dear expectant mother

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our family. We know you have a difficult choice and feel very blessed you are considering us to raise your baby. We can provide a very loving home full of laughter and adventure.

It is important to us that our children experience and enjoy all the world has to offer. We travel as a family and have explored the beauty of mountains and relaxing sandy beaches. Staying active is important, so we plan on having activities that include bike rides, walks, and swimming as part of our weekly routine. Lillian also loves to ride her horse Renegade and hopes to share this experience with her new sibling. Carly enjoys getting creative in the kitchen with new recipes and loves having little assistants to help her. Justin enjoys sports and cannot wait to teach them about football, how to play catch, and how to swing a golf club. Family is also a strong part of who we are. We talk to our parents and siblings almost daily and try to spend as much time with them as we can. We enjoy going to events, concerts, to sports games, and on short vacations together.

We believe in open adoptions and the importance of maintaining an open relationship that works for everyone. More people to care about and love the child will help guide them throughout their life. Please know that no matter what you choose, we wish you and your child all the best.

About Us

We originally met in the United States Air Force in 2005. Justin was just coming back from an overseas tour as Carly was preparing to leave for hers. We stayed in touch and eventually started dating. We have been together ever since and were married in 2012. We enjoy going to concerts, hiking, going to baseball games, and attending other social events. One of our great passions is traveling, and we have been truly fortunate to have traveled around the world. Carly has a Master of Science degree and works for several non-profits in the health and wellness industry. Justin has a Master of Arts and owns and operates several businesses in the insurance and financial industry. We love being active, being outdoors, and spending time with our family.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a family-friendly neighborhood with many parks, trails, and bike paths all within walking distance. Our home is a two-story home with four bedrooms. Our favorite place in our home is the large family room because it is set up for family fun! We have an exceptionally large backyard and enjoy playing on the swing set and trampoline with our daughter, Lillian. Zoey is our little teacup Yorkshire terrier. She is a huge part of our family, and we love her so much. Lillian loves taking Zoey for her daily walk and reading her bedtime stories. Zoey loves to play and run around but also enjoys snuggling with us.

Our Extended Family

Since we have a large home, we host most holidays and family birthdays and really enjoy having everyone over for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. Our family loves celebrating Christmas together, and the focus is on all the children in our families to make it as special and unique for each of them as possible. Grandma Jan loves making gifts and each year tailors presents to each grandchild. She is an amazing seamstress and has made costumes, blankets, and outfits.

Some of our close friends are just like our extended family. We are very close to our military family, and although they do not live close by, we make an effort to travel to visit them or host them at our home so our children will be lifelong friends just as we are.

Nearly all our siblings have families of their own, and we attend as many of their school and sporting events as possible. Each summer there are family reunions on each side where all our extended family come together to catch up with one another.

What Led Us To Adoption

We have always wanted a larger family as both of us have multiple siblings. Our family has seen adoption firsthand as two of our brothers were adopted at a young age. One of them has also adopted a son of his own, and it has brought our families a lot of enjoyment throughout the years. Having more children naturally may not happen for us, so we instantly began to focus on adoption. Adopting gives us hope that we can continue to grow our family. We know our loving family and close friends are excited and ready to welcome a new addition with open arms.

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!
