dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mom,
Thank you for taking the time to read our profile and for taking just a small glance into our lives. We want you to know we have already been praying for you and your precious baby, and we want you to know how truly grateful we are you would consider giving us the greatest gift one person can give to another. We know this is probably the hardest decision you have ever had to make, but we also know this will be the greatest blessing anyone could ever give to us.
Having experienced almost a full-term pregnancy ourselves, we know the experience and the emotions you feel. We also know how it feels to leave the hospital without your baby. Rest assured that your baby will be loved beyond measure by not only us and our extended families but our friends as well, all of whom are so excited and supportive of us as we embark on this journey with you. When we become parents, your baby, along with big sister Haley, will be our world, and we look forward to making memories together and sharing our family traditions. Your baby will know unconditional love, support, and acceptance.
Thank you once again for your selfless and extremely brave and courageous decision to make your child an adoption plan, and we look forward to meeting with you if you choose to.
We met while working for a travel agency and started dating. A short six months later, we decided to tie the knot. Like everyone else, we have had our ups and downs, and life has sure thrown some curveballs; through it all, we have only grown closer to one another. We recently discovered Joey has a fifteen-year-old daughter named Haley, and we couldn’t be happier! She is such a wonderful blessing to us, and we see her often. We enjoy going to antique malls and the movies, loving on our pets, hanging out with friends, being with family, and going to church. Joey is the quiet one, and Krista is the chatterbox, but together, we are a perfect balance. When we are not together, you will find Joey working as a medical assistant for a local doctor’s office and Krista working as an outsourced financial counselor for a large medical center.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a small subdivision in a rural community in Kentucky. Our home is a three-bedroom, one-bath brick house with a large fenced-in backyard. Our backyard is home to two very loving, playful, and spoiled dogs named Roscoe and Jessie. Inside our home lives a very vocal, loving, and a spoiled cat named Daisy Mae. Our community offers two school systems, and our house is only minutes from two local parks and two walking tracks. Our community is also home to a private university, which is continually growing and full of diversity. It’s a great place to raise a family!
Our Extended Family
Joey is the oldest and only boy of three siblings. Most of his family are also in Kentucky, and we visit them at least once a month. Time spent with his sisters usually involves doing something fun with all of the children. Between them, they have five children: three boys and two girls. He enjoys spending time with his granny and challenging his uncle to a game of basketball.
Krista is the youngest and only has one brother. Most of her family is right here in Kentucky and in the same county, so we see each other multiple times a week. We enjoy spending time together as a family. Krista’s brother has one son whose life we are very active in. We are very blessed to be able to attend church with Krista’s brother, sister-in-law, and nephew.
Our extended families consist of many aunts, uncles, and cousins. We spend major holidays together laughing and making unforgettable memories. Our large extended families are beyond excited to welcome a new member into the family to share our traditions with.
What Led Us To Adoption
From the day we said, “I do,” we knew we wanted a family and decided to start trying right away. We tried for nearly eight years before we conceived our son, but God had other plans for him; he was stillborn at 34 weeks gestation. Once we were ready to try again, we found it difficult. Krista has three family members who are adopted from other countries, so we have seen firsthand the joy it can bring and the lives it can change. We decided to take that first step and start our adoption journey. Big sister Haley can hardly wait to have a baby sibling to play with and spoil!

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
