We cannot begin to understand the position you are in, the sacrifices you are considering, and the emotions swirling around inside of you. Getting to this point shows just how much strength you have and how selfless you are. We are so grateful and humbled that you are considering us as adoptive parents for your precious child. It is obvious the lengths you will travel and the love you have for your child.
If you choose us as adoptive parents, we hope to honor your commitment, love, and the decision you have made by giving your child an environment where he or she feels secure, self-confident, and always loved. We look forward to cultivating a strong relationship with you and supporting you through this time.
Should you choose us, we want you to know that your child would be loved by so many more than just us. We have a huge extended family that is eager to welcome, love, and make memories with your child. We both grew up in homes where fierce dedication and unconditional love and support were pillars of our family, and we will be able to provide your child with the same.
From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for reading our story, getting to know us, and most importantly, for loving your baby so much that you are considering adoption. We hope that reading about us paints a picture of our life together. It is a life filled with fun, adventure, encouragement, laughter, unshakeable support, and infinite love.
Charles & Jessi
We matched through an online dating site because of a shared love for a band that hardly anyone else has ever heard of. We both grew up in the same area as we live now, and we have a strong and connected group of friends that we have known since high school. We are lucky to live in an area that always has so much going on. We are very fortunate to have had opportunities to take several trips to Europe together and have a deep appreciation for other cultures. In our free time, you can find us with the dogs at the park, hiking, playing trivia with friends, watching college football, and enjoying local, live music. We love our little family and are thrilled for the opportunity for it to grow.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a condo in the center of a bustling city. Our building is a beautiful, nearly 100-year-old brick building with a spacious courtyard, which many residents enjoy with their children and pets. We live just a few blocks from an enormous urban park with trails, playgrounds, and swimming center.
We have two dogs and two cats. Our dogs, Jenny and Pollie, are sweet and gentle with children. Our cats, Dakota and Hemingway, are incredibly affectionate and can often be found cuddling with us on the couch.
Our Extended Family
We are both very close to our immediate family, especially our siblings. We both come from homes with one other sister or brother. With Jessi’s parents living at the beach, there is never a lack of beach time. Charles’ parents live in a beautiful, quiet cabin on a secluded lake in the mountains of North Carolina. When we visit them, there is always something fun to explore outdoors, like kayaking or hiking. Our parents are so excited for us to begin this journey of adoption.
Our extended family is spread out across the country, with most of Jessi’s family on the East Coast and Charles’ family split between both coasts. This distance has never hindered a close bond with our extended family. In fact, it only gives us many places to travel to for visits!
Charles’ mother’s side of the family has a long-standing tradition of annual family reunions to new and interesting locations. They have seen it all from Alaska to the Grand Canyon, to hiking through the Blue Ridge Mountains and everything in between.
Because Jessi’s side of the family is within a few hours’ drive, we are able to spend nearly every holiday with a large group of grandparents, aunts, uncles, and countless cousins.
What Led Us To Adoption
Adoption has always been a consideration for us. Charles has two adopted cousins and we admire their family’s story. His aunt and uncle have been wonderful role models as adoptive parents. When we decided that we were ready to start growing our family, we soon learned that we were facing challenges with infertility. When presented with the decision to undergo more involved fertility treatments, we realized that this was our opportunity to pursue adoption, just as we had wanted all along.

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
