We hope this letter helps you get to know who we are and who we want to be as parents. We can’t truly understand how you’re feeling, but we look forward, if you choose us, to being able to connect and hear about you and your desires for your child. Thank you in advance for taking the time to consider us as adoptive parents.
We hope to provide a safe, loving home for your child. If you choose us, we hope to raise a kind, independent person. Becoming parents is daunting, and we know we’ll face many challenges. But we can promise that we’ll care for your child in every way: physically, emotionally, and spiritually. We promise to encourage his or her individual interests and love him or her unconditionally.
We understand that this will be a difficult and emotional process. If you choose us, we look forward to learning more about you and your wishes for your child. We want him or her to know that he or she was loved from the beginning, by you and by us.
As a couple, we have spent the last seven years building a life together and supporting each other’s personal goals. Now we want to share our love, our energy, and our home with a child. We discussed starting a family from the time we first began dating and we share the desire to become parents. We met in 2010 at an art workshop and spent our first date skiing across a frozen lake. Since then, we’ve shared one adventure after another. In 2015, we were married in a hot air balloon outside Phoenix, Arizona. In 2017, Bill completed his master’s degree, and we returned home to our friends and family in Alaska. Bill currently works as a senior engineer, and Emily works from her home office as a graphic and web designer. Our flexible schedules will allow us to share time caring for our child while saving for our future.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a three-bedroom, two-bath house in our hometown of Anchorage, Alaska. Our home is on a quiet cul-de-sac near several large parks, trails, Bill’s office, and good schools. We have a fenced yard, a work-in-progress garden, an art studio in our garage. Emily works from her home office in one bedroom, and our other bedroom is ready to become a nursery. Last year we welcomed into our home Ruby, our loving, brown and white one-year-old dog, and Felicia, a sassy two-year-old gray Tabby. Ruby is always ready to play, including with our nieces, and Felicia’s a sweet cat who comes out to say “hi” whenever visitors arrive.
Our Extended Family
Our home is now within an hour’s drive of both of our parents and siblings. Bill is the oldest of four adopted kids, and Emily’s sister and brother-in-law live nearby with their two daughters as well. The whole crew is excited and supportive of us adopting, from grandparents to cousins. Both of our parents moved to Alaska from out of state, but we still make time when we can to visit extended family members in the Lower 48.
Emily’s parents are both hard-working. Her father owns a sod farm that her brother-in-law helps to run. Emily’s mother is a semi-retired nurse who keeps very busy in her free time with gardening and sewing. Emily’s sister is a stay-at-home mom of one toddler and one preschooler. They have another baby on the way.
Bill comes from a nurturing home where his mother worked as a stay-at-home mom while his father taught philosophy at the local university. Bill’s younger brother is currently working as a cook at a national park. The older of his two sisters is studying psychology. His youngest sister is a social worker.
What Led Us To Adoption
Bill was born with a birth defect and is unable to have children naturally. Fortunately, Bill and his siblings were adopted by loving parents, making the decision of adoption his choice for having a family. Emily was aware of Bill’s medical condition from the beginning of their relationship and is also excited about building a family through adoption. We are excited to begin our adoption journey!

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
