dear expectant mother
There are so many things that we’d like to tell you…. We’d like to start by acknowledging your incredible courage and strength. We also want you to know that even though we have not met yet, we have been praying for you and your child and for the health of you both. Our hope for you, specifically, is that you are feeling loved and at peace with your decision.
C.S. Lewis said, “Love is unselfishly choosing for another’s highest good.” We feel this is at the core of your decision. Although we have not been in your shoes and cannot say we know how you’re feeling, we recognize and understand how difficult and momentous this decision is. It’s hard to actually put into words how brave you are. Your strength is admirable. You are showing your baby the highest level of unconditional love.
We feel so blessed and grateful that you would consider us. We want you to know we would love nothing more than to provide your child with a stable family and a home full of unconditional love. We are open to and would love to have a relationship with you throughout your child’s life, if that’s something you’re interested in. We are excited to share with them about you and your unconditional love for them with this selfless act. Thank you for considering us.

We met online in 2010 and quickly became best friends. We got married in 2011 and had our daughter, Tenley, in 2013. Tenley has a sweet and silly personality and can’t wait to be a big sister! Jason is a diesel technician and works at a local farm equipment dealership. He is an outgoing, hardworking man who would do anything for our family. Tara works in the cafeteria at the elementary school in town. She is kind hearted, and her faith provides her with wisdom to help the family navigate through life. We just enjoy doing life together. We love to go on family vacations and enjoy making memories across the country. Our favorite activities to do as a family include spending time with our extended family, cheering on our daughter at her soccer and basketball games, swimming and fishing, and sitting around a campfire with family and friends.
Our Home & Pets
We built our home in the country in 2018. Our dog, Walker, especially enjoys all the space he has to run on our wooded property. Small-town living is everything we always wanted. We both grew up in a small town and moved back to Tara’s hometown in 2018 to be closer to family. We wanted our daughter to start kindergarten at a smaller, outstanding school. She attends the same elementary school Tara attended, which is also where Tara works now. We love supporting and cheering on our local high school athletes at various sporting events as well as attending town festivals and parades.
Our Extended Family
We have always felt so blessed to have such loving and supportive families. Family time is something we have always valued. Getting together for birthdays and holidays, regular Sunday dinners, and even going on weekend getaways or family vacations are just some of what we do with our extended families.
Jason’s parents live a couple hours away but regularly travel up to see us and his sister’s family, who live less than 30 miles away. Jason’s parents could be described as still being kids at heart. They are always up for anything fun or an adventure. Jason’s sister and her husband have two sons. We love spending time with our silly nephews. When we all get together, it’s guaranteed that there will be lots of fun, activities, and silliness.
Tara’s parents live only minutes away. They still live in the house she grew up in. They are always there to offer us guidance and support. Tara’s two brothers and their wives live locally as well, and we are very close with them. One of her brothers and his wife just had their second baby girl. We adore our sweet nieces. Anytime we get together, there are bound to be endless laughs.
What Led Us To Adoption
Adoption is something we have always talked about, even before we were married. We have always desired a larger family. After our daughter turned two, we began to try for a second child, and we just never got pregnant again. As hard as that has been, we believe we have been led to this point in our lives for such a time as this! We believe adoption is a miracle and a beautiful display of selfless love. This spring, around the same time Jason was baptized at our church, we really felt God nudging us toward adoption. We are so excited for this opportunity, and we cannot wait to open our home to a new baby to love on.

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!
