dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Parent,
First, we would like to thank you for allowing us to introduce ourselves and tell you about our lives. As a gay couple, we knew having a family would be difficult. Still, we can't even begin to imagine your difficulty in deciding to create an adoption plan for your future child. Words cannot express how grateful we are for your consideration for the honor of raising your child.
We have been together for six years and married for three of those. As cheesy as it sounds, our relationship is overflowing with love, and we want to share that with your child. Although we don't have the most extravagant things, we both have stable jobs and can provide everything a child could need. That is especially true of a caring support system composed of our siblings, parents, cousins, and friends. We also live in an area with good schools and endless activities. We will work hard to give your child the education and life experience that will bring them joy and make them a well-rounded member of society. We will do this while supporting their passions and allowing them to grow into the person they desire to be.
We know we are meant to be parents. If fortunate enough to be chosen, please know that your child will be cared for and loved immensely. We will also ensure they recognize your love and courage in making this decision. Thank you for taking the time to read this letter.
Dorin & Jose
In 2016 a mutual friend introduced us, and our love story began. We got married in 2020 and are happy to be back near family in California as of 2021. As a couple, we are a combination of laid back and adventurous, hardworking but goofy, fun-loving, and family oriented. Dorin’s favorite things about Jose are his endless optimism and sense of humor. Even though he often overthinks things, Jose loves how funny Dorin is. Dorin is an automotive engineer and works from home most of the time. Jose is an EKG technician at a local hospital. These careers have allowed us to spend time traveling, which is one of our favorite hobbies. While at home, we enjoy gardening, playing with our pets, and having game nights with our nieces and nephew. Most of all, we like spending time together wherever we are.
Our Home & Pets
We recently moved back to California to a quiet neighborhood with highly rated schools and many young families. Our Spanish-style ranch home is situated on a cul-de-sac, with a large front yard and fenced back yard, perfect for our three dogs (Bandit, Sierra, and Rhea) and future child. We’re within walking distance of multiple parks and only a short drive from great activities like sports facilities, a waterpark, Disneyland, and Knott’s Berry Farm. Exploring the mountains or lounging on the beach are less than an hour away. Best of all, we are near our friends and Jose’s family! We’re both animal lovers and have two cats (Waffles and Rogu) in addition to our dogs.
Our Extended Family
We both come from large extended families that shaped the people we are today. Dorin only has one older brother, but his mom is one of eight children so he has more cousins than he could keep track of as a kid. Because his grandparents played an integral role in their childhoods, his cousins are more like siblings. Although we don’t live near his family, Dorin remains close to them. We see his parents a couple of times each year and talk to them at least once a week. One of Dorin’s favorite things is going back to Wyoming for family events at his aunt’s cabin.
Jose is one of four children. His siblings have blessed us with a nephew and nieces, with a fourth on the way! We take turns hosting family dinners with his siblings, dad, and in-laws. We see his cousins from both sides and the families regularly. We also have a great community of chosen family members and a ten-year-old goddaughter bursting with personality. Both of our families are as excited as we are about adopting a child.
What Led Us To Adoption
When we started dating, the topic of family was one of the first things we discussed. We both grew up in large, tight-knit families and agreed we wanted to give a child the same love and support we got growing up. After a year of marriage, we knew it was time to start our family and spent months investigating our options. Finally, we excitedly decided on adoption. We started the adoption process about two years ago. Still, life is full of unexpected events, and we had to put our adoption journey on hold. Although it took longer than planned to get to this point, we look forward to providing a safe, supportive, and loving home.

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
