dear expectant mother
Thank you for considering adoption and for taking the time to get to know us. We know this is a difficult decision for you, and we know you must have a flurry of emotions right now. But please know what an honor and responsibility it would be, if you were to choose us, to have the opportunity to raise your baby in a loving, fun, and stable home.
We are ready to share our lives with a little one and, if you select us, you can rest assured that we will encourage your child to achieve greatness in life in whatever path they choose. Families are created by those you choose to surround yourself with. Your baby will receive unconditional love from grandparents, family, and friends, all of whom are ambitious, hardworking, and fun-loving people ready to make your baby the center of our world. And of course, there will be the love of some furry friends along the way!
Adoption was always in our plans, but after finding out a few years ago that we cannot safely be pregnant, adoption is now our only way to have a family. This can’t be an easy decision for you and we do not take on this responsibility lightly. But we will support you in whatever decision you make. Please know that, if you choose us, your baby’s happiness will be our sole focus for the rest of our lives.
We are an energetic, super fun, and hard-working couple who loves to spend time with family and friends when we’re not watching sports, traveling, or hiking. Courtney is a real life Rocket Scientist and a giant nerd who works in missile defense. She loves to walk her dog Zoe and bake. Kurtis is hilarious and uses that humor and love of history to connect with his eighth-grade students. He is a teacher at one of the at-risk middle schools in the area. He is extremely caring and does everything he can to help his students both in and out of the classroom. He also used to work in college sports, which is where he met Courtney. After becoming fast friends and dating for six months, Kurtis proposed! We have been inseparable for the last 12 years!
Our Home & Pets
If you choose us as adoptive parents, your baby will have a wonderful place to grow and thrive. Our home is brand new on a corner lot. It has a huge backyard, three big bedrooms, and it is in the top school district in the area. The neighborhood is small and filled with young kids who play together outside all the time. We have a very cute, very spoiled dog named Zoe who loves to cuddle and play with our nine-year-old cat, Rupert. Our city is quaint, with access to amazing adventures, such as water sports, museums, and hiking trails. It has lots of parades and fairs, and we’re within driving distance to Space Camp!
Our Extended Family
Kurtis has a big family with three sets of aunts and uncles, ten cousins, one brother, and one sister. They all live on the West Coast, so we don’t see them often. But we talk on the phone a lot.
Courtney’s brother is married and has two beautiful little girls (ages five and one) who also live on the West Coast. We FaceTime weekly. Courtney’s parents recently retired and live five minutes from us. They’re excited to have a grandchild nearby to spoil! We see her parents all the time, and we are constantly having dinner and going places together.
We have a very tight-knit group of friends in town that we consider extended family. Our friends all have kids and we love them as our own since we’ve known them from birth. We recently started a new tradition with our friends and Courtney’s parents: all fourteen of us get together for Christmas Eve Dinner at a local steakhouse and reminisce about things that have happened over the year. We end dinner in time for the kids to get to bed before Santa comes. Weekends in the summer tend to be reserved for pool parties, BBQs, and hikes in the mountains with the dogs.
What Led Us To Adoption
We both knew early in our marriage that adoption would be part of our lives. Kurtis has six cousins who were adopted and Courtney’s dad was adopted by her grandfather, so we both know the love adoption can bring to a family. Once we realized that Courtney could not safely get pregnant, adoption became the path to help us realize our dream of having a family and we couldn’t be more thrilled. We started the adoption journey two years ago and we would be honored if you selected us and helped us make adoption a reality.

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
