dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
While we do not know the exact circumstances you are in and what led you to this decision, we know it could not have been an easy one. You love your baby so very much that you want to nourish them with your body and provide them with the best life possible; there is nothing more selfless than that. We can imagine there is a spectrum of emotions you are going through, and we pray you treat yourself with the kindness and love you are giving your baby. In our perspective, there is no one stronger and more capable than you.
We think every day about how privileged we would feel if you would provide us with the gift of a child, and we would not take this responsibility lightly. We have worked so very hard to become the best versions of ourselves so we can give a baby everything they could ever need. Financially, emotionally, and physically, your baby will always be taken care of if you choose us, and you will never need to worry that they are not being provided the very best care. Thank you so much for considering giving us your selfless gift.
All the best,
Brandon & Amanda
Our story started in 2014 while we were both attending college. We instantly connected over our mutual love for nature, music, and trivia nights. We were married in 2019. We enjoy finding yummy new restaurants and making each other laugh. One of our favorite traditions is taking an annual vacation with our close-knit friend group to a new destination. Amanda loves to spend her free time by going on hikes and is also a wonderful cook. Brandon is very creative with a passion for music and art. He spends his free time playing drums and bass guitar. Brandon works in the video game industry, while Amanda works in human resources. We both have very stable and successful careers, and our companies support our adoption journey. We have had the opportunity to travel many places together and plan on continuing this exploration with our future child!
Our Home & Pets
We recently moved into our forever home in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Our home has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, two family rooms, and a large backyard. There is endless space for our child to run around and play with toys. Our neighborhood is full of families with children of all ages. We are surrounded by hiking trails, lakes, and parks that make for great family adventures. Our home is within walking distance of our district’s top-rated high school and elementary school. We have two dogs, Jameson and Cowboy, who love coming along for hikes or walks around our neighborhood. We recently remodeled our backyard and enjoy having friends and family over for BBQs and game nights.
Our Extended Family
Brandon is an only child and has a very close relationship with his mother and stepfather. He grew up with a close relationship with his cousins, and they treat each other more like siblings nowadays. He is known as “Uncle Brandon” to his cousin’s two daughters and has been a major part of their lives. His family lives in California, but they come to visit every couple of months and on all major holidays. His parents are considering moving to Washington to be closer to us and their future grandchild.
Amanda comes from a large family and has five brothers. Being the only daughter, she often was seen as the second mother in the family and would take part in the care for her siblings. Amanda and her family love to BBQ together for family events, and she has a wonderfully close relationship with her family.
While both of our families currently live in California, we always make it a point to visit each other as often as possible. We love hosting BBQs and summer get-togethers at our house or taking family vacations. Our families are so very excited to meet the new addition to our family and welcome them with open arms!
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always wanted to have children but are unable to conceive naturally. Adoption has always been something we’ve considered because we’ve seen firsthand how amazing adoption can be. Brandon has an aunt who was adopted, and her experience with her adoptive family and birthmother has left an incredible imprint on both of us. Now that we are ready to start a family of our own, we know adoption is God’s plan for us.

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
