dear expectant mother
Thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your baby. We acknowledge the difficult choice you are making and want to assure you that we are grateful for your decision. We would love to get to know you and share our own stories, if you would like.
We can promise you your child would have a life full of love and total acceptance. We know in our hearts that blood does not define our family. Sidney is not biologically related to our daughter, but her love for her is endless. Your child would feel the same love and pride. Your child would have two mothers who would work to provide every opportunity for success and happiness to them and ensure they were aware of the sacrifice and love you have for them as well. Your child would have grandparents to teach them how to fish and aunts and uncles to show them how to succeed at every card game. They have already embraced and loved our daughter with no boundaries, regardless of her genetics.
Thank you for considering us as parents to your baby. We know we can provide your child with opportunities to become the best version of themselves, surrounded by unconditional love and support. We sincerely hope the best for you and your child.
Sidney is from Iowa, and Becca is from West Virginia. These states are 700 miles apart, but we were lucky enough to meet online while Sidney was working in Ohio. We dated long distance for over a year before we lived together. We then got married in 2016 and had our daughter, Waverly, in 2018. We moved to Iowa after Becca graduated residency to be closer to Sidney’s side of the family. Becca is a practicing pediatrician, and Sidney stays home with our daughter. Becca’s job can be challenging at times, but Sidney helps her maintain a healthy balance by making her laugh constantly when she is home. We enjoy traveling in our motorhome and exploring new cities and sights as a family. When we are home, we like to go to the farmers’ market, work on home improvement projects, and play outside as much as possible.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a four-bedroom ranch-style home that sits on a corner lot in a well-established, family-friendly neighborhood. There is a citywide bike path directly behind our home that leads to many different parks and playgrounds. Sidney and our daughter go for walks on the path almost daily and are looking forward to sharing this with your child. We have a large, fenced-in back yard with two raised garden beds. Our daughter helped us plant and pick vegetables this year, and we can’t wait to add another gardener! We have two dogs. Quinn is a chocolate lab, and Kai is a miniature American Eskimo. We also have a cat named Marley whom Becca rescued during medical school.
Our Extended Family
Sidney is very close to her family. She has a brother, who has two children, and a sister, who is her best friend. Sidney grew up camping every summer with her family, and they continue this tradition with multiple camping and fishing trips each summer. Her 95-year-old great-grandma catches the biggest fish each year! We are excited to continue this tradition with our daughter and hopefully your child as well.
Becca’s parents live in the mountains of West Virginia, and her sister and brother-in-law live near the beach in Florida, which make for great vacation destinations! They come to Iowa to visit several times a year.
Becca has a very close-knit group of friends that she met in medical school, and they welcomed Sidney with open arms once we started dating. We see them several times a year, including an annual trip we take with our families. We call this our “framily” vacation because we are friends who are as close as family.
What Led Us To Adoption
We had plans to adopt a child after we both had an opportunity to carry. Becca gave birth to our daughter; however, Sidney faced infertility issues while trying for a second. We felt that adoption was the right path for us because we know that blood relation does not define our family. We have both had experiences with adoption but in very different ways. Sidney’s cousin whom she grew up with was adopted, and as a pediatrician, Becca works with both birth mothers and adoptive parents regularly as she provides care to newborns. We are thankful for the opportunity to adopt, and we know your child would complete our growing 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!Return to Waiting Families
