dear expectant mother
We are grateful and excited that you have taken the time to get to know us! We know this is a confusing and difficult time for you as you decide what is best for both you and your baby. We hope you feel supported and loved on your journey.
As we imagine ourselves as parents, we see family dinners, holidays, and birthdays. We see first steps, first words, and first days of school. We want to support your baby through all their firsts and prepare them for a bright future. We believe education is important and will do everything we can to help them identify and pursue their passions and gifts. Just as important as education is fun—whether we are making snowmen in the winter, visiting water parks in the summer, or getting lost in corn mazes in the fall! We will cherish every moment. We want to assure you that we will teach, nurture, support, and, most importantly, love your baby with all of our hearts, if you choose us.
It’s difficult to put everything we want to say into a few paragraphs, so please know we welcome the opportunity to answer any questions you may have.
With much love and hope,
Chris & Emily
We met at church through a group of friends. While Emily was the first to see the potential for more, it wasn't until Chris’s family went through a crisis and his first response was to call his friend Emily that she caught Chris’s attention. She was so warm and caring Chris couldn't help but ask her out. We dated, ate a lot of food, fell in love, and got married in 2012. Chris is a lead software engineer for a healthcare company, and Emily is a communications operator. In her free time, Emily loves playing video games, helping out with Sunday school, and being on the worship team. Chris also loves video games and helping out at church but has recently picked up woodworking. From the beginning, we have wanted to start a family. We can’t wait to open the next chapter of our lives through adoption.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a quiet suburban neighborhood. Behind our house is one of the area’s best elementary schools. We have nearly a half acre of property that joins up to a public park with a field for soccer and baseball. We have a four-bedroom, two and a half bath ranch home with a finished basement that is perfect for family activities such as game nights and movie nights. We have three sweet tabby cats. Wall-E is our oldest, he is the most affectionate. Sundae is our little hunter but is as sweet as an ice cream sundae. Gandalf is a playful furball who won’t say no to a treat.
Our Extended Family
We both grew up in smaller families with just one sibling. Emily has one older brother, and Chris has one younger brother. Our extended family can’t wait to have another child join our family. For Chris’s parents, your baby will be their first grandchild. Oh, and we can’t forget Chris’s grandma, who can’t wait for another great-grandchild to spoil.
Between our family and friends, we have a great support system. We get together for all major holidays and sometimes just to enjoy each other’s company. Some of our favorite traditions are pumpkin carving, decorating Christmas cookies, and bonfires. In our extended family, we have several members who have adopted and fostered children. We are within a 40-minute drive from almost all of our extended family.
What Led Us To Adoption
Even before we met, both of us wanted kids. We always pictured our family being created with a combination of adopted and biological children. We tried for several years to get pregnant without any luck. We then found out we had medical difficulties not allowing us to have biological children. We now know the path to growing our family is through the miracle of adoption. We believe that we are blessed to have a loving and stable home and are eager to share the love we have with a chil

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
