Neal and Brandie
We first met 10 years ago through a mutual friend. We fell in love over many rounds of disc golf and were married three and a half years later at an old Victorian home where we had one of our first dates. We love to travel and explore new places and cultures. We also enjoy local fairs and festivals, amusement parks, and trying new foods. Neal is a satellite technician for one of the leading Internet companies. He is smart and caring, and has a great sense of humor. He is very handy at fixing things and enjoys growing blackberries and grapes in our backyard. Brandie is an administrative assistant for a life insurance company. She is kind and considerate and has an infectious laugh. She loves scary movies and is always up for a good piece of fudge.
Our Home & Pets
Our home was love at first sight and we knew immediately it was perfect for us. We have a four-bedroom house with a great backyard with a swing set. We are directly across from an elementary school, and there is a small park across the street as well. We have several stores, restaurants, and many fun things to do just within a short driving distance of the city. Our neighborhood is very quiet, with that small-town feel. We have two pets, Timber and Ash. Timber is an Aussie Mix that enjoys walks, car rides, and the outdoors. She is very smart, loyal, and loves cheeseburgers! Ash is our sweet and sassy kitty that enjoys a good long nap. Both are spoiled and very loved.
Our Extended Family
We are very blessed to have such great families. Brandie’s mom and dad have been married for 53 years, and she has two older sisters, two nephews, two nieces, and one great-niece. We enjoy getting together at her parents’ house after church every Sunday for dinner and have done this for many years. One of our favorite traditions is eating a country ham breakfast with her parents on Christmas morning.
Neal has one older brother, several cousins he is close to, and two aunts who have been a lot like mothers to him. We get together for holidays and family celebrations several times a year as well. Neal and his brother are currently restoring an old family lake house that has been in the family for over 25 years.
Our families are super excited and eager to welcome a new baby to the family!
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always been passionate about adoption, and after years of failed fertility treatments, we feel adoption is the path meant for us. It has given us hope that we can still complete our family. We are so excited to become parents and can’t wait to share all the love we have. We’ve seen firsthand through a friend all the joy and blessings the adoption of their daughter has brought to their lives. We believe adoption is a beautiful and miraculous thing, and we feel honored to be a part of it.

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!
