dear expectant mother
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We can only begin to imagine how difficult and confusing it is to make the decisions you are facing. We want you to find comfort in the fact that whatever you decide, you are making the right decision for your child, whether you decide to place or parent.
If you choose to make an adoption plan, we want to assure you we value your role in this child’s life as their first mother. If you choose to, we want you to be a part of your child’s life so they can have appreciation for the tremendous amount of love and sacrifice you have shown to them. Regardless, your child will always know how much you love them and where they came from.
We want you to know we will love your child unconditionally. We promise to guide them through life with love, intention, and openness. We promise to provide an upbringing where kindness, love for others and generosity are taught every day. We promise to expose your child to the arts, sports, education, and nature. Through this, they will learn to love and appreciate the world and the different people and places that comprise it. We promise to inspire them to follow their dreams and to provide the tools needed to pursue them. We promise to provide your child with everything they need and to teach them to work hard for the things they want.
We met in 2009 on a blind date. We knew pretty quickly we were going to spend the rest of our lives loving each other. Life had a couple curveballs to throw at us, but through it all, our love grew stronger. We learned a long time ago that we can get through anything as long as we have each other. We love adventure, whether it's on the other side of the country or down the street enjoying a community event. We love to explore all of what life has to offer! We both volunteer for a local nonprofit that raises funds and awareness for breast cancer. Ashley sits on a few committees, and Andrew does a lot of volunteer work for various events throughout the year. Andrew works in insurance underwriting, and together we have a small business based out of our home, allowing Ashley to stay home full time.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a big, diverse community with a lot of small-town charm. We fell in love and got married where we live now and couldn’t be more excited to raise our family here too. We live in a quaint, three-bedroom house with plenty of space to play and explore outside. We spend a lot of time at a nearby pond enjoying the scenery and wildlife or walking through our historic downtown visiting all the small shops and boutiques. We have two incredible dogs, named Daphne and George, who can’t wait to have a new best friend to protect, as well as a sweet and cuddly cat named Toad.
Our Extended Family
We come from large, blended families spread out all over the United States. Between us, we have 15 nieces and nephews (and counting), and our families couldn’t be more excited to add one more. Being a part of blended families has given us the gift of unconditional love and knowing that blood plays only a small part in what makes someone family.
Since we have family all over the United States, we take advantage of holidays spent together when we can and cherish the moments we spend together. Collectively, Christmas is our family’s favorite holiday. We add new ornaments to our tree each year to represent the year we have had. Every year, as we put up our tree and take out our special ornaments, we are reminded of the people, pets, and important events of our lives. We love that our tree tells our family’s story.
What Led Us To Adoption
We’ve known since early on in our relationship that adoption was going to be a part of our story. Through a lot of discussions with each other and several doctors, we decided it was in Ashley’s best interest to avoid pregnancy. We’ve always had a sense of peace surrounding our decisions and have fully embraced all that is adoption. We know from the bottom of our hearts that our answer to growing our family is through adoption.

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
