dear expectant mother
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We want you to know we understand you are faced with a difficult choice, and we wholeheartedly respect and admire your courageous decision to make an adoption plan. The words “thank you” seem too simple to express our depth of gratitude to you. While we do not know each other yet, we have something in common, which is the desire to give your child the best life possible. Our son is now three years old, and we make every effort to ensure he knows about the amazing, brave, and unselfish choice his birthmother made as a result of her love for him; your child will know the same. While we’re unsure what led you to adoption, we strongly feel you made your decision from a place of love, compassion, understanding, and hope that we are the kind of parents you want your baby to have.
We promise we will be by your child’s side, helping them through their triumphs and challenges, loving them unconditionally. Your child will know about you, your selfless choice, and the events that brought them into our lives. We are forever grateful to you and thank you for considering us as parents for your baby. May you always be aware of the joy you have brought into the world and into our lives.
We have been married for 12 years and met while both in the military. We have since settled down in a great suburban neighborhood in Georgia, where both of us enjoy our jobs in the federal government. Katie was drawn to Brian’s sense of humor and spontaneous need for adventure, while Brian fell in love with Katie’s inner drive and head full of random Jeopardy-worthy facts. When we are not working, we love traveling and exploring new places as well as running, camping, and hiking as a family. Brian also competes in several triathlons each year and spends time gardening. When indoors, we love a good movie, hitting the arcade, or playing card/board games; Katie also enjoys a good book and drawing/coloring as well as cooking.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a great family-friendly neighborhood with swimming pools, a fishing lake, and basketball and tennis courts. Our suburban community has lots of nearby entertainment, restaurants, and recreational parks. It still has a somewhat small-town feel to it, complete with annual festivals and a cute downtown filled with specialty shops and eateries, as well as great schools. Our home is a beautiful two-story house with four bedrooms and three baths, a wide-open first floor, and a large fenced-in backyard with a covered patio and Brian’s organic garden. We have three rescue dogs (Dudley, Beau, and Roxi) who have been a part of our family for years, and we are also active volunteers with a dog rescue in our community.
Our Extended Family
Brian grew up in California with his parents, sister, and cousin; he also has a younger half-sister. Large family reunions are held on both sides of his family every few years, and we always look forward to them. Brian gets his love of the outdoors and adventure from his dad’s side of the family and his love of spicy food and tropical locations from his mom’s.
Katie grew up with three sisters and one brother, who have six children among them. She grew up on a farm in Minnesota and still finds the best views are from the back of a horse. Her parents are retired and live with Katie’s sister and her family, but they remain active and travel the country each year in their RV with their dogs, visiting family and friends.
We love to celebrate, and holidays are a chance to visit with friends and family. While our families are spread out, we love the opportunity to travel; recently we’ve visited Tennessee, our timeshare in Orlando, Puerto Rico, and Quebec, and we also took a cruise. We always appreciate a different view, but at the end of the day, nothing beats home!
Our Adoption Story
In 2016 we were contacted by a birthmother wanting to connect. Over the next few months, we talked a lot and met with her in person. In 2017 she had a beautiful son who is now the highlight of every day for us. We maintain contact with Maddox’s birthmother through pictures and conversation. Both of us have a family history of difficult births, which led us to adoption. We truly feel having another child to shower with love and find joy in every day will complete 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
