dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
We want you to know from the bottom of our hearts how much we appreciate you taking the time to read and learn about our family. It’s an honor and we cannot wait to get to know you.
Your child would grow up experiencing the outdoors, learning about nature and all it has to offer. We will take them fishing, hiking, camping, and most importantly, teach them how to make the perfect s’more, all while getting too much chocolate and marshmallow all over our faces. We will teach them to love the simple things, like riding their bike and running through sprinklers. We’ll have family game nights with Jenga and more.
Your child would be part of a very loving family and will have so many cousins to play with! They would partake in our family holiday silliness, singing, and dancing; grow to know their aunts, uncles, and grandparents, who will love them unconditionally. Most of all, they will have us to love them, and to be there for them always. Thank you for considering us to raise your baby, we are forever grateful for the joy you would bring to our lives. It would truly be a blessing and we will do everything we can to give your baby the best life they could possibly have.

Andrea is best friends with Chris’s sister, so our families have known each other for years! When we started dating, we didn’t tell them so they wouldn’t be disappointed if it didn’t work out. Shortly after, we were actually both invited over for dinner with the whole crew and had to pretend we didn’t really know each other! However, we realized quickly we were meant to be together.
Chris is a manager at a grocery store and an assistant at a local brewery. He is a dedicated home brewer, musician, and enjoys spending time outside with our dog, Otis. Andrea is a third grade teacher and certified yoga instructor. She loves running, reading, and spending time with family. She’s an amazing wife and one of the most caring people you’d ever meet. We spend most of our time together hiking, kayaking, playing board games, or spending time with family. We love to be outdoors- we went camping for our honeymoon!
Our Home & Pets
We live on 1.3 acres in a 3-bedroom home in New Hampshire. We live with our chocolate Lab, Otis, and bearded dragon, Corky. Otis is the laziest dog and isn’t as fond of hiking as we are! He loves just chilling and has been known to let kids use him for a pillow. We also have a chicken coop with chickens, which our nieces and nephews love! Our home is in a small town, but just a 15-minute drive to the city. It’s a quiet community and everyone who lives on our road is friendly. There are children in the neighborhood who play nearby, and the park is just a few minutes down the road. Our town has lots of local shops, ice cream stands, farm stands, and outdoor events in the nicer weather.
Our Extended Family
We are incredibly close with our families and value spending time with them whenever possible. Your child will be brought up surrounded by many aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, and great-grandparents. Our families are tremendously supportive of our adoption journey. They are ready to welcome and love your child.
Andrea is very close with her two sisters. Her younger sister lives with her husband, their two children, and their parents. We visit them several times a month, and we lived with them for a while while transitioning into our new home! Andrea’s favorite tradition is eating Chinese food with her family on Christmas Eve then watching Santa drive by on the fire truck. It is a favorite childhood memory and even better now that we get to share it with her niece and nephew!
Chris has two sisters he is very close with. His older sister lives with her partner and has three sons; his younger sister is married and has two daughters. Chris’s parents live on the beach with their French bulldog, Dublin. During get-togethers, all of the kids like to put on talent shows for the adults. It’s so much fun and there’s never a dull moment.
What Led Us To Adoption
We had talked about the possibility of adoption pretty soon after we were married. We knew there was a chance Andrea wouldn’t be able to conceive, and we knew we wanted to expand our family and begin exploring other options. From the start of the conversation, we were both in agreement that adoption was the right choice for us, whether or not we conceived biologically. Since we began looking into adoption, our love of the idea has only grown, and we knew we would be willing to do whatever we needed to for it to become a reality.

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!
