dear expectant mother

“It’s when you are acting selflessly that you are at your bravest”. - Divergent

Although we can’t possibly comprehend the gravity of the decision ahead of you, this may be the bravest and most selfless decision you ever make. It takes a strong individual to consider this process, and we are forever grateful for your strength and consideration of making our dreams of having a family a reality. Together through this adoption journey, we want to build a relationship of mutual trust and respect.

Your child will be surrounded with an abundance of love, not only by us but our entire extended family and friends, and we are eagerly awaiting God’s most precious gift, life. We will provide your child with every opportunity to learn about and understand their family history and to be proud of the multiple cultures and traditions they will be introduced to. We will raise your child to know that your decision, although an extremely difficult one, only came from a place of love.

Throughout this journey, we want to be a pillar of support to you and your family to make this process as comfortable as possible for all of us. We wish nothing but the best for you and your child now and into the future. Thank you for taking the time to read our profile and giving us the opportunity to share parts of us and our lives with you.

About Us

“Do you want to play catch?” he asked. Neither one of us would have guessed that a two-hour game of catch would lead us to the love of our lives, but it did. Our conversation flowed easily and naturally, as though we were old friends catching up on each other’s lives. Brian is your outgoing social butterfly, while Cassie tends to be on the shy side. Cassie enjoys cooking, and Brian is a self-proclaimed grill master! Brian’s management career supports his passion for not sitting behind a desk all day, while Cassie excels in an office environment. Together we play on each other’s strengths and support each other through our weaknesses. We are also known to be quite the creative couple. Brian enjoys woodworking, and Cassie enjoys painting and crafting. We have built a successful small business selling our handmade items online and at local vendor events throughout the year.

Our Home & Pets

We love our colonial-style home with a large fenced yard and a pond frequented by ducks, egrets, and foxes. On weekends, you will find our friends and neighbors at our home fishing, catching tadpoles, or roasting marshmallows in our backyard fire pit. Our hometown has a small-town country vibe with activities such as kayaking, fishing, camping, and hiking yet is near a major city for us to explore museums, music festivals, and cultural events. Our favorite community events include the local farmers markets, summer festivals, and Christmas tree lighting. We currently have five fur babies: three dogs (Charcoal, Flash & Nola) and two cats (Misty & Munchkin).

Our Extended Family

Our differences continue into our extended family. While Cassie grew up in a home with one older brother, Brian is the middle child of five children, with older brothers and a younger brother and sister. Combined, our extended family has grown to include four nieces and five nephews that refer to Brian as the “funcle” (fun uncle). When our schedules allow, we enjoy attending their school plays, band concerts, and sporting events.

One of our favorite annual family activities is our chartered fishing trip on Lake Michigan. This tradition began 20 years ago with Cassie’s father’s passion for fishing. We continue this annual outing in his memory and are now able to share this experience with our niece and nephew; we hope they will continue this tradition in their grandfather’s memory.

Every Memorial Day, we host an annual BBQ. Our backyard is filled with friends and family playing cornhole, catching lightning bugs, and sharing good food and embarrassing childhood stories.

What Led Us To Adoption

After Cassie’s infertility diagnosis and our failed attempts at conceiving via IVF, the decision to take this adoption journey was a natural one for us. For 15 years, Cassie was the director and head coach of a recreational and competitive cheerleading program, which provided us with an amazing opportunity to mentor hundreds of athletes. Many of these athletes looked to one or both of us as secondary parents and, in some instances, first parents. These bonds have continued throughout the years, blessing us with numerous “grandbabies” as well as our amazing godson Nathan. We want nothing more than to provide a safe and caring home for your child. There is no limit to the amount of love we have to give to your child.

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!
