dear expectant mother
Every child is a miracle and is precious and loved unconditionally in God’s eyes. You are making the tough decision to bring your child into this world despite the challenging circumstances you are facing. We are so proud of you and extremely honored and humbled that you would consider us to love, protect, and raise your precious child. We have prayed every night, as have our families, that we would be blessed with the miracle of a child, and through your selfless and loving decision, we may have that opportunity. We are so grateful for you.
If you choose us, your child will be surrounded with love and security and know how much they are loved not only by us but also by you. Their childhood will be filled with those carefree days of making friends, playing outside, and having fun. They will grow up in a supportive environment that embraces who they are and where they have come from. They will learn what it is to be a person of honesty and integrity that will equip them for the challenges we all face as we grow into adults. We will be there to support them through all of life’s ups and downs.
Please know you are loved and appreciated by us and that whatever decision you make, we pray for God’s blessing on you and your child.
Hello! We are Garrett and Erin from beautiful Washington state. We live on the drier side of the state surrounded by mountains, rivers, and agriculture. We love spending time outside in nature or cozy inside with a movie or game. We enjoy cooking together and eating fresh food and trying new recipes. Erin is patient, kind, and loving with a knack for playing fun practical jokes on her loved ones. Garrett is easygoing but hardworking with a sense of humor that rubs off on everyone he is around. We met through Erin’s church of which Garrett’s dad became a pastor. After 11 months of dating we became engaged and were married in August of 2009. We are true soulmates because we always know what the other is thinking and feeling. Our love is always growing and continues to blossom more fully with each passing year. We support each other fully in every way.
Our Home & Pets
We are blessed to have two homes in towns that are about an hour and a half apart. This allows us to see family regularly two to three weekends a month as well as holidays and is so important to us. Our primary home is a three-bedroom, three-bathroom house in a quiet neighborhood in a small town nestled against the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. Our secondary home is a two-bedroom, one-bathroom house that is near both of our families and is in a friendly, tight-knit, historic neighborhood of a larger town. We have two whippets, named Rosie and Annika, and one Italian greyhound named Bristow. They love to travel back and forth with us and go on walks in both towns.
Our Extended Family
Family is incredibly important to us, and we are blessed to have our second home in the nearby town where they all reside. Many weekends are spent gathering family together for fun, food, and games. Our parents are so supportive and full of love. Both of our families regularly get together for special occasions and birthdays. We are both the eldest of our families with Garrett having a brother and sister and Erin a sister.
Holidays are full of traditions and laughter for us. We love to deck out the house and costume up for Halloween parties. We are blessed to have two Thanksgiving meals. We spend Christmas morning exchanging gifts with Erin’s family and then head up to Garrett’s family’s house later that day for Christmas dinner and more gift exchanging. For Easter, both families come up to our primary home, where we celebrate with church, good food, and games. Every year we spend some vacation time traveling with both sides of the family. Our favorite trips are going to Disneyland and the beach.
What Led Us To Adoption
We are so excited about the opportunity to adopt. Our journey to have a child has been tough, but those experiences have strengthened our relationship through supporting one another. It has also strengthened each of us emotionally and mentally. A close family friend was blessed with the adoption of their daughter 16 years ago. Seeing the love and joy that has brought not only them but their daughter is something that resonates deeply with us and inspires us to adopt. Our home is full of love, support, and understanding. We are overjoyed and humbled at the thought of sharing this with a child 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!
