dear expectant mother
Thank you for being so brave to make the decision to place your child up for adoption, for choosing life for your child, and for considering us worthy as parents. We cannot imagine the emotions you must be facing and how difficult this process must be for you. We want you to know we pray for you—for your strength, for your health, and that you find peace with your decision.
We want you to know that we are sure of our decision to adopt. We feel fully capable and blessed to bring another child into our home. It is our intent to raise your child in a loving and positive atmosphere full of support and guidance. We look forward to this opportunity to expand our family and are excited at the experiences that we are able to offer another child and the joy your child will bring to our family.
We respect your decision about the level of openness you want to have with your child and want to honor whatever decision is best for you and your child. We truly want to provide your child with the best life we are able to, surrounded by a supportive loving family. We are overjoyed at the idea of another child and truly appreciate you considering us as parents to your precious baby.
We met at a wedding and have been married for 16 years. We have built a strong relationship and truly are best friends who enjoy spending our free time together. We have a wonderful daughter, Katie, who is 5. Heather is a nurse practitioner. She is passionate, energetic, and kind. She enjoys gardening, photography, cooking, and Pinterest projects. Brent is down to earth, funny, and organized. He is currently a student and will graduate with a degree in environmental science. He anticipates working for the DNR. Both of us love to be outside. Brent enjoys fishing, kayaking, and home projects. He’s very handy. We have even managed to stay married through several DIY home projects. Our daily lives are very family oriented. We have family dinners together every night and do activities together like biking, playing games, baking, watching a movie, or just talking.
Our Home & Pets
We recently built our four-bedroom home in Minnesota to be close to Heather’s family. We have a big back yard for Noodle, our petite goldendoodle, to run around. There is a swing set for Katie and usually a lot of neighborhood kids to play with as well. Our community is awesome! We have great schools. Katie actually attended a nature preschool. There are a lot of community events for families to enjoy, such as music or art in the park, the puppet wagon, parks galore, and several zoos close by. Our neighborhood has a bubble car, ice cream truck, and slushy-mobile. Our favorite is the bubble car because the neighborhood kids ride behind it on bikes chasing the bubbles, but who doesn’t love an ice cream treat on a hot day?
Our Extended Family
Brent grew up in North Dakota with his brother and parents. We are all very close and even took his parents to Disney World with us this year! On average, we see them every other month. Holidays are a big family event with cousins, aunts, and uncles, and there is usually a big summer picnic at his parent’s house. Brent grew up camping, and last year was the first year we all went together. We are going again with his family this year.
Heather’s entire family and some extended family live within 20 minutes and are frequently over to BBQ, play games, and hang out. Heather grew up with her parents, brother, and sister. They are all close and get together frequently and talk throughout the week. Heather’s sister is the fun auntie every kid dreams of. Our families have a strong faith and believe every child is a gift that should be cherished. Everyone is really excited for us to add to the family and are supportive and proud of our decision to adopt. We are positive that any child who joins our family will have a wonderful life filled with love, support, and great lifelong memories.
What Led Us To Adoption
We decided on adoption after some infertility issues. Some close friends of ours adopted, and it was a beautiful process to see. It opened our eyes to an alternative pathway to add to our family. We absolutely love being parents and feel we have so much more love to share. The thought of adoption feels like it was always what we were supposed to do. We are really excited to welcome another family member and are grateful at the opportunity to guide another child through life and experience the joy in watching them learn and grow.

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
