dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
We want you to know from the bottom of our hearts that if you consider us to raise your baby, he or she will be loved and cherished. We will teach them the value of being kind, honest, and respectful. But most importantly, we will teach them the value of family and friendship.
Your child will grow up experiencing the outdoors, learning about nature and all it has to offer. We will take him or her fishing and hiking. We’ll take them camping and teach them how to make the perfect s’mores 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 will be part of a very loving family and will have so many cousins to play with. They’ll partake in our family holiday silliness, singing, dancing, and playing with their cousins. They will grow to know their aunts, uncles, and grandparents, who will love them unconditionally. Most of all, they will have us to raise them, to love them, and to be there for them always. If you consider us to raise your baby, we will be forever grateful for the joy you will 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 we have known each other to some extent for years. However, it wasn’t until about four years ago that we started dating and realized quickly we were meant to be together. Andrea is a middle school teacher and certified yoga instructor and loves running, reading, and spending time with her family. She is an amazing wife and one of the most caring people you could ever meet. Chris is a produce manager at a grocery store and an assistant at a local brewery. He is a dedicated home brewer and musician, enjoys spending time outside with our dog Otis, and has some projects going on at all times. (He built an awesome dock when we lived on a lake!) We spend most of our time together hiking with Otis, kayaking, playing board games, or spending time with our families.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a three-bedroom home in New Hampshire. The house was built in 1900 and has a lovely combination of some of the original features with more modern updates. We live in a small town, but it is just a 15-minute drive to the nearest city. We live with our chocolate Lab, Otis, and our bearded dragon, Corky. While there is plenty of space between our home and neighbors, everyone who lives on our road is friendly and kind. There are children in the neighborhood who play nearby, and the town park is just a few minutes down the road. Our town has lots of local shops, including ice cream stands, farm stands, and outdoor events to enjoy 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!Return to Waiting Families
