dear expectant mother

As we think about how to write this letter to you, our hearts are filled with excitement and emotion. First, we would both like to thank you for reading our profile and considering us to be potential adoptive parents for your child. We truly admire your courage, generosity, and selflessness. We cannot begin to imagine how difficult this decision is for you, let alone having to decide through a profile who to consider as adoptive parents for your precious child.

If you choose us as adoptive parents, we would very much like the chance to learn more about you and for you to learn more about us (if you choose). We would cherish the opportunities to open our lives to you. We wish you much comfort and strength in this very important decision. Should your heart lead you to us as adoptive parents, please find comfort that we will show your child unconditional love and do everything in our power to raise and protect your child. We promise to do our best to nurture your child to the best of our abilities because you and the both of us want the best possible future for your baby.

About Us

We are Darran and David. Thank you for reading our profile. We met each other online about ten years ago, shortly after David moved from Pittsburgh for work. From the first night we met, we knew there was a strong connection. We have shared interests and life values. Darran is outgoing and an avid athlete.

David is a little more reserved, a quiet intellectual-type who’s good-natured, funny, and loves family time. During the week, we tend to stay home with our dog and cook dinners for each other. On weekends we really enjoy spending time together outdoors with our dog, Wags. We like taking in shows, concerts, or trying new restaurants. Our two great passions are travel and food. We look forward to sharing this love of exploration, learning, and creating joyful memories with a growing family.

Our Home & Pets

We live on a quiet tree-lined residential street in a beautiful two-bedroom two-bath condo. We have plenty of room to love, play with, and raise a child. The second bedroom is a great size for a child and we are already imagining and planning all of the ways to prepare it to be the perfect space for him and or her. Our home is in a family-friendly, safe, and sought-after neighborhood. We are across the street from one of the city’s best magnet schools and a multitude of restaurants and shops. Our dog, Wags, was so named because she is a quiet, sweet and gentle soul that doesn’t bark, and she loves being around children of all ages.

Our Extended Family

Darran’s family is located in many parts of the country. This provides great travel opportunities for us as a family. We love to travel because we get to experience a number of global customs and experiences. Darran’s family comes from Southeast Asia, India, Australia, and Western Europe, so they are accustomed to embracing cultures, languages, food, and travel.

David’s family is mostly within a few hours from us. We travel often to visit for holidays, special occasions, or just to spend time in the country relaxing. David’s mom is a preschool special needs teacher on the verge of retirement, she is excited to make many more visits and to spend extended amounts of time with us :-). David also has many aunts, uncles, cousins with children of all ages that would welcome an additional member of our family with joy, love, and open arms.

We are looking forward to creating new family traditions with our expanded family, which will involve a lot of special occasions with extended family and a group of very close friends.

What Led Us To Adoption

We talked about adoption for about four years to make sure, as a couple, we are ready for the life-enriching experiences an adoption would bring. We had many conversations with friends and family members, sought out information on child development for adoptive families, and discussed our fears and hopes. We wanted to gain as much knowledge and understanding to form our decision to expand our family. While this took time, we needed it to attune ourselves to the responsibilities, challenges, and joys of expanding our family. Most importantly, we needed to learn that we won’t have the answers for everything, but we know we can figure it out as a couple and extended family unit.

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!
