dear expectant mother
We want to thank you for taking the time to read our profile. We know this must be a complicated time in your life, but we feel so fortunate your choice may help us grow our family. We’re grateful you are considering giving us this incredible gift.
Your baby will know every day just how special they are and how deeply they are loved. When you think about the life this baby will have, know this child will be joining a big family that truly supports one another and celebrates our differences. It can be chaotic at times as we all gather to talk and laugh but in the best possible way.
We can’t wait to share all our family traditions with this baby, whether it is going on a family vacation or having family game nights. Your baby will be in a house full of laughter and support from not only us but from grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. Your child already has a support system that can’t wait to welcome them home and surround them with love.
Thank you again, and we can’t wait to talk and learn more about you.
You might not be able to find two people who are so different but fit together so perfectly. We met in 2014 at a cupcake shop and stayed out all night talking and getting to know one another. We quickly realized we were meant for each other and were married in 2017. We love helping people through our jobs: Emily as a hair stylist and Chris as a personal trainer. We currently live on the East Coast with our two dogs, Eeyore and Roo. Emily’s favorite thing to do is have cookouts with the neighbors, and Chris’s favorite thing to do is have his friends over to play cards.
Our Home & Pets
We have a four-bedroom home in a cul-de-sac that backs up to a horse farm. We built our home in 2018 and have been slowly making it more personal, with plans for a playroom and plenty of space for family activities. Our neighborhood is fairly new, but that hasn’t stopped us from building close relationships with a wonderful core group of neighbors who have become close friends. Our community has walking paths, playgrounds, a baseball field, and a dog park. We live about an hour outside of a major city and enjoy the best of both worlds. Our home is surrounded by mountains and farms, but a short drive will take us to museums, zoos, and parks we hope to enjoy with our child someday soon.
Our Extended Family
Emily grew up as the middle child of three girls, and Chris has a younger sister. We are both still incredibly involved with our families: talking daily with parents and siblings, monthly game nights with those who are local, and video games online with those far away.
Most of Emily’s family lives within an hour of us, and we get together almost weekly. One of our favorite traditions is our huge family Halloween party. Every summer, we rent a large house to get together with Emily’s parents and her sisters and their families on the beach. This kicks off a week of family time laying by the pool, visiting the aquarium, playing in the waves, and go-cart racing.
Emily grew up the daughter of a Marine. Chris and his parents were all in the military. This family history has made Memorial Day and the Fourth of July big events for us. We also love getting together with our families for painting, pottery, or putt-putt golf. Chris’s family isn't local, but when visiting them, we enjoy going to the butterfly museum, Renaissance Fair, and Niagara Falls. Chris and his family get together weekly for game night, either remotely or in person.
What Led Us To Adoption
We knew from early in our relationship that we both wanted a family. Growing up with siblings, nieces, and nephews, we always knew having kids was in our future. After years of trying, our only pregnancy ended in miscarriage, which was followed by many months of failed infertility treatments. We quickly concluded that everything happens for a reason and we were meant to be parents by adoption.

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
