dear expectant mother
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We are so grateful you love your child so much you are considering an adoption plan for him or her. As parents, we have aspirations of growing our family, and we know words cannot express the love between parents and their child.
We look forward to sharing our family traditions with your baby. From large family gatherings to reading books, we will nurture your child with all the love we have. Our son, Harrison, will be an excellent big brother and will undoubtedly love your baby just as much. Harrison loves to play with his cousins, and a younger sibling would give him the opportunity to teach him or her how to blow bubbles, how to push the toy lawn mower, how to sing his favorite songs, how to play during bath time, and so much more!
Our family gatherings remind us all we are so greatly loved, and we are blessed you are considering our family to raise your baby. While we are looking forward to growing our family and sharing our traditions, we are most excited to draw with sidewalk chalk, go for walks at the park, travel to new places and learn about new cultures, grow up with our church family, chase bubbles, and build memories with your child.
We are active members in our community. Brad works as a family physician at a local clinic, and Chris works at a local church as an assistant to the youth pastor. We are both hard workers but always make time for family. We were introduced by a mutual friend at karaoke and discovered we had a lot in common. We adopted our son, Harrison, at birth two years ago, and he has opened our eyes and hearts in ways we could never imagine. We both have strong, loving relationships with our families, and we love to travel. We enjoy being outdoors gardening, camping, taking mini-hikes, observing nature, blowing bubbles, and swinging. We also have a close group of friends, and we like to invite our friends and their children over for dinner and game nights.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a three-bedroom house just minutes away from family. Our out-of-town family visits us often, but we love to travel to visit them too. Located in a small Arkansas town, our house has a fenced-in backyard and is in a quiet neighborhood in an excellent school district. We live just minutes from a state park with walking trails, camping areas, a lake to swim in, and a playground. We have two gentle, playful dogs who adore our son, nieces, and nephews. We look forward to attending local festivals and downtown concerts with our growing family as well as finding the moon each evening, counting the stars, and making sheet forts as a family.
Our Extended Family
Our family is a beautiful blend of Southern charm and Cajun spice! Between the two sides of our family, we have many traditions and celebrations that make our family unique. With our extended families, we alternate our annual family vacations. We gather together with family for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, Thanksgiving dinner, family birthdays, an annual crawfish boil, and other holidays.
Our favorite family traditions are the ones involving large family gatherings. Each year for Thanksgiving, we alternate hosting the family dinner. No matter who’s hosting, we have to set up tables in multiple rooms to accommodate more than 20 family members. After saying the blessing, we briefly share with one another something we are thankful for.
Another exciting tradition involves our annual crawfish boil. We all work together to prepare this delicious meal. Some prepare the crawfish, while others prepare the corn and potatoes for boiling. We all help set up and clean up and just enjoy the company of so many family members. It brings us such joy to see young and old working together and celebrating time spent together.
Our Adoption Story
When we first began discussing our future together, we knew we wanted children. Both of our families are relatively large and very supportive , where everyone is loved and cherished. Two years ago we were blessed by a mother who placed her child for adoption with us. We know that continuing to grow our family through adoption provides us with the hope of reaching our dreams as parents. We have friends who have been blessed by adoption through private adoption, agency adoption, and DHS adoptions, and although our stories are unique, our love for our children is amazing.

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
