dear expectant mother
First of all, thank you. We admire the strength, bravery, and resilience you are demonstrating in making this very difficult decision. While we will never be able to experience the thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations tied to your pregnancy, please know we want to know as much as you want to share with us. We are so grateful you are even taking the time to consider us as potential parents for your baby.
We believe kids are just about the best people around. Their curiosity, honesty, wonder, humor, and innocence are things we consider sacred. We would be honored to nurture your child into the amazing person he or she was meant to be. We intend to provide a childhood and life that will help your child know he or she is safe, loved, and fully supported by all of our family and friends.
We envision many wonderful memories with your baby: family dinners and trips to Disney World and many other wonderful places. We imagine the little things too: books before bedtime, board games, building a snowman, cuddling with the dog, or making up silly songs. We can picture it, and we hope you can too. And when you do picture your child with us, we especially hope you picture how much we would forever be honored to be chosen for your baby.
Our never ending message to you: “Thank you. We are so grateful.”
Although we went to the same high school, we didn’t really get to know each other until after we graduated from college. We both grew up in the same town and really bonded over our love of our hometown and having family and good friends close by! Friends and family describe us as goofy, patient, compassionate, and committed. Jordan is a middle school science and history teacher, and Devin is a social worker in the medical field. In our free time, we really enjoy making each other laugh and are very involved with our community. We have enjoyed our time as a family of two, but we can hardly wait to begin our adoption journey!
Our Home & Pets
We love our house, but we especially love our neighborhood! We have grown a wonderful community of friends in our neighborhood, and we take a lot of pride in keeping our big yard full of flowers. A particular joy are the peonies that bloom each spring in front of our house; they were our wedding flowers! We live in a ranch home with plenty of space for the “queen of the house,” our dog, Granger. Granger is a smart, sweet, and energetic two-year-old rescue pup who is ready for a human sibling! One of the things we are looking forward to the most is playing outside and going on walks as a family with Granger and our little one.
Our Extended Family
Devin’s parents both live in town and come over at least weekly for a home-cooked meal prepared by the two of us. If we aren’t eating at our house, Devin’s mom might be making homemade ravioli at her house, or maybe Devin’s dad might be taking us out to Jordan’s favorite restaurant for tacos. We also enjoy playing card games and going to local events like live music and ball games.
We love having a close relationship with both sides of our family. Jordan’s sister, brother-in-law, and two nephews are driving distance away, and we make it a habit to text, FaceTime, and get together regularly. We especially love going on travel adventures with Jordan’s side of the family and have been to Disney World twice in the last few years. We are also very grateful that our families love one another, and we have had many holidays and celebrations together. Our family is thrilled to shower our future baby with so much love and affection. We will not have any shortage of supporters and protectors for this kiddo.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have both known from a young age that we wanted to be parents. One of the most important discussions we’ve had as a couple was our vision for our future family. We are very fortunate to have lots of immediate and extended family members nearby, and we both shared the desire to provide a similar “kid-centric” experience for a little one. Devin especially had considered adoption as a means of starting or growing a family, and when we began to understand that biological children may not be in our future, we both excitedly opened ourselves up to the possibility of adoption.

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
