dear expectant mother
Thank you for taking the time to look at our profile. We appreciate even being considered to raise your baby. We cannot imagine the difficulty of making these decisions for you and your baby. Know that we consider adoption to be a very brave, honorable, and yet difficult choice that comes from a place of the greatest love and hope for you and your baby.
We have built a loving and happy life together and are so hopeful to welcome a child into our lives. Your baby will have a safe, loving home that we want to fill with so many happy memories for them. They will be surrounded by the love and support of our family and friends. They will grow up enjoying family traditions, ones we have enjoyed for years and new ones we can create together. They will be read to, baked with, explored with, colored with, and played with, and we will work to develop them into a well-rounded person.
We want your child to have a life full of experiences and opportunities to help them grow into a kind, smart, and wonderful human being who values family, education, and religion. We are excited and humbled by this process and will never stop honoring the decision you are making.
We first met in college when our roommates, who were dating at the time, introduced us to one another. Ever since that day…fireworks! Elizabeth found enjoyment in cheering for Drew as he competed on the swim team. Often Drew would be so distracted by Elizabeth that he would nearly miss his race. We dated for several years throughout college and were married in 2011. We are a fun-loving, hardworking, and adventurous couple who approach life head on and full steam ahead. Drew works as a shop manager for a large equipment company. Elizabeth is a pediatric occupational therapist who performs in-home therapy with babies and toddlers to help them achieve their developmental milestones. With our careers successfully on track, we are excited about the possibility of adoption and memories to be made as a family.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a small, rural community in Indiana. We have a spacious home that sits on several acres of land, so there is lots of room to run, play, and view wildlife. There are several well-maintained parks and indoor play areas in our community. While we live in a rural setting, we have several large cities within an hour’s drive of our house, with children’s museums and other fun activities for kids. We have three wonderful dogs: Vicky, Coco, and Ruby. They have all spent time around the children we have fostered and love having kids around to play with.
Our Extended Family
Our families are thrilled at the possibility of adding a new family member! Elizabeth has a large family that is within an hour drive of our home. We enjoy visiting with them as often as possible for dinner or long walks through the state park that is nearby. Elizabeth has one sibling, an older sister who is expecting her first child this year. We cannot wait to be an aunt and uncle and are excited about the possibility of cousins growing up together.
While all of Drew’s family is in another state, we visit and talk frequently. Drew’s parents live in Arizona, where he is from, and his only sister lives in Virginia with her husband.
We love to gather as a family for the holidays. Both sides of our extended families come together to celebrate any occasion, and 40 or more people attend these gatherings! We are looking forward to the everyday activities that come with having a child, like bedtime stories, family dinners, and trips to the park.
What Led Us To Adoption
Since being married, we have always wanted to grow our family. After years of trying and fertility treatments, we were blessed with a positive pregnancy test! The joy in that moment confirmed our desire to be parents. After having a miscarriage, we grew even closer and had an increased longing to be parents. We fostered two sweet boys for several months. Parenting brought out the best in us. We loved having kids in our home to explore our world in a whole new way! We feel God has led us to adoption to help grow our family. We know several families that have grown through adoption, and we know we will have a strong support system to guide us along our journey.

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
