dear expectant mother
We first want to express how much we admire your courage for considering this path. We know it is the most difficult thing you have ever had to consider, and we can’t imagine what tremendous strength that takes. We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to get to know us and considering us to be the ones to raise your baby.
We truly believe there is a little soul out there waiting to be added to our family. We have been through six years of infertility and trust we were meant to go through the hard stuff to grow from it. We know we were meant to be here and are meant to adopt. We hold so much love in our hearts for you because by considering this selfless decision, you would be giving us a gift we have been unable to give ourselves. We plan to be open with your child about their adoption journey from the beginning and will always make sure your baby knows what an amazing, selfless decision you made.
As we have mentioned, the most important thing to us is living an authentic life. Your child will always be heard, loved, and appreciated for exactly who they are. Their strengths and passions will always be nurtured so they can live a fulfilled life. We love the life we have built for ourselves and are overjoyed at the prospect of sharing it with you and your baby.
We are Kayla and Jarrett. We were high school sweethearts, went to college together, and married in 2014. The most important thing to us is authenticity. It is very important that each of us live as their authentic selves while nurturing each other’s strengths and passions. For Kayla, it is living creatively and with purpose. She loves her job working with kids with disabilities and is outgoing and kind-hearted. Jarrett is an occupational health and safety professional who enjoys science, woodworking, and the outdoors. He is hard-working, honest, and laidback. We cherish the little things in life, like cooking dinner together, tending to our garden, spending time with our family, and taking our dogs on adventures. We are looking forward to sharing these simple joys as our family grows.
Our Home & Pets
We live at the end of a quiet, family-friendly cul-de-sac in Pennsylvania, surrounded by young families. We live in a three-bedroom home with a fenced-in backyard. We spend most of our time outdoors with our dogs. We dedicate time to training our dogs to be well-behaved and take them with us to many places. We love to walk them on a local trail where we can walk down to the water so they can swim and play. We live within 30 minutes of the majority of our family and usually spend time with them on a weekly basis. Your baby will grow up surrounded by a large family with so much love to give.
Our Extended Family
Kayla has two younger brothers, and Jarrett has two younger brothers and one sister. Together we have one nephew and two nieces, whom we are very close to. Jarrett’s brother and his wife recently moved back home from Texas so their children could grow up around family. When we told our families we were adopting, everyone was beyond thrilled for us, and they have been very supportive of us during this process.
Our families have developed several traditions over the years. We spend a week at the lake with Kayla’s family every summer and spend many weekends at our camp in northern Pennsylvania. We also spend the week of Thanksgiving visiting Jarrett’s aunt and uncle in West Virginia and love to explore many unique little towns in the area while we are visiting.
Every year at Christmas we have a gingerbread house competition with Kayla’s family that has become one of our favorite family traditions, and everyone comically takes it very seriously. This night, like much of our lives, is filled with so much joy, laughter, and love we are so excited to share with your baby.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have been on a long road trying to expand our family and have often felt adoption was right for us. We believe this is the right time to pursue this journey. When we first made the decision to adopt, we felt unbelievably grounded because this decision felt so right. We truly believe there are people out there who are meant to be connected to us, and we are very open and excited to see what that is meant to look like. Our immediate and extended families are very tight knit, and all of our siblings are married. Each person who has joined our family feels like they were meant to be there all along. We are firm believers that family is not born but found.

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
