dear expectant mother
Thank you so much for your consideration of us as adoptive parents for your child. We thank God daily for you as you make this decision. We pray that God will bless you through this journey and help you find peace. We know this is not an easy choice, but we hold you in the highest respect for considering an adoption plan for your precious child. We have learned that blood isn’t what makes a family -- it's the love, trust, and support people share.
Our entire immediate and extended family is excitedly waiting to welcome a child. Our son, Will, talks daily about what he will teach his new brother or sister. Anne’s father can’t wait to decorate the house for Halloween and take the baby trick-or-treating. We love celebrating holidays and birthdays with family. Both Anne’s and Arthur’s dads dress up to make the most of any party. We have a great local photographer and we can’t wait for our first family photos. Every fall and winter, we travel up north to go apple picking and play in the snow.
If you choose us, your child will try and experience new things, and we will prepare him or her for college, should he or she choose. We will ensure your child is given every opportunity for success and happiness. Above all, we promise that we will love your child with all our hearts for as long as we are alive.
Anne is a fun-loving, fiercely loyal, and devoted hockey mom. Arthur is a hard-working family man. If he had any spare time, he would play video games. Arthur’s proposal was priceless. He thought Anne had found out he bought the ring. As we were walking out of a store, he told Anne, “Get the keys from my pocket -- my hands are full.” Anne pulled out a ring box, opened it and immediately got annoyed: it was empty. Luckily, a passerby pointed to the ground and said, “I don’t think you want to lose that!” We picked up the ring and left. Five minutes later, he said, “So are you going to answer?” The rest is history! Like any couple, we’ve had rough times but they’ve brought us closer. We are constantly developing newfound love and respect for each other, and we would love to bring a new baby into our family.
Our Home & Pets
We love animals and have welcomed many pets into our home. We have a dog, outdoor cats, a guinea pig, and chickens. If you choose us, your child will gain lots of responsibility learning to care for and love these animals. We live in the kind of neighborhood where you don’t feel like you have to lock your doors (but we still do!). When the bus drops the kids off from school, anyone who can do so comes out to play. Our community used to focus mostly on farming, but it has expanded as the big city closest to us has grown as well. We have access to all the big city perks within about 30 minutes, but we have a small rural community where everybody knows everybody.
Our Extended Family
We are very close to both sets of our parents. In fact, our parents spend time with each other even when we aren’t there. We both grew up with parents who worked, and they have instilled a work ethic in each of us that we plan to pass on to our children. Our families also place a high value on education, and we have both gone to college and pursued advanced degrees.
We enjoy spending time with family and spend every Thanksgiving and Christmas with family. We alternate who travels, but we make a point to always spend these holidays together. We really enjoy spending vacations together at the beach when we can, and of course, we took our son to Disney World, which every child seems to want to do. If you choose us, we can’t wait to see your child join us on our adventures. We traveled to Italy for our honeymoon and as soon as the kids are old enough, we would love to take them on international adventures, too.
What Led Us To Adoption
Anne had complications with the pregnancy and delivery of our son. With medical help we tried to conceive a baby, but it never happened. We always felt adoption was a wonderful way to grow our family since Anne herself was adopted. Her parents waited a very long time before they received that wonderful call. When they arrived to meet the her, the social worker said she would give them some time to decide if this felt right to them. It was love at first sight, there was no hesitation whatsoever in their minds. Anne always knew she was adopted and always felt loved and supported by her whole family. We can't wait to be blessed with a child just like Anne's parents were through the miracle of adoption.

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
