dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
It is difficult to put into words the gratefulness and blessing we feel to have this opportunity for you to consider us as adoptive parents. We are truly honored and bursting with excitement. But at the same time, we also understand that this can be a conflicted and difficult time for you. Considering an adoption plan must be incredibly difficult. We want you to know we understand this difficulty and hope you can find solace and comfort in the fact that your child will have an amazing life if you choose us.
This is an incredible and selfless decision you are making, ultimately putting your child’s life and well-being before your own. While we are excited for this life-changing opportunity, we know it is hard for you. We want you to know we cherish your life too and want what is ultimately best for you as well.
You would be allowing your child to enter into a loving, compassionate, and welcomed life. In our family, your child will be free to learn, love, and become the amazing individual who will affect so many other lives. We pray for your comfort and that your life is affected for the better as well. Your decision, although difficult, can and will be a blessing for so many. Thank you for considering us.
Hello! Our names are Joshua and Kasondra. We have been married for ten wonderful years. We are proud parents of a seven-year-old son named Cameron. We live in southeast Texas, where we’ve lived now for nine years. We are looking to grow the love of our family with the adoption of another beautiful child. We are blessed and so excited about this opportunity! Joshua is a mechanical engineer. Kasondra is a stay-at-home mom and homemaker extraordinaire. Our hobbies and interests include fishing, traveling, and just spending lots of time with our family and friends.
Our Home & Pets
Our home is located in southeast Texas, only 20 minutes away from both sets of grandparents. Our home is situated on a plot of land that is just under an acre. When choosing a home, we wanted to make sure we had a large backyard so we could spend our evening and weekend enjoying time having fun in the sun. While we live in a rural area perfect for raising a family, we are just a short distance from a larger city with unlimited activities. We have two cats, Whodey and Vito, and one dog, Ozzy, who are a critical part of our family. We share a love for pets and grew up with them. We want our children to have the same blessing.
Our Extended Family
We are very fortunate to have a large family and group of friends we get to share our lives with. We cherish, help, and receive help from all of them, and we are just there for each other.
On both sides of the family, we have grandparents, aunts, uncles, and many cousins, and we see them regularly at holidays and various gatherings throughout the year. We also have a whole host of family friends with children we see on a regular basis.
Every year we spend the week prior to Thanksgiving at a lake with members of Kasondra’s family. We have a great time fishing, boating, and just being together. At Christmas, both sets of grandparents stay with us on Christmas Eve to open presents and cook a family meal.
Throughout the year, we spend frequent time with our family friends. We often have cookouts, movie nights, and board game nights. On most summer weekends, we spend time having fun in the sun. The kids thoroughly enjoy our inflatable water slide, trampoline, and playground set while the adults cook up something on the grill and socialize. We are a social family and love spending time with our family and friends.
What Led Us To Adoption
Before we had our son, we were interested in the opportunity of adoption. We always thought we would like to build our family with both biological and adopted children. Our son, who is biological, has a rare genetic condition. Through genetic counseling, we were told that if Kasondra got pregnant again, we could not rule out that the baby would have the same condition. Knowing this, adoption seems like the perfect opportunity to grow our family. The adoption process is a blessing for adoptive parents and something we are excited to be a part of.

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!
