dear expectant mother
We are humbled by your courage and strength in taking this difficult step for your baby. We can’t imagine what you are going through right now and all the emotions you must be feeling. Please know we support you in whatever decision you make because we know that even considering adoption means you are willing to sacrifice your own wants for the needs of your child.
We have always been excited to become parents, and from day one, we were ready for whatever God sent our way. Christie has always felt led to adoption, but she wasn't sure how or when adoption would become a part of our story. After being married for two years, we started struggling with fertility, and now, after three years, adoption has naturally become a part of our discussions.
We have been truly blessed in so many ways. We are both far from perfect, but if you choose us for your child, we promise to always strive to provide a loving, stable, and safe home full of family and friends who surround your baby with love. Having almost four adopted nieces and nephews of our own, you should know your child will feel welcome and understood by cousins and family. We hope you will find comfort in knowing you have chosen a life where your baby will be the biggest blessing and cherished every day.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about us and for considering us as parents for the little one growing inside of you.
We are Josh and Christie. We met online in December of 2017, got engaged in September of 2018, and married in March of 2019. Josh is a realtor for a big real estate company in our area, and Christie is the worship leader/pianist for our church. Josh is hardworking, driven, funny, and encouraging, and Christie is compassionate, loving, organized, and smart. We own a home in a family-friendly neighborhood with lots of kids. Our neighborhood has several pools, a kids swim team, beautiful bike trails, and a community golf course. During the week, we play on an outdoor sand volleyball team, golf, spend time with our family and friends, play catch with our dog, or just enjoy sitting at home watching a movie. We can’t wait to see what new adventures await us as we grow our little family.
Our Home & Pets
Our home is a beautiful, white two-story walkout that backs up to the neighborhood golf course. We have a big side yard, perfect for playing catch or hunting eggs for Easter. Our neighborhood has three pools, bike and walking paths, and even some small fishing ponds. Our dog, Willow, is a two-year-old chocolate Lab. She is sweet and spoiled. She absolutely loves when the nieces and nephews visit because she enjoys playing with them and giving them sweet kisses! All you have to do is say “car ride,” and she is ready to go! She loves tagging along for family outings.
Our Extended Family
Christie is one of the youngest of nine children. She has five sisters and three older brothers and has fourteen nieces and nephews. Holidays are always fun when you get us all together. Her family loves to play board/card games, have Nerf wars with the kids, and just talk to catch up on life. One particularly special tradition her family has is making homemade noodles for Thanksgiving. This is a tradition her grandma started and we have continued to do every year since. Christie is very close with her family. She knows they are always there for her and just a phone call away.
Josh is the oldest of four kids. He has two sisters and one brother and is very close with them all. They share multiple texts and phone calls a day. We also have a family chat where we send funny jokes and updates on each other’s lives. One of his favorite family traditions is that they always get together and watch the Super Bowl together. We are really close with our families. They aren’t just our family; they are our best friends.
What Led Us To Adoption
We know God has called us to adopt, and we can’t wait to meet the child He has planned for us. We know the incredible gift and sacrifice that comes with someone entrusting their child to our little family. We have seen how absolutely beautiful adoption is firsthand. Christie has three adopted nieces and nephews and one currently in the process of being adopted. When we started having fertility issues, there wasn’t a doubt in our minds that adoption was what God was leading us to. Our niece who was adopted when she was a baby is almost 15 now and has told us how excited she is; she can’t wait to babysit. We are excited to see what the future holds for our little family.

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!
