dear expectant mother
Although we have not yet met, we feel connected to you and your journey. We thank you for reading our profile. We admire your bravery in considering an adoption plan. We know that it is only through an abundant amount of love for your unborn child that you could consider adoptive parents. Our promise to you is that, if you choose us as adoptive parents, your child will always know just how much you love him or her. We hope to be the parents you have dreamt about for your child.
It is our dream to become parents to an adopted child, and we believe in our hearts that adoption is the journey we are supposed to be on. If you choose us, we will raise your baby with unconditional love and support. Your child will be surrounded by the love of his or her older brother and our family and friends. Thank you for considering our family to become a part of yours.
We met as children because our families are very good friends. Our save-the-date was a photo of us as seven-year-olds. As the years passed, we lost touch. But then as adults, our paths crossed occasionally and we became friends again. John was stationed in North Carolina while in the Marine Corps, and Erin moved to Maryland to begin her teaching career. John would regularly stop in as he made the drive home to New Jersey. Our friendship grew and it became clear that we were supposed to be together. Over the phone, Erin told John she was in love with him. John showed up in Maryland the next day and we have been together ever since. We dated for a year before getting engaged but spoke of marriage and children immediately. Our firstborn, Jack, joined us in 2015. He is a smart, curious, amazing little man who is just waiting to be a big brother!
Our Home & Pets
We own a great three-bedroom, three-bathroom home in a quaint neighborhood in an idyllic Rhode Island town. It has an excellent school system. The house sits on a corner lot of 0.25 acres, and it boasts a large side yard as well as a backyard with an amazing fenced-in, inground pool with a motion sensor. The upstairs has an open floor plan for the kitchen, family room, and dining room. The downstairs has a second family room that functions as a playroom.
We have a friendly indoor cat named Wiley. Wiley has been living with Erin for 12 years and is loved by the whole family. Our house is located near state parks, playgrounds, and the ocean, which we frequent during the summer months.
Our Extended Family
We both have large, loving, and energetic families.
John is the oldest of four boys. As kids, we were all involved in sports and still maintain a competitive spirit today. Now spread across the east coast, we make an effort a number of times a year to gather and spend time together. We always look forward to the times we get to spend with each other. At John’s aunt and uncle’s house, a family pond-hockey game is a yearly wintertime tradition. There are yearly summertime gatherings at another aunt and uncle’s lake house (where the picture of us at seven-years-old was taken).
Erin is the middle child, with an older brother and younger sister. One of Erin’s favorite things to do with her family is spending time on our Christmas tree farm that her grandfather began in the 1970’s. Erin’s family all live within 30 minutes of one another and are a very tight-knit group that provide such a support system for her and John. We both have a set of grandparents still with us today, along with a nephew, Owen.
We value every moment we spend with our family.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have a two-year-old son and we know our family is not done growing. Both our families have experience with adoption. Erin’s aunt and uncle adopted two daughters from China, and John's aunt and uncle adopted three boys from Guatemala. We have five first cousins that joined our family through adoption. We believe adoption to be a great blessing and the best avenue to grow our family. The moment we started talking about adoption, both of us had a feeling of joy and relief after struggling with infertility and IVF. Making the choice to adopt took a great amount of weight and stress off our shoulders. We truly feel the child that the Lord has chosen for our family will be placed in our home.

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
