dear expectant mother
To a Loving Mother,
This is a difficult letter to write to someone you haven’t met. It is also difficult for you to gain insight into our lives. We can only hope the same forces that have driven us all to this point in our lives will also see to it that we find each other. We have a lot of love left to give and only wish for that opportunity to give it.
We want you to know how much we admire you for your strength. We understand even thinking about adoption for your precious, soon-to-be born child is a very difficult decision and one that takes courage. It is a selfless decision, and we would be honored to be considered as a family for your child.
A new child will add so much to our lives: more love, more laughter, and a lifetime of new memories for us and our family. We promise to cherish and love your child with all our hearts and souls and to provide a safe, happy home with every opportunity possible. You can also be assured that the gift you give will never be taken for granted. Our thoughts and prayers are with you whatever decision you make. This is your decision, and it must be right for you.
We met through mutual friends when we were in college, and the rest is history. We had a lot of similarities and just really hit it off with each other. Josh is super funny, passionate, and hard-working. Elissa is very outgoing, kind, and always up for anything. We got married in September of 2010. Josh recently took over his family business with his brother and has been succeeding very well. Elissa works for her dad at a family-owned plumbing business. We have three beautiful kids: our daughter Charlie who’s eight years old and in second grade, Henry who’s six years old and in kindergarten, and Leo who’s three and stays at home with Elissa two days a week but also gets to visit his grandparents during the week as well. The kids definitely keep us on our toes, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a peaceful and quiet rural subdivision with land. Our house is a ranch with five bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and an open concept. We’ve recently put in an inground pool, and it has been the best decision by far. What we love about our neighborhood is the fact that we have the space to run around, the roads are quiet, and we have such a family-friendly neighborhood with a lot of kids. We have two dogs at home: a yellow lab mix whose name is Jack that is 12 and a black lab mix whose name is Reggie that is 10.
Our Extended Family
We are both extremely lucky to come from such loving families. Josh has one younger brother who is married and has three boys close in age with our kids. Josh’s parents, although no longer together, still live very close by to help us out with the kids. Elissa has one older sister who is married and also has three boys who are close in age with our kids. Elissa has two younger brothers and one younger stepbrother. It is so nice having them all close by and getting the kids together to play. Elissa’s parents, who are also separated, live close by as well. We are so blessed to have all of our family near us. The kids get lots of family time that way. We also have been blessed with such wonderful friends whom we consider family.
One of our family traditions we look forward to each year is the Fourth of July. We spend it up north at our lake house with friends and family. We watch the parade, collect lots of candy, have a BBQ with everyone, and watch the fireworks from the lake on the boat.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always wanted to have a big family. After having three biological kids, we decided we would love to have more. We got pregnant with our fourth only to lose her at 16 weeks; we were heart broken. Our doctor had no definite answers as to why. After a couple of months, we tried again and got pregnant only to lose her at 18 weeks. After two devastating losses, our doctor concluded that Elissa was no longer able to carry a baby, thus leading us to adoption. We would love to expand our family and have the love, desire, and resources to adopt a child. We are excited to have the opportunity to grow our family.

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
