Thank you for being so heroic in considering the adoption process. We know it is a very difficult decision to make, but please know we admire you so much for considering the chance of sharing a baby with a couple who so desperately want to parent.
Though our attempts to conceive on our own didn’t work out, we knew that pursuing other fertility options weren’t in the plans for us. We want to adopt for all the right reasons and we hope you will understand and see this. Our hearts are full of love, and we wish to share this love if we are chosen as adoptive parents.
Thank you for considering us as the family for your baby. We hope you will choose our family to love your child. You can be assured with us; the sky is the limit for your child! He or she will be given a wonderful education and financial security. Your child will be surrounded by loving friends and family and always encouraged to be true to themselves. We will also make sure your child knows of your incredible love for him or her and the enormous strength that led you to your decision.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you as make this important decision. We would be honored to talk or meet with you.
When we met, we knew soon after this was going to be something special. We complement each other so well and within a year of meeting, we were engaged and married! We are a laid-back couple who thoroughly enjoy spending time together and with our families. We love to go to the beach and travel to new and exciting places, but are just as content at home, watching TV or reading. We are glad to be at this juncture in our lives where we have found each other and have always wanted a family that included children.
Jason is currently an engineer at a large company and he thoroughly enjoys his job. He is also a retired Marine after four deployments and six years. Amelia was a school teacher for thirteen years, but has taken this year off to organize our move to a bigger home and, hopefully, adopt a child. Amelia has always worked with children, starting when she was still only in high school. If able to adopt, she will take time off to be a stay-at-home mom until he or she is of school age.
Our Home & Pets
We have two dogs; a small Yorkie named Gizmo, a funny little dog who enjoys running and playing in the yard, and a black Lab mix named Gemma, who we rescued and is a very sweet dog who loves chasing sticks and visiting the pond. We love them so much and they are loving their larger yard at our new house! We recently moved and are very glad to now live in a charming small town. In fact, our county only has one stop light! However, it’s still very convenient to other areas that are larger. Our neighborhood is small, with very few houses and duplexes on our cul-de-sac. We love our secluded and safe neighborhood, though we have a thorough security system, just in case. Our home is about 5,000 square feet, complete with an in-law suit downstairs that is currently being remodeled. We have a pool in our backyard (surrounded by a fence with gates for safety) and close access to a two-acre pond! We live on approximately 5 acres, and our closest neighbor is approximately fifty yards away. We also have a brand-new fence for the dogs and our nieces and nephews to be able to play outside.
Our Extended Family
Jason’s family is originally from out of state, but they have since relocated to our state. He has one brother, one sister, three nieces, and one nephew. We also live very close to Amelia’s side of the family – her parents live within three miles of us currently! She has one brother and two nieces. She also has two cousins who were raised alongside her like siblings. One of them, Jill, now has three sons, one of whom was adopted, and two daughters who were adopted. The other, Jamie, has two sons. Her aunt and uncle also live close by.
We are both also fortunate to come from large and loving extended families. Holidays are so much more fun! We all take turns with St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, birthdays, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s. It’s nice to have so many family members nearby because it allows for frequent visits!
What Led Us To Adoption
We have both always wanted children and it was a conversation we had early in the relationship. From the beginning, we discussed adoption as a possible option. We originally tried to conceive naturally but, due to certain health circumstances, were unable to do so. Rather than try IVF or surrogacy, we both knew in our hearts it was better for us to adopt. Amelia has worked throughout her teaching career with adoptive and foster care students and it was an impactful experience. Additionally, there are three children who were adopted in our extended family, and they have been great joys in our lives. We want to have that same wonderful experience and knew adoption was the best fit for us.

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
