dear expectant mother
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us and for considering us to love, protect, and nurture your child. It must be very difficult to try to anticipate your child’s current and future needs before they are even born. We are so thankful for all the time and energy you are spending on reading through all of the profiles to find the right family to raise your child. The mix of emotions you may be experiencing is something we cannot begin to imagine. In our opinion, you are a perfect example of what it means to be selfless and courageous. We hope you feel supported no matter where you are on your journey. We admire you so much for choosing life and considering adoption.
We respect you and whatever level of communication you choose to have with us and your child if you bless us with this gift. We will love your child with all our hearts and souls. We promise to provide your child a safe and happy home full of love and laughter and a life filled with every opportunity possible.
Please know we are praying for you and your sweet baby and that you find peace in whatever decision you make.
Eric works in IT that focuses on clinical cancer trials. Bonnie owns her own company as a mortgage broker. Luckily we both have the advantage that we get to work from home. Our life revolves around our kids and being a family. Our children are involved in several activities, such as football, soccer, gymnastics, and piano. We like to go on hikes in our local state parks and go biking as a family. We truly enjoy just being together; even walking to the mailbox to get the mail seems to be a family event! We love to travel and would love to be able to travel to Europe one day. Most of our vacations or travel are spent hanging out in the sun and sand at the beach or going to amusement parks and cruises. Disney World is our ultimate favorite place! It is truly our home away from home.
Our Home & Pets
We live in the suburbs. We have four fur babies: a pup named Angus and three cats (Tony Stark, Pepper Pots, and Lazy Pants). We have many state parks in our area which gives us many opportunities for outdoor activities. There are many other parks and playgrounds by our home. Our school district is ranked at the top in our area. Bonnie is very involved in the children's school in the PTA, which includes activities like helping to plan events and parties. We live outside a major city and are near two other major cities as well as the beach. There are so many options to participate in many different cultural activities, sporting events, kids’ activities, and volunteer/fundraising events (just to name a few!).
Our Extended Family
We have a very tight extended family. Bonnie has an older brother who is married with two children. We see them frequently, whether at sporting events, weekend excursions, or holidays. Eric also has two siblings. Unfortunately, they both live across the country with their families, and we do not have the opportunity to visit with them as much as we would like to.
We also enjoy spending quality time with both of our parents. They are very involved in our lives and have joined us on several day trips and vacations. They also attend our kids’ extracurricular activities, which makes for a loud cheering section! We spend almost every Sunday with Bonnie’s parents. We go out to breakfast with them and then enjoy a nice family dinner at their house. Both sets of grandparents are very active in our lives, and we are so thankful for that.
We also have several cousins who live in Orlando. We travel there often to visit with them and their families, usually resulting in a Disney theme park visit! We believe building memories is extremely important, and we try to incorporate that into all of our family activities.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always dreamed of having a large family. Luckily we have been blessed with two amazing, outgoing boys, yet there is still something missing. We always thought we would have a third child, but unfortunately life doesn’t always go as you plan. Bonnie was told by her doctor she could no longer have biological children. Giving up on our family dream is not an option for us. We came to a decision to adopt. We have so much love to give to another child and can’t wait for a little one to join in on our family love, fun, and adventures!

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
