dear expectant mother
We’re incredibly grateful for you—for who you are and for how deeply and selflessly you love your child. We admire and appreciate your courage and strength as you consider an adoption plan and face these complex emotions and decisions. And we’re so grateful that you’re considering us as the family for your baby.
Your child joining our family would be such a gift to us. We would make sure they know how deep and wide your love for them is, and you would always be part of their life story. We want them to feel love from all sides—from you, from us, and from our families and friends who are all so eager to welcome them. They would grow up in a close-knit community with positive role models and a strong sense of belonging.
We will help your child to face challenges with excitement and confidence, to be brave when life is hard, to find the best in people, to grow their faith in God, and to love exploring and learning. We can’t wait to enjoy big holidays and the little moments of life together. We look forward to lots of family meals, playing in waterfalls, making forts out of blankets, traveling to new places, and snuggling up for storytime every night.
We know you have big decisions ahead as you plan the best possible life for your baby, and our heart is with you on that journey. Your love will help you find the right path.
We met the first day of college and have been best friends and teammates ever since. Adam wakes up every morning excited for the day, and he loves tackling interesting challenges with his team at the company he co-founded. Kearah teaches reading and writing to high schoolers. She loves laughing with them, helping them find their strengths, and seeing their pride when they grow. We spend a lot of time in nature, packing our days with adventures like hiking, biking, rock climbing, and running. In the evenings, we relax with good meals, board games, and snuggling up on the couch to watch movies. We also love learning, so we read a lot, listen to podcasts, take online classes, and have long conversations about new ideas and how God is growing us in our lives. We feel very blessed, especially with each other and with our family, friends, and church community.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a three-bedroom home with a beautiful backyard that looks out on rolling fields. In the summer, we eat most of our meals on the back porch, watching deer grazing in the morning and fireflies putting on a show every night. In the winter, we snuggle up by the fireplace to read, have hot cocoa, and roast marshmallows. Within walking distance are the local mall, ice cream shops, a paved biking trail, and a taco truck with the best take-out in town. Many friends with children live nearby, and we love playing together at local parks and hosting friends for Bible study. The Appalachian Mountains are close by, so there are dozens of hiking trails, waterfalls, state parks, and national forests to explore.
Our Extended Family
Our families are so important to us, and we’re grateful for all the love, fun, and craziness they bring us. Our parents are amazing models of what strong marriages and good parenting look like, and we’re very close to our five siblings, niece, two nephews, and lots of extended family. We love how diverse our families are; not only do we have biological and adopted family and different races in our family but our personalities, passions, and paths in life are all unique.
Our families live in different states, but we get together regularly, especially for holidays. In the summers, we love visiting Kearah’s family’s lake cottage. We have barbecues, pick blueberries for pancakes, kayak, go tubing, and have big Fourth of July parties that end with a beach bonfire, s’mores, and fireworks. Christmas is our favorite holiday with Adam’s family. It includes matching pajamas, a big Christmas Eve dinner, decorating piles of homemade cookies, and a silly gift exchange with his extended family.
Our church and neighbors are another family to us. We support each other through all the ups and downs of life, and we have Bible studies, potluck dinners, game nights, group hikes, and bike adventures together.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always been interested in adoption because we have lots of adopted relatives, including two of Kearah’s siblings and cousins on both sides. We’ve seen how multiracial families and adoption can add richness, love, and laughter to families. We also experienced years of infertility. Then we had our miracle daughter, but she was born with a problem in her lungs and only lived about a month. The loss was intense, but we have healed a lot, and she also brought us so much joy and love. We are more sure than ever that we have incredible love to share with a child, and we are so excited to be on the adoption path now.

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
