dear expectant mother
We are in awe of you. You are probably at a difficult time in your life and doing your best to make the right decision for both you and your baby. You are so courageous. Thank you for choosing life for your baby and considering adoption. You will make the right decision.
Know that we already love you and your baby. We will tell your child about you and how much you loved them. We, too, would love your child so much! We can imagine how much joy your child would bring to us and our families. We would share our interests with your child—cooking, baking, volunteering, working out—but we would also nurture their unique interests and skills. Your child would also visit India since Bala’s extended family would want to hold them, cook for them, and play with them. Most of all, we would provide a safe, stable, and loving environment for your child to grow and reach their full potential.
We are ready to ensure that your child receives the best education and healthcare possible. Your child would also learn to value diversity in all its forms and to make the world a better place by treating everyone with love, respect, and generosity.
Overall, we are so excited to provide a happy and healthy life for your child. We would be forever indebted to you for this miracle you would give us. Thank you for your time, your consideration, and reading our story!
How does a guy from India meet a girl from the Midwest? In math class of course! Hi, we are Bala and Mollie. We started dating in 2007 when Bala invited Mollie to dinner after class and cooked her a delicious Indian meal. Since then, we have shared more meals together and many adventures! We both graduated: Bala with a doctorate in biomathematics and Mollie with a bachelor’s in mathematics. We married in 2012, visited India in 2014, and bought a house in 2015. Bala teaches at a university nearby, and Mollie works as a data analyst for an insurance company. When we aren’t working, we spend time cooking, taking walks around the neighborhood, and watching comedies together. Bala also likes watching cricket, doing research, and trying workout classes at the Y, while Mollie enjoys volunteering at the food pantry, swimming, and going to church.
Our Home & Pets
Our home is with each other, and right now, that is in a house in a suburb of the Midwest. We have a four-bedroom colonial with a large back yard, close to schools, parks, church, and shopping. Our neighborhood has a great mix of ages: some retirees who have grandkids as frequent visitors, couples with younger children, and couples with teenagers. Everyone is so friendly; neighbors drop off extra produce from their gardens, and Mollie often shares her baked goods with those nearby. We know our child would love the annual summer block party as much as we do—games for the kids and adults, great food, a bonfire at night, and fun just talking with each other.
Our Extended Family
We both love spending time with our families. Mollie’s parents, brother, sister, and brother-in-law live about 25 minutes away, and we see them at least every Sunday when we gather at her parents’ house for dinner. Our baby would be the first grandchild on Mollie’s side, and her family is so excited to welcome a new member. We enjoy hosting the major holidays—Christmas, Easter, New Year’s Eve, Thanksgiving—where we have family and friends over for food and visiting. Mollie’s aunts and uncles in CA and IL often come to visit us, and we travel to see them too.
Even though most of Bala’s immediate family lives in India, his parents came to the U.S. for the first time a couple years ago, stayed with us for five months, and can’t wait to return. We know they would come back to spend time with our child and help teach more Tamil words and Indian cooking to our child (and Mollie!). In the meantime, we FaceTime them weekly and text and share pictures regularly. Bala’s brother and sister are both married, and his brother has a seven-year-old daughter who would be thrilled to have a cousin.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always wanted children because family is such an important part of our lives. We have seen the joy children bring and would love the opportunity to raise a child. Both of our moms and dads have been such great role models for us. After unsuccessfully trying to conceive for over five years, we decided that adoption was the best path for us to having children. We are so excited about becoming parents and teaching our children about life, love, math, cooking, and more.

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
