dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
First let us say thank you. We do not know your story yet, but we do know you face a difficult decision. We view adoption as the most selfless act, and words do not express how grateful we are that you would consider us to raise your child. Your baby has been loved and prayed over long before we knew who they were.
We want to promise you this: If you choose us, your baby will always know how loved they are by us and most especially by you. We would love to have a relationship with you so that your child could come to know you and vice versa. However, we understand this is not everyone’s wish, and we respect that.
As an officer in the Navy, Zack is able to provide our household with a continuous state of stability and adventure. As a small animal vet, Alexa works flexible hours so she can prioritize our family. We are so excited to be able to share the world with your baby. Some of the things we most look forward to are reading to them, playing sports, nurturing their interests, and bringing them to parks, zoos, aquariums, and museums. We also look forward to weekly Taco Tuesday and pizza night, which bring us closer together.
Finally, we leave you with this. May you find comfort in this challenging time and peace in your decision.
Zack and Alexa
God introduced us during the summer of 2015 when we worked at a church-sponsored camp together. We initially started off as friends, but the romance blossomed once we attended Zack’s military ball that following fall. Two months later we relocated to opposite ends of the globe—Alexa to Australia to study veterinary medicine and Zack on deployment with the U.S. Navy. Our relationship formed through a series of handwritten letters, emails, and phone calls. We bonded over our love of travel, adventure, reading, and writing. Two years later, we married where we first met. Alexa has since moved back to the United States and works as a small animal vet, while Zack continues to work as an officer for the Navy. In our free time, we enjoy hiking with our dog, road trips, and singing silly songs throughout our day.
Our Home & Pets
We currently reside in a beautiful neighborhood in California. The community is very welcoming, with a church and lots of fun boutiques, beaches, and dining experiences. We have a fenced-in backyard, a soccer field in front of our house, and a playground just down the street. We share our home with our dog named Tormund, a gift to Alexa after finishing vet school, and two cats, Juno and Gracie. Our pets are our family, and we cannot wait to introduce everyone.
Our Extended Family
We both come from very close-knit and supportive families who are beyond excited about our adoption journey. Alexa has one younger sister, and both Alexa’s parents and her sister reside in Illinois. Zack has two younger brothers; both of Zack’s parents and one of his brothers live in Kentucky, while the other brother lives in Pennsylvania. In addition, we both have numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents across the country. Since our families are a bit spread out, we don’t get to see them as often as we like. However, we frequently call and FaceTime and always make time to visit both families around the holidays, a time we affectionately coined “Thanksmas.”
Although we only have the opportunity to see our family a few times a year, we make close friends wherever we go, and we consider them to be our family away from home. Currently, we are running a Dungeons and Dragons game with our next-door neighbors, and we meet every Sunday evening to play. We also have a church community we meet with on a weekly basis that has helped and supported us throughout our journey.
What Led Us To Adoption
Our story began in August of 2019 when we decided we were ready for a family. The next few years were followed by loss and infertility. Being unsuccessful so far yet determined to fill our home with children, we decided to look into adoption. Adoption was a foreign concept to us; no one in our family had ever adopted or been adopted. After much prayer and consideration, we now believe this is the path we have been called to. Our hearts fill with such joy when we think of the blessing that comes with raising your 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
