dear expectant mother
I admire your strength. It is never easy to make a life-changing decision, and it requires an enormous amount of strength. No one will ever understand what this decision will demand from you. There is a quote that says, “We don’t even know how strong we are until we are forced to bring that hidden strength forward.”
My son and I pray for you and your child every night. We pray for you to know your child will be welcomed into a home full of love, laughter, family, and friends, and we pray for you to know your child will have the opportunity to swim at the lake in the summer, play in huge leaf piles in the fall, build snowmen in the winter, and splash in muddy puddles in the springtime. There will be baking of cookies, holiday celebrations, and hugs and kisses galore!
Your child will always know what a treasured gift you are to me and how your strength gave me the chance to be blessed with another child. You and your child are already members of our family—and we can’t wait to meet you.
I thank you for your consideration and feel blessed for the opportunity.
As an independent single woman and mother, I have been able to surround my son with positivity, faith, and affection. 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. Or we simply play in our yard and enjoy nature. I am fortunate to reside in competitive public and private school districts, both in academics and athletics.
My Extended Family
My extended family includes my parents, who have been married for 46 years. I don’t know how I was so fortunate to have God give me the parents I have; they have supported all of my decisions, and I have always respected and admired them. My son certainly loves visiting his Papa and Mimi! If he is not baking with Mimi, then he is in the basement tinkering with tools with Papa.
I’m lucky to have a funny and sarcastic younger brother who is a lover of the outdoors. My sister-in-law is a wonderful aunt and a reading teacher. My niece is 13, and my nephews are 10 and 8. 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!
The decision I made to go forward with adoption was not necessarily an easy one. It came after much prayer and consideration following unsuccessful attempts on my own to become pregnant. After being put in touch with a woman who knew she would be unable to care for another child, I was blessed to become a mother for the first time in September 2017. The love I have for my son is something that has me in awe every day. I have been so humbled by her decision and so honored to have this child 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
