We feel privileged that you would consider us to raise your beautiful child. Know that, if you choose us, we will surround your little one with love, laughter, development opportunities, and prayer. Your child will know at an early age the story of his or her biological family, and how grateful we are for your sacrifice and selfless love. We won’t ever take for granted the honor of being entrusted with such a priceless gift.
Your little one will grow up with loving parents and extended family who will always be there with support, advice, and encouragement. He or she will also learn about a loving God who loves them more than anyone else in the world. We will teach Ethan and your little one how to encourage, support, and be each other’s biggest cheerleader.
We look forward to the opportunity to nurture and watch your beautiful child grow into the person God created him or her to be and to make a positive difference in the world. Thank you with all our heart for taking the time to learn about us and for considering us to provide a loving home for your precious newborn.
Hi, We are Keyla and Jeremy. We met at a Christian youth conference in 2001. While Keyla was on stage singing, Jeremy was scrambling to figure who this person was. Not only did he get her number, but we ended up going to dinner that evening and talking non-stop over the next few months. We became great friends. After several months of dating, we got married in 2003.
We love traveling to new places together, spending time outdoors, and discovering amazing cuisine. Keyla is an accomplished vocalist with a passion for music, and she works mostly from home as an associate pastor for a local church. Jeremy has worked at the same non-profit healthcare organization for 18 years in progressive leadership roles. But his busy work schedule doesn’t keep him from being home for dinner and family time each evening.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood surrounded by great neighbors. We are blessed with a large backyard and pool where Ethan loves to play and swim. Our Black Labrador Chloe loves to endlessly fetch her toy ball until someone tells her she is tired! Inside we have four bedrooms and a large kitchen where everyone loves to gather at the beginning and end of the day. It also is the favorite meeting place for extended family gatherings during the holidays.
Our Extended Family
Because of Ethan’s Ethiopian heritage, we get to celebrate Ethiopian and American Christmases each year, which fall on different dates. This includes spending Christmas Eve with Keyla’s family, where we open gifts, eat yummy food and watch classic movies. Jeremy grew up in a large family, and so we annually travel to North Carolina to celebrate their favorite holiday, Thanksgiving. Ethan always has a blast with his 11 cousins!
Our Adoption Story
Providing a loving home where a child can develop and flourish has been a dream for both of us for a long time. This dream came true seven years ago when we adopted our son, Ethan, from Ethiopia. He is such a joy and gift from God. He is very excited about becoming a big brother someday! We are looking forward to extending that same love and care as we grow our family through adoption again.

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
