dear expectant mother
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us and considering our family! We believe God laid the desire to adopt on our hearts after years of not being able to get pregnant on our own and a miscarriage. It is hard to explain the great love and excitement we already feel for a child and mother we have not met. We can only imagine this has to be a confusing and difficult time for you while trying to figure out the best option for you and your sweet baby. We hope you feel supported and loved no matter where you are in your journey. We admire you so much for considering adoption.
If you decide to make an adoption plan with us, we want to assure you that we will respect any level of openness and contact you want to have with your child. We also promise to love and cherish your child with all of our hearts and to provide an educated, well-traveled, safe, happy home and life with every opportunity possible.
Please know we are praying for you and your precious baby throughout your pregnancy that God fills you with comfort and peace in whatever decision you make.
We both work four days/week and are fulfilled by our careers, but when the weekend comes, we take lots of time to enjoy the outdoors, sporting events, new restaurants, friends, documentaries, and travel as much as possible. Our jobs are very rewarding for us. Nathan works to keep the country safe by providing aviation products to pilots for various military missions. Holly works to help clients, patients, and staff by managing a growing veterinary hospital. Although she went to school to be an elementary teacher, she quickly found that working with animals was her true calling. We are positive people. We love to laugh and make each other laugh. We surround ourselves with friends who support our “good vibes only” attitude. In the end, it doesn’t matter what we do or where we go as long as we’re together.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a rural, gated community with three lakes. Our home is warm and inviting to all. We take pride in renovating and landscaping to keep our home enjoyable. Part of making our home enjoyable is our three dogs: Bentley (10) and Caroline (6), both Yorkies, and the Great Dane, Declan (1)! Our neighborhood offers a playground for the residents as well as seasonal activities, such as trunk-or-treat and visits from Santa. Our small town of 6,400 residents also offers lots of family events for every season. The schools include a childhood center, a preschool, two elementary schools, a junior high school, and a senior high school. We personally know several employees of the district and feel comfortable with the policies and curriculum.
Our Extended Family
Nathan has cousins in Germany, Seattle, California, and Ohio. Since Nathan's family is so spread out, our main form of communication is email or phone. We do try to plan trips every few years to catch up in person.
Holly has one younger brother and nine cousins, most with their own children, who still live in her home state, Tennessee. Holly’s family gets together several times a month for various occasions, especially karaoke shows put on by her dad. Her mom’s side of the family takes a trip together once a year and stays together; that’s 15 people in one house for an extended weekend! They have events for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve that have been going since before she was born. Each year our two nieces and nephew come spend a week with us, and we take them to local kid-friendly places like the zoo, magic house, and parks. That time is so special for us to bond with them and make memories.
What Led Us To Adoption
After years of not being able to get pregnant on our own, one miscarriage, going through IVF (up to the point of implantation), and a lot of prayer, we decided to embrace adoption. Our goal wasn’t to experience pregnancy specifically but to become parents; IVF couldn't guarantee the outcome we want so much. We personally know several adoptive parents within our community and also have one close friend who was adopted as a child. Each of these acquaintances have reached out since learning of our journey to offer support and validate our capabilities as future adoptive parents. Plus, we have seen how this option is a positive way to grow our 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
