dear expectant mother
This must be the hardest decision a mother could ever make, and we want you to know the weight of this decision is not lost on us. We understand the emotions you must be feeling right now. We believe you are considering giving everyone involved the most precious gift: the gift of life and immeasurable love. We hope you know how blessed and honored we feel for even being considered to love your baby.
If your decision leads you to us, we want you to know you will always have a special place in our hearts for your kindness and this incredibly selfless act. But please know that no matter what you decide, you and your baby are loved and adored by us.
We have hopes of creating family traditions like Lego building on Saturdays and decorating for the holidays while blasting Christmas music. We hope to share Jesus and God’s love for them and teach the importance of kindness and helping someone in need. We also plan to travel often and have big family adventures. Your baby will have a life full of love, laughter, happiness, fun and a family that is dedicated to them. We pray you feel peace about your decision and are so grateful to even be considered.
Josh & Sara
We are Josh and Sara, high school sweethearts together since we were 16 years old. We both knew from the beginning that it would be us forever. Even after our families moved apart in high school, we did years of long distance. All we ever wanted was each other. Josh joined the Navy after high school, and we were married in 2011 while stationed in Virginia. We make each other laugh every day and support each other in everything we do. Josh has a wonderful career in cyber security, and Sara has enjoyed her career in property management. Through all the deployments and moving across the country and overseas, the constant has always been us. We feel blessed to have grown up together and to be each other’s best friend.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a four-bedroom, three-bathroom, ranch-style home in a beautiful town with an awesome school district in Missouri. 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 all in the same room. We have a newly finished basement with a movie room and kitchen for entertaining and plenty of room for building Legos. We have three sweet dogs—an old golden retriever named Shadow, a chubby chocolate Lab named Moose, a goofy golden retriever named Duke—and a crazy little kitty named Lenny.
Our Extended Family
Sara’s family is smaller. It includes her parents, little brother, and grandma. Her little brother is a Navy veteran who met his wife in Japan. They have two hilarious little boys. All her family live minutes away from each other in Michigan. They always have fun playing games and cooking. They make sure to take trips often to visit each other.
Josh has a great big, loud family. His grandparents had 17 kids. There are a lot of aunts, uncles, and cousins. They love big parties celebrating anything and everything. As a Christian family, Christmas and Easter are special family gatherings that everyone tries to attend.
In the summer, we like to go on vacation, and the holiday season is special to both of us. We can’t wait to share our favorite holiday traditions, like baking ALL the cookies and having Christmas music dance parties. Both of our families also can’t wait to have someone else to love. They are all excited to become grandparents or aunts and uncles again. They couldn’t be more supportive or happy to add to the family.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always talked about having a family and all the fun things we would do. We talked about all the family trips we would take and names that we loved. While having children naturally hasn’t happened for us, we are so happy to grow our family through adoption and share all the love and excitement we’ve been dreaming about. We have many nieces and nephews who mean the world to us and we can’t wait to be a family and share all the love we have in our hearts. Adoption gives us hope that our dream of being parents will come true, and we couldn’t be more excited 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!
