dear expectant mother
As we write these words, we are tearful and in awe of you. We cannot even imagine the strength and courage you have inside of you. We aspire to always remind your baby of these incredibly special and selfless attributes you have. We pray your child inherits all of those same traits.
We believe a family makes a choice to come together and love one another and that love tells a story that lasts for generations. Your consideration has the ability to meet us on the path as we are telling our love story. We are undeniably grateful for that. Please know your baby will be loved. They will be supported and encouraged to be their best self. We will play with them, work alongside them, and teach them to love others and to love themselves. We will teach them about Jesus and explain to them how we are all God’s adopted children. We will show them the beauty of music and expose them to as much of the world through travel as we can. We will protect them. They will have strong support systems, exceptional educational opportunities, and the freedom to pursue their dreams!
Words really cannot sufficiently express how thankful we are for you. If it is meant to be, our journey with you is just beginning, and we are so excited for our stories to merge and grow.
David has been a cheesemaker for his family’s business for the last nine years. He is hardworking, fun loving, smart, talented, and he loves others deeply and completely. The fact that he can always supply cheese at parties is just a bonus! Jenna is a social worker at a nursing home. She loves with all her heart, is always joking around, and works tirelessly to achieve her goals. We met at a summer church camp when we were in college. Working so closely in that environment gave us a deep appreciation for each other. We dated long distance for almost three years before tying the knot and moving to Virginia. Family called us home to Ohio in 2011. We love to travel and to spend time with our large extended family and our wonderful friends from church. Music and food play a big role in our family.
Our Home & Pets
We moved into our dream home in a quiet, small town in Ohio two years ago. There are four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a large basement space with lots of room for a drum set, piano, and lots of toys! There are always neighborhood kids out and about, riding their bikes or playing tag. The local school system is highly regarded, and the community is full of other families that have adopted children. Also, our church has a vibrant children’s ministry where your child will be loved and supported throughout their childhood. We have a very sweet two-year-old dog named Stella. She absolutely loves children of all ages and cannot wait to meet your child and become their first best friend.
Our Extended Family
We are so blessed to have such a wonderful family! David’s family is large and close. He has four siblings, including three sisters and one brother. His mother and stepfather live just 45 minutes away, and they take loving on their grandchildren very seriously. He has several aunts, uncles, and cousins whom he sees every day at work. Since David works for a family business, a favorite family tradition is to celebrate their Swiss heritage. There is a festival and much history to share and enjoy. Family holidays are usually celebrated later in the season and come complete with tons of food, toys, laughs, and love.
Jenna has two older brothers who are not local but keep in touch with video chats and phone calls. Her mother and father live just one state over and are beyond excited to welcome a baby into the family. Jenna’s family passed on a love for homemade food, especially pie! As the saying goes, “The way to the heart is through the stomach.” Our entire family is excited and ready to welcome your child in with both support and unending love.
What Led Us To Adoption
A desire to grow our family through adoption comes from two places. First is our faith. We truly believe adoption is a miracle. Second, the desire comes from watching our friends and family who have adopted navigate through this beautiful process with love and grace. Their families have been unspeakably blessed with children and extended family they would not have known otherwise. Our home is bursting with love, and we are so excited at the prospect of sharing that love with your child.

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
