dear expectant mother
We can’t thank you enough for considering us to raise your child; it is an honor and privilege that you are considering us. We will not pretend to understand what you are going through, but please be assured we think you are brave and selfless. Even contemplating adoption shows how much love you hold in your heart for your child. We want you to know we are there for you as little or as much as you want us to be, before, during and after. You will always be part of our hearts.
Should you choose us, your child will always know unconditional love and support. We plan to raise them to be who they are destined to be and to express themselves freely. Our home is full of love, warmth, and openness. We value kindness and honesty. They will always grow up knowing how much you loved them.
We adopted our son nine years ago, so your child will always be able to walk the path of adoption hand in hand with Wilfred, who will share that bond and connection. We feel this gives us a great understanding as a family to offer you and your child as we walk this amazing journey. Only you know what is best for you and your child, but we would like to think we could be that family for you. We can't wait to start this journey with you and learn about your desires and dreams you have for your child’s future. Your heart will guide you.
Ben and Gemma
We met 12 years ago in Mongolia while traveling. After the trip, Gemma visited Ben, and then he visited Gemma; we married nine months later in the Grand Canyon. Gemma moved from England to Texas to start our life together. Nearly two years into our marriage, our son came to us through adoption, and he is an amazing ray of sunshine in our lives. We are a very adventures family; we love to travel, go on road trips, and are quite the foodies. Gemma is a stay-at-home mom with plenty of time as our son is in school. She likes to cook, grow our own vegetables, do yoga, and crochet. Ben works in the family construction company and loves to listen to music and collect vinyl. The best part of our day is sitting down to a meal at the table and hearing about each other’s day.
Our Home & Pets
We have a beautiful home in the countryside 10 minutes from town. We live on nearly three fenced acres. We have a lovely play area for children and a vegetable patch. Our land is grassed and great for running through, with big, old trees to sit under. Our house has three bedrooms. It is light filled, bright, and warm with love. The kitchen is the heart of the house. Our neighborhood is quiet and friendly, full of other families we are always stopping to chat with on our walks. We have a brand new elementary and middle school two minutes from our house, which is great. We have a 12-year-old dog that is the sweetest guy and adores our son and a sweet cat that is very shy.
Our Extended Family
We both have very supportive families that are so excited to welcome a new child. Gemma’s parents moved from England to live next door to us and be a part of our lives on a daily basis. Ben’s mom and stepdad live 45 minutes away in the countryside, and we visit regularly. Gemma is an only child, and Ben has one brother who lives in New York with his wife and their son.
We are one big blended family with many different cultures that were just meant to be. Family is what you create; our families show that and share so much love between everyone. We lean on each other and laugh with each other. The holidays are just so much fun when everyone gets together, and we can't wait to grow our family and add a little one to the fun.
Our Adoption Story
Adoption holds a special place in our hearts. It has personally touched our lives in both our families. We know firsthand the joy it can bring. We do not take adoption for granted and feel extremely lucky to have been honored with the title of being our son’s parents. We cannot think of a more special way to grow our family than through adoption. We are so excited at the opportunity to adopt and for our son to be a sibling. We have so much love to give and memories to create.

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
