dear expectant mother
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for having the courage to consider adoption and for taking the time to learn about us. We have been praying for you for a long time and hope you get to feel as at peace with your decision as we do with our decision to adopt. We deeply admire you and the strength it takes for you to follow this path.
We have so much love to give and need you to know that if you choose us, we will do everything to provide your baby with unconditional love, an unwavering support system, and a place for them to grow and know their value. We will encourage them to follow their dreams and have a strong sense of purpose.
We are so excited to grow our family and would feel incredibly blessed if you choose to entrust us with your baby. We were both lucky to have parents who provided all the tools for us to build our lives with a strong foundation of love, family, and a relationship with God. We feel honored to have the opportunity to provide the same things for our future children.
We are forever grateful for your decision to consider the path of adoption and for considering us as potential parents to your baby.
With much love,
Dylan and Ada
We met seven years ago while working our college jobs and have been together since. We live and work in beautiful Southwest Virginia, surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains. Ada works as a civil engineer and Dylan as a sales engineer. Though we are both engineers, our personalities are very different! Dylan is outgoing, loves sports, cooking, connecting with people, and making Ada laugh. Ada is more introverted and a perfectionist. She loves to decorate, paint, and sing along to any John Legend song at the top of her lungs. We both enjoy going hiking, walking around the neighborhood, traveling together or simply staying home cuddling with our dogs and finding a funny show to watch. We love playing board games, some of our favorites are trouble, dominoes and Phase 10. When it's warm out, watching our dogs run around from our backyard swing is our happy place.
Our Home & Pets
We moved into our home in 2019. After putting some hard work into it, we have made it a cozy home we really love. Our two-story, four-bedroom home has a fenced-in backyard our two dogs thoroughly enjoy. We love our peaceful neighborhood and are lucky to have friendly neighbors of all ages, always willing to help us out anytime we travel. The local schools, a park, and a greenway are all within walking distance. We have a four-year-old border collie named Jax and a seven-year-old beagle mix named Bella. We got Jax in early 2021, and Dylan found Bella as a puppy in a dumpster before we started dating. They both love people and chasing each other in our backyard.
Our Extended Family
Family is so important to both of us and is a big part of who we are. Dylan has one older sister, who is married and has two baby girls. We see Dylan’s family often since they live only an hour and a half away. We take turns visiting each other and love spending time with all of them. We’ve enjoyed meeting them at pumpkin patches, aquariums, and hiking trails and have taken many beach trips with them.
Ada and her family moved to the States when she was nine. She is the fourth of five girls and maintains a close relationship with them all. The oldest sister lives in Mexico with her husband and two kids and the rest of Ada’s extended family. We just got to see them all for Christmas 2021 and loved it so much. We plan to visit Mexico often to stay in touch with Ada’s roots and culture. The second oldest sister recently moved to Austin, and even though she is often traveling, she visits us frequently. Both of Ada’s parents and two other sisters live in the same town as us. We love to grab lunch or dinner with them or meet at dog parks and greenways around town with all the family dogs.
What Led Us To Adoption
We are grateful to have relationships with several people who have gone through the adoption process and feel their support on this path. Our small church has families who have shared their adoption journey with us, including our pastor, who led us through our premarital counseling.
On one of our first dates, adoption was a topic of discussion, and it has been in our hearts for a long time. We see adoption as something that just makes sense for us, and although we’re not closed off to the idea, we’ve never tried having biological children. After much prayer and consideration, we feel confident this is the best path for us and can’t wait to share our home, our family, and all the love we have.

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!
