dear expectant mother
First and foremost, we are so proud of you. The journey you have started is one that we cannot even begin to imagine. All of the difficult decisions you are currently making for yourself as well as your baby is something to hold your head up high about. It is mothers like you that provide families like ours bundles of joy we otherwise would be missing out on. By being such a selfless individual, you would be giving us such a blessing.
Much like your journey, we too have gone through trials and tribulations to be at this very point at the same time as you. We are all at a place where we are looking to make someone else's life a little bit better. We are confident that together, we can all persevere through this exciting and scary chapter of life together and come out the other side feeling confident and secure that our tough decisions were made out of love and hope. We are forever going to be tied together through this process, if not in person then definitely in spirit. We look forward to including you in your child’s life as you see fit as you will always have a place in our home and hearts.
We met through mutual friends after discovering we had both graduated from the same college. On a whim, Cody asked Shaun on a last-minute date to a Kacey Musgraves concert, and much to his surprise, Shaun quickly agreed to attend without even knowing the artist. Ever since then, we have been inseparable, and Shaun has since become a fan of Kacey (double win for Cody). Shaun audits government compliance specific to Medicare regulations for a health insurance provider, while Cody is a tax accountant for one of the world’s largest accounting firms. When not at work, we enjoy taking our dog on walks around our neighborhood, trying new cuisine around our city, and attending our niece and nephews’ many extracurricular activities. We are both optimistic, outgoing people and very family orientated. We are very excited to begin going down this incredible journey of expanding our own family.
Our Home & Pets
We fell in love with our community before buying a house here. It is a quiet, fairly new neighborhood in the suburbs of the city. We live on a cul-de-sac filled with diverse and welcoming families. There are many kids on our street and in our neighborhood, who are almost always outside playing together. Our home has four bedrooms and 3.5 baths, and we anticipated growing our family to fill the space. Jax, our five-year-old beagle/Jack Russell dog shares our home with us, even if he thinks he owns it! He is a very mellow dog and is always ready for a treat and a nap.
Our Extended Family
Shaun comes from a very tight-knit and loving family. He has two sisters and two cousins with whom we are very close. Shaun’s eldest sister has eight-year-old twins (a boy and a girl), and his other sister has three boys, ages 11, 8, and 2. Shaun’s eldest cousin has three daughters, ages 8, 3, and 1. All of the children have grown up together and are very excited about adding a baby to the bunch! Cody has four brothers who do not have any children, so they are very excited to become first-time uncles.
All of Cody’s family lives out of state, so we spend our holidays with Shaun’s family. Every year, there is a big start-of-the-summer bash for the kids filled with inflatable jumping houses and slides. We also all gather for Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Eve dinners. Even the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus visit each year. (It’s Cody…shhh!)
In addition, Shaun’s mom hosts a family dinner almost every Sunday. She loves to cook for everyone, and it is always great to spend time with everyone on a regular basis.
What Led Us To Adoption
Prior to getting married, one of the conversations we started to have more and more was about adding a child to our family. We are constantly surrounded by children in our everyday lives through our families and even in our neighborhood, and they have brought so much joy and love to our lives. Most of our friends are raising their families around us, and we felt now was our time to embark on this journey and provide the love and stability that we know we can to a child. We are so excited for all of the new experiences, challenges, and happiness a child will bring.

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
