dear expectant mother
We can’t begin to imagine the difficult decisions you have had to make already and the ones still ahead of you. We know this decision to consider adoption is not an easy one to make. Your courage and strength are incredibly admirable, and your child will always know of the selfless decision you made for them. We can’t begin to express how grateful and humbled we are to even be considered by you for this. It is something we do not take lightly. Both of us had the incredible blessing to grow up in houses where we weren’t just told about unconditional love but were shown it. This is the center point that we strive to provide within our own house every day.
Know that your child is already immensely loved and cared for. Our families, friends, and we already pray over you and your child daily. If you choose us, your child will grow up in a huge family where every person has love to give and is already rooting for your child. Thank you for your selfless decision. We will remind your child of the first one to love and choose the best for them—you!

We are Jake and Anna and have been married for ten years. We met 13 years ago at the same high school and church and have been together ever since. Anna is a registered nurse by trade but has chosen to be a stay-at-home mom for the time being to take care of the kids. She is naturally a homebody but loves to get together with family and friends. Jake works for the government, which has given our family lots of opportunities to travel and see the country and world. Jake is always going out of his way to help others and loves quality time with the kids. We both love the outdoors, working out, and spending as much time with family as possible. Both of us are very close with our parents and siblings despite wherever our travels take us.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a new four-bedroom home in a neighborhood full of great families. Our backyard has a lot of grass, which gives the kids and dog plenty of room to run around and kick the soccer ball. The reason we chose this community was because it was in the best school district in the city. We have many great walking and running paths, parks, and activities for the family to do. One of our favorite activities is to go to a little creek about 25 minutes away to play in the water and run around! We have a Labrador retriever that we rescued when she was around two and is now nine. She loves to help keep an eye on the kids!
Our Extended Family
Family is by far the most important thing to us as a couple. We are extremely close to both sets of parents and all of our siblings. Both sets of parents have been married more than 30 years, and all are in the midst of retiring, giving them more time to see the grandkids. Anna is the oldest of three, and all her siblings and parents always come to visit. Jake is the youngest of three and is also very close to his parents and siblings. Jake’s siblings all have children and their own families, but all of them still make time to see each other.
It’s rare that a week goes by without talking to both sides of the family. Despite how far away we are from family, both sides have always found a way to see each other. We’ve been very blessed with strong families and look forward to sharing that love!
Our Adoption Story
Adoption was something we’d always felt God had put on our hearts. Anna’s family has many adoptions domestically and internationally, including her brother, who was born in India. Jake’s mom worked for an international adoption agency for many years while Jake was growing up, and he saw the powerful impact adoption can have. We currently have one daughter who is biological and one son who is adopted from South Korea. We believe a loving family is the best gift a child can have. We feel beyond blessed to be considered for this opportunity again.

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
