dear expectant mother
We will never be able to understand this difficult decision, but we want to come alongside you and help provide your child with a great opportunity to be happy and successful. We know this decision takes time, tears, and faith.
Our family is filled with teachers, so there is always an opportunity to learn. We will immerse your child in the world and different cultures through travel and hands-on experiences at places like museums and zoos. We have a lot of energy and are ready to fill our home with happiness and many memories that we will cherish forever. We are lucky to have a variety of sporting events, music, and local events that we love to attend, and we will be raising your child in a church in which we and our families are very involved! We look forward to the holidays and being surrounded with our large families while playing games, cooking family favorites, and having quality time. We also look forward to going to the park with our friends and their children to help your child have many friends.
Thank you for this opportunity. We are grateful and thankful for your decision. You are not only blessing us, but our extended family as well. Your child will know of your love and decision. We will make sure they understand the importance of your decision and the sacrifice you were willing to make for them.
We met at a local church through a single’s ministry three years ago. Emily was a hostess for a game show, and Blake was a contestant. A week later, a mutual friend reached out to both of us about any interest we may have in meeting. We dated, we “clicked,” and currently we have been married for two years. We now have the opportunity to give back to the single’s ministry as assistant small group leaders. Emily is an outgoing girl who works hard and loves to help other people, and Blake is always on the go and enjoys spending time with both his wife and his men’s workout group. Emily is a dedicated third-grade teacher at a small school district, and Blake is currently finishing an accelerated nursing program and works as athletic trainer in his spare time. We love to work out, spend time with friends and family, and serve others through church-based ministries.
Our Home & Pets
Our house is much too large for two adults and our two rescue dogs, Chloe and Clover. While it has been the hub for many get togethers with family and friends, we need a child (or two, or three!) to fill it up. We have two neighborhood parks within walking distance that contain ball fields and playground equipment. Our number one reason for buying this house was that the school district is one of the best in the city for the children we are confident the Lord will bless us with. We are members at a local community center that has a large splash pad and pool as well as great kids programming. We have a very large park (4,000 acres) within ten minutes that is home to buffalo, a large playground, and a large lake.
Our Extended Family
We grew up with similar family dynamics, so it was an easy transition when we got married. Our families live very close to each other, and both sides of our families attend the same church, so we see each other at least weekly.
Some of our favorite traditions include serving the community with our parents. When we disclosed our plans for adoption, both sets of parents were 100% on board with our decision without hesitation. We have a four-year-old nephew who is so excited to meet your baby, and a seven-month-old niece who will surely be your baby's “bestie”! Also, we both have one sibling who is older than us.
What Led Us To Adoption
When we began dating, we discussed our heart’s desire to adopt one day. Emily knew she was called to adopt ever since college, and Blake has many family friends who were adopted. We tried getting pregnant on our own and with the help of a fertility medicine, but after four months on the medicine we decided to re-examine our family-building plan. We had two paths knew we could take, adoption or go to a fertility specialist. We knew without hesitation that the Lord had called us to adopt in order to start our family. We have so much love to give, and we know we can provide for your child financially, emotionally, and spiritually.

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
