dear expectant mother
Thank you for taking the time to read this letter, and thank you for considering an adoption plan for your baby. We know that even considering an adoption plan means you love your child more than anything in this world, so much so that you are willing to allow another family, who can provide and care for your child, the opportunity to do so. The gravity of your situation is not lost on us.
We will make sure your child grows up in a loving and nurturing environment. We believe knowing where you came from is just as important as it is to know where you’re going. Your child will know that he or she is loved beyond measure, both by you and your family and us and our family. We can provide a loving home with structure and stability. We will instill principles of having compassion for others, working hard for what you want, and being kind to all.
Traditions are important to us. We pass ours down like our parents before us. If there are any traditions that are important to you and your family, we are more than happy to see that those are passed down to your son or daughter as well. No matter what, you are the mother of your child, the one who gave them life. The gift of life is the one thing that we can’t give a child. For that, we are eternally grateful.
We both have office jobs and work 8-5, Monday through Friday. Nicholas works as an I.T. supervisor at a company that oversees several businesses, and Alexis works as a secretary at a financial investment firm. We have family as close as a block away and see them all week; we also share custody of our daughter, Juliana, and have her every other weekend and trade holidays.
Family game night is every other Saturday night and is everyone’s favorite night! At least two times a year, the three of us go to a wonderful wilderness lodge resort as a mini-family vacation. We also enjoy going to an occasional professional NBA games. When we don’t have our daughter, we usually spend time at home with our dog and cats.
Our Home & Pets
We have a four-bedroom, two-bath, single-level home with a privacy fence, an in-ground pool in the backyard, and a covered patio. It’s a quiet neighborhood, with hardly any through traffic. We have two cats and one dog we love to play with and cuddle, but we are also close to several parks, and there are always events for kids going on in our city. We spend a lot of time playing family games, baking/cooking, and swimming in our home, and we take advantage of the parks, events, and museums whenever possible.
Our Extended Family
We have large families, and we have a lot of events with them all year. Everyone is eager to have a new little one, and the nephews and nieces are so eager to have another cousin; it’s all they talk about anymore!
Nicholas’s family comes to stay every Memorial Day. They come with the nephews, and all of the cousins swim and play while the adults visit, grill, and bake. Thanksgiving is alternated every year between going to visit Nick’s family in Texas and visiting with Alexis’s family, who live a few blocks away. In the Spring and Fall, we take a trip to Missouri and go to Big Cedar Lodge.
Christmas is always a big deal. We pick out a Christmas ornament as a family and take Juliana to visit Santa, the elves, and his reindeer. On Christmas Eve, we look at Christmas lights and go to dinner with Alexis’s father’s family. Christmas morning, Santa leaves letters for the kids on the tree, and we go to Alexis’s mother's house and play the piano and sing carols.
What Led Us To Adoption
From the first time we spoke about our future together, we had a conversation about adoption. Alexis’s grandmother was adopted, and being directly touched by adoption, and someone so dear to her, means Alexis has always wanted to adopt. Knowing how precious this process is, we agreed that adoption was something we needed to pursue. Then, four years ago, Alexis had a hysterectomy, and, at that point, it was clear adoption was the only path we will take to expand our family.

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
