A warm, sunny hello from Jennifer and Albert in Virginia! We are college sweethearts who met in 2004. We quickly became best friends and study partners. As we spent more time together, our relationship grew, and we fell in love. We were married in 2011. We are still best friends and are so grateful we get to do life together! We enjoy all things superhero, pizza and movie Fridays, ice cream, water activities, and traveling. Jennifer works part-time as an emergency physician. She feels very blessed to be able to continue to work in a field of medicine she loves while being able to spend the majority of her time as a stay-at-home mom to our son. Jennifer enjoys cooking and baking and is very active in her MOPs group. Albert works as an ophthalmologist, specializing in cornea. He enjoys swimming and creating artwork in his spare time.
We live in the suburbs, minutes from the beach as well as beautiful hiking trails. Our home has five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, with an open-concept family room and kitchen, a dining room, and a large playroom. We have a fenced-in backyard that allows plenty of room for running and playing games, and we spend a lot of time on the back porch. We have a swing set and playhouse that we built as well as a small sandbox. There are several other families with young children in the neighborhood, and the kids enjoy playing together. The city also has wonderful playgrounds and parks as well as state-of-the-art recreation centers with splash pads and pools. We also enjoy going to the local botanical gardens and zoo.
Our Extended Family
We are blessed to have a very supportive family. Jennifer’s mother lives with us, and she is a very loving and encouraging Nana who helps with childcare when Jennifer works. Albert’s parents live about one mile away, and we share weekly dinners with them. They enjoy being grandparents and love to spend time with their grandson, playing outside and swimming. Jennifer’s father loves being a grandpa, and we enjoy several visits throughout the year. Our siblings are also very supportive and love being aunts and uncles. Our families are very excited to have another child join the family!
Jennifer has one brother, one sister, two nephews, and one niece. Jennifer and her siblings enjoy taking trips with their families to various amusement and water parks. Jennifer grew up with lots of cousins, and she is still close to them and enjoys the annual reunions. Jennifer’s family has run many different races, including half-marathons and 5Ks, and it has become a tradition that the children have joined now.
Albert has one sister, who is also adopted. Despite not being biological siblings, they have shared a strong bond ever since childhood. We enjoy frequent visits with Albert’s sister, and we also enjoy family vacations with Albert’s sister and parents.
We have struggled with infertility for the past seven years. We were blessed with our son through one of our IVF rounds; however, since his birth and complications that Jennifer suffered postpartum, we have been unable to get pregnant despite multiple subsequent IVF attempts. We have decided to grow our family through adoption now. Adoption has always been close to our hearts and something we thought we would pursue as Albert is adopted and is very grateful to both his biological mother as well as his adoptive parents for the beautiful choice that was made. We are very excited for the opportunity to welcome a new little blessing into our home as well as to develop a relationship with the birthparent(s).

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!
