dear expectant mother
We have gone over and over what to say and have rewritten this letter a hundred times.
All the words we try to put together never seem to measure up. Thank you can’t begin to touch how blessed and honored we feel for even being considered to love your baby. While we can’t imagine all of the emotions and stress you must be dealing with right now, all we can do is reassure you your baby is already so loved and so are you. You are considering giving everyone involved the most precious gift: the gift of life and immeasurable love.
This has to be the hardest decision a mother could ever make, but we want you to know the weight of this decision is not lost on us. If you choose us, you will forever have a special place in our hearts, and we will forever thank God for your kind heart and this phenomenally selfless act. Please know that no matter what you decide or do, you and your baby are already so loved and adored by us.
We have hopes of creating special family traditions like pancakes on Saturdays and decorating for the holidays together while blasting Christmas music. Your baby will have a life full of love, laughter, and happiness and a family that is already praying for both of you. We pray you will feel peace about your decision. We are grateful to even be considered. Thank you.
Josh & Sara
We're high school sweethearts who met in math class. We've been best friends since we were 17 and are still each other's biggest fans. After high school, Sara played softball in college for a few years and Josh joined the Navy. In 2011 we got married at a small courthouse ceremony in Virginia. Josh's years of service led us all over the world, we lived in Italy for a bit and have visited some amazing places. Our favorite by far was Ireland and would love to go back someday. Now as a veteran, Josh works in cybersecurity and Sara works in commercial property management. After years of living in so many different places, we are now settled in Missouri and love that we're just a road trip away from both of our families. Josh enjoys playing video games, watching movies, and is a huge sports fanatic - especially the St. Louis Blues. Sara loves writing on her blog, home decor, and country music. Our favorite date night is dinner and a movie.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a new three-bedroom, two-bathroom home in a beautiful town with an awesome school district. Our house has an open floor plan, with the living room and kitchen being the heart of the home. We love being able to cook, talk, and watch movies while still being in the same room as everyone. We have three sweet dogs: an older golden retriever named Shadow, a chubby chocolate lab named Moose who licks a lot, and Duke, a two-year-old golden retriever who makes us laugh every day. The dogs love to nap and play together and are great pals.
Our Extended Family
Sara’s family includes her parents, little brother, and grandma. Her little brother was in the Navy, where he met his wife in Japan. They have two little boys who are hilarious. Her mom, dad, and brother all live in the same town in Michigan, and her grandma is only a few towns over. Her family are big Chicago sports fans, and they love to take road trips. Sara's family loves to spend time playing games and trying out new recipes.
Josh’s mom was not a part of his life after about five years old. His dad raised his sister and him on his own for many years. His dad is one of 17 kids, so family functions are usually at his grandparents’ lake house and filled with a lot of aunts, uncles, and cousins. In the summer, we like to go fishing, and in the fall, we have a traditional fall festival with hayrides and bonfires.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always talked about having a family. Before we were married, we talked about all the fun things we would do with our kids and the names we loved. We believe God has an amazing plan for us all, and while having children naturally has not happened for us, we are so excited to grow our family and share all the love and excitement we’ve been dreaming about. We have nieces and nephews who mean the world to us, and we can’t wait to share that same love and happiness. Adoption gives us hope that our dream of being parents will come true, and we couldn’t be happier 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
