dear expectant mother
We know you are going through a lot of emotions right now. And we know we might never fully understand what you’re going through. But we will try our best. Your courage and selflessness to consider us as the family to raise your baby are very admirable. We know it comes from a place of pure love. It is important to us that you know if you choose us, how loved and cherished your child will be. Becoming adoptive parents to your child would be our dream come true.
A beautiful life can be defined in many ways, but to us, it means raising a child with love, kindness, respect, and integrity. We will lead by example as we spend much of our time giving back to people and animals in need. To us, compassion for others is a very important foundation upon which to raise a child. There will also be a lot of time for fun adventures as Christine is going to be a stay at home Mom. We already carry love in our hearts for the child that we will adopt. No matter what type of relationship you would like to have, if you choose us, your child will grow up knowing the incredible gift of life you have chosen for them. We love this quote: “Not of my flesh, Nor bone of my bone. But still miraculously my own. Never forget for a single minute you did not grow under my heart. But in it. “ We would be honored to be the adoptive parents of your child.
We met one day at a beach on a lake by Jeff’s house. We were both out with our dogs (as we often are) when fate struck. Jeff asked if the dogs could say “Hello” and everyone just hit it off. The five of us have been sharing adventures ever since. We are a very outdoor-oriented family.
Our jobs keep us busy. Christine is an office manager for a dentist and she volunteers with several dog rescue groups. Jeff is a railroad conductor. We are often planning our next adventure while in the middle of a current adventure. Christine is the loving and doting one in the family. Jeff is the joker in the family. He will definitely keep things fun. He has a heart of gold.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a private lake community a stone throw away from a very large lake. In the summer you will find us swimming, paddling kayaks, jumping off the many rope swings, and exploring the little islands and beaches. We also enjoy the many hiking trails and mountains nearby, which we frequent often.
We have plenty of room, time, and love in our hearts for an active baby and a curious mind to grow. We live in a very good school district. Our three dogs love children. Clark the Shark is our Black German Shepherd. Booker is our Brindle-Boxer mix. Bali, our little Brindle girl, is as sweet as they come.
Our Extended Family
Jeff has two older brothers and a younger sister who are all married with children, as well as many cousins that are still very close. We all gather often. We all have had a great interest in each other’s lives. This more than blood is what has defined us and keeps bringing us together. We celebrate each other’s success, and we are there for each other in times of need.
Adoption runs through the family on the in-law side. Also, one of Jeff’s sisters-in-law is adopted, as is her sister who lives close by and is a good friend of ours. Christine is very close to her older brother and his family who live upstate. We visit his tree farm for our Christmas tree each year. We spend time at their cabin. The holidays are also a time for making Mom’s Christmas bread and cookies. We love to share them with friends. One tradition of ours is to buy a Christmas tree ornament from every place we visit. Our tree is full of fun ornaments from our many adventures.
If you choose us, your baby would be welcomed with so much love from this extended family. Both of our families have been very excited and encouraging about our plans to adopt. They can’t wait to welcome a new baby to the family.
What Led Us To Adoption
On our first dates, we discussed our families. Jeff mentioned his parents didn’t think they could have children, and they adopted his two older brothers. He and his sister later proved that theory wrong! Well, they are a very close foursome and he has always wanted to repay his good fortune to the next generation. Christine mentioned she had volunteered in orphanages in Central America and adoption has always been very close to her heart. Learning these things about each other a very defining moment in our young relationship. Our desire to have a family through adoption has only grown.

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
