dear expectant mother
Thank you for considering us to be the proud parents of your baby. We have faith that a child will bless our family when it is meant to be. We know that you must have faith in choosing the right family for your child. We hope that you will be moved by our story and the love we have to offer your child. If you choose us as adoptive parents, you can trust that we will love your baby without conditions or judgment. We will teach him or her by showing empathy and growing together as a family. We will be playful and silly, and always kind. We will be firm but fun-loving. We will be open to anything your child is interested in, from hitting a baseball to playing the trumpet, researching backyard bugs to twirling in a tutu. We will foster a positive, encouraging environment where your child can become whomever he or she wants to be.
If you choose us, we will also always be open to whatever relationship you desire to have with us and your child. Your child will know his or her story at an early age, and we will always communicate how beautiful a blessing it is to have our lives connected. We are truly humbled by your strength and your selflessness in considering us as adoptive parents for your precious child. We wish you love and peace in your decision.
We are Jeri and Christy, a fun-loving, open-minded, and compassionate couple. We were high school sweethearts who reconnected after ten years apart. We ran into each other in Chick-fil-a! Needless to say, once our eyes connected, the rest was history!
We were married in 2013 on a sandy beach in Duck Key, Florida. We enjoy walking the trails near our home and traveling to our cozy beach get-away for boogie-boarding and fishing. We work hard to ensure our financial stability and a healthy future. Christy has just co-founded a boutique, which has always been her dream. When we aren’t working we are playing with our two fur babies, cruising on our boat, doing home renovation projects, crafting, and cooking.
We believe in keeping a positive outlook on life and making the most of each day. We like to be playful and silly, and we love to laugh!
Our Home & Pets
Our primary home is a recently renovated, three-bedroom, two-bath brick ranch. We have a fenced-in backyard where Mea, our black Yorkie-Poo, likes to run and catch a Frisbee. Though she is small, she is very energetic and a show dog at heart! Her brother, Murray, is a green-eyed, mischievous but affectionate, black and brown kitty cat we found and saved seven years ago.
Our second home is a recreated coastal trailer with a screened-in porch, spacious back deck, and an outside shower. It sits in North Carolina, in a family-friendly community. From our comfy couches, you can smell the salt air and listen to the waves crash.
No matter where we are, we are home when we are together.
Our Extended Family
Our parents live just minutes away and they all are anxiously waiting and jumping with joy to be grandparents. This is one of the main reasons why we chose to plant our family roots in North Carolina. Your home is truly where your heart is, and our heart lies with our family. Our family is very large and close-knit. Holidays are our favorite because we get to spend time over some good ole’ country cooking with everyone in our family, from our newborn cousins to our oldest aunt. We also take yearly family vacations to the Florida Keys or North Carolina, with three of our closest cousins who we consider to be sisters. We cannot help but mention our two best friends and their two-year-old son, who live only a short commute away and who support our adoption journey wholeheartedly.
What Led Us To Adoption
We’ve had an interesting journey in pursuing parenthood. We obviously weren’t going to get pregnant on our own. We spend a lot of time with our best friends’ two-year-old son, and Jeri’s cousin’s daughter a three-year-old. While pushing swings, reading Good Night Moon, and helping to change their diapers, we all along have dreamed of having a child of our own. Christy pursued getting pregnant through a fertility center for two years. Despite fertility treatments and multiple IUI attempts, she never became pregnant. During that time we talked a lot about adoption, often feeling our heart-strings pulled in this direction. We researched and learned more about adoption and decided this would be the best way to grow our family. We have prepared financially and emotionally, and are leaving our hearts wide open for the child meant for us.

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
