dear expectant mother
We wanted to start this letter off just by saying hello and hoping the day has been kind to you! We can’t imagine the difficult decisions ahead of you, but we appreciate you taking the time to read about us.
When we first got married almost six years ago, we knew having biological children would be difficult. We knew ultimately adoption was the answer for us to have the family we always dreamed of. We are thankful each and every day to know the love that is in our home! We can’t wait to build a family and welcome a baby into our lives. They will be embraced by a large, close-knit, supportive family.
We look forward to creating new memories and new traditions by welcoming a child into our lives. We spend our time exploring, laughing, and enjoying the little things in life, like the change of the leaves in the fall, the occasional snowstorm, and the beach in the summer. We also enjoy camping, traveling, volunteering, and movie nights at home. We can’t wait to experience these things with a child.
If you choose us, we respect any relationship you feel comfortable with and truly understand the complexity of this experience. Your child will always know the important role you have and what you mean to us. Thank you so much for considering us.

Our Home & Pets
We live in a very active community filled with new families. We can always find neighbors walking with their pups and sometimes their cats, along with pushing a stroller. Our neighborhood has its own open space, which is used as a play space for kids and movies in the park in the summer. Our neighborhood is very diverse and rich in history. Our community is very colorful, and most of the houses are painted in festive colors. You can usually find us on our porch talking to neighbors or walking about with our two dogs. Our pups are a chihuahua/dachshund mix named Abel with three legs and Willow the beagle. We also have a black and white cat named Goose. She was born in our neighbor's garden.
Our Extended Family
We have a large family. Roger has two siblings as well as a sister-in-law and a brother-in-law. His brother and sister-in-law are the proud parents of a baby girl who is now two years old. His sister and brother-in-law have four children. For many years, we were the host for family holiday gatherings like Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Diana has two brothers. One brother and sister-in-law have two daughters who are now in college. The other brother has one boy and two girls; both girls are college graduates, and the boy is now entering his last two years of high school. We all enjoy family gatherings and make it a point to celebrate birthdays, holidays, and special occasions together. On occasion, we have large family vacations. They are all so excited to love and support any child we are blessed to have join our family.
What Led Us To Adoption
Adoption gives us the hope of fulfilling our dream of becoming parents and having a family. We both have tons of nieces and nephews, and we have been waiting for the moment we can introduce a child into our ever-growing extended family. We knew many years ago that the journey to have children would be difficult for us. Ultimately, we decided the best decision and the greater joy would be through 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!
