Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us.
With love and hope,
Steven and Janna
Neither of us were sure what to expect when we took the plunge into the online dating world in 2015, but we were both hopeful love was out there. After a lot of scrolling and awkward dates with potential matches, we just clicked! Two years later, we were married in a beautiful outdoor ceremony. Janna instinctively knows how to make others feel at home. She loves to laugh, tackle craft projects, try new recipes, and have fun. She works as an assistant store manager with a large grocery store chain and is known as a caring team leader. While Steven is quieter, he is always willing to help someone else and is an encouraging support for others. As a retired military veteran, Steven enjoys military history and coin collecting. Together we enjoy fishing, going to baseball games, traveling, movie nights, camping, and working on DIY house projects.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a four-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom, newly renovated home. Our two-acre property includes a pool, pecan trees, and plenty of space for our three dogs—Barker, Buster, and Toby—to run and play. Janna’s parents live near the back of our property in their own home and are excited about the chance to become first-time grandparents. We enjoy living in a small Southern community that offers country living as well as the benefits of good schools and many activities and opportunities. We live only one hour from the nearest beach, putting summer days at the beach within easy reach. Our home is also only two hours from larger cities that offer concerts, museums, and other events that make for fun family day trips.
Our Extended Family
Janna is an only child and has always been very close to her parents and cousins. In reality, her cousins feel more like sisters. She has a large extended family, and we regularly get together with cousins, aunts, and uncles for trips and family reunions. Sometimes our gatherings are as simple as playing cards or a cookout, but we also enjoy family cruises, gathering for fireworks on July 4, and cozy Christmas celebrations. Steven has two adult daughters, two brothers, and several cousins who live in the same state and are never too far away.
We are also surrounded by many friends who are like family, and we spend time together at the beach, going to baseball games, or working on church volunteer projects together. Every year we create an elaborate themed table for our church’s Trunk or Treat event. Janna’s creative side comes out, and Steven helps build what she envisions while Janna stuffs treat bags for all the kids. Janna also enjoys shopping and crafting, so each year we make or purchase thoughtful Christmas gifts for all our friends’ children. We love all the hugs, texts, and pictures we receive from excited kids opening a Christmas surprise!
What Led Us To Adoption
We believe we were meant to meet each other at just the right time. For us, that meant creating a home as an established couple a little later in life. In the same way, we feel expanding our family through adoption is what we are meant to do. Steven has raised twin adult daughters from a previous marriage. Janna always hoped to be a parent but wanted a partner to walk that path with. A close family friend was adopted, and her story has reminded us that family is more than biology; family is love. We can’t wait to create fun family traditions, make memories that always feel like home, and help our future child become the person they are meant to be.

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!
