Dear Birthmom

Where do we begin? What an incredible act of love you’ve chosen. This selfless act of love takes courage and strength and we admire what you’ve decided for your baby. We cannot feel what you’re feeling, but just know that we are here, supporting you and your decision. Adoption is emotional and we recognize that what you are facing must be difficult. Whatever the circumstance in your life is, please know; we only want the best for you and your baby. You are in our prayers and we want you to know that we think so highly of you. We love your child already and are prepared to shower him or her with tender love and care. Our goal is to provide the best environment for your baby to become all that he or she can be. We are also praying for your baby, that he or she would be healthy and happy, and have an incredible life, full of joy. We are committed to giving our best to your baby. We know that your child will be a blessing to us and we take that very seriously. You and your baby deserve the best chance at life and that is what we hope and pray for you both.

About Us

We were happily married in 2015. Our Christian faith is very important to us and we enjoy spending time serving people in church, attending services, and connecting with other members of our church. Funny movies, cooking, exercise, hiking, swimming, traveling, and spending time with family, including our 2 little doggies, are some of our favorite pastimes. We both lived in Hawaii for several years until meeting each other, and have brought the Aloha spirit back with us to the mainland. We are very laid back and easygoing people who recognize all of the blessings life offers. Jay works at a day center with those who struggle with developmental disabilities and is such a light there. Sara is a part-time substitute pre-school and kindergarten teacher and loves her job. She also recently started working as a Human Resources Specialist at a local home care agency.

Our Home & Pets

We moved into our new home in early 2017. It is in a beautiful and peaceful neighborhood. The neighbors are very kind and we are enjoying getting to know them. There is an in-ground pool as well as a big back yard, where the dogs like to run around. The dogs are both playful, happy, Chihuahuas. Major stores, medical centers, and entertainment are very close by. We feel very safe and comfortable here and have plenty of room for kids to run and play!

Our Extended Family

We have a big, loving family and communicate with everyone as much as possible, including spending holidays together and traveling to see everyone. Jay has two adult children who have moved out and have been very successful in college and work. His oldest child has been married to his wife for nearly three years. His daughter is still in college and has studied abroad and excels in music. We have a great relationship with them. Jay’s parents have been married for over fifty years and are sweet, caring individuals. Sara’s parents have been married for over twenty years and are very generous and funny. Jay has a brother and sister who are both married and each have 3 kids. His sister’s kids are still young and all school- age. Sara has two brothers, one with two young girls. Jay and Sara love family time- games, celebrations, holidays, dancing, and traveling.

What Led Us To Adoption

Adoption is something we have each wanted, individually, for as long as we can remember and we knew we would adopt together once we got married. We have a strong calling on our hearts to adopt and a lot of love to give. We have been on a mission trip together in Cambodia, worked with small children and volunteer in children’s ministry. We both absolutely love children and strive to be great influences and role models. At family events or gatherings, we’re the ones who end up on the floor playing with the kids. Since we do not have any children together, we are excited to start growing a family through adoption.

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!
