dear expectant mother
We’ve had the privilege and honor to walk alongside a birthmother before. We saw firsthand how difficult this time was for her and acknowledged her bravery in the choice to place her child for adoption. It has been one of the very most important and meaningful experiences we have ever shared with someone.
We want you to know we will honor you along the way. We believe you have every right to choose what is best for you, and we will fully support that until the very end. If you choose us, no matter how you’d like to move forward with the process, we will always tell your child your story and how they got here. It starts with you, and we will honor that. From day one, we have shared with our child stories, photos, and letters from his birthmom. It is such a beautiful part of his own story. We would do this with you too at any level you’re comfortable with.
We would be grateful to walk beside you in any of this, if you choose us. We will also always respect your wishes and boundaries as you navigate this road. None of this is easy, and we very much see and hear you in all of this. Know that whatever decision it is you make, we honor you, we celebrate you and who you are, and we welcome you into our hearts forever.
We love adventure, travel, being together, and discovering new things to do. You’ll find us outdoors as much as possible. We are both outgoing people with positive attitudes and outlooks on life. Molly works with middle and high school kids at a church and is a singer/songwriter. Ashlee owns a franchise restaurant and has been in the business for 19 years. We feel strongly about community, both being a part of it and serving it.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a well-established neighborhood in the heart of the city. We walk to coffee shops, parks, playgrounds, and restaurants daily. Our school district is highly rated, and we live close to many community schools. We have three dogs: Elvis, Dolly, and Fin. They are German shorthair pointers, and they are amazing! Our home is an updated 1950s mid-century modern home with a lot of outdoor space for play and fellowship. We love art and decor and really take pride in our home and making it an extension of who we are.
Our Extended Family
We both have big families. Ashlee has one sister and a brother. Molly has one sister. We both have one nephew and a niece. We grew up with a lot of cousins and family traditions like spending Christmas together and holidays like Independence Day out on the lake. We were both very close to our grandparents, and both of our parents have been married for over 40 years. Family is our main focus and means so much to us.
Our Adoption Story
We adopted our son a year and a half ago, and it was the most beautiful experience. He has been the biggest gift of our life, and we want him to grow up with a sibling. We have an open adoption with his birthmom, and that, too, has been such a gift. We look forward to seeing how this next part of our journey will unfold!

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!
