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. 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.
If you choose us as adoptive parents, please know we will honor you and your role in your baby’s life. We will also honor your wishes regarding your baby’s life. Even though we never met, we already have so much love and admiration for you and your baby.
We hope that you can find comfort knowing that, if you choose us as adoptive parents, your baby would allow us to live out our dream of having a family of our own. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
We’re John and Sara! We started dating ten years ago after being introduced by a mutual friend. We quickly bonded over our love of music, live shows, and Philadelphia sports. We got married four years ago and continue to collect concert ticket stubs, vinyl records, and sports memorabilia. Watching Eagles games and Penn State football with friends and family in the fall occupy the majority of our weekends, and we love it! Cooking meals together, playing cards with our families, and spending time with our cats are also some of our favorite things to do together. For vacation, we like to go to the beach so John can fish and Sara can read and sit in the sun. Living so close to Philadelphia also allows us to visit museums, walk on trails, and get great cheesesteaks and water ice.
John is loyal, honest, and loves all things comics. He works in direct sales for a heating and air conditioning supply company after spending years in the install and service field for HVAC. His job is super close to home and he has the weekends off to spend time with family. Sara is creative, compassionate, and enjoys yoga. She works as a physical therapist assistant and massage therapist with a specialization in oncology.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a three-story home on a quiet, friendly street with our two cats (Pye and Opie). Pye is a seven-year-old female Norwegian Tabby-mix. Opie is a five-year-old male Tabby. We love our big backyard which has a deck and plenty of room to play and host cookouts. We are fortunate enough to have several friends and family members within a ten-minute walk. Living in the suburbs of a major city affords us the opportunity of being in a good school district close to our families while having access to lots of museums and family-friendly events.
Our Extended Family
Both of us come from big, loving families! We have lots of siblings, cousins (two of which were adopted), aunts, and uncles who live near and far. It’s fun for us to take road trips to see the ones farther away, and we frequently see those who live close by.
John is the youngest of five siblings, and all of them live within a two-hour drive from us. We have ten nieces and nephews. We love Christmas Eve because we get to see all of John’s family at his parent’s house less than a mile away. We drive to visit John’s sister and brother in Delaware to celebrate birthdays, make homemade ravioli, and spend time at the beach.
Sara’s parents and youngest brother live one town over, and we see them a lot for Sunday night dinners and Penn State football. Sara’s sister lives the farthest 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 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 or more to conceive. As a couple, we agreed this wasn’t a path we wanted to go down. 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
