Thank you for taking the time to learn about us. As we are writing this letter, our hearts are pounding because of the excitement of starting a family and the emotions we have gone through these years on our journey. We are also thinking about the wide range of emotions you must be feeling. We pray that God will guide you in this decision, and that if and when you meet us, we can show you how much we care. We also want you to know how much we respect you and how much we understand the difficult decision you are making.
If you choose us as adoptive parents, both of us hope to teach your baby to enjoy outdoor activities, sports, and animals. Heather looks forward to teaching your baby about her favorite sport, soccer, and science. Jeff looks forward to teaching your child about the sport passed down in his family, baseball, and also how to read.
We want you to know that, if you choose us, we will raise your baby to know that he or she is loved unconditionally. We promise to give your baby the emotional support and moral guidance he or she will need to one day be a good and decent person. We will raise your baby allowing him or her to follow his or her dreams. We want to encourage your child to be the best version of him- or herself, whatever the future may hold. We will always listen, be willing to learn, and give love.
We are very active and conscientious people that value, above all else, family. Heather has her own insurance and finance business, while Jeff works as a lawyer. After years of hard work and a little bit of luck, our careers provide us with flexible schedules and financial stability. We have agreed that adoption will be our next step in growing our family.
We met ten years ago and right away knew we were meant for each other. We enjoy outdoor activities like hiking and skiing, but we also enjoy going to the movies and museums. More than anything, we enjoy spending time with our two young nieces and our two large dogs, who provide a never-ending source of entertainment. We enjoy traveling three to four times a year. We are big sports fans. In the summer, we go to lots of baseball games with friends and family. During the winter months, we’re cheering on our favorite hockey team.
Our Home & Pets
We picked our home from a number of options because it is close to a lot of outdoor activities and family. We are steps from a park, a short drive from beautiful hiking, and almost within sight of Jeff’s favorite activity—golf. We built our home large enough to have children shortly after getting married, but the children have not yet come. We wanted our home to be a special place that nobody else had called home. There aren’t a lot of quiet or boring moments at our house because there’s usually something happening, be it friends coming by to visit with their kids or relatives visiting. Everyone loves our two dogs, silly Goldendoodles, who are extremely loving and playful and give lots of slobbery kisses.
Our Extended Family
Heather has a very large family, full of aunts and uncles, and so also lots of cousins. Heather’s parents live nearby, as does her sister Amy with her husband Jim. Amy and Jim have two young daughters that are regularly at our house playing in our yard with our dogs. Family get-togethers for Heather’s family always need to be held somewhere that can hold a lot of people because 100 often show up! Heather’s family enjoys getting together for cookouts during the summer and Sunday dinners as often as possible. Our holidays are very busy. Family is the number one priority.
Jeff’s family is smaller. His father has one sister who has two sons, and his mother has a brother and a sister who each have children younger than Jeff. Jeff’s cousins live close
to us and Jeff’s brothers and their wives live within 45 minutes. We have many family traditions. On Christmas Eve, the family plays a late game of trivial pursuit. It brings out the competitive nature in us. The day after Christmas, we all go skiing for a week. You can also find us together at many baseball games in the summer. We love baseball!
What Led Us To Adoption
We were married seven years ago and wanted immediately to start a family. We started our fertility journey with IVF treatments when we discovered that having a child on our own would be difficult. After multiple attempts, we had two miscarriages. We discussed adoption throughout the process. As our journey progressed, it became clear that adoption was the right path for us. We began meeting with adoption agencies because we knew we needed to find the right fit. After meeting with Angel Adoption, our minds were at ease. We felt at peace knowing they would help us achieve our dream of growing a family.

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
