dear expectant mother
While you don’t know us yet, you should know that we have been waiting for this moment for most of our lives. As gay men, we knew having a child of our own would present its challenges and difficulties. Knowing you are considering us to raise your child is a gift we could simply never repay adequately, except honoring you by providing an amazing life for your child while raising them to be an empathetic, compassionate, and all-around good person. Your sacrifice is something that will change our lives forever, and for that, we humbly thank you.
We look forward to raising your child and giving them opportunities to travel around the world with us, exploring all the great sights, cultures, and people this world has to offer. We look forward to introducing them to the people who will be their family, making memories through birthdays, holidays, and family gatherings.
Most of all, we look forward to becoming the best dads we can be by giving your child the life and family we have always dreamed of having. We simply can’t wait to surround them with people who will love them and care for them as they grow and mature. There is nothing more we want than to become dads, and without you, this would not be possible. Thank you for giving this gift of life to your child.
We have been together for over 12 amazing years and have been married since 2016. We live in Pennsylvania in a diverse, artsy, historic neighborhood. Our free time together is normally spent hiking and going to local plays and musicals. Jeff is a talented artist, both painting and photography, and loves cooking and baking. He is employed as a purchasing manager for a large financial institution. Craig is an avid runner and partakes in numerous races each year. He also enjoys gaming, whether it’s a board game or video game. Craig is employed helping youth as a middle school guidance counselor. When we are able to travel, we both love exploring the U.S. and different countries and cultures around the globe. We have always wanted to become dads and are very excited for this child to see the world with us.
Our Home & Pets
We live very close to a city and are just a few blocks away from museums, historic homes, sports stadiums, and a large, beautiful park filled with playgrounds and even a small lake. There is no shortage of child-friendly activities within walking distance, so we are excited to finally be able to enjoy those with a child. Fortunately, the park also has a great dog park for our Italian greyhound, Bonsai, to be able to play and run with the other neighborhood pups. Our home is a three-bedroom house that we built seven years ago. Our home has a quaint backyard, and we are surrounded by the best neighbors you could ask for, many of whom have toddlers who keep it fun for us all.
Our Extended Family
We both come from amazing, supportive families, and get-togethers happen frequently. Our child will certainly not have a shortage of cousins to grow up and make memories with.
Jeff’s mother and stepdad combined have 9 kids. Jeff has16 nieces and nephews that range in age from 2-17. We typically get together for birthdays and Christmas and have various visits in between. Craig’s family is much smaller, with his parents and one brother, who recently started to have a family of his own. His brother and his wife have a two-year-old daughter and just recently had a baby boy earlier this year. Craig’s family all lives on the other side of the state, but we see each other quite often throughout the year.
We always host Thanksgiving dinner at our house for Craig’s family, and the Christmas holiday starts with a visit to Jeff’s family gathering on Christmas Eve before heading to Craig’s parents’ house for the rest of the holiday. We also have a biennial family trip with Craig’s family; we share a beach house and make memories at the ocean.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have known for a very long time that we wanted to parent a child together, and we are at a point now when we are ready to introduce a child into our lives. Having known other families who have adopted, we knew this would be the direction we wanted to go when we were ready to start our own family. Our siblings are all now having children, and we are excited to have many cousins for your child in the same age range to grow up together. Having the support of our friends and family, we are now ready now to become dads.

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
