dear expectant mother
To a Loving Mother:
We would like to start off by saying thank you for considering us in your difficult and selfless decision. Considering giving us this opportunity to have a child means everything to us. We are eternally grateful for the chance to become a mother and father. Words really cannot express how thankful we are for you.
We thank you for the opportunity to regain something we have lost. We are not able to have children on our own, so the weight of this decision is not lost on us. If you were to choose us as the ones to care for your child, we know that decision would not be regretted. We look forward to passing on family recipes and wisdom we were taught as well as starting our own traditions. Their life will be filled with encouragement, compassion, and all the love in the world.
We are excited for the memories we will create together and look forward to sharing them with you, if you choose. Your child will know where they came from and the love you have for them. They will know of your bravery and our admiration for you.
We are Seth and Erica. We met at our workplace when we were 20. We were friends for about a year or two before Seth asked Erica out to the movies. We married three years ago but have been together for 11. We are very low-maintenance, down-to-earth people who place memories and experiences above material things. We love spending time together, whether going on vacation, going for a drive, or just hanging out at home with our dog. Seth loves to play video games with his friends or do woodworking, while Erica likes being curled up on the couch with a good book. Seth works for the city, and Erica is a surgical technologist at a nearby hospital. Even with our busy schedules, we always find a way to have quality time together every weekend.
Our Home & Pets
Our home is a three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath colonial nestled at the end of a cul-de-sac. Our street is in a small neighborhood that is approximately five minutes away from our local schools, cinemas, and supermarkets. Our house sits on just under an acre of land, giving us plenty of room to play in the yard and do any kind of activities we want. We love spending the summer outside playing in the yard with our six-year-old black Lab, Bear. He loves running around or just soaking up the sun.
Our Extended Family
We are lucky to have such a supportive, loving, and encouraging family. Our parents are very excited about us adopting and having our first child, Erica’s parents in particular because this will be their first grandchild. We are extremely close to our parents, and both of them live 15 minutes from our house; we see them often. Erica goes to her parents’ house almost every Sunday to have lunch and hang out with them. Sometimes Erica’s younger sister, who lives an hour away, comes to visit and stays the weekend with us.
Seth’s older brother lives in Virginia with his wife and daughter. Even though it’s tougher to go out and see them, we still try to Skype as often as we can. And we can’t wait to visit so they can meet their niece or nephew. Seth’s parents are so excited to have a grandchild closer to home. They say it will be easier to spoil them. We are eager to take trips with our extended families, like going to Disney or Portugal, where Erica’s parents have a house.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have faced infertility for six years now. At 25 years old, Erica had cervical cancer and, after receiving treatment, was informed she couldn’t conceive a child on her own. We had always talked about adoption even when we were dating, so we knew what the next step was going to be. We both have so much love to give and such a strong desire to be parents, and after much soul searching, we decided we would not give up on our dream.

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
