dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
Wow! What a tough letter to write to express how important you already are to us. We thank God you are considering an adoption plan and hopefully our family to be involved in your child’s life. Although we don’t pretend to know what you are going through right now, let us assure you from the bottom of our hearts that your child will experience unconditional love if you choose us. This love is not just coming from us; an extended family is ready to adore your child. You are an angel, and we hope you will help us realize our dreams of having a second child.
Please know your child will grow up knowing you are selfless, brave, and loving. How could you be anything else? Your child will know you and your love. We welcome your involvement in our family and with your baby to whatever degree is comfortable.
We imagine this must be a time of a lot of questions, so please reach out to us! We would love to speak with you.
Katie and Chuck
We met during our third year of college when we lived in suites across the hall from each other. Chuck was persistent, and the rest is history. We have been together for 12 years and married for the last seven! After graduation, Chuck came to Kansas while Katie was in medical school at KU. Now we are happily settled in a cute town in New England. Katie works as a physician, and Chuck is a public school principal. Chuck is patient and kind and is always ready to give Katie a massage or cook dinner. Katie likes to bring the fun, whether it’s living room dance parties or camping trips in our backyard. Our major priorities are family and education. Katie’s parents live in town, and Chuck’s parents are two hours away. We already have college savings accounts for our son and our dreamed-of second child!
Our Home & Pets
We live in an adorable town in New England. We explore state parks all day and then go out to a fantastic restaurant. We are always with our neighbors so the kids can play together. We live in a traditional two-story house with a fantastic fenced-in backyard. We have the sweetest rescue dog who loves to play fetch there. We have a screened-in porch where we eat dinner almost every summer night. The grandparents both have a pool, and we love a pool-side afternoon! Fall is a special season in New England, full of scarecrow stuffing, pumpkin picking, and gorgeous leaves. Winters are full of cozy days by the fire and skating at our town rink, and each spring the flowers bloom again!
Our Extended Family
We are so lucky to be near our extended families. They are eagerly waiting to meet and love your baby if you choose us. Our passion for education came from our parents: Chuck’s dad is a doctor, and his mom has a master’s in finance. Katie’s dad is also a doctor, and her mom has a Ph.D. in economics.
We have tons of traditions, both big and small. Each winter, our family goes to Disney World. Each spring, we go to Chuck’s parents’ beach house in Panama. It's amazing; you can see wild monkeys, sloths, and red frogs. Chuck’s parents always host Thanksgiving, and a wild, loving crew of 25+ family members come together for the meal. Our family is typically in charge of pie and appetizers. We spend Christmas with Katie’s parents. Every year her mom makes the same 10 cookies she has since Katie was born. We open presents in the morning along with having a fantastic breakfast and watching It’s a Wonderful Life and Christmas Vacation every year. Each summer, we spend time north of Boston to sail on Katie’s uncle’s boat. He calls our son his fellow “pirate captain” and lets him steer out of the harbor.
What Led Us To Adoption
Adoption is such a special way to complete a family, and there are many adopted children in our extended family. Chuck’s uncle is adopted as well as three of Katie’s cousins. Fertility has never been easy for us, and we conceived our nearly four-year-old son with fertility aids. However, we also had two miscarriages with IVF. The biggest sign adoption is right for us is the joy our best friends have experienced after adopting a beautiful baby girl last summer, who is now their whole world! We know we have so much more love to give and are thankful you are considering us as adoptive parents.

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
