dear expectant mother
I’ve never met you, but let me tell you what I already know to be true. You are brave. You are selfless. And I know this because your love for this child is brighter than any light. And that brightness is because of those qualities. I would be honored and proud to spend the rest of my life continuing to instill in your child, your qualities, to give him or her the life you imagine.
My hope is that I can raise a child we can both be proud of. If you choose me as your precious child’s adoptive parent, I know that when I teach him or her about you, the first story I will tell is the sacrifice you made. I want to give your child every opportunity, every memory, and infinite love. I want to show your child the world and let your child lead the way. But the most important thing for you to know is that none of that is possible because of me—but because of you.
There are not worthy words to express the gratitude, awe, and joy I have for even being considered to love your child. I am humbled by your love and inspired to learn to love in the way you already do. There is no end to this journey, only different paths. Your child will always carry a piece of you with him or her, and I hope to help that piece grow.
I’ve learned to read music. I’ve been to Europe. And I’ve run a marathon. I’ve failed at snowboarding, and I’ve been to the top of the Empire State Building. I’ve had the lead in a musical. My name is Jessica and I was born in Texas. Professionally, I work as an attorney.
I love everything from Broadway to Detroit Tigers Baseball, and I have been fortunate to experience so much of both. I have a large family, including three brothers and one sister. We love making memories together. I’m the oldest - the leader, and the organizer. I’m the who always knows what to get everyone for Christmas. I can’t wait to bring a new member into my family, to have new experiences, and to make new memories.
My Home & Pets
I live in Tennessee. My home is a three-bedroom, two-bath house, with a big fenced-in backyard. I have a friendly relationship with my neighbors, one of whom is known for his extravagant Halloween decorations, adding up to as many as 15, ten-foot blow-up characters. One of my other neighbors has two little girls who I often hear giggling as they chase my dogs up and down the fence line.
I have a sign in my house that says, “The house is for the dogs, I just pay the mortgage.” My Frenchtons, Maverick and Sullivan, get a birthday “pupcake” every year and sometimes even let me take their pictures with them in party hats. They have stockings with their names on them and even their own Easter baskets. They can’t wait for a new family member who will love on them and maybe even drop a few scraps on the floor!
My Extended Family
My mom always says, the first time you come to our home, you’re a guest—every time after that, you’re family. I don’t have step-cousins or half-siblings, I have cousins and brothers and sisters. And I wouldn’t have it any other way. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because of my family. We squeeze everyone into my parent’s house and spend the entire day eating, watching football, and playing games. It’s loud and messy, and I cherish every moment of it.
One of the things that excites me about being a mother is starting traditions with my own children. I want to give them new pajamas and a Christmas movie every Christmas Eve. I want to celebrate birthdays. I want to have game night. I have a family that loves being together. We all live nearby, so we get to do just that all the time. Whether it’s swimming at my Aunt’s pool, grilling out together just because, or sitting around a bonfire - my family is the most loving and accepting bunch that you’ll ever meet. Each one of them swears they are the most excited about my adoption journey.
What Led Me To Adoption
As a single female, I have never felt drawn to another person the way I feel drawn to starting a family by having a child. My heart feels like it literally jumps for joy when I imagine being a mother. Adoption allows me to start my family. I have the resources, the time, the extended family, but most importantly, the desire to love a child with my entire being. I want to shower a child with experiences and memories he or she can cherish forever.

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
