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 cupcakes. Nothing would make us (and our friends and family) happier than to be able to share our joys in life, new experiences, and love with your baby, and we will do everything we can to ensure they are safe, supported, and happy. We will share our passions, and we look forward to learning new ones as your child discovers their own talents and interests.
Above all, we want to ensure they know of your courage and selflessness in choosing this path to ensure they have every opportunity for success and wellbeing.
We’re John and Sara. We started dating nine years ago after being introduced by a mutual friend, and we quickly bonded over our love of music, live shows, and local sports. 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 physical therapist assistant and massage therapist with a specialization in oncology. We were married five years ago and continue to collect concert ticket stubs, vinyl records, and sports memorabilia. Viewing football games with friends and family in the fall occupy the majority of our weekends, and we love it! During warmer weather, we like to hike and go to local street festivals. Living so close to Philadelphia also allows us to visit museums, walk on trails, and get great cheesesteaks and water ice.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a three-story home on a quiet, friendly street with our two cats. Pye is a seven-year-old Tabby-mix who loves to lounge in the sun and comes running when you whistle the Batman theme, and Opie is a five-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 “the freighbors,” a group of friends within walking distance. Living in the suburbs of a major city affords us the opportunity of being in a good school district while having access to museums and family-friendly events. Our favorite event is Super Sunday, a big, open-air market with local shop sales, crafts, and food trucks.
Our Extended Family
We both 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 parents’ 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. 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 or 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
