Thank you for considering us to be the proud parents of your baby. We would like you to know that we admire your choice of creating an adoption plan and are forever grateful for your selflessness and courage. We always felt extremely open to adoption and pursuing a family that way came instinctively to us. We were blessed when we adopted our son, Mac, in 2014. We now long for another child to love and grow our family!
A new child will add so much to our lives; more laughter, love, personality and a lifetime of new memories. We will raise your baby with encouragement, adventure, honesty, creativity, and lots of love. We will build up their self-esteem, support their dreams and love them unconditionally. They will be embraced into our family where they will be adored by us and a loving big brother. We are incredibly hopeful and endlessly excited about welcoming a beautiful new baby into our lives.
We are Jay and Edith! We met through a friend in college and immediately hit it off. Edith is outgoing, kind, and always up for an adventure or a good donut. Jay is hard-working, honest, and a sports fanatic. We were married in 2010 and adopted our son, Mac, in 2014. Mac is such a loving, fun, silly boy. He is full of personality and endless amounts of energy. We own and operate a small business from our home and have grown that business for the last five years. Working from home has allowed us to spend more time together as a family. During the week you will find us in the kitchen making homemade pizzas, headed to the ball park to watch Dad play softball, or taking a quick trip to Smoothie King (Mac’s favorite). Some of our favorite traditions include Cardinals opening day, visits with the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus, watching the Homecoming parade, movie night with chocolate milk and popcorn and tailgates with friends. We have always loved to travel and experience new cultures and countries. Our trips together are always an adventure. It is truly amazing to see Mac’s face light up with excitement when he experiences new things. We look forward to sharing these simple, yet beautiful, joys in life as our family grows.
Our Home & Pets
We recently moved back to Jays hometown to be closer to friends and family. We built a spacious two story house in a beautiful, quiet, family friendly neighborhood. You will often find kids playing together outside or families hanging out at the neighborhood pool. Our home has 5 bedrooms 3 baths with an open floor plan, a large basement and a three car garage. We enjoy spending family time outside relaxing on our deck or chasing our dogs around our large backyard. It is a diverse community that has many schools that are recognized for high academic standards. We are surrounded by parks, trails, playgrounds and plenty of family activities. We enjoy going to the 4th of July parade, making our way through the corn maze in the fall, Family Fun Fest in the Summer and all the Homecoming Festivities.
Our Extended Family
We are very lucky to have such a supportive, loving and encouraging family; full of grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. Our families were over the moon when our son was born and absolutely cannot wait for another child to spoil! Family is everything to us and both sides of our family really value time shared together. We celebrate birthdays, gather for trips, meet for play dates, get together for family dinners and make a special day out of holiday get-togethers. You will often find Mac on the phone with his grandparents or video chatting with cousins. Edith was born and raised in Seattle where her parents, brother and sister still live. Even though we have to travel to see them, we get to spend long amounts of quality time with everyone. Edith's sister and her husband have three daughters. We have fun heading to the beach, walking around the Pike Place Market, checking out the Science Center or eating donuts with Grandpa. Jay’s parents and sister live nearby. Jay's sister and her husband have a daughter and two sons. Our get-togethers are filled with fun, laughter, chasing the kiddos around and home cooked meals. Our favorite times together are spent at our lake house. The kids love taking a ride on Papa’s boat, swimming in the lake and making s’mores. Our families are our biggest support system and there is a whole lot of love to go around.
Our Adoption Story
For Edith’s birthday, we decided to head to Las Vegas. Little did we know that we would be getting the call of a lifetime. As we were waiting to get off the plane, I hear Jay yell from a few rows up “the adoption agency called!” We immediately called them back and were told that we had a match! There we were standing in the MGM Grand going over all the details with our agency. We had our initial call with Mac’s birth parents and our relationship began to form. We exchanged calls and texts weekly. We all decided to meet before Mac was born. We flew to Pennsylvania and met Mac’s birth parents for dinner. We were excited, anxious and nervous. We could only hope that we would be everything they wanted for their baby. They told us all the reasons why they chose us and what type of relationship they wanted not only with their baby but with us as well. We were lucky to be able to be in the room when Mac was born. We have formed a wonderful relationship with Mac’s birth parents that continues to grow. We keep in contact with them through texts, phone calls, letters, pictures and through social media. At first we were unsure of how open we wanted our adoption to be, but the more we learned about the process, the more we became comfortable with the relationship we had and continue to build with Mac’s birth parents. It is our hope that we will be able to have the same experience and relationship with our next child's birth parents.

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
