dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for learning more about us. Even though we have not met you yet, we already know that you are a brave and selfless person for considering this option for your child. We can only imagine the emotions you are feeling during this process, and we want you to know that we admire you.
We can offer your child a loving and stable home where he or she will be encouraged to learn, play, create, imagine, and wonder. We will expose your child to books, music, art, nature, and animals. There will be nightly bedtime stories, trips to the zoo, fort building in the living room, drawing lessons, playground adventures, silly holiday traditions, and scavenger hunts. We know parenthood will not always be easy. We are fully committed and ready to be parents.
Not only will your child receive love from us, but he or she will have amazing aunts and uncle, very excited grandparents and a group of fun friends who will enrich his or her life to the fullest.
As you make this decision, know that we are here for you. We will be forever grateful to you, and we will honor you in conveying your child’s adoption story in a positive light. Thank you for considering us for the opportunity to create a family.

At Brittney’s 21st birthday party, a mutual friend brought Jon over to meet her. He danced to James Brown to impress her, and Brittney serenaded him with her favorite Billie Holiday tune. From that night on, we knew we were a perfect match. We have been married and growing our friendship for sixteen years, sharing many of the same interests, such as art, literature, music, and gardening. Jon creates exhibit components for children at a nature museum, and Brittney teaches English at a community college. Jon frequently shows paintings and drawings in galleries, and Brittney recently had a collection of poetry accepted for publication. On the weekends, when we are not out with our family and friends, we enjoy spending time with our three cats and family of wild deer, cooking dinner together, laughing at a movie or TV show, curling up with a good book, or doing house projects.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a unique, geodesic dome house. It has triangle skylights that show the trees, clouds, and stars above and a sunroom that functions as a mini greenhouse for plants and is a great napping spot for our indoor cat, Sweetie Legs. Even though we live in the city, our neighborhood is quiet and family friendly. Our house is walking distance to a lake with several parks nearby. It is set back from the street with a long driveway surrounded by three-quarters of an acre of trees, a flower garden, our two outdoor cats (LMNOP and Olive Primrose), and a variety of wildlife, from deer, rabbits, hummingbirds, and owls to turtles and lizards. We think a child would love growing up in our home being surrounded by nature, artwork, books, and animals.
Our Extended Family
Jon’s dad is a retired elementary school principal, and he can’t go anywhere in his hometown without an old student wanting to come up and give him a hug. His mom is a retired reading teacher who would gladly give the shirt off her back to anyone in need. Jon grew up with sisters making funny family videos and speaking in made up languages. His dad coached his sports teams, and his mom taught him how to cook.
Brittney grew up the youngest of four brothers and one sister. She spent her childhood playing schoolteacher and librarian, making her siblings take tests and charging late fines for overdue books. Brittney and her mother were the best of friends, and her father was a strong provider for their family. Her parents always encouraged her and her siblings to be free thinkers and explore their talents and interests.
Jon’s parents live a few hours away, and they are overjoyed to be first-time grandparents. Brittney’s parents are deceased, but she knows they would have been thrilled to have another grandchild. Holidays and birthdays with family are always full of delicious food, games, and laughs. Jon’s family has a long tradition of Thanksgiving themed costumes while Brittney’s family has Easter potato sack races.
What Led Us To Adoption
We are incredibly excited about the opportunity to adopt. Though we are unable to have biological children, we both share a deep desire to love and nurture a child. When exploring all of our options for starting a family, the adoption process was the only one that just felt right. We have both been blessed to have caring parents, close siblings, and inspiring teachers in our lives, and we feel called to share that love, knowledge, and wisdom. We have a beautiful home, a secure marriage, strong faith, and stable careers, but the one thing missing from our lives is a sense of family. If you choose us, we promise we will work with you to create an adoption plan that works best for you and your child, we will love your child unconditionally, treat your child with respect, and understand that it is our responsibility to patiently teach and model behavior that allows him or her to thrive and be a good person.

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
