dear expectant mother
Strength, courage, and selflessness—those are the three qualities that come to mind when we think of you. We would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to read our story. As you embark on this journey, know we will be there every step of the way.
If you choose us to be the adoptive parents of your baby, please know you are giving us a dream come true, and we will forever be grateful for your brave decision. As hopeful adoptive parents, we will provide a loving and safe home for your baby. We will raise your child to have respect and show kindness. We will always put their needs above our own. We will be open and honest with them about their story and the sacrifices you made for them.
Our family has been touched personally by adoption, and we have witnessed firsthand how beautiful it truly is. We want you to know we will respect your wishes during this entire process. Gaining your trust is one of our top priorities. This path was laid in front of us for a reason, so let’s explore this journey together.
We look forward to meeting you and your little bundle of joy!
Our story began in 2005. We were two young kids who did not know what the future held. Little did we know we would end up falling head over heels in love. We got engaged in 2012, and then, surrounded by our family and friends, we tied the knot in 2014. Jared is very loving, kind, and smart. He works as a dry end operator at a paper plant. In his spare time, he enjoys fishing, watching sports, and golfing. Chasteen is caring, funny, and an overall loving person. She works as a surgical scheduler at the local hospital. She loves traveling, spending time with friends and family, and crafting. We are an adventurous couple. We love camping, theme parks, and just spending quality time with each other.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a quiet neighborhood. Our home is a beautiful three-bedroom, 2 ½-bath house that sits at the end of our street on a cul-de-sac. We have a fenced-in back yard, which we love to entertain in. We have an open floor plan with plenty of room for running, playing hide-and-seek, and building forts. Our home is located near our local schools. We have a two-year-old yellow Labrador, Abby. She is full of personality and loves children.
Our Extended Family
Our family is filled with lots of love and laughter; there is never a dull moment. Jared comes from a small and close-knit family, while Chasteen comes from a bigger family. Family traditions are very important to us. We love our annual family lake trip with Jared’s family, and we look forward to it every year.
Both of our families love to celebrate Christmas. We all get together to bake Christmas cookies, watch movies, and play games. Chasteen’s family gets together every summer for a family cookout. There’s nothing like celebrating the summer with food, family, and waterslides. We are beyond blessed to have the love and support of our family. They stand behind us fully with this decision and could not be happier to gain a new addition to the family.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always wanted a family. It was something we have talked about since our marriage began. After three years with no success, we reached out to a fertility specialist; Chasteen was diagnosed with unexplained infertility. We went down the long road of procedures and medications then a failed cycle of IVF. Adoption has always been close to our hearts as Jared's father was adopted when he was an infant. We knew deep down in our hearts this was the path we were meant to take. Adoption is such a beautiful thing, and we can't wait to start a family with this journey.

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
