dear expectant mother
Thank you for considering us to be the proud parents of your baby and for being brave enough to make a difficult decision. We are blessed by the selflessness of your choice and are excited to start our family. Haley’s biological grandmother always talked about how difficult it was to choose adoption, so we have some knowledge about how difficult of a choice this is. We are grateful for the gift of growing our family through adoption.
Our families have always been incredibly supportive of us, and we would not be where we are without their support and love. We are excited to show this same love and support to a child. Our desire is to give your child the opportunities necessary to achieve anything they desire. We will provide a safe and secure environment in which your child can thrive. We are both hard workers and goal oriented, and we want to teach those same values to a child. With these guiding principles and a foundation of love, we believe a child has unlimited potential. We will dedicate ourselves to unconditionally loving and providing endless support and encouragement so your child can flourish.
A new child will add laughter, love, and new experiences to our family. We are excited about taking your child on trips with us to learn about and explore the world. We look forward to making memories together and making your child a part of our loving family.
We are Haley and Glen. We dated long distance for about two years when Haley lived in Florida and Glen lived in Georgia. We got married in 2013 and moved to the Pacific Northwest when Haley did an internship to complete her Ph.D. in clinical psychology. She is a forensic psychologist who completes court-ordered evaluations. Haley is hard-working, family-focused, and passionate. She is a sports enthusiast and loves spending time with friends. Glen is a prosthetist/orthotist and works with military veterans. He is smart and mechanically inclined and can fix anything. He has completely rebuilt a 1977 Datsun from the ground up and is currently rebuilding a 1982 Land Cruiser. We like to go hiking or for walks, and we spend a lot of time with family and friends. We love to travel and experience the world. We can’t wait to include a child in these adventures.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a house with four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a big, fully fenced back yard. There is a big living room on the main floor and a playroom in the daylight basement downstairs, so there is a lot of room for a child to play! Our house is on a quiet street near an elementary school. We live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. The Puget Sound is nearby, and we enjoy going to the waterfront and walking around. We have gotten pretty good at finding seals and other wildlife in the sound. We like to hike in the nearby mountains and try to spend time in nature. We also have three dogs, a cat, and a 150-gallon saltwater fish tank.
Our Extended Family
We are both very close with our families, who have been supportive throughout the adoption process. Haley grew up in Texas with a brother who is almost three years younger. The family was very close and did most things together when Haley and her brother were children. Haley and her brother are especially close now. He has two sons, an infant and a toddler, and Haley loves spending time with her nephews. Haley's family loves baseball and goes to games together as often as possible. We cannot wait to teach a child about baseball and our love for the game. We go on family vacations with Haley's family about once per year. We spent last Thanksgiving in Phoenix, and we often travel together to watch the Astros play.
Glen grew up in Oregon with his sister, who is 18 months older than him. His parents are retired and visit Haley and Glen often. Glen's dad taught him his love and affinity for all things mechanical, and they spend a lot of time together working on cars or various home projects. His mom is a great cook and loves spending time in the kitchen, making food for others and helping other people learn to cook.
Our Adoption Story
Haley’s mom was adopted. Growing up, Haley was very close to her adoptive grandmother and her family. The relationship with her grandmother was one of the most important in her life. When Haley was 15 years old, her mom reconnected with her biological family. Since that time, Haley has gotten to know her biological family and has been fascinated with seeing how she has been shaped by both of these families. We have always considered adoption as a way to grow our family and provide a loving home for 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
