dear expectant mother
Words cannot begin to express the sincere gratitude we both feel in our hearts for your selfless act as you consider an adoption plan. Just knowing you are reading this letter is a blessing, and we know your love for your baby is what led you on this journey—a journey we are hoping we can take together. You are considering giving us the gift of life—a life we have prayed for and one that you cherish. Being parents to your baby would be the most amazing gift in the world.
We are eager to be parents and want to share so much with our baby, from baking cookies and decorating cakes to learning to walk and talk, exploring the surrounding world and meeting new people, and loving them unconditionally. We want the opportunity to give your baby a stable and successful future, and we believe that will happen through encouragement, unending patience, supporting their dreams, and countless hugs.
Your baby will add so much to our lives: more love, more laughter, new and precious memories, and a reason to see the world in a different light. We cannot wait to share with your baby what a wonderful mom you are and the amazing gift you are giving us. They will be welcomed into such a loving family that cannot wait to meet them and be theirs forever. We are incredibly hopeful, blessed, and excited to welcome a beautiful baby into our lives, hearts, and home.
Anna and Kelby
We are Anna and Kelby (and Biscuit, Bella, and Blueberry!). We met several years ago at a vintage arcade. Once the pandemic hit, we cancelled our big wedding and got married with just our immediate families present and our priest on FaceTime. We knew in our hearts we made the right decision because at the end of the day, all we wanted was to be married to one another. We are best friends and love spending quality time together discovering new restaurants, seeing our families, taking mini vacations, playing with our dogs, and cooking. Anna is a pastry chef and wedding cake designer for a small boutique bakery and loves being creative and out of the box. Kelby is a welder who works for a small business and always has a fun project going! Our workdays are staggered, and we always have four-day weekends with each other.
Our Home & Pets
We recently moved into our house and have loved having room for our dogs to run around and play. There are several schools in our neighborhood we have heard tremendous things about and many playgrounds for children to play at. There are always families walking with their young children, dogs playing and barking, and so many mature trees and beautiful flowers. We live close to a lake, and looking out to see the sailboats and egrets is very calming. Our house has been completely remodeled and has an open floor plan with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Our dogs Biscuit, Bella, and Blueberry love to run around in our big backyard, and seeing all their toys scattered around is definitely cause for laughter!
Our Extended Family
We are so very lucky to have such supportive and loving families. Family time is everything to us, and we value all traditions, time spent together, written letters, family get-togethers, and so much more. As a family, we celebrate birthdays, gather for holidays, have random weeknight dinners, and write letters to one another. We are both from Texas and are very lucky to have both of our families nearby.
Anna is a pastry chef who has a love of all things food and has taught Kelby many family secret recipes. We can’t wait to share those! Anna grew up cooking with her parents, and in her family, food is memories.
Kelby’s family also lives close by, and he has three younger siblings. Our time spent with his family is always filled with laughter, chasing each other around outside, and playing with the dogs. Our favorite times are spent visiting the chicken coop at the grandparents’ house and collecting the eggs. The younger kids love running and chasing each other and are constantly giggling. Our families are our biggest supporters, and there is certainly a whole lot to love.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always held adoption close to our hearts. When we look at families like Kelby’s aunt and uncle, who adopted four siblings at once, we see a family filled with love, happiness, and light. We want these same qualities for our growing family. Adoption is present in every single facet of our families, and we want to be blessed with the opportunity to share our love. Since we began dating, we knew adoption was the right step to grow our family.

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
