dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for taking the time to consider us as parents as you navigate what must be an overwhelming decision. We know you are doing your best to give your baby the best possible future, and we would consider it a privilege to be chosen as your child’s parents.
Above all, we promise you that your baby will be safe, happy, and loved. We will provide your child with every opportunity possible and will support their hopes and dreams. We will encourage their creativity and imagination with books, outdoor exploration, and travel around the world. We will provide them with education and financial stability while they learn and grow. Their life will be full of joy, laughter, play, and fun. We will strive to build memories to last a lifetime with a diverse range of experiences. While words can only convey so much, we hope you can see the joyful life we have built together and that you can picture your child becoming the center of our family.
It would be the greatest honor of our lives to be chosen as your child’s parents. We promise to forever love and cherish your child with every fiber of our being from the moment you choose us. We will ensure that they always know how immensely grateful we are for you, their birthmother.
With love always,
Andy & Erin
Hi! We’re Erin and Andy, and we live in Georgia. We’re both from small, rural towns in beautiful Southwest Virginia. We met in 2012 during a college research lab, and we married in 2015. Education is a priority in our relationship, as evidenced by the five degrees we have collectively earned since we met. Erin is an attorney who loves horseback riding, listening to music, taking care of her many plants, and volunteering with 4-H. Andy is an advance care planning specialist who enjoys fishing, yardwork, cooking, and playing video games. We spend time together by taking daily walks with our dogs, rewatching old TV shows, being outside, and traveling to new places. We are a down-to-earth couple who delights in quality time with our friends and loved ones and making memories.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a two-story home in the cul-de-sac of a quiet suburban neighborhood where many of the community’s young children gather daily to play. The families around us are continuing to grow. We have a beautiful, private backyard that backs up to a paved nature trail where we love to take walks with our sweet dogs, Tonks and Sprout. They love the neighborhood kids! We are within walking distance of an elementary school in a school district that tops the state in all subjects. Our town has active community sports programs and many parks and recreational offerings. Erin also has a horse, Blueberry, that she hopes to one day share with a child.
Our Extended Family
Andy has a very close immediate family made up of his parents, two brothers, a sister, and our niece. We gather often at his parents’ lakehouse to enjoy time together on the boat, eat lots of good food, and play games. Our niece is the light of his parents’ lives, and they are thrilled to welcome another grandchild to the family. Andy’s family’s traditions include camping for the Fourth of July and Christmas morning breakfast. Andy also has a large extended family.
While Erin was not raised by her parents or with her sister, she is now very close to each of them. Erin’s mom lives 20 minutes from us, and she is so excited to be promoted from dog sitter to grandmother. Erin and her father have always bonded over sports and have continued her late grandmother’s tradition of Christmas Eve pizza nights. Erin and her sister share a love of animals and Disney. Erin also has a very special relationship with her great-aunt. While her biological family is small, Erin was raised to understand that our closest friends are our family, and we live by that motto to this day.
What Led Us To Adoption
Erin’s parents divorced when she was five and were unable to raise her, so she was raised by her grandmother. Realizing that her grandmother had stepped in as the parent her parents were unable to be at the time, Erin has thought about adoption since she was in high school. After we were married, we tried for several years without success to have biological children, and we just knew adoption was the best path to parenthood for us. We are so thankful to have a stable and loving relationship and a supportive network of family and friends, and we can’t wait to share our lives with a 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
