dear expectant mother
While we have yet to meet, we think you are incredibly brave and strong. Choosing to bring your child into this world is an act of tremendous love. We have a deep appreciation and respect for you, your selflessness, and the gravity of the decisions ahead. We are profoundly grateful that our path has brought us to this point and know that our journey has delivered us to where we are meant to be. We are honored to be considered for this gift and promise your child unconditional love and support. We will work tirelessly to present them with every opportunity possible.
Should you choose us, they will be joining a warm, loving, and stable family. We can promise a safe and nurturing home, a college education if they so choose, and a childhood filled with family and fun. We will raise them to be compassionate, open-minded, and kind and to understand the importance of integrity, humility, hard work, dedication, and respect. We will explore the world together through travel and share our love of the simple joys of a life well lived. They will be showered with our love and that of family and friends, protected and adored by our two dogs, and surrounded by laughter. The unexpected ups and downs of life have taught us a great deal, and we are excited to share all that we’ve learned.
We look forward to incorporating and honoring your history and traditions into ours and are open to whatever type of adoption you choose.
We met in New York City in 2010 while working together and became fast friends. What started as a friendship driven by a love of food and passion for hospitality soon became something more. We dated for four years, adopted a rescue pup named Ziggy, and married in October of 2015. Shortly after, we relocated to South Carolina and found great jobs with a restaurant group who have become like family. Adam is the Director of Operations and Jenna the Financial Controller. We added a second pup named Cooper to the crew in 2019. We are best friends who cook together nightly and laugh constantly; Adam thinks he’s pretty funny, and Jenna hasn’t burst his bubble yet. Adam is a diehard baseball fan and voracious reader, while Jenna loves her yoga practice and making jewelry. Together we enjoy hiking with our dogs, traveling, and relaxing at the beach or pool with a good book.
Our Home & Pets
We live with our dogs, Cooper and Ziggy, in a beautiful, three-bed/two-bath, ranch-style home in South Carolina. Our community is closely knit, friendly, and full of young families. We enjoy spending time with our neighbors at the community pool and love relaxing in our beautiful backyard that overlooks a pond and several beautiful oak trees. Our area boasts a wonderful balance of natural beauty and amenities, such as great restaurants, shopping, and outdoor activities. We fell in love with our home in part due to its equal proximity to the beach, forests, and fun and cultural depth of our city.
Our Extended Family
Adam has an older brother, and Jenna has a younger sister. We both have relatively large extended families spread throughout the country. Adam’s parents have recently relocated to our area and are building a home ten minutes away from ours. It has been so wonderful to have them close by and spend even more time together.
We have several close and lifelong friends who are basically members of our extended family, and play a regular role in our lives as well. We go on an annual beach vacation as a big group with all of the kids, and it’s always a blast.
We love to cook and gather around the table and love any traditions that bring our family together to do so. Coming from different cultural and religious backgrounds, we celebrate lots of holidays in our unique way and plan to pass all of that knowledge and tradition on. For example, we always have a Christmas tree in December and light a menorah and eat latkes during Chanukkah.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always wanted to be parents but were unable to conceive naturally or through IVF. We took some time to digest and work through that reality and found our desire to start our family remained and was stronger than ever. Adoption was a natural and comfortable progression in our journey and has played a part in both sides of our family: Jenna’s sister is the birthmother to an adopted child, and she has a step-cousin who was adopted; Adam has two cousins who were adopted and played a large role in his childhood. We are excited to begin this next chapter of our lives and can’t wait to share what we have to offer with a child.

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
