dear expectant mother
We are Donna and Brady, and we are so grateful that you’ve chosen to take the time to learn about us and the journey we are on. Having never walked in your shoes, we can only imagine the thoughts and countless decisions that you’ve already made to lead you here. We want you to know that if your heart leads you and your baby to us, he or she will always know you and understand where they began and the great sacrifice you made for them.
If we are destined to be given the honor of raising your baby, we will be forever grateful for this most precious gift. Your baby will be raised in a family that will love them unconditionally. They will be raised by two loving parents and a huge extended family, complete with grandparents, aunties, uncles, and lots of cousins and friends. They will be encouraged and supported to be exactly who they are. They will express themselves and learn to respect the expressions of others. They will experience life to the fullest through love, travel, adventure, education, fun, laughter, music, and compassion. Most importantly, they will always, always, have a soft place to land.
As you navigate this path, we will pray for you and your family and hope you can feel love, comfort, and peace in your decision.
Over twenty years ago, we were introduced by our parents. After completing college, we purchased our first home together, got engaged, and were married in 2011 on the beach in Jamaica. Donna is a nurturer at her core and is kind, honest, and hardworking. She has been employed for the past fourteen years as a social worker, and in her spare time, she likes to work on home projects, bake, shop, watch movies, and plan weddings. Brady is intelligent, witty, and hardworking. He is a huge football fan and loves to play hockey. He also loves music, is an avid reader, has a gift for photography, and loves animals. He is employed as an applications analyst at a local hospital. As a couple, we love to spend time with family and are also homebodies much of the time, enjoying the simple things in life.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a spacious four-bedroom home, located on a quiet and safe cul-de-sac with only three other homes. Our neighbors all have young children that spend time outside riding bikes and playing without fear of traffic. Our one-acre yard is wooded in the back and often invites deer for us to feed, and we enjoy sitting on our deck or at our fire pit to take in nature and the stars. Our city offers many amenities, festivals, events, and concerts that we enjoy attending as well. Our pug, Sulu, was adopted from a pug rescue about two years ago. She is a delight and loves to go for walks and visit neighborhood children and other dogs.
Our Extended Family
Donna is very close with her parents and was raised as an only child until the age of six, when her baby sister was adopted. Donna’s parents are retired and have a home in Texas, where they spend winter and spring. During the summer and fall, they live close to our home on a lake, which allows for lots of visits. We love to spend time on the pontoon boat, fishing and relaxing.
Brady was raised in a large family and has six siblings. We love to spend birthdays, holidays, and summers together. Christmas and New Years are especially celebrated in our family. We have also traveled to Florida on a few occasions to visit extended family. During the summer, we spend time with Brady’s siblings, tubing down a local lazy river. Brady is a huge music lover and will take trips a few times a year with his siblings to go enjoy his favorite bands.
Our family is everything. We love being an auntie and uncle to all of our nieces and nephews, and we’re beyond excited to be able to introduce a new little one into all of the fun. Our family is thrilled with our news to expand our little family with the addition of a baby.
What Led Us To Adoption
As a couple, we have had the opportunity to travel, focus on our careers and hobbies, build a beautiful home, and spend lots of quality time together. However, there is a missing piece to our story. We have come to this place of wanting to become parents a bit later in our lives, and we too want to experience that “no greater” kind of love with a child. Adoption is the natural choice for us as it is close to our hearts: Donna’s sister was adopted. We both strongly believe that love is what makes a family. We can’t wait for our adoption journey to begin and will welcome all of the new experiences with open hearts.

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
