dear expectant mother
We can never understand the position you are in right now, but rest assured we are here for you and want to make sure this process is easy and comfortable for you.
We want you to know that by choosing us, your child will be raised in a family-centered environment, with many many cousins to play with and learn mischievous things from. There will be no lack of a mother figure in his or her life, as grandmothers and aunts will be a major part in their life, as they are in ours. Your child will also have several family and friends to confide in when it comes to adoption, as we are close to many adopted families and children.
We do not take this decision lightly, and we are sure you do not either. We want you to feel comfort in knowing your baby has gone to the best home and will always be taken care of. Your options are open for the level of engagement you wish to have with your child, and we will always wish you the best in everything life brings you.
We first met over six years ago, and just last year we were married! Together, we are a family-centered strong couple, focused on our relationships and careers and ready to expand our family. Anthony is an outgoing and dynamic personality who works close to home at his university alma-mater as an administrator. Carl is fun-loving and lives life to the fullest every day; for the past six years, he has been a successful marketing manager for a local credit union. We love to travel to the beach for family vacations, cooking our favorite dishes for friends, volunteering at the elementary school Carl attended, and exploring new restaurants and fun activities in our hometown. We look forward to celebrating many birthdays, holidays, and celebrations with our extended family.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a recently renovated historic craftsman bungalow, located just three blocks from the center of a small southern college town. We moved two years ago, when we accidentally discovered our dream home around the corner from our best friends. We completely renovated the three-bedroom, two-bath house into our home, complete with a fireplace, original wood floors, and a cozy front porch. The blend of historical-meets-modern completely matches our personality. We have a big front yard, encased by the white picket fence, bordered with Anthony’s favorite: large gardens! A historic oak tree completes the backyard, with room for entertaining and a future swing set. Our two dogs, LuLu and Lucy, roam freely inside and out as they choose.
Our Extended Family
We both come from large families, where food brings everyone together to celebrate and create memories. Monthly family gatherings are typical, as we celebrate birthdays, holidays, or just classic Sunday dinners. Family traditions include Easter Saturday barbecues, annual trips to beach, Christmas celebrations, and much more.
Carl has a twin brother and an older brother, both married with children, and Carl’s parents are successful small family business owners in the electrical field. He has 16 aunts and uncles, along with an abundant amount of cousins and their children. Anthony has an older sister and two younger brothers. His youngest brother just graduated college, the other brother is married with a baby, and his sister is also married, with two children. His mother is an educator, and he has 9 aunts and uncles, surrounded by many cousins.
In addition to large immediate families, our close friends are welcome just like relatives. For over ten years, Anthony has had a close friend who joins the family every year for Christmas since the passing of his parents. Other close friends are often attending many family functions, celebrations and life events. These friends are family and all can’t wait to welcome your child with open arms.
What Led Us To Adoption
Having a child has always been our dream. As two fathers, we explored many options of bringing a child into our home, from fostering to surrogacy, yet the adoption of a child seemed the best loving fit for our family. For years, we have been planning for this moment but wanted to wait till our marriage was legal and we could adopt a child together. Knowing many other couples who have adopted, we constantly seek their support and advice as we move forward with our adoption journey. With full support of both of our families, we decided it is now time to move forward to welcome a child to our loving and caring home.

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
