dear expectant mother

Thank you for considering your choices for you and your baby. We know that we haven’t met you yet, but we want to thank you for your strength and courage as you look into making an adoption plan for your precious little one. We cannot imagine how you are feeling right now as you read this, but we know that you will do everything you can to make the best choice for both you and your baby.

We have talked about wanting to adopt since before we were married, so you and your child have been in our prayers and on our hearts for a LONG time, and we are so grateful that you are taking the time to get to know our family through this letter and our profile. We would love to open our hearts and our family to you and your little one, if you so choose. Your little gift will be loved beyond belief. Please know that no matter what you choose, we wish you, your child, and your family all the best.

About Us

Chris is a veteran of the U.S. Air Force and has been fortunate enough to travel the world. He has been employed with the local government for nearly 17 years. He has three boys from a previous marriage ages 13,14, and 16. Amanda has also traveled and lived in many places. We met through a mutual friend in 2010 and remained friends until 2012, when a romantic relationship formed. Having the foundation of friendship first has allowed us to bond together as the best of friends. We love to travel and explore new places, from cruising the Caribbean to hiking the mountains to boating the lakes of Michigan. We enjoy having a date lunch together every Monday and also seeing comedy shows together on the weekends. We are so excited about adding a little one to our adventures!

Our Home & Pets

We live in a wonderful four-bedroom, three-bath colonial that boasts over 2900 sq. ft. of living space. Attached is a magnificent three season screened room, and we’re located in a very safe and quiet golf community. Our home has nearly an acre of land, which has plenty of room to play. We have an extremely close relationship with our neighbors and oftentimes think of them as family. We have two very intelligent, friendly, and affectionate goldendoodles. Their names are Maybin and Marley, or M&M for short.

Our Extended Family

We are both very close with our families. Unfortunately, both of our families live in other states, but we do see them as often as possible. Chris’s parents live in Arizona while Amanda’s live in Kentucky, and we enjoy vacationing at both places every year. Although we get to visit Kentucky much more often since it’s closer, we do enjoy hiking Sedona when we are in Arizona. The weather is so beautiful in Kentucky that boating and camping with family are a must when we visit there. Chris’s mom visits us every July, and we usually go camping to Torch Lake or ride bikes on Mackinac Island. Amanda’s mom tends to visit us earlier in the year, usually in April for Easter. We enjoy taking our moms on cruises to various places each January.

What Led Us To Adoption

Amanda endured a trauma in 2010, which led to her infertility. During that time, Amanda was fortunate to have the ability to harvest her eggs and ultimately decided to donate them to a friend who was also struggling with becoming pregnant. Shortly after the donation, the friend announced she had become pregnant, and she later gave birth to a son, followed by a daughter. Amanda has been blessed to be able to watch both children grow up. Amanda made a decision then that her family plan would someday include adoption and/or fostering.

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!
