dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
We admire the strength and courage it takes for you to consider an adoption plan while you decide the best option for you and your precious child. We know this is not an easy choice for you, and we thank you for considering us. We want you to know we are surrounded by friends and family who love and support us and believe in this process. Should you bless us with this honor, your child will be safe, welcomed, respected, and free to express themselves. Our home is filled with love, laughter, openness, fun, and stability.
We were brought up with unconditional love and the ability to have opinions and ask for compromises. These are the things we want to provide for your child in our home.
We look forward to sharing our family traditions, starting our own traditions with your child, and having adventures as a family.
If you choose us, we will be dedicated to raising your child as an independent, respectful, and responsible adult. We look forward to the happiness your child will bring to our family and the happiness and love we will pour onto him or her. When your child has questions about you, we will be open and tell them how brave and strong you are. We can’t thank you enough for considering us to raise your child and making our long-time dream come true!
With thankfulness and love,
Bradley and Amanda
Our relationship was built on friendship and blossomed into a loving relationship after we met at work. Brad still works at the same company as Director of IT, and Amanda has pursued a career with a software company that will allow her to focus on family. We love spending time with our dog and having backyard barbecues with friends and family. Our home always has an open-door policy for our friends and their children and dogs. We love to travel, but when we are not, you can find us trying new foods, cooking, catching the latest movie, working on home projects, or finding a local adventure in our town. Brad was drawn to Amanda’s outgoing personality, and Amanda was drawn to Brad’s reserved nature. They say opposites attract! Our open mindedness and laid-back style mixed with our old-fashioned values not only brings us together but brings balance.
Our Home & Pets
We chose our family-friendly neighborhood based on the small town feel with big city accommodations minutes away. Our town has a top-rated school district and family-oriented activities. The neighborhood has a pond we like to fish and a greenbelt across the street that is the perfect place to let your child experience the great outdoors. We live in a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home with an open living/kitchen area. Our favorite part of the home is the large windows that face the spacious backyard. Our backyard has a grill area surrounded by flowers and with ample room for games, picnics, outdoor activities, and our dog, Millie, to run and play. We look forward to creating family memories in our loving home.
Our Extended Family
We are blessed to have both sets of parents living just 30 minutes away. Amanda often spends time at her parents’ house swimming, cooking, and watching movies. Amanda’s sister lives in Hawaii but is in constant contact and is excited to be an aunt. Brad’s parents like to come over for family dinner nights and to talk about our latest travels. They also are overjoyed about this process and look forward to welcoming a child into the family. Brad has family who live close by, and we have monthly get-togethers to catch up. Our friends are also family and are often included in these gatherings.
Holidays are full of making Christmas cookies and matching jammies, Easter egg hunts, pumpkin carving and trick-or-treating at Halloween, and hot dogs and fireworks on the Fourth of July.
We always wanted a house full of laughter. Everytime we have a gathering (no matter how big or small), we step outside and look in, watching our friends and family enjoying themselves in our safe and loving home, and we can’t help but smile. We want you to know your child will be loved and welcomed by so many.
What Led Us To Adoption
While dating, we discussed wanting a family, but we knew having biological children might be difficult. We started trying to have a family right away once we were married. Infertility treatments failed, but our desire to have a family remained strong. After speaking with Amanda’s adopted aunt, adopted godson, and the foster children of our dear friends, we knew adoption was the right path for us. We are firm believers that everything happens for a reason. We could not be more thrilled and overjoyed to start our family through the adoption 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
