dear expectant mother
We will never be able to understand this difficult decision, but we want to come alongside you and help provide your child with a great opportunity to be happy, successful, and loved. We know this decision takes time, tears, and faith.
Our family is filled with teachers, so there is always an opportunity to learn. We will immerse your child in the world and different cultures through travel and hands-on experiences at places like museums and zoos. We have a lot of energy and are ready to fill our home with more happiness and many memories we will cherish forever. We are lucky to have a variety of sporting events, music, and local events we love to attend, and we will be raising your child in a church where we and our families are very involved! We look forward to the holidays and being surrounded by our large families while playing games, cooking family favorites, and having quality time. We also look forward to going to the park with our son and our friends and their children to help your child have many friends.
Thank you for considering us for this incredible opportunity. We are grateful and thankful for your consideration. You would not only be blessing us but our entire community. Your child will know of your love and decision. We will make sure they understand the importance of your decision and the sacrifice you were willing to make for them.
We met at a local church through a single’s ministries six years ago. Emily was a hostess for a game show, and Blake was a contestant. A week later, a mutual friend reached out to both of us about any interest in meeting. We dated and clicked, and we have been married for five years. Emily is an outgoing girl who works hard and loves to help other people, and Blake is always on the go and enjoys spending time with his wife and son. Emily is a dedicated fifth grade teacher at a small district, and Blake is a pediatric nurse at our local children’s hospital. We love traveling with our son and exposing him to different experiences, such as the zoo, beach, amusement parks, and anything where he can learn something new. We love to work out, spend time with friends and family, and serve others.
Our Home & Pets
Our house has been a hub for many get-togethers with family and friends, and we are ready for a sibling to help fill our home. We have two neighborhood parks within walking distance that contain ballfields and playground equipment. Our number one reason for buying this house is that the school district is one of the best in the city for the children we are confident the Lord will bless us with. We are members of a local community center that has a large splash pad and pool as well as great kids’ programming. We have a very large park (4,000 acres) within ten minutes that is home to buffalo, a large playground, and a large lake with trails to walk or run on.
Our Extended Family
We grew up with similar family dynamics, so it was an easy transition when we got married. Our families live very close to each other, and both sides of our families attend the same church. Blake has one brother, and Emily has one sister; they are a few years apart. Our son loves playing with his cousins; they live a few miles away.
Some of our favorite traditions include serving the community with our parents. When we disclosed our plan for each adoption, both sets of parents were 100% on board with our decision without hesitation. The cousins are super excited to meet the new addition.
Our Adoption Story
Adopting our son has changed our lives in the best way possible! We have learned so much through this process. Our hearts have opened to his birthmom and her kids. We are so connected with his birthfamily. We want to adopt again because we know our son is going to be a fantastic older sibling. We have met so many families with their own adoption story. It is exciting that our son gets to grow up around a supportive adoptive community. We first started talking about adoption on our third date and knew this was where the Lord had led us. It has far exceeded our high expectations we had when starting this. We still have so much love to give your child.

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
