dear expectant mother
We don’t know who you are, and we don’t know your story, but we know you are out there somewhere, hopefully reading this profile and considering granting us the most precious gift we could ever hope to receive. If you decide to choose us, please know your child will be the answer to our every prayer, and we will never forget that. He or she will be treasured with all of the boundless love of a family that knows what it’s like to lose a child and values every little second together all that much more for the experience. We will cherish your child as the precious gift he or she is and never forget the angel who brought him to us. Every day, your child will be reminded that he or she is a gift and is loved above all else.
If you don’t choose us to raise your precious child, we hope you still realize we are praying for you and have so much respect for your selfless decision to bring a priceless gift to a family that may not otherwise be able to experience parenthood.
You are beautiful to us, whoever or wherever you are, and so is your child.
We are Randi and Jonathan, a homemaker/aspiring novelist and a software developer. On our first date, we went to the movies to see Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Somehow, we rose above that disappointing obstacle and were engaged on Christmas Eve six months later. We have now been married five years and are even more in love now than we were then. In Jonathan’s spare time, he likes to use the magic of YouTube for DIY home improvement projects. He also enjoys the occasional video game and our weekend trips to visit his parents’ farm. Randi loves reading, classic movies, trying out new recipes, and spending time with our awesome four- and five-year-old nieces. Her personal hero is Audrey Hepburn. She also loves walking around the park with her amazing husband and every other opportunity they get to spend time together, which is thankfully often since Jonathan works from home.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a two-floor Colonial house with five bedrooms. It really feels more like three floors as the basement was converted into a finished apartment by the previous resident. Jonathan currently uses it for his office, and it is also a great location for our family game nights. Our subdivision is great, with lots of awesome neighbors who look out for one another. The city we live in is consistently ranked among the safest in the U.S. Our school district has been nationally recognized and routinely receives some of the best test scores in the state. We have two cats—a calico named Matilda and a cow cat named Daphne. They are very sweet and loving and love getting cuddles from our little nieces.
Our Extended Family
Both sides of our family are incredibly excited about our adoption plans. Randi’s parents and grandparents absolutely live for their grandbabies and can’t wait to have another little angel to spoil. Jonathan’s parents are also terribly excited and are already setting up college funds and planning Disneyland trips. This would be their first grandchild since the loss of our beautiful Daniel, and they can’t wait to open their hearts again.
We are lucky enough to have a very close family, and we spend as much time together as possible. Our favorite tradition is to rent a cabin in the mountains for Christmas—both sets of parents, Randi’s grandparents, and her sister and nieces—and spend a week together enjoying the snow and all of the beauty nature has to offer. We sit by the fire and tell stories to the girls on Christmas Eve, and Randi helps them bake cookies to leave for Santa. Uncle Jon gets a kick out of waiting for the girls to go to bed and then going up on the top floor and stomping around, jingling a string of bells to make it sound like Santa’s reindeer are landing. There is something magical about these Christmases together, and we cherish every minute of them.
What Led Us To Adoption
Our first kiss was at the top of a Ferris wheel, and we have certainly had other ups and downs since then. Jonathan was in a terrible car accident in 2016 and was in a wheelchair for six months. Two months after his accident, we lost our only son, Daniel. Throughout all of this, our love and comfort in one another has only grown stronger. Through all of the joys and tragedies of our life together, we have grown to rely on one another and trust in one another unconditionally. We want so badly to have another opportunity to share that love with a child and know adoption will make our family complete.

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
