Dear Birthmom

Thank you for taking the time to read our letter. This must be a very trying and difficult time. We believe if all parents were as concerned about children as you the world would be a much easier place to grow up in. Even considering adoption takes an enormous amount of courage and selflessness.

Personally, we have thought, planned, imagined and looked forward to inviting another child to join our family for years. Honestly, at first we were unsure of how open adoptions worked, but the more we learned about the process, the more we became convinced it was the best fit for our family. Getting to know our son’s birth mom showed the love, compassion and dedication that led to her decision.

So, what would life be like for your child? First and foremost, they will grow up knowing their birth mom loves them and always wants the best for them. They will grow up hearing and speaking several languages, eating home cooked Asian, Mexican and Soul food, learn how to roller skate with Lois and snow ski with Benjamin. They’ll get a lot of experience traveling to visit friends and family across America and throughout the world. They will join a family that values education and considers it an important part of everyday life.

It’s a priority to help our children become successful students as well as compassionate, ethical and responsible people who form strong social relationships with others. We recognize how important it is to make the right decision in finding a home for your baby. Benjamin and I truly admire the dedication you have toward your child’s best interests. We are grateful you have considered our family as a possible home.

About Us

We met on July 4th in Yuma Arizona. Benjamin, a fighter pilot, was stationed there with the Marine Corps. Lois was working as a Dental Assistant – and it was love at first sight. After many deployments, Benjamin’s contract was complete, and he began medical school. He just recently graduated and is now an ER doctor.

We tend to focus on understanding where the other person is coming from. We always maintain a genuine interest in the health of our relationship and try to build upon our life experiences. I don’t think we would change anything about each other. We really don’t argue. We have what might be described as a serious committed relationship, so we tend to focus on things that support each other and thus the relationship.

No matter where we are living we enjoy traveling and exploring. We like going for walks and spending time in the park. We like spending time with our extended families and friends laughing, joking and also sharing life’s ups and downs basically developing relationships. In general we enjoy doing things together.

Our Home & Pets

Our home is close to the center of town in a neighborhood surrounded by sidewalks and bike paths. We can walk to the market, or restaurants. In the summer, we ride our bikes around one of the nearby parks. The neighbors are very diverse with families, little kids, young couple and retired folks. There are a variety of churches within walking distance. Most of the homes have front porches or stoops - going for a walk tends to include lots of chatting along the way. Our home is an original farmhouse, its two stories tall and full of original charm. Luckily, it has been renovated and well kept over the years. Our backyard is just big enough for a family soccer game with our five-year-old son.

Our Extended Family

Lois grew up in with six brothers and sisters. Benjamin has two brothers. Both families are composed of a wide variety of relationships, so open adoption fits right in. Lois has two adult children from a previous marriage; both are independent and live in different states but visit frequently. We generally spend Christmas with Benjamin’s family and Thanksgiving with Lois’s family. Gatherings are always lots of fun with plenty of cousins for our five year old to play with (together there are 19 nieces and nephews). So, right from the start, your child will inherit two brothers, a sister and more than twenty cousins to play with, ten aunts and uncles to love them and two sets of grandparents who can’t wait to spoil them. Everyone is very excited to welcome another member to the family.

Our Adoption Story

Five years ago, we got a call from our social worker that a birthmom would like to talk with us. We were so excited but a little nervous too. At the time our son was 5 weeks old, living with an interim family, while his birthmother figured out an adoption plan. She just wanted to meet us, and had not chosen us yet. Our meeting was positive, lots of hugs, a few tears and we just clicked. We made each other smile during a very emotional time for both of us. We loved her; she was very warm and open. She expressed to us that she has a 3-year-old daughter, and that adoption would allow both of her children to get the attention they need and deserve. We appreciated the chance to connect with her, get to know her and realize how much we had in common. After the meeting we got on a train to return home, when we received another call from our social worker. She had made her decision, and wanted us to love and raise her son. You can imagine the emotional train ride home. Our prayers were answered. We maintain contact with his birthmom, frequently sending pictures and emails. Our son brings us such joy and happiness, we would love to grow our family through the miracle of adoption again.

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!
