dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for taking the time to look through our profile to get to know us and for your consideration in helping us to complete our loving family. We understand this is probably the most difficult experience you’ve ever faced, but we also hope we can bring you some comfort in knowing your decision to carry to term and considering us would fulfill our dream of being parents, something we are unable to do without your help.
As a happily married couple, we would love nothing more than to be caring and attentive parents to your child. We want to give our future child all the world has to offer, from a loving family to travel and adventures, a fulfilling education, and more. We want to raise this child to be healthy, happy, and successful, however they define it, and most of all, we want them to know we love them exactly as they are.
Life will always throw unexpected twists and turns our way, and when it does, we look to each other for strength. We are so thankful you would consider helping us to expand our family and give us the chance to experience all of the joys, challenges, and adventures that come with raising a child. Thank you for taking the time to consider us as prospective parents. We are excited to enter this next chapter in our lives, and we hope to hear from you soon!
We met in Israel in 2015 while teaching English, after which we returned to the U.S. and started dating in October 2016. After getting married in May 2019, we focused on our work and creating our home together. Jordana works as a graphic designer, while Issac focuses on operations and helps his company manage offices nationwide. In our free time, we love to hike at national parks, play with our pets, and stay as active as we can. Issac loves playing video games, maintaining the plants in and outside of the house, and weight lifting. Jordana enjoys baking, exercise, and going to the theater (plays, not movies) whenever possible. We both love the outdoors and going to the beach as much as possible, and we enjoy traveling and exploring the world.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a fairly busy, diverse, suburban neighborhood in Maryland in a house with a large backyard, where we enjoy spending as much time as possible. Our lives are heavily influenced by our three sweet animals: Booger, a six-year-old black cat; Douglas, a four-year-old gray cat; and Peanut, a two-year-old Dachshund, all of whom love people, snuggles, playtime, and treats. We live a ten-minute walk from a small, historic town and a large city-owned park with a pond, waterpark, playground, and mini golf. We also live 30-45 minutes from two major cities and 10-15 minutes from a variety of lakes and national parks, where we love to hike on the weekends.
Our Extended Family
Jordana has a close-knit family, even though they live around the country. Her parents have been married for almost 35 years and live and work together in California. Her grandma, brother, sister, and their respective partners also live in California, while her uncle lives in Connecticut. Jordana’s siblings travel frequently for work, so they visit us whenever they pass through the area. Jordana’s family does their best to keep in touch weekly and prioritizes Thanksgiving as a chance for everyone to get together at least once every year.
Issac comes from a family of five, with one older sister and one younger sister. His younger sister and her husband had a lovely baby girl in April 2022. Issac’s parents have been married for almost 40 years and are both retired; they split their time between their homes in North Carolina and Maryland. Issac’s family makes a point to get together for Passover each spring for the family’s favorite holiday.
What Led Us To Adoption
Due to medical complications, Jordana is unable to get pregnant, which led us to pursue adoption as our only choice to become parents. We have known since the beginning of our relationship that we could not have children naturally, so this process did not come as a shock to us or to our family and friends. Not only is Jordana’s uncle adopted but some of our closest friends are also adopted and have been open and honest with us to help us navigate this journey. We have been excited and ready to adopt since we first said, “I love you,” and our support group is thrilled to be adding a new member to the family.

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!
