dear expectant mother
First off, let me just say thank you for taking the time to read our letter and giving us the opportunity to introduce ourselves. Even though this is only a brief look into our lives, please know that we want nothing more than to have the chance to love a child. I know the emotions that we have felt over the years are only a fraction of what you are feeling right now. I wish I could reach out, give you a hug, and let you know that everything is going to be ok. You are an amazingly strong mother and woman to be able to make such a selfless decision. Adam and I hope you know that if you chose us, we will always love, care for, and support your child. Our love is unconditional and everlasting. Some greater force has led us to adopting and made it possible for us to connect with you. Your child will always know that they were loved by you and the sacrifices you made for them. It’s hard to put into word how humbled we are that you would consider us to raise your child and how grateful we would be if you chose us. We are beyond excited to be starting this journey with you and want to welcome you into our family!
Adam and I were both born and raised in Pennsylvania. We met through a mutual friend when we were 18 and we have been together ever since. By the age of 21, we were buying our first house, and two years after that, we got married! We recently celebrated our ninth wedding anniversary!
I started working in a Neonatal ICU right out of school. I truly found my niche, I just love it! I love knowing that I am really making an impact in someone’s life. Adam has worked for a family-owned construction company since he was in high school and is now the foreman of the company. Adam’s boss and his wife adopted a baby girl six years ago and have been a huge support for us. He also started his own construction business on the side. Additionally, Adam is a life member at our local volunteer fire department and currently holds the position of Chief. The fire department is like a second family to us.
Adam and I enjoy being outdoors whenever we can. When the weather starts to get nice, we like to take our bikes out on the local trails or around the lake at one of the local parks. Every year a group of us from the firehall go camping up north over Memorial Day weekend. If we are both off on Friday nights, we grab take-out, rent a movie, and snuggle on the couch with the puppies. We both share a love for Halloween and Christmas. We go all out decorating our house for both holidays and have a Halloween party every year. We also like to frequent the local flea markets and yard sales and I enjoy painting pottery and refinishing old furniture.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a cute little town, just north of a major metropolitan city in Pennsylvania. Adam and I fell in love with our house the moment we saw it. The location is a big part of why we love it; close to everything you need but not right in the middle of the city. It’s a three-bedroom ranch that is warm and inviting with a large kitchen and finished basement. We also have a big fenced-in backyard that has the perfect spot for a child’s swing set and sandbox. Our house is within walking distance of all the schools in the district and has a county park right at the bottom of the hill. The neighborhood is very close-knit and the neighbors across the street are like a second set of parents. We also have block parties for the summer holidays. We have three Chihuahuas, 5-year-old siblings, Charlie and Daphne, and our first furbaby, Peanut, who is 12. They are so sweet and love to snuggle with us.
Our Extended Family
Although I’m an only child, I come from a large Italian family. My mom was adopted when she was a baby and she could not be more excited to share that special bond with her new grandbaby. My parents love to keep busy; they go to antique car shows every Friday in the summer and love browsing the local flea markets and going to brunch on Sundays. As for my extended family, they are awesome! We are together for every holiday and with as many cousins as I have, there are plenty of birthdays to celebrate.
Adam is one of four children. He has two sisters, one older and one younger. They each have two children of their own and his older sister has a step daughter as well. Adam’s younger brother recently got married and is planning to start a family soon. His parents love to use their timeshare to travel all over the country. They are both looking forward to their newest grandbaby. We are also extremely close with Adam’s aunt and uncle. This past year, we started having the whole family over for dinner once a month, so as you can imagine when we all get together it is quite a party!
What Led Us To Adoption
I knew from the time that I was little I wanted to be a mother, and adoption was always something Adam and I had talked about. After a year and a half of marriage, we decided to try to start a family. Things did not come as easily as we hoped they would. A year went by with no luck and after consulting with my OBGYN, I started treatment for infertility. We were devastated. Six months after that, we sought the help of a fertility specialist, but quickly realized that it was not for us. Almost 7 years went by of us trying on our own, again talking to my doctor, and then talking more about adopting. We took this last year off just to try to heal, regroup, and change our focus. It seems like something was always guiding us in the direction of adoption. Though this process has been painful for us, I would not change a thing. I’ve grown more patient, I’ve learned to trust that there is light at the end of the tunnel and to appreciate what I have in life. It has also taught me how strong I am, and how strong we are as a couple. Nothing tests your marriage more than infertility.

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
