dear expectant mother
We thought this would be the hardest thing to write, but as we sit down together, we realize we know exactly what we would like to say. Words cannot begin to express how grateful we are for the opportunity to be considered in this process by you. We don’t know what it’s like to be in your shoes, but we do know being here is proof of your bravery and strength.
If you choose us, your baby will grow up in a loving and nurturing home and community. He or she will have the chance to spend days playing and learning on our small farm and nights cuddled up reading or catching fireflies with siblings. We have spent years creating the lifestyle we want for our children and believe they deserve the best.
We have been praying for every mother reading this that peace would overwhelm you if you believe we are the right choice for your baby. We would be overjoyed and overwhelmed with gratitude if you chose us to raise your baby. We would raise your child with you in mind, as a constant reminder to do our best and to make you proud and confident in your decision.
We are Brandon and Alexandria from North Carolina. We met in our senior year of high school, and right before graduation, we got engaged. We completed a year of college together in Maine while planning our wedding for July of 2016. Everyone thought we were crazy for getting married so young, but we knew without a doubt that we wanted to experience life together forever. We have two children, Lucas (5) and Aurora (1.5). Brandon is relaxed, honest, and hardworking. Alexandria loves to cook, read, and spend time outdoors. We love that Brandon’s work-from-home job has allowed our days to be more flexible, creating more time for us to spend together. We love creating memories with our children while gardening, building, tending to our goats and chickens, and hiking. Our entire family loves to play board and card games, and it is often a part of our “date nights.”
Our Home & Pets
We live in rural North Carolina with lots of opportunities to adventure nearby, like hiking, fishing, and camping. We are within 30 minutes of a downtown known for its art district, with many wonderful attractions and parks for children. Our home is on a private road in a peaceful neighborhood. We believe it’s very important to create a space where everyone feels welcome the moment they walk through the door. We often have friends from church over for dinner or Bible studies. We have a large backyard with a fire pit, conversation area, and lots of room for our children to run and play. On our farm, we have goats and chickens, and our dog, Nemi, who helps us keep them all in line.
Our Extended Family
Brandon’s parents are nearby and love spending time with our children. Alexandria’s mom and stepdad live in Florida in a 55+ park, where we travel twice a year and spend time with the older folks in the community. Most of our extended family is in Vermont, where we both grew up, and we visit once a year for our annual camping trip.
Alexandria’s family is large and loud with six siblings and over fifty first and second cousins. Our family reunions usually last two whole days spent playing corn hole, making a DIY slip and slide, eating good food, and talking by the fire until we can’t keep our eyes open. Alexandria grew up with an open-door policy, and that is something we strive to keep in our home. If we are home, family and friends are always welcome to stop by. Hospitality is very important.
Brandon’s family is smaller, just him and his sister, which is sometimes a welcome change in pace from Alexandria’s loud and large family. We can appreciate the calm and peace but also the chaos and commotion. We have dinners weekly with friends from our community and church as well who have become family to us.
What Led Us To Adoption
Since the day we met, we’ve both felt a tug toward adoption. We have spent the last six years preparing our hearts and lives for this opportunity. Through prayer and patience, we know with everything in us that this is our time to welcome another little one into our family. As soon as we talked about adopting and began this process, a peace fell over us, and we instantly knew this journey is the path we want to lead our family on.

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
