dear expectant mother

The decisions you are considering might possibly be some of the hardest you will make in your entire life. We want to commend you for your bravery and thank you for considering an adoption plan for your child. While we cannot relate to the difficult decisions you are making, we can relate to the love you have for your child. We share this love for our own children, and we are very excited to open our hearts and arms to another child.

As parents, we take pride in providing unconditional love while imparting responsibility, respect, and knowledge to our kids. We so love the people they are growing up to be! We love the little things, like sleeping in on Saturdays, taking trips together, and baking cookies, but most of all, we love growing together as a family. We are very much looking forward to sharing this love with another child and cannot wait to share holidays, milestones, and special moments with you and your child. We look forward to meeting you!

About Us

Bryan manages his family’s fuel business. He is also very handy with tools and construction and enjoys watching or playing almost any sport. Ashley works part time as an occupational therapist for children with special needs. She loves a good craft project or tending to the yard and garden. We are both able to make our own schedules, which allows time for getaways, camping trips, and extra family fun. We have an eight-year-old daughter and a four-year-old son. We long for another child to raise in faith and love and to share in this life with our children as siblings. Our family and our hearts have room to grow, and we cannot wait to share our lives with you and your child.

Our Home & Pets

Our daughter loves all things horses and is a wiz at spelling. Our son has a smile and belly laugh that are contagious, and he loves telling funny jokes. Our little family lives in the country with our two guinea pigs and two dogs, Connor and Oakley. Connor is our three-year-old Australian Shepherd who oozes energy. Oakley has been in our family for 12 years and is quite possibly the most laid-back dog of all time. We have a large fenced yard for the kids and the dogs to enjoy chasing each other and getting dirty. We enjoy riding bikes and scooters, swinging on the swing-set, and playing in the sandbox in the backyard. Our family also enjoys swimming on hot summer days and tending to our garden. Our kids love picking fruits and vegetables and taking walks to visit neighbors.

Our Extended Family

Both of our extended families are quite large. We enjoy trips, gatherings, and celebrations. Holidays are always big, fun, and a little loud!

Ashley has one older brother. He and his wife and Ashley’s parents all live nearby, and we see them often. We enjoy getting together for supper at least once a week. Ashley’s family, including many aunts, uncles, and cousins, enjoys camping together at the lake most summer weekends. Holidays, weddings, and birthdays are always celebrated in a big way in Ashley’s family, and we cannot wait to add one more person to celebrate.

Bryan has two younger sisters and one brother. His parents and one sister live nearby, and we get to see them often. Bryan and his dad work together every day in the family business, and Bryan’s mom babysits for us often. His other sister and brother live within driving distance, and we make it a point to see them as often as possible. Bryan’s brother and his wife have three children, one of which was also adopted. Our nieces and nephew are very close in age with our kids, and they are all great friends.

Our Adoption Story

We welcomed our son into our family through adoption, and he has always been a perfect fit. We were blessed to meet with his birth mother before he was born, and we were there to welcome him into the world. Although he had to remain in the hospital for a short time for substance withdrawal, we enjoyed focusing on him and getting to know him in those first few days in the hospital. Several other members of our family have been brought together by adoption, and we truly believe that love is what makes a family. We are very excited to pursue adoption again to grow 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!
