dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
We would like to thank you for giving us the opportunity to introduce ourselves to you. Thank you for considering an adoption plan and for considering us.
We have traveled the globe and enjoy experiencing new countries and cultures and want that for our kids as well. All of these trips and time together have helped us grow and build a solid relationship. We feel our greatest responsibility as parents is to ensure our children know the meaning of family and have a great foundation to be successful in life in whatever they desire. We feel this is possible by our open personalities and embracing experiences in everyday life by traveling and experiencing different cultures. We do not believe in pushing children in directions but letting them explore and develop as an individual person.
Bennett is at an awesome age for a sibling and would be an amazing older brother for your child. We always thought we would have our children close together. However, we are sure you realize sometimes life does not go according to plan. Our plan was always to adopt; that is one thing we both agreed on early in our relationship.
We know in our hearts we were meant to be parents. We have plenty of room in our hearts to love another child. All children are gifts, and you would be giving us the greatest gift imaginable by adding to our family.
Mihir is a business owner, and Ashley is a nurse. We met through mutual friends while Ashley was house sitting and Mihir had to drop off some keys. He asked his friend who the blond girl was, and after a double date and some chocolate cake stealing, the rest was history. We are each other’s best friends, and we often act as sounding boards for each other’s problems or after a rough day at work. We enjoy traveling all around the world and search out adventures whenever possible. When we aren't traveling, we enjoy hosting dinner parties for our friends or just hanging out with each other and our one-year-old son watching movies, playing games, and playing on the beach.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a two-story home in South Carolina. Our home has three bedrooms, a playroom, and a large backyard. We live very close to the beach, and our neighborhood has a pool and a large park for kids to take full advantage of. Boating is very popular where we live, and when we aren’t playing around in our backyard with neighborhood children or friends, we are often found exploring nearby islands and beaches for picnics and relaxation.
Our Extended Family
Ashley: I grew up in a small town on the Massachusetts/New York border. My father built our house on a piece of land that felt like my own retreat. While my father is no longer with us, the property remains in the family, and we still visit it on ski trips or holiday trips up north to see family. We have numerous cousins, aunts, and uncles in the New York/ Pennsylvania area and keep in touch as often as possible.
Mihir: I grew up in central New Jersey in a very populated town. I was fortunate to be given every opportunity by my parents. I am an only child, which I hated, and I want to ensure Bennett has siblings to grow old with. My father has seven siblings who all live within a few hours of each other. I grew up surrounded by family and consider my twenty plus cousins my brothers and sisters. While we all live in different parts of the country now, we stay in touch daily with group texts, family trips, and reunions. Most recently one of my favorite cousins relocated to within an hour of us, and we visit them almost weekly and plan many playdates.
What Led Us To Adoption
We discussed adoption before we were even married, which may seem a little odd, but it was important to both of us since both of our mothers were adopted themselves! We very much believe you don’t have to be related by blood to be family and have seen firsthand the positive outcomes adoption can have on both adoptive and birth families. We would love nothing more than to be trusted with the responsibility of giving a child an amazing life.

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
