dear expectant mother
Thank you for taking the time getting to know us. Our heart breaks as you have to make the most challenging decision of your life, for you and your baby. We understand that the love you have for your baby will never go away. We will always speak highly of you, because we believe you to be so brave, courageous, and strong. You have the most beautiful heart, to think of your baby over your own feelings. Your selflessness will never go unnoticed. God has put us in each other’s lives for a reason.
We promise you that we will give your baby lots of kisses, rock them to sleep, read tons of books, and push them to be a strong, independent, and kind-hearted person. We will spend our lifetime loving your baby, protecting them, and doing whatever we can to provide a stable and nurturing home. They will always be reminded of your unconditional love for them.
A family is not defined by blood. It is so much more than that, one of life's greatest blessings. It is devotion to one another, a house filled with unconditional love, and people that would do anything to see you smile.
Our fairy tale began ten years ago at Jolene’s birthday party, when a friend introduced us. We’ve now been married for eight wonderful years, building our relationship on trust, respect, and honesty. Bill works as a Deputy State Fire Marshal and is the Chairman of our city’s Public Safety Commission. He has a big heart, and he is hardworking, playful, caring, and loving. Jolene loves working as a Registered Nurse. She is full of compassion and nurture, and she is so attentive to others’ needs. After a long week of working, we love to start our Saturdays with making breakfast together. Our weekends are spent kayaking, boating, camping, hiking, or just hanging out with our friends. Occasionally, we might spontaneously hop in the truck to head up north to look at waterfalls or see the many lighthouses our state has to offer.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a popular suburban town, in a four-bedroom home with a large open floor plan and finished basement, which will be great for a play area. Our neighborhood is warm and welcoming, and the street is filled with families playing and walking their dogs. Our front yard has a huge maple tree that we plan to hang a swing from, and we have a large pond in our backyard, where we can teach your child how to play hockey and ice skate during the winter. We have walking and biking trails just a couple houses away and have parks that are a quick bike ride away, all of which we love to share with Gunner and Lucy, our Boxer rescues.
Our Extended Family
Bill’s parents and sister live in Massachusetts, and his brother is in Indiana. His sister has two sons, and his brother recently married. When Bill was a child, his family would vacation in Cape Cod, and we plan on continuing this tradition. Bill’s parents often travel to Minnesota to visit us, and everyone is super excited that we are adopting.
Jolene’s family is extremely close., and they are over the moon about us expanding our family through adoption. Jolene has two brothers and one sister, and between them we have two nephews and three nieces. Jolene’s dad and mom have both remarried, and their new marriages have lasted over thirty years.
We look forward to the annual family hayride with our aunts, uncles, cousins, and their families. Thanksgiving is celebrated with all of the extended family and with tons of laughter, and Christmas with Jolene’s family is magical. We go to a parade, where people and floats are decorated with lights, and then we view a beautiful Christmas display with a cup of hot cocoa in hand. On Christmas Eve, her family heads to church and listens to Grandma sing and direct the church choir.
What Led Us To Adoption
Early in our relationship, we talked about wanting to adopt. We thought we would adopt one child and have one biological child, and there has never been a conversation that did not involve adoption. We discovered, however, we were unable to conceive, and now we are pouring all of our heart and love into fulfilling our dream to adopt. Without adoption, we would never be able to know what it is like to have our own family. Jolene has two cousins who have participated in adoption, either through being adopted themselves or reaching out to adopt from another family. Adoption is a beautiful way to make families whole and to ensure the best life for a child.

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
