dear expectant mother
Dear Special Parent,
We would like to say THANK YOU for being such an amazing and brave person! We understand the decisions you are considering aren’t easy and come with many sorrows and heartaches, but please know we are so grateful for everything you are considering. If you choose us, you would be making our biggest dream come true, and because of that, you will forever hold a very special place in our hearts and in our family!
We can’t imagine all of the emotions you’re feeling right now, but we hope we can help calm some of the fears and uncertainties you may have with a couple promises to you. We promise there will NEVER be a day that goes by that your child won’t feel the unconditional love we have for them. We promise to always be a family who will support their goals and dreams. We promise to let them know how much you loved them and how brave you are for your choice of adoption. We promise to do everything in our power to keep them safe and healthy and also to give them the best possible life.
Thank you again for considering making our family complete! Your precious gift would be the brightest star in our sky! Please know they will have so much love from not only us and our son (who can’t wait to be a big brother, have a best friend, and be a protector) but from our entire family as well. We are beyond excited to have the honor of becoming parents! You would forever and always be our HERO.
Your biggest cheerleaders,
Ashleigh & Craig
We are high school sweethearts and have been blessed to experience this beautiful life we have built together. Craig is a bridge inspector, while Ashleigh works from home in sales. Craig is loyal, hardworking, levelheaded, and funny. Ashleigh is loving, determined, strongwilled, and giving. We enjoy exercising, being outdoors, traveling, all things sports, and a binge-worthy series. We love to be with family and friends. When summertime comes, you can find us at the lake boating or by a pool. Fall is our favorite: football, comfort food, cool weather, and Halloween. Christmas is our favorite! Decorations go up November 1, so it puts us in the Christmas spirit. Our family traditions are what make Christmas so special, and watching the magic of Christmas through the eyes of our children is something we have dreamed of! We can’t wait for our family to be completed, and our son can’t wait to be a big brother!
Our Home & Pets
We are from Kentucky and live in a wonderful neighborhood with the best neighbors. Our home is very special to us; it’s the house Craig grew up in and his parents built. We recently remodeled and got to make it our very own. Our home sits on a couple acres with the best backyard, and it’s quickly becoming our very own park with all the toys any kid needs to have fun. Our neighbors are basically family. It’s like having bonus grandparents on each side. We have the cutest fur babies: Steely and Heinzie (boxers named after our favorite team, the Steelers) and Mr. Mann (pocket beagle). We are proud to live in a Blue Ribbon school district. Having the best education and activities for our children is so important to us.
Our Extended Family
We both come from the best families. Craig is the youngest of two children and has an older brother. He is married and has a teenage daughter. Craig’s mom and dad retired and moved to Florida. Even though they are in Florida, we talk and FaceTime with them all the time, and they don’t miss any events. Having his parents in Florida means when we go to visit Maw Maw and Paw Paw, it’s a fun vacation for us.
Ashleigh is the oldest of two children; she has a younger sister. She is married with two littles. Ashleigh’s whole family loves our child like their own. They make sure he is learning, exploring, growing, and having the best childhood possible. They say it takes a village, and we have the best village! We are super close, and we all live within a few miles of each other; this includes her extended family as well. There is always something going on and memories being made. Family is something we both hold so close to our hearts, and to say we both have the best families is an understatement.
Our Adoption Story
We always knew adoption was something we wanted to do and have talked about it since we were in high school. We believed God would guide us in whatever parenting path was best suited for us. With having endometriosis and just recently a hysterectomy, we knew adoption was the path God had planned for us. This was God’s way of allowing us to have our own family and make our lifelong dreams come true. Our son, Lincoln, was adopted, and every emotion we experienced was worth it when we got to see him for the first time. Putting your hopes and dreams in someone else’s hands is a scary feeling, but getting to be Mommy and Daddy because of someone’s selfless act makes every fear disappear. Love conquers all in the end.

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
