dear expectant mother

Hello! My name is Thea. It is pronounced like “Tay-ah.” It was my great grandmother’s name. My older sister was adopted as an infant. In my family, adoption was a natural way of being a family and had a major impact on how I view family. For me, a family has never been bound by biology – it is bound by love.

I am honored that you would consider me to parent your child. I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about what to say in this letter. I can honestly tell you that I will love your baby with all of my heart, protect them, share the magic of the world with them, teach them to be playful and to love, and I will help them find their path in life.

Throughout my life, I have learned that we don’t know everything that goes into making a difficult decision but we can trust that people make the best decisions for their lives and respect them. My parents always respected my sister’s birthmother’s decision, trusting that she made the best decision for my sister and herself – and my family was so blessed as a result. I have the same trust and respect for your decision.

Thank you for considering adoption and for considering me. I am truly grateful. I look forward to hearing from you and hopefully connecting over this amazing journey together.

About Me

Hi! I am so excited at the prospect of becoming a mom. I am in a great place in my life and so ready to have a child.

I have built a stable career working at a university for nine years, where I am director of a program that works with low-income communities giving people a voice and decision-making power over what happens in their neighborhoods. I also bring resources and services into communities to help improve people’s lives. Additionally, this job provides great benefits (over 5 weeks of vacation a year!) and flexible hours (like working from home) that will be perfect for being a single mom.

I love the water and being outdoors including swimming, camping, boating, biking, and going hiking. I have been a certified diver since I was 13 and my dad and I have gone on many dive trips together. I love traveling and learning about other cultures and art. I also like gardening, cooking, and making arts and crafts projects at home.

My Home & Pets

I live in a cozy two-story single family home in a diverse and family oriented neighborhood. My home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms and lots of natural light. There is a big kitchen with a breakfast nook that opens up into the backyard patio and garden, which is perfect in the summer for barbeques.

I have lived in the neighborhood for nine years and have great neighbors. There is a wonderful large park a block from my house that has a beach with a swimming lagoon, walking trails, a playground, soccer field, basketball court, and a baseball field. There are also several other neighborhood parks within walking distance and great neighborhood schools.

My Extended Family

I have an amazing support system of family and friends. My family includes my dad, older sister, her husband, and my two nieces and nephew. I am very close with all of them. We play games, have dinners together, see movies, go on annual camping trips, and, of course, regular holidays that often also include close friends. One of our favorite holiday traditions is making Lefsa, a traditional Norwegian dish, at Christmas. My circle of friends includes couples, single moms, and married couples with children. We enjoy going to the movies, festivals, concerts, and to parks together. My family and friends fully support my decision to adopt and are excited to welcome a little one into their hearts and lives.

What Led Me To Adoption

I have always wanted to be a mom. I have been blessed with a great career that has given me amazing opportunities and experiences. However, there has been a missing piece, having a child. The time is perfect for me to start a family and I am in a great place in my life where I am able to provide a loving home for a child. I am excited to begin this journey and so looking forward to sharing my life with a little one. My sister was adopted so I know just how amazing the gift of adoption can be for a family.

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!
