We cannot imagine all the emotions that you are feeling at this time. Having not been in your shoes before, we can’t pretend to know what you are feeling. However, we would love to develop an open relationship with you and be an encouragement to you.
We want to thank you so much for giving us the potential opportunity to bring your child into our home. We would consider it a tremendous blessing to be chosen as a family for your child. Not only are we excited about having another child in our home, we are anticipating building a relationship with you over the coming years. We firmly believe that God brings people together for a purpose and for His glory.
If you were to choose us as adoptive parents, we promise to love, protect, and care for your child. He or she will have a loving older brother and two loving older sisters. Our family will welcome your baby into a safe and secure environment where he or she will grow up being loved and cared for by many people, including a great church.
Again, we are honored that you would consider us. We are praying for you during this process that you would have peace with your decision.
Eric and Anna met in college where he was a strength coach and Anna played basketball. We spent a lot of time together. We were married on June 28, 2008, and we honeymooned in St. Louis, Missouri. We have three children: Mckenzie (eight), Laney (six), and Levi (three-and-a-half). Anna is a stay-at-home mom, and Eric is the youth pastor at our church.
As a family, we enjoy hiking, watching movies, bowling, playing board games, and traveling. But mostly we love doing anything together that will make memories. A fun thing we’ve done together recently was on the Fourth of July. We laid outside on the trampoline, ate popcorn, and watched fireworks. Last year we spent Thanksgiving with some friends in Virginia. The trip there was fun, but while we were there, we hiked up a mountain! It was cold, but the kids loved getting to the top and looking out.
Our Home & Pets
We purchased our home in December 2016. We have four bedrooms and two bathrooms. Two rooms are downstairs in the basement where there is also a large play area. There are two rooms on the main level. Our home is very spacious for kids to play in. Our backyard is fenced-in with a privacy fence. Our neighborhood is quiet and our neighbors are friendly.
Our Extended Family
Eric’s family lives about an hour away from us, so we see them pretty frequently. His mom and dad are Nana and Papaw. His brother and sister are twins and are four years younger than Eric. His brother has two sons, and he is newly married. We get together for most holidays and they come visit or stay with the kids in-between. Eric’s dad helps with household projects when he can. We like to cook out with them and visit.
Anna’s family lives about three-and-a-half hours away. Still, we see them for holidays. Every few months we try to make a trip to see them. Anna’s mom and dad are Mema and Papa. Anna has an older sister, and she also has a younger brother who is married. We enjoy helping take care of plants in their nursery and swimming at their house.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always felt that adoption was in our future. As we started building our family, we started to feel called to grow our family through adoption. Some of our friends have adopted, and we have loved witnessing the beauty and joy that filled their home. We have wanted to add a fourth child to our family and would love to do that through 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
