Dear Birthmom

Thank you for considering us to become proud and loving parents of your baby. Your selflessness and courage in considering an adoption plan are truly humbling. We both understand that this is a life-changing decision for you. We hope you know that you will be changing our lives forever, too, if you choose us. You would be giving us something we have always wanted but cannot give ourselves: a child to love completely and unconditionally.

A family is defined not only by this love but also by the support each member has for one another. We cannot wait to show your child what this looks like. We are open to whatever kind of relationship you desire to have with us. We would like your child to know who his or her birth family is and that he or she has an abundance of people in this world who love and care for him or her. We want your child to know his or her story, where he or she came from, and most importantly, about you and how strong and courageous you are.

Having a child will add so much more to our lives - love, laughter, and a lifetime of memories. We know life offers a person many paths, some that are often unexpected. However, you can rest easy with the knowledge that your baby will be raised by a family that offers encouragement and limitless love. We hope that our paths meet and allow us to be a part of something beautiful and special.

About Us

We are Brandon and Kayla! We met at a local restaurant and have been together ever since. Kayla is kind, outgoing, and generous. She has a warm, inviting personality along with a tremendous sense of humor. Brandon is a hardworking, confident individual who loves both music and sports. We were married in August of 2012. Kayla is a personal banker and Brandon is a high school music teacher. We have lived and worked in the community where we met for eight years. Some of our favorite traditions include family holidays, spontaneous get-togethers, weekend getaways, and making our annual trip to St. Louis so that we can watch our favorite team: the St. Louis Cardinals! We are both family-oriented and we are incredibly excited for the joyful prospect of watching our family grow.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a very peaceful rural community where it is common to hear the sound of children playing safely outside at the nearby playground. The education system within the community is very strong, and is recognized nationally for the overall student achievement in academics and sports. We live in a three-bedroom bi-level home with a two-car garage and a large fenced-in backyard that our six-year-old Boxer, Cooper, adores. Cooper is a ball of energy and his favorite activities are to play with his ball, fetch his frisbee, and chase squirrels. When the weather is nice, the three of us love attending community events such as parades, picnics, and the county fair.

Our Extended Family

Kayla’s parents still live in her childhood home. Her sister lives in Illinois and her brother lives in Tennessee. We see her parents at least once a week and her brother and sister as much as possible. Brandon’s parents also still live in the town he grew up in, which is only a couple hours away. His brother lives in Missouri. We don’t see them as often, but we do talk with them daily and visit once a month.

We look forward to having our parents becoming grandparents and our siblings becoming aunts and uncles. The overwhelming emotions we’ll both feel as we watch him or her play on the swingset with “MeMe” and “PaPa” will be indescribable.

It should be noted that our extended family includes the very down-to-earth friends we’ve made in the community. They have been extremely supportive of us on our journey and they cannot wait for their children to have a new friend to accompany them to the park, the zoo, and other fun places.

What Led Us To Adoption

Our journey to start a family began five years ago, but we soon found that we were struggling with unexplained infertility. After four years of waiting and hoping, we found out we were pregnant only to suffer the disappointment and sadness of miscarriage shortly after. Following a few months of mourning, we decided to start fertility treatments again while also exploring the possibility of adoption. After more failed treatments, we realized that God was revealing His plan for us. We were destined to adopt. We believe adoption is the answer to our prayers and we cannot wait to share our unconditional love.

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!
