dear expectant mother

We cannot imagine what you are feeling right now. You’re trying to find a family that will accept, cherish, protect, and also love the child you give birth to. We recognize the difficulty of what you are doing, and we want you to know that we respect you more deeply than words can convey.

As for us, our relationship is founded on love, empathy, respect, a great and abiding appreciation of humor, and learning. Our first date was full of laughter and we have always made sure to keep that part of our relationship strong. We have strong and deep connections with friends and family in the area, and many of our close friends are more or less family. Together, we have created a loving household ready to expand with the addition of one more.

We know this process cannot be easy for you, but we want to let you know, as best as we are able, that we are also pouring our life and energy into the adoption process. We are blessed with the ability to provide a loving home and family for your baby, and we take that opportunity extremely seriously. Thank you for considering us.

About Us

Our names are Christine and Nathan. After meeting online and dating for a few years, we got married in 2012. Christine now volunteers at the local library, and Nathan works at a local law firm as an attorney. We have grown deep roots in our community and find it to be a great place to live and work. We both share many interests but also feel comfortable expressing our own individuality. We enjoy traveling, being outdoors, reading, cooking, watching movies, and most of all, experiencing new things, whatever it may be. We also play many board games and love being together with our friends and family.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a two-story house with our wonderful dog, Meaugie. We knew that children were in our future, so when we started searching for a home to buy, we focused on those with room for a growing family. To that end, our house has four bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, and a large, fenced yard. Our neighborhood is a safe and wonderful community that offers great neighbors and a quiet lifestyle, coupled with some of the best schools in the state. We also enjoy city cultural events, attractions, and opportunities and have the luck to be close to many rural attractions, such as apple orchards and, in the fall, pumpkin farms. We look forward to the tradition of taking our child to these kind of places.

Our Extended Family

Christine's parents live close to us, and Nathan's father lives about 30 minutes away. However, we don’t let distance deter us: we always stay in touch, visit, and talk as much as we can with everyone. In addition, Christine's brother lives with his wife and their two daughters on the other end of the country, so whenever we can, we all try to visit them in Florida so we can sneak in visits to Disney as well! Nathan's brother lives with his wife in California with their children. Given the distance, it is difficult to get together, but when possible, we do try!

Nathan’s mother lives a few states away, in North Carolina, and North Carolina holds a special place in our heart. It is where we got engaged and then married, and we love to vacation along the Outer Banks in a quiet, oceanside town that allows us to recharge and relax, and we hope to bring that tradition to our children.

We both also have several extremely close friends who are family in all but name. These strong ties help us when we need it. Suffice it to say, our network is strong and we want our child to benefit from that, too.

What Led Us To Adoption

It was somewhat of a long process to get where we are now. We both knew from the moment we met that we wanted to have children. We truly feel what makes a family is more than just who is born to it, it is about a love that is so broad that it embraces you for who you are. Christine's family has a history of adoption, including her brother's wife, who was adopted as a child and is now the mother to two beautiful daughters, our nieces. Their family is amazing, and after much speculation, we know this is truly the path we want to take.

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!
