dear expectant mother
We are so grateful and honored you took the time to read our profile. We know this is a confusing and difficult time for you while you are trying to figure out the best option for you and your precious baby. We hope and pray you feel supported and loved no matter where you are at in your journey. We know this decision is not an easy one and its one made with love and selflessness, so thank you again for considering us and for your courage.
Our home is never short on love and laughter. We get so excited about the thought of watching your child open Christmas presents on Christmas Day, teaching them our families traditions and values, getting them dressed up as their favorite character for Halloween, or taking them on our annual Disney trips and going on all the rides. If you choose us, your baby will know nothing but a loving, caring, safe, and nurturing home and would be the center of our world.
Know that we are praying for you and your precious little baby and also know that we wish you much peace and comfort on your journey.
We originally met while in high school. Flash-forward to 2013 and we reconnected on a dating site; we’ve been happily married going on five years now and have not looked back since. Melissa works from home as a medical coder, while Anthony works close to home as a restaurant manager. Melissa loves baking and hanging out with family and friends, while Anthony enjoys spending time with friends and family too but really enjoys having nights in with just Melissa and our little dog, Jimbo. We also love spending time together doing various activities. We love cooking together, going to hockey games (or any sporting event), walking our dog, seeing the latest movie, or going on fun day trips or our annual vacation trip.
Our Home & Pets
Our home is located in a quiet and nice neighborhood in Arizona. We live in a three-bedroom home with a large grassy backyard for a child to to run around in and play with the dog. We also are right around the corner from a large park that has trails, swings, playgrounds, basketball courts, and big fields to play in. We have a dog named Jimbo, who loves treats, playing with one of his many toys, and going on car rides. He especially loves his cuddles and belly rubs from anyone who will give him one. We are very fortunate to live only five minutes from Anthony’s parents and only 20 minutes from Melissa’s family.
Our Extended Family
Anthony is the oldest of two boys; his brother lives a few hours away, while his parents are just five minutes away from us. Melissa is the youngest of three, with an older brother and sister plus a niece and nephew. Her siblings and parents all live within 20 minutes of us. We both share close relationships with our families and spend a lot of time with them.
We love taking trips to go see Anthony’s brother. Our family also does annual trips to Disney and Universal. Our family loves all the holidays. Melissa especially loves Halloween and coordinating costumes with our dog and then going trick-or-treating with our niece and nephew. Anthony and his whole family love Christmas and all the family traditions, like decorating Christmas cookies a few days before Christmas, having everyone over to Anthony’s parents’ house, and spending time with family and friends. Melissa’s family enjoys opening Christmas stockings on Christmas Eve. We have an elf on the shelf Melissa enjoys moving around and setting up each night for Anthony to wake up and see. She can’t wait to do this with a child.
What Led Us To Adoption
We’ve have always known from the very beginning of our relationship that we wanted a family of our own, and adopting a child has always been on our hearts as something we wanted to do. Adoption is especially close for Melissa as her father and multiple family members were adopted. Melissa suffered a miscarriage and also suffers from PCOS, so having a baby naturally hasn’t happened for us yet. We are beyond excited to be focusing on growing our family 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
