to have this baby in my life. I continue to provide updates and photos via text with his birth mother.

Choose a Family for
Your Baby With Confidence
As you browse our list of hopeful adoptive parents, you can feel confident in knowing that all of the adoptive families working with Angel Adoption are prepared to offer your baby a safe, stable, and loving environment along with a wealth of opportunities for a happy and fulfilling life.
Each adoptive parent has been thoroughly evaluated through a home study course conducted by a licensed agency. A completed home study means the family is emotionally, physically, and financially ready to adopt a baby.
The home study process includes assessments of each parent’s character, marital stability, financial situation, lifestyle, and medical history. The agency also runs background checks to verify there is no record of criminal activity or child abuse. In addition, a social worker will inspect the family’s home to ensure it is a safe environment for a child.
Furthermore, Angel Adoption requires each family to be educated on adopting and parenting. After a baby has been placed with the adoptive family, a social worker will continue to monitor and supervise the family. We go to great lengths to make sure all the families you have to choose from are going to be excellent parents for your baby!Return to Waiting Families
