dear expectant mother
Thank you for taking the time to read about our family. Your courage and selflessness are amazing gifts that you are giving to your baby. We will provide you with support through this journey and hope to ease the stress as you go through this impactful, emotional time.
We will provide your baby with lots of love, fun, encouragement, stability, and the opportunity to grow into a happy, strong, smart, and healthy individual. We promise to provide opportunities such as travel and excellent education that will give your baby opportunities to experience diversity, learning, and play. Through the strength of our marriage and our family values, we will show unconditional love and affection. Through special bedtime stories with cuddles, playtime with his or her brother, and donating time to our charitable groups, your baby will be nurtured to be able to grow into an independent but generous soul who understands the power of being attentive, using his or her imagination, and providing for others.
We would love to complete our family and are grateful to you for considering us as adoptive parents for your baby.
We met in 1999, married on a beach in 2001, and have been on an exciting journey together ever since. Brooke was drawn to Ken’s sense of humor, kindness, and British accent, and Ken was attracted to Brooke’s wit, generous heart, and feistiness. We have a happy 5-year-old named Beckett, who would love to be a big brother. Ken is an executive director at an accounting firm but also loves to work with his hands and does serious DIY around the home. Brooke is a partner in a consulting firm. She has traveled globally but also loves to be at home contributing as a board member to two charities, taking walks with her family in the awesome Texas weather, and playing games with her two guys.
Our Home & Pets
We live in an urban environment and can walk around the city and experience parks, museums, a zoo, and the diversity of the pocket neighborhoods. We bought a three-story modern townhome loft, and after the birth of our son, and with our desire to expand our family, we decided to renovate. Our home now has a playroom with a game table, toy storage, and music area, and the bedrooms overlook a beautiful tree-lined walking trail that leads to outdoor parks and playgrounds. We love natural light, as do our two Persian cats, Ozzy and Jagger, who love to bird and squirrel watch. Our front cul-de-sac is perfect for bike and scooter riding with the neighborhood kids.
Our Extended Family
Our families are an important part of our lives, and we love to plan multiple visits throughout the year. Brooke’s parents live on the East Coast, and we see them five to six times per year. Although Ken lost both of his parents early in life, we are close to his sister and her family, and we get to visit them in the UK or meet at travel destinations each year. Despite the distance, we have standing FaceTime calls every Sunday with out-of-town family. Brooke’s brother lives the closest, and during visits, we can often be found watching our nieces play soccer for one of the Junior Olympic soccer teams. We also spend a lot of time with Brooke’s best friend of 30+ years, her husband, and their two kids since they live in the same city as us. After living in the same city for over 20 years, we have been lucky to form very close friendships and spend a lot of time with friends and their kids. We love the ocean and traveling to the family beach house three to four times per year.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have friends and colleagues who have adopted amazing children. Recently, two friends adopted a little girl. Seeing our friends’ joy and love for their baby allowed us to see the power of adoption in building a family. Brooke’s boss and his wife also adopted two little boys after several years of infertility, and we witnessed the unconditional love in their family. After the birth of our son, we knew we wanted to continue to grow our family as well. We know the love, fun, and support that can be shared between siblings as we both have siblings. Although fertility treatments did not result in another child for us, we know that adoption is an opportunity to fulfill the dream of expanding our love and 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
