dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
I have so many thoughts, feelings, and curiosities about you. I imagine you must be resilient and courageous, as I imagine life doesn’t feel too easy right now. Please know that if you have made it this far and are reading my letter, I know for sure you are considering what the best option is for your baby despite how difficult it must be. I know this because we have an adoption story in my family as well. My cousin decided to place her child, which was the biggest decision of her life. In my family, we all see my cousin as a true hero. We are all so happy for her and her 21-year-old daughter since they were able to stay in touch over the years and now have a wonderful relationship.
If you choose me, I promise I will dedicate my life to being the best mother I can by providing unconditional love and support. We will do all of the things my mother did with me, from playing games and baking cookies to having deep talks and sharing life lessons. I can’t think of anything more desirable and fulfilling right now than seeing the world through a child’s eyes and watching them grow into a strong, confident, kind person with a life full of opportunities ahead of them. I would be forever grateful to you for providing such an opportunity and hope you could be involved in whatever capacity feels right for you.
I am a kind and compassionate optimist who loves children and animals and is deeply interested in knowing people. My career as a psychologist is reflective of my desire to connect with people, but I also have a continual desire to learn and travel. I’ve traveled to Europe, Mexico, and China and recently visited Iceland with friends, where we climbed glaciers and descended into volcanos. I’ve always had a passion for art as well, and with a bachelor degree in fine arts, I continue to paint and draw to satisfy my creative side. I create art frequently and also enjoy walking to work every day, exercising, and meeting friends in my neighborhood for coffee or dinner. On the weekends, I love exploring the city and visiting museums, aquariums, and parks, but I also love just having dinner parties and playing board games with my closest friends.
My Home & Pets
I live in a newly renovated home in a close-knit building on a quaint, tree-lined street two blocks from the main street at the heart of my neighborhood. My deck is my favorite part of my home as that’s where I’ve struck up conversations with neighbors and formed new friendships. Several friends live in my neighborhood and often pop in for an impromptu hang-out. My community is also full of families with lots of activities for children. The local bookstore has a children’s reading hour, and there are parks everywhere. Although I live in a city, my neighborhood is very removed from the hustle and bustle and is within walking distance to the beach, where I love to go with my friends and my adorable dog Ripley!
My Extended Family
My family was so overjoyed to hear I am on a journey to adopt. My immediate family members include my mother, father, sister, brother-in-law, and niece and nephew. My extended family includes several aunts, uncles, and cousins. My parents often send texts stating they can’t wait to be grandparents again and remind me that they’ve saved all of my niece and nephew’s toys, which are waiting to be played with!
My parents, sister, and her family live about 3 ½ hours away from me, and we visit as often as we can. We have all agreed that those visits will happen more frequently when I have a child. We can’t wait to pass on our traditions to a new member of our family, including attending holiday festivals, attending the air and water show every fall, going on architectural boat tours in the summer, and watching ballets like The Nutcracker every Christmas. And of course we have our traditions at home, such as baking Christmas cookies, carving pumpkins for Halloween, and just watching silly movies while playing board games and laughing together.
What Led Me To Adoption
I’ve been thinking about adoption for years and went to my first adoption meeting in 2011. At the time, I was in graduate school and knew I wasn’t able to raise a child in the way I dreamed of yet. Since then, I’ve seen friends adopt, and I’ve seen how beautiful their experiences have been. My mentor has adopted three children, and it’s been so heartwarming to see them grow into a happy family filled with much love and joy. I’ve arranged my life so I can provide a beautiful home and financial security and be in a position where I mostly work from home so I can spend as much time as possible with a child for all of their special moments in life.

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
