dear expectant mother
We are in awe of your strength, momma! You are a warrior, and what you’re considering doing for your unborn child takes an undefinable amount of courage and love. It is very important to us that our (you + Caycee + Nathan = our) child knows how strong their birthmother is and how grateful they should be for her selfless choice. We know this is a heavy decision, and whether or not you decide to select us as an extension of your family, we want you to know we are so proud of you and your courage.
We have been praying for our future child’s birthmother for years. We pray specifically for her health, happiness, courage, and peace. Our child will know about you and your strength, and the subject of adoption in our house will always be an open dialogue surrounded by gratefulness and love.
We are so grateful for the opportunity to be parents. We have had nearly a decade together, and now we’re ready to wake up at 2 a.m. to rock tiny humans back to sleep, read the same book 800 times in a row, and make all the messes together in the kitchen with little ones! We will forever be grateful to women like you who make these dreams come true. Whatever led your story to this point, we respect your courage and selflessness. We know you will always carry this child in your heart, and we will forever carry you in our hearts too.
We have lived within 15 minutes of each other since we were three years old, but it took a dating website for us to actually meet! Nathan manages a construction company and is hilarious and tenderhearted. Caycee is an interior designer and is patient and sweet. We love spending our time outdoors. Our house is near a river, and we love canoeing and hiking in Tennessee’s parks. We’ve been together almost 10 years, and our relationship is grounded in faith and kindness. We both strive to love each other in the small ways; for example, Caycee writes Nathan a note every night for him to read when he gets in bed, and Nathan makes Caycee her favorite coffee every morning. We are very secure in ourselves and secure in our relationship. Our marriage is fun, and we are truly best friends.
Our neighborhood is in the suburbs of Tennessee with access to a beautiful river and great schools. We are near playgrounds, state parks, the zoo, pumpkin patches, trampoline parks, and a water park. Our parents are close by, and 16 of our 18 nieces and nephews live within an hour of us, so there will never be a shortage of cousins to play with! Our neighborhood is a tight-knit community where the retired folks play guitar on their front porches, and cul-de-sacs are filled with kids riding their scooters. Caycee walks to the river with a group of moms and their kids frequently, and we can’t wait to push our own stroller to the river to skip rocks with our own kids.
Our Extended Family
Nathan, the youngest of nine, has 17 nieces and nephews. Caycee has an older brother and one nephew. Additionally, we have had two different families ask us to be godparents to their children.
Nathan’s family occasionally rents one huge cabin in the mountains, and the kids run around, decorate cookies, and sing Christmas carols together! We enjoy family dinners often at Caycee’s parents’ house, and Caycee’s parents already have a high chair ready to use for our child! We also both grew up with Friday nights being “pizza night”! Caycee’s family spread towels on the floor and ate pizza picnic-style while they played cards. Nathan’s family ate pizza and worked puzzles together. We can’t wait for our kids to look forward to Friday nights like we did growing up.
Caycee’s dad is a woodworker, and he has already made wooden rattles for his new grandchild! Caycee’s mother retired from teaching and started sewing. She is excited to embroider our baby’s name on the handmade Christmas stocking she made for them! Nathan’s dad has made each of his 17 grandchildren their own personalized hot dog sticks to roast marshmallows on around his bonfire. Our children will be surrounded with family, fun, and love.
What Led Us To Adoption
In our first conversation about having children one day, Nathan explained to Caycee that he found out while in the military that he was unable to have biological children. Caycee told Nathan adoption has always been on her heart, so this was a perfect match. So the first conversation we ever had about children centered around adopting, and we’ve never looked back! Nathan’s step-brother is adopted, one of Nathan’s nieces is adopted, and Caycee’s cousin’s two children are both adopted, so adoption is both very normal in our family and near to our hearts.

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
