dear expectant mother
We want you to know we are so happy you are reading this, and we are so thankful you are considering us to raise your precious baby. We know this choice is not easy, and the respect we have for you is enormous.
If you choose us as the family to raise your child, please know they will be loved beyond measure. Our home is full of laughter and adventure, and our desire is to encourage your child to discover their passions and talents, knowing they are loved no matter what. We will travel with your child, showing them the beautiful world we live in. There will always be family about to get into creative mischief with or spend time making memories. We will go apple picking, experience a traditional New England Christmas, and spend time together as family wherever and whenever we can. We will encourage your child to seek a world-class education and strive to teach them the confidence to always reach for the stars.
Thank you again for getting to know us and the dreams and hopes we have for our family. It takes a village, and you are an important part of that village. Your child will always know about you and the love you have for them. We welcome and respect your choices in creating a relationship with our family. Please know we will always be grateful you took the time to learn about us today.
We met online five years ago, and we’ve been inseparable ever since! Brady proposed to Johanna atop a beautiful mountain, and the wedding was held in the same sentimental spot. Brady is an air traffic controller and pilot, and he loves all things plane related. Johanna is a music therapist and loves to use music as a tool for growth and healing. Through the course of our relationship, Johanna would describe Brady as her rock, always ready with a smile and an encouraging word. Brady would describe Johanna as the one who keeps him steady and challenges him in a loving way to expand his horizons. We both love to laugh, and we never go to bed mad. We balance each other out, creating a strong and loving relationship with room for both of us to grow and thrive with love and support.
Our Home & Pets
We live in New England, in a small town close to larger cities and nature. In the fall, we go apple picking and watch the leaves change color. In the winter, there is nothing better than playing in the snow. We have a three-bedroom Colonial on two acres, which is home to us, Johanna’s brother, and our cats and dog. The house is full of windows, with lots of light and beautiful views of trees and the many woodland animals that come to hang out in our yard. Our black lab, Tytania, loves long walks, and our cats, Oberon, Puck, Greta, and Kierna, love to play and birdwatch. Our town has a top-rated school district and lots of opportunities to make friends through extracurricular activities.
Our Extended Family
Johanna comes from a large family: she is one of ten! Brady’s family is slightly smaller, as he is one of two, but both of our families are loving and involved. Johanna’s parents have adopted, and could not be more thrilled we are following in their footsteps, and Brady’s parents are so excited to welcome their first grandchild through adoption.
Both families come to visit often, and with Johanna’s sisters close by, there are tons of aunts, uncles, and cousins near for friendship and shenanigans. Family traditions we are excited to pass on include Christmas by Candlelight with Johanna’s family and an annual winter mountain trip with Brady’s family.
One special aspect of our extended family is the presence of Johanna’s brother, who lives with us and is an important part of our household. Adopted into her family as a baby, he has grown into a wonderful young man who doesn’t let his diagnosis of Down's Syndrome and autism slow him down. He loves babies and is probably more excited than anyone else that we are building our family through adoption.
What Led Us To Adoption
We shared our dreams for a family the day we met. We have hoped, hurt, laughed, cried, and cemented a strong desire for family on this crazy and beautiful journey. Carrying genetic children has been a struggle for us, and we have always talked about building our family with adoption, genetic children or not. It built Johanna’s family in unique and special ways, as her parents welcomed two wonderful boys with Down Syndrome through adoption. In the end, we know love is all you need. We are ready and excited beyond measure to start building our family, and we can think of no better way than adoption.

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
