dear expectant mother
We want to start off by saying we can’t imagine how hard this decision is, but thanks to your selfless consideration and bravery, we may have the opportunity to become parents. It is a blessing and an act we take very seriously. We are amazed by your courage and will always have the utmost respect for you. Should you choose us, we promise to raise your baby to know the love you have for them.
If we are blessed to be chosen, we promise to raise your child in a loving home and to be kind, talk things out, and always teach them right from wrong. We will always embrace and educate them on where they come from and make sure they know we are always there to answer any questions they might have. We will strive to make sure they don’t go to bed angry and will always say I love you! While preparing our home, we started thinking about all the things we can't wait to share with them, from our favorite holiday traditions with our families to stories before bed, bathtimes, snuggles, and all the things in between. Their education, personal development, and happiness will be our highest priority. Their life will be filled with many doggie kisses, compassion, encouragement, and love from not only us but our families.
We want you to know we are so grateful you are considering us for this blessing. You could truly be making our dreams come true, and for that, we cannot say thank you enough! We hope and pray you have peace about your decision and know how much this baby will be cared for and loved by us!
With love and gratitude,
Brandon & Shelby
Our story started almost a decade ago. We started dating a couple of years after Shelby graduated from high school; Brandon made the first move and asked her out. We got married in 2018, and every day our love continues to grow. We are a laid-back, fun-loving couple who enjoy spending time with our dogs, laughing with each other, listening to music, and traveling. Shelby has a heart of gold and would do anything for her family. Brandon likes to bring positivity to every situation and live life to the fullest. Brandon is a store manager and is passionate about his work. Shelby is a customer service representative who works remotely and loves the flexibility. What we enjoy the most is going to concerts and Red Wings games. We also love spending time at home together and with our families, whether it’s cooking or having a game night. Fellowship is always comforting. We live our lives to the fullest and love to try new things.
Our Home & Pets
We have a warm and loving home with three bedrooms in Michigan with four spoiled dogs that would absolutely adore adding a baby to their lives. Our oldest dog is Bella. She is nine years old and believes she runs the house. Our second oldest is Jax; he is the sweetest and loves to cuddle. Layla is our third. She loves her dad and loves kids. Opie is our fourth. He is independent and loves to cuddle with his mom. Our favorite thing about our house is our fenced backyard and quiet neighborhood. We live 500 feet from a middle school, and our neighborhood is kid friendly.
Our Extended Family
We both come from loving families that have shaped us into the people we are today. We are very close with our families, and they only live 15 minutes away. Brandon has a very large family; he has four sisters and one brother with a host of cousins, uncles, and aunts. Shelby has three brothers and also has a large family with many cousins. Together we have three nieces and five nephews, and we love spending time with them when we can. We both have a very close relationship with our parents and know we can always count on them when we need them the most.
Our family traditions are based on holidays. We all get together for the holidays and cook dinners, and we love to make Christmas cookies. We want to start a new tradition and take annual family vacations where we create memories we will cherish for the rest of our lives.
What Led Us To Adoption
Adoption is the missing piece to our puzzle. We have always wanted to be parents and spread the love we have for one another through our legacy. In 2015 we were told that due to medical issues, we cannot have biological children. This led us to our decision to adopt. We can’t imagine how hard it is to consider adoption, but we are blessed that we may have this opportunity to become parents like we have always wanted. We are humbled and excited to begin this journey.

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
