dear expectant mother
Thank you for taking the time to view our profile and consider us as parents for your child. We can only imagine how difficult this decision must be for you, and we hope that you are able to find peace as you choose what is best for you and your child. As parents, we do our best to put our children’s needs ahead of our own, and we have so much respect for those who are able to do that even if the answer involves placing that child for adoption.
Adoption has been so important in our lives as it has allowed us the privilege of raising our oldest daughter. Every day we see her first mother in her face, and we are thankful for the role we have been allowed to play in her life. Our children are the most important people in our lives. We try to keep our lives full of laughter and happiness, while also ensuring access to good education. We teach our children to be caring and considerate of others.
We wish you the best in making this decision and we welcome and look forward to talking with you if you decide that our family would be a good fit for your child.
When we met while working at Target, neither of us realized that we were meant to be. We were just in high school. But somehow, despite going to different colleges and pursuing very different careers, we were able to make it work. We are stronger now than ever. Leah works as a pediatrician. When she’s not at work she enjoys knitting, running, and dancing offbeat with our children. Brandon went to school for elementary education. After working for a couple of years, he decided to take the time to stay home with our children. When he’s not acting as a human jungle gym for two toddlers, he enjoys playing video games. As a couple, we enjoy playing games such as Cribbage and Rummikub. We love music, dancing, and outdoor activities such as hiking, snowboarding, or going to our neighborhood park.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a quiet neighborhood with a park just four doors down. There are a number of young children and families in the neighborhood. We are also on a bike path. We love the fact that the schools here are very diverse. We have four pets - one dog and three cats. Lola, a Lab-mix, is full of energy but loves to be with people. Moana is an eight-month-old Tabby cat who is so patient with the kids and plays well with both the dog and the older cats. Bosley and Oreo are six and ten. They are really comfortable with adults and lovingly try to steer clear of children pulling their ears.
Our Extended Family
Brandon is the second oldest of four kids. He has two sisters and a brother. He and his brother are very close and talk or play video games together at least a few times per week. His mom and step-father live about an hour-and-a-half away and we get together with them a few times per year. Both of his sisters live out of state. His younger sister is a junior in college on a swimming scholarship and his older sister lives in Colorado.
Leah is the middle of three girls. Her parents, sisters, and brothers-in-law live about an hour away. We usually see them at least once per month. She also has a lot of extended family, including grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. We get together with them at least a few times per year. She has two young nieces, and her cousins have many children between the ages of zero and six.
Our families have been very supportive of our adoption journey. One of Leah’s brothers-in-law was also adopted as a child, so he definitely has had an understanding of what it is like to be raised in an adoptive family.
What Led Us To Adoption
We had always planned to adopt. When we faced infertility while trying to have our first child, it just felt natural to move to adoption. We are so grateful to have been able to meet our daughter’s first mother. She is such a beautiful person and we see her smile and beautiful, brown eyes reflected in our daughter’s face every day. We have a semi-open adoption based on her wishes, although we hope that as our daughter gets older we may be able to share a more open contact if both birth parents feel comfortable with it. When we decided that we wanted a third child, there was no question for us that adoption was our first choice for expanding our family.

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
