dear expectant mother
We can’t imagine how difficult considering an adoption plan is for any number of reasons, and we won’t begin to assume what this choice might mean for you. We would be forever grateful to you for the honor of raising your baby. If you choose us as parents for your child, we can assure you he or she will be entering a loving and committed family. We know well that life is unpredictable, but we can promise you this:
We promise to love your baby more than we love ourselves, to give him or her everything he or she will ever need, and to be discerning when providing things your child might want. We promise to be the most considerate and balanced parents, to encourage your child when he or she needs it, to be gentle and sensitive when he or she needs to be comforted and supported, and to do our very best to know the difference. We promise to be honest and transparent, knowing we will not be perfect. We promise to introduce your child to faith and spirituality. We promise to encourage your child to pursue areas of strength as well as weakness so he or she will become a well-rounded person. We promise to teach kindness and compassion, and above all else, we promise to provide a fun and caring environment with dedicated family and friends.
We met in seventh grade when we sat side by side in math class. We never had a relationship until years later, when we reconnected long distance as Troy was opening up his karate school in South Carolina. We lived on opposite sides of the country, but Brittany relocated to join Troy, and we have been together ever since. Brittany is a mental health therapist, and Troy is a member of the Army National Guard and works for a national supply company. The cornerstone of our relationship is sacrifice. Our journey until now has led us down several paths that have made us who we are today as a strong and loving couple wanting very much to start our family. We strike a good balance between our different strengths, and we look forward to utilizing that balance as parents.
Our Home & Pets
Our neighborhood reminds us of what we had growing up. There are children on bikes and the surround-sound of kids’ laughter. Our home has a beautiful outdoor space; we love the patio, fire pit, and vegetable garden. The house is spacious with four bedrooms and two bathrooms. We love how cool it is in the summer and cozy in the winter. There is a local ice cream shop just down the street, and the neighborhood is populated with elderly couples, families, and children of all ages. Within walking distance, there is a large park with soccer and baseball fields, basketball courts, sand volleyball, and a mini climbing park. Our cat brings us much joy with her chatter and loving head bumps.
Our Extended Family
Nearly all of our extended family lives within 30 minutes of our home. We enjoy large family gatherings during the holidays as well as summer swimming and sailing at Brittany’s grandparent’s house on the lake. We are both eager to provide an environment where our children will have access to a variety of activities that neither of us had growing up.
Each of us have had family experiences and gatherings we are eager to share with our child, from hiking and camping to board games, quilting, karate lessons, basketball in the driveway, and barbecues on the back deck.
Our extended families are eagerly waiting for us to become parents, and our children will have cousins and friends waiting to love them just as we are. Our family has been through the heartbreaking losses of our miscarriages with us and is supportive and overjoyed we are now on the path toward adoption.
What Led Us To Adoption
Both of us want to be parents and have children. Even before we attempted to have children naturally, we discussed the possibility of adopting children in addition to having biological children. We have friends who have adopted and friends who are themselves adopted, and we love the idea of growing our family with this process. However, after a series of unexplained miscarriages, we became committed to adopting a baby. We recognize what an inconceivably difficult choice this must be to consider. We are grateful for this opportunity to become parents.

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
