dear expectant mother
We can’t imagine how you feel right now, but we want you to know we are thankful for you and the potential to get to welcome your little one into our family. In an effort to let you get to know us a bit better, we have included some of our biggest priorities as parents below.
We love fiercely. Loving unconditionally is definitive in our home. Differences in race, gender, blood, sexuality, or religion are met with love and our promise to provide support in navigating this world we live in. We love one another for who we are and always encourage and lift each other up.
We laugh often. Laughter gets us through the best and worst days. Alli will commonly laugh until she cries, and Tyler can’t help but join in on the silliness. Even on the worst of days, we look for things to find joy in.
Family is forever. Our family is not defined by anything other than love and acceptance of one another, and once we gain a new family member, they will forever have a loyal team beside them. No family is perfect, but we can confidently say we are there for each other day in and day out.
We have thought a lot about how to write this letter, and we want you to understand how thankful we are for you. If you feel comfortable, we would love to talk with you further so you can get to know us better.
You’re an incredible person, and we are thankful for you.
Alli and Tyler
We met in college and have been together for the last 13 years. Our relationship is built on our love to laugh, appreciation of really good food, and genuine friendship. Putting these facts aside, we are quite different. Alli is an engineer, and she is a planner, organizer and detail oriented person. Surprisingly enough, she also loves celebrities and reality TV. Tyler is a chiropractor for baseball players. He is an abstract thinker, loves a good challenge and thrives in a more disorganized environment often involving procrastination. Together, we have built a beautiful life! We have two dogs and two daughters. Our favorite hobby is spending time with family, whether it be playing outside, hiking, family movie nights or family game nights. By demand of our little gals, we also enjoy cartoons, an absurd amount of crafting, and attending dance classes!
Our Home & Pets
We live in a southern Illinois community just outside of Missouri. Our neighborhood is full of children. If it is nice outside, our older daughter is outside playing with friends. We have a large, fenced-in backyard with a playground and trampoline that is well loved by our children and their friends. Our pups play a significant role in our life. Our tiny, five-pound maltipoo, Oatmeal, is a bundle of energy. He is spoiled by all of us and thinks his life goal is to be held and loved. Our well-fed husky, Kodi, is genuinely the most entertaining dog we have ever met. Although very chill, he is the goofiest dog, and he loves to entertain us with his facial expressions and silly demeanor.
Our Extended Family
We love family time, and luckily for us, Alli’s family lives in the same town we live in. Our daughters are obsessed with their grandparents, aunt, uncles, and cousins. As a family, we celebrate birthdays, holidays and simply hang out regularly. Throughout the summer, we have family cookouts and spend time swimming at Alli's parents' pool.
Tyler’s family lives about an hour away in the town he grew up in. We get to see them on holidays and weekends, and we commonly see his extended family when visiting his hometown.
What Led Us To Adoption
Alli grew up in what some people consider an “unconventional” family as both her brother and sister were adopted. Growing up, her household was loud, exciting, and full of life, and to this day, there is never a dull moment when they spend time together. More than anything, we want that same family environment for our children. We have two beautiful daughters, and due to fertility complications, we are no longer able to have biological children. We are excited to expand our family and begin our adoption journey. Adoption is a path we have always known we would travel down, and we are so thankful to begin this process!

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
