dear expectant mother

We feel there aren’t really any words we can use to describe how selfless, amazing, and hard it is to consider allowing another family to raise your child. With that said, we are going to try anyway.

We can’t begin to comprehend or understand the difficulty of this decision, but please know that we are eternally grateful for the gift of a child. Please also know that we will love this baby with everything we are, and we will give this beautiful gift everything that we are able. We will love, teach, raise, and adore this baby with every ounce of our beings. We will raise this baby to know what you gave up for them. We thank you from the very bottom of our hearts for what you have done for us.

About Us

We met on a blind date and were engaged after just six months together; a year later, we were married, and that was six years ago! Lindsay is very outgoing, sensitive, sweet, and a genuinely happy person. She paints, reads, and sews when she is not working part-time at a law office as a paralegal. Carl is a kind, big hearted, bearded teddy bear who works as a maintenance supervisor at a conference center. When he is not working or playing videogames with his wife, he woodworks in the garage. We both dote on our three puppies, take lots of walks, and play board games and video games. We consider ourselves to be a sweet, geeky, fun-loving couple who are best friends.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a single-family ranch-style home, with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a big backyard with a beautiful tree that sprouts purple flowers every spring. Our neighborhood is full of kids, and there is an amazing park with a jungle gym at the end of our street. Our town also feeds into a great school system, which is one of the reasons we moved here five years ago. We currently have three dogs and two cats who are the best pets anyone could have. We have an Australian Cattle Dog named Lava, A Lhasa Apso named Ele. and a tiny Yorkshire Terrier named Button. Our two cats are named Minerva. and Monkey. We are so excited to add a baby to our wonderful family.

Our Extended Family

Lindsay comes from a very large family; she has a sister, two half-brothers, a half-sister, and three step-brothers. Lindsay and her sister Whitney are very close, and they talk every day. We are also very close to Lindsay’s mom and adopted father, who both live in Indiana. We spend every Thanksgiving and Christmas with them. Lindsay’s mom makes a huge Thanksgiving meal to feed Lindsay’s huge family every year. Our Christmas traditions include always opening one present each on Christmas Eve after church, and then we all wake up very early on Christmas to open the rest of our presents. Also, we always watch A Muppet’s Christmas Carol when we decorate our house for Christmas. We try to visit Lindsay’s parents as often as possible when it is not the holiday season.

Carl’s two brothers and his parents live about an hour away. We see them at least once a month and celebrate every holiday with them, even if it isn’t on the actual day.

What Led Us To Adoption

We have been married for almost six years and we have always wanted to have children. Lindsay had back surgery a few months after we married, making it impossible for her to carry a baby. We discussed many different options, and felt adoption was the best fit for us. Lindsay was adopted by her step-father when she was 14 years old; Lindsay’s step-brother is also adopted, and so is her cousin. We have so much love to give, and we can’t wait to be 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!
