It is difficult to know how to start a letter to someone we have never met but already have so much love for. The entire adoption process is one of mixed feelings and emotions. What we are looking forward to as one of the happiest days of our lives, will most likely be one of the hardest days of yours. Our hearts break for you as you take on the task of making life-changing decisions for both you and your child. We are praying that you will feel supported and loved while making these courageous decisions.
We understand that your decision to share your child with someone else is monumental and the most unselfish act a mother can do. Thank you for trusting us to love, cherish, mold, and raise this baby. Adoption is one of the most beautiful acts of love and we are honored that we get to walk through this journey together. We are hopeful that as the years go by you will always be a part of your child’s life and that they will always know where they came from and how much they were and are loved.
We met on a blind date almost 11 years ago and have three children (obviously the blind date went well!). Casey’s work schedule enables him to be home early every afternoon to enjoy time with the family. Dawn teaches piano lessons in our home and swimming lessons to our kids and neighborhood kids during the summer. We are very involved in our church where Dawn plays piano and Casey teaches his kids’ Sunday School class. Casey loves working out and is a personal trainer. We both enjoy triathlons, sports events and all outdoor activities as a family.
Our Home & Pets
We have lived in our home since 2015. It’s located on a quiet street with lots of other young families and a park and school right up the road. It is a three bedroom home with two bathrooms, a den, and a sun room. We have a very large backyard with many fun toys for the children to enjoy, a fire pit which is great for s’mores, and a play house. We have our own garden boxes and raspberry bushes (homemade raspberry jam…yum!) to enjoy during the summer and fall months.
Our Extended Family
Casey is the middle child of three. His parents are still living in the area and are very active in their grandchildren’s lives. Dawn has 14 siblings, one being a twin sister and 12 were adopted. Her parents also live nearby and attend all the grandchildren’s activities. We live less than a mile from Dawn’s twin sister and our four cousins and we love being in such close community with our family. Our extended family loves annual vacations together such as Disneyland, Disneyworld, ski vacations, cousins camp and holiday gatherings.
What Led Us To Adoption
We are surrounded by those who have been blessed by adoption. Dawn’s family is composed of 12 interracially adopted siblings and her twin sister has also adopted two sons. Seeing the amazing blessing adoption has been to those around us, has given us the hope to grow our family through adoption since the day we were first married. Our extended family is extremely supportive and involved in our lives and we know that our next child will be loved by everyone. Adoption has never been a question of “if” but “when” for both of us.

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
