dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mom,
We can't help but wonder how you must be feeling. We cannot even fathom how difficult this must be for you and can't express how grateful we are you are considering an adoption plan and us to raise your baby. The strength and courage you display in considering this option fills us with admiration. We cannot express the degree of gratitude we feel that you would consider us for this blessing.
We have had a difficult journey in becoming the family we so want to be and are beyond grateful for the opportunity to grow our family through adoption. We never take for granted how lucky we are and ensure that every day is spent living life to the fullest.
We can picture your baby here with us. Our daughter would be such a great big sister. We can picture them playing together, growing together, and being the best of friends. We look forward to family activities together and cannot wait to take your baby to the beach for the first time, to craft with them, and to teach them about the world around them.
Words can’t even come close to explaining how we will cherish your baby and how grateful we are to you for giving us the opportunity to grow our family. Please trust that we will spend every day of our lives in gratitude for the sacrifice you are making. We know this is not easy and hope you can trust we will take great care of your baby.
We met online while playing a video game. Crystal is from Canada, and Joshua is from NH. After meeting for the first time, Crystal decided to move to NH a few months later so we could be together, and we’ve been driving each other crazy for about eight years now!
Josh is a funny, honest, and caring person. He would do anything for those who are close to him. Josh works driving trucks and assisting with supervising for a trucking company. He is extremely hardworking and dedicated. In just over a year, he was promoted to a supervisor role. Crystal is a quiet, kind, compassionate, and loyal person. While she can be introverted, once she gets to know you, she opens up. Crystal works in health insurance. She is extremely dedicated and has been promoted several times throughout the years at her employer.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a three-bedroom home with a large front yard and a fun play area. We have a little over two acres of land and take advantage of everything we have. We love to spend summers on the deck or in the pool, hanging out with family and friends. We have the perfect hills for sledding and the best areas for making snowmen and snow angels in the winter. We also have a mobile home in an RV resort in Maine that we visit on weekends. We love to take trips to the beach as well. We have two dogs. They are big babies and are great with kids. They are the best snugglers.
Our Extended Family
Family is extremely important to both of us. Crystal misses her family back in Canada every day. Thankfully technology has made it easy to communicate. Her parents are still married—38 years now. She has two sisters, who are her best friends, and three nephews and two nieces. We try to go back to Canada for a visit at least once a year, and when we do, we get to spend time not only with immediate family but aunts, uncles, and cousins too!
Josh is close with his father and brother. His dad lives with us and is a great help in taking care of our daughter. He honestly lights up her life. Josh’s brother and his wife also live with us in an in-law suite. They are also extremely close with us and our daughter. Josh has another brother and two sisters, all who have kids. He has a total of five nieces and five nephews. We are also very close with Josh’s aunt, uncle, and cousins and spend many holidays with them.
What Led Us To Adoption
We’ve struggled for years to start the family we’ve always wanted due to infertility issues. We were lucky enough that after our first IVF cycle, we got pregnant. Unfortunately, our son passed away at 33 weeks gestation. We were devastated. After several months, we decided to continue with IVF in an effort to get pregnant again. Three cycles later, we were lucky enough to welcome Harper to our family. She was born at 32 weeks due to the same issues that had been discovered with our son. We were advised not to become pregnant again as it isn’t safe for Crystal or a child. We still crave a bigger family. After some thinking, we decided adoption was for us. We cannot wait to add to our family and share all the love we have to offer.

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
