dear expectant mother
We cannot begin to know your feelings and emotions in considering adoption for your child. We are trying to find a way to express our gratitude for you and your selflessness, but there are no words big enough or important enough to do that for us. We are honored that you are considering us as a family for your baby.
We’ve been called kids at heart, and our house is full of music, movie nights, friends, games, and homemade food and cupcakes. Nothing would make us (and our friends and family) happier than to be able to share our joy and love with a child. We will do everything in our power to ensure that they are safe, supported, and happy. We will share our passions and love of life with them, and we look forward to establishing new traditions and seeing a child grow and learn.
Above all, we want to ensure they know of your courage and selflessness in choosing placement for adoption.
John and Sara
We’re John and Sara! We started dating 12 years ago after being introduced by a mutual friend, and we quickly bonded over our love of music and local sports. We enjoy cooking together weekly and collecting records at our local store or flea markets.
John works in direct sales for a heating and air conditioning supply company after spending years in the install and service field for HVAC; Sara works as a client service manager for a home health company, recently switching from physical therapy and massage work. We’ve been married for nine years and continue to attend concerts when we can and football games every fall. Our weekends are spent throwing axes in league with friends who have become a second family, going to local flea markets or festivals, or listening to records and playing cards together. We love to vacation yearly and we tend to go to the beach, camping, or on cruises. John plays video games, goes fishing, and reads in his down time. Sara likes to read, bake and cook, and do yoga in her spare time.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a three-story home on a quiet, friendly street with our two cats. Pye is a 12 year old Tabby-mix who loves to lounge in the sun and comes running when you whistle the Batman theme, and Opie is a 10 year old Tabby who plays fetch and loves to chase his own tail like a dog. Our backyard has a deck, plenty of room to play, and is a gathering place for friends and family to enjoy lawn games and fire pits. Living in the suburbs of a major city affords us the opportunity of being in a good school district while having access to Philadelphia area museums and family-friendly events.
Our Extended Family
We both come from big, loving families! Between us we have seven siblings and make it a priority to spend time together as often as possible. We are fortunate to have many cousins on Sara’s side to celebrate holidays and life events, and nieces and nephews on John’s side who live close enough to go out for a meal or a drink frequently. We both enjoy cook outs with extended family through the summers and John’s family gets together at least twice a year to make ravioli from scratch. Both of us come from strong family traditions surrounding holidays and food, so we thoroughly enjoy Christmas Eve to celebrate the feast of the seven fishes. The majority of our family on either side live within a two hour drive. Sara’s sister lives the furthest in Indiana but comes home at least twice a year and Sara and John do road trips out for long weekends.
Sara’s parents and youngest brother live one town over, and we see them a lot for Sunday night dinners. Sara’s sister lives the farthest away, in Indianapolis, but she comes home for Christmas and during the summer months. Her oldest brother visits the area a lot, despite a five-hour drive. Both of our families are rooted in a strong Italian heritage (though Sara’s mom is from the South), so we love get-togethers, holiday traditions, and food!
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always felt strongly about having a family. Unfortunately, we struggled with infertility from the start, and we were told by doctors we would need medication and more to conceive. As a couple, we agreed this wasn’t a path we wanted to take. It was a painful experience for us, but after years of discussions and research, we felt a strong call to explore adoption. Now that we’re here, we are so ecstatic to be on this path. Adoption feels so right for us, and we are honored to be on this journey.

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
