dear expectant mother
We cannot imagine all the emotions you’re feeling at this time. Having not been in your shoes before, we can’t pretend to know what you’re 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 prospect of bringing 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 God brings people together for a purpose and for His glory.
If you 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 about your decision.
We met in college, where Eric was a strength coach and Anna played basketball. We were married on June 28, 2008, and we honeymooned in St. Louis, Missouri. We have three children: Mckenzie (nine), Laney (seven), and Levi (four-and-a-half). Anna is a stay-at-home mom, and Eric is a pastor. As a family, we enjoy hiking, movies, bowling, board games, trips to the zoo, and traveling. But mostly, we love doing anything together to make memories. A fun thing we’ve done together was one year, on the Fourth of July, we laid on the trampoline, ate popcorn, and watched fireworks. Another year, we spent Thanksgiving with some friends in Virginia; while we were there, we hiked up a mountain! It was cold, but the kids loved looking out at the top. We also took a trip out East last December for Eric’s graduation, when he received his Master’s Degree. We stayed with friends and it was a great experience!
Our Home & Pets
We recently moved to a smaller town where the schools are great; the kids love them and have made so many friends! Our apartment has plenty of space: three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1900 square feet of safe space for the kids to play and let their imaginations run wild. Plus, we’re right on the square, so there’s plenty to do, see, and experience just minutes from our doorstep! Our neighbors are lovely, too, and we can’t wait to introduce a new little one.
Our Extended Family
Eric’s family lives about seven hours away from us. His mom and dad are Nana and Papaw, and his brother and sister (twins) are four years younger than he. His brother, David, and his wife have two sons and a daughter. We see them every summer and Christmas holiday, and they come visit in the months in between. Eric’s dad helps with household projects when he can, and we love to cook out with them and visit.
Anna’s family lives about ten hours away, and we always make a point to see them for holidays as well as making trips out when we can. Anna’s mom and dad are Mema and Papa, and Anna has an older sister and 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 adoption was in our future, and as we started building our family, we started to feel called to pursue it. Some of our friends have adopted, and we have loved witnessing the beauty and joy that filled their home when bringing a new child into their lives. We have wanted to add a fourth child to our family for quite some time 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
