dear expectant mother

Thank you for taking the time to read about us, to look at our pictures, and to get to know us!

We want you to know that we understand how difficult this time and process must be, choosing the best option for you and your precious little one. We hope that you have had nothing but support and love during this journey. Please know that we have nothing but respect for you and admiration for the strength that you must possess to consider adoption.

If you choose adoption and were to choose us to be the parents to your baby, we want you to know that we are incredibly open to having discussions about whatever adoption plan you would be most comfortable with. Our goal is to support you while also giving your child the best opportunities in life. Your child would always know of the selfless choice you made and how it takes such a strong and caring person to make this difficult yet brave decision.

If you do choose us, we promise to love, cherish, and appreciate your baby in every way. We want your baby to succeed in whatever makes him or her happy. We will be completely supportive in all ways and very open about our journey to becoming the parents of such a blessing.

We wish you peace and comfort, and we look forward to possibly hearing from you and answering any questions you may have for us!

About Us

Ashley is a second grade teacher at the local school that our future children will attend, and Corey is an apprentice lineman. We both feel lucky because we chose these occupations at a young age and are both happily employed. We have known one another our whole lives but did not start dating until after high school. We quickly became best friends and fell in love. Our biggest strength is that we completely and totally support one another—always. We have both done anything needed to make sure the other is happy and successful.

We have so many common interests and hobbies, but we are also different in many ways. With that being said, the differences have helped us both to challenge ourselves, and we have formed a very strong, trusting, and caring relationship. We have built a strong foundation to build our family on.

Our Home & Pets

We own a two-bedroom, two-bathroom home with a garden on two acres of land. We bought it as a fixer-upper and renovated it into a home with the help of our families. We have lived there a little over two years with our cat, Truman. Our home is located 20 minutes or less from all of our parents and the school that our children will attend. We are lucky to be surrounded by Shawnee National Forest and have many parks, trails, lakes, and creeks within a short distance. We enjoy taking advantage of all of this and spend as much time as we can outside. We are excited to enjoy our favorite hobbies, like fishing, kayaking, hiking, and gardening, with our future children.

Our Extended Family

We are extremely lucky to live close to our parents. We spend time with them regularly and are eager for them to meet and build a relationship with their future grandchildren. We get together on holidays and for birthdays, but we also get together often during the warmer months to have cookouts, swim, fish, and spend time together.

We are excited to start traditions of our own with our children, especially on Christmas Eve. We will gift our children new pajamas, bake cookies together, play board games, enjoy hot chocolate, and watch Christmas movies before setting out cookies and milk for Santa and carrots for his reindeer. However, we also have ideas and plans for enjoying other important days too. We are hopeful that as our family learns and grows together, we will be able to make our own traditions that our children can carry on one day.

What Led Us To Adoption

We have always felt a desire to adopt a child or children. We have always dreamed of having a mixture of biological children and adopted children all under the same roof. After we got married, we began trying to conceive. After years of failed attempts, we felt that our calling was to go ahead and begin the adoption process. Every decision and step in this process has been so positive, which solidifies that this is the right path for us. We are excited to grow our family.

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!
