dear expectant mother
We would like to take a moment to express our gratitude for you considering us to raise your baby. This possibility is a blessing we do not take for granted. We want you to know how loved you are and how loved your baby will be. There will always be an invisible string that connects our hearts to one another forever.
Family is everything; we truly believe this. Your child will know that too. We believe in the importance of your child knowing the brave and selfless decision you made for them. Your child will know what an incredible mother you are and will know how much you love them. We know this decision is bittersweet, and we support the level of comfort and contact you want to have with us. Ultimately, we want our child to be loved by as many people as possible.
Building our family will be our greatest accomplishment, and we are grateful for the possibility. A child in our life would add more love and laughter to our home. We will teach them the importance of loving themselves and will always encourage them to follow their heart. We will support them in their dreams and help them rebuild in their defeats. We will love them and you unconditionally for the rest of our lives. We wait in joyful anticipation with endless faith and overwhelming excitement about adding to our family in this beautiful way.
We are Matt and Elissa! We met online and hit it off right away. Matt is hardworking, kind, and a movie lover. Elissa is kind, honest, and always ready to lend a helping hand. Matt works a fast-paced job in a warehouse, while Elissa is a therapist. We own a cute home in New England, and you can find us at farmers markets, at the beach, and spending time with loved ones. During the week, you can find us trying new recipes, playing with our dog, and catching up on our favorite shows. When football season comes around, Elissa roots for the Steelers while Matt roots for the Chiefs. Our favorite tradition is hosting Thanksgiving in our home and watching the road race in our town with our family. We love to travel and explore new places, something we hope to continue to do as we expand our family.
Our Home & Pets
We bought our cute three-bedroom home in Matt’s hometown and live close to his parents and his sister and her family. Between the three homes, we have a pool we spend our summer days in, a beautiful backyard to run around in, and cousins all around. Our neighborhood is connected to the main road where the annual Thanksgiving road race is held. This has become a new tradition for our family, where we have breakfast together and watch the race every year. Our neighborhood is filled with kids and families. Our neighborhood hosts a block party every year, which we enjoy! We cannot wait to rock our baby on our front porch while watching the sunset as the neighborhood kids play.
Our Extended Family
We may be biased, but we believe we have the most loving, kind, and supportive family out there! Our family values birthdays, holidays, and spontaneous get-togethers. Our family is our world, and we enjoy every moment with them.
We love Christmas with both sides of our family. Matt’s family has a Christmas brunch where we take family photos, eat family recipes, and play a comedic grab bag game. Elissa’s family celebrates Christmas over the course of a few days. The celebrations include church, family photos, big Italian meals, and lots of laughter. Every year we open one gift on Christmas Eve—pjs and a movie. We can’t wait to include our baby in this tradition. Another tradition we love is the Fourth of July at Elissa’s mom’s house. We have a large group BBQ and end the night with fireworks.
Our family is ecstatic to welcome the newest member of our family. With the majority of our family living in the same state as us, we see them often and are continuously building memories with them. One thing is for sure: Our lives are never dull and are filled with lots of love, support, and laughter.
What Led Us To Adoption
Adoption has been close to our hearts since the start of our relationship. Elissa was adopted at birth, and we feel it has impacted her life in many ways. Elissa’s family has always been pro-adoption and made her aware and proud of where she came from. As we grow our family through adoption, we plan to always incorporate our child’s roots into their life. We want them to be proud of their heritage and know they are loved by so many. When Elissa was diagnosed with PCOS, we took time to pray and explore how we would grow our family. We soon after felt a great sense of peace in the decision to adopt, knowing firsthand the love adoption brings to a 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
