dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
This isn’t easy. We can only imagine the emotions you’re feeling as you consider an adoption plan for your precious baby. You are strong and brave, and we admire your selflessness and courage. While we can’t fully express our gratitude, we want to thank you for reviewing our profile and considering us to love and raise your child.
Please know we will do everything we can to offer your child a loving and secure upbringing, a strong sense of belonging, and the love and support of our extended family and community. We will raise your baby with encouragement and honesty, and we will support all of their dreams. We will share with them what an amazing mom you are and how much you love them. We would like our child to know who their birth family is, where they came from, and that they have so many people who love and care about them. We are completely open to any relationship you wish to have with us and your child.
We are endlessly grateful for your consideration and want you to know what an incredible honor it would be to begin this journey with you. Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you consider your options. We look forward to getting to know you and learning all we can from one another.

Saf was born and raised in England (and has a wonderful accent), and Dana was born and raised in Michigan. Our relationship began with a decade-long friendship that eventually turned into our love story. We believe the strength of our friendship is the core strength to our marriage. We both work hard at our careers, so in our personal lives, we try not to take ourselves too seriously. Music and laughter fill our home, along with the sweet squeals of our daughter playing. We enjoy traveling and getting outdoors as much as we can. We also love hosting family and friends at our home; the louder and busier, the better, especially with the children running around! Saf is hilarious, intelligent, kind, and adventurous, and Dana is thoughtful, creative, generous, and fun. We have a lovely daughter, Sophie, who will be the BEST big sister, and a supportive family waiting to welcome another child.
Home is our favorite place to be! We have a great backyard for entertaining, a swing set, and a colorful playroom in our basement. We have plenty of space for our growing family to build memories together. Our neighborhood is full of young families with a lovely sense of community. We live just across the street from an elementary school that is highly awarded. Local shops, restaurants, our community library, bike trails, and playgrounds are all just a short walk away. In the evenings, you’ll find us taking a walk around the neighborhood or relaxing on our front porch, visiting with neighbors as they pass by.
Our Extended Family
Dana has a large family living all across the Midwest. We live just three blocks away from Dana’s sister and brother-in-law and their two sweet dogs.
Saf’s mum lives in England, as does his extended family. Although there’s distance between us, we talk often and have a family text thread to share photos and silly things throughout the week. Saf’s mum comes to visit for a month each year, and we travel to England once a year too, which is an incredibly fun adventure for all of us!
As a family, we treasure being together at the holidays and love baking in our matching PJs and playing games. Christmas Eve is always a fiesta, and we celebrate Boxing Day, which is an English tradition and a bonus day to be together. Besides Christmas, our family’s favorite week of the year is our annual summer vacation filled with boating, yard games, relaxing, and endless laughter.
What Led Us To Adoption
From the beginning, we dreamed of having children and building a family together. Dana has three adopted cousins and two close family friends who were adopted at birth. Seeing how these families grew out of love and choice has been beautiful to witness. For us, adopting means FAMILY and all that comes with it! We include you in that statement and would welcome you if that's what you choose. We are so excited and hopeful to grow our family. We know there will be challenges along the way, but we are ready and completely committed to providing a safe and loving home for our future child. Sophie is so excited to have a sibling as well!

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!
