dear expectant mother
First, thank you. Not being able to have children of our own and so desperately wanting a family, we thank you for considering us as worthy parents for your child. We know this is not an easy choice, but to be considered for such an important role in a child's life is truly humbling and a gift we will never forget. Please be assured we will do everything we can to raise your child to be a generous, kind, motivated, and all-around good person.
Our family vacations, walks in the neighborhood, and summers by the pool will be forever changed by watching it all unfold through your child's eyes, and we can't wait to experience it. We were both blessed with loving families and so many opportunities afforded to us and want to ensure your child will be shown the same love and have similar opportunities to explore who they are, try new things, and grow to be the person they were meant to be.
The importance of love is something we were both taught at a young age, and this is a lesson we would also impact on your child and ensure they take forward in their life. This will be a life-changing decision for us and one that we will not take lightly. You have our word that this child will have a world of possibilities, a world of support behind them, and that he or she will be shown love every day.
From the day we met, we knew we would spend the rest of our lives together. Seven years have passed, and we’ve been inseparable! Time has flown as we have grown our relationship, from moving in together, taking vacations together (both with just us and with our families), new jobs, and getting a dog (Scout), to getting engaged, buying and moving to a bigger house, and getting married in 2017! We are best friends, life partners, and really do make one another whole. JR is growing into a successful Marketer and Brenden manages a sales team that adores him. We both work for the same company, which has amazing parental benefits and the flexibility we will both need to raise a child and grow our family.
Our Home & Pets
Last year, we moved into the home we knew we were going to grow a family in! We have a four-bedroom house in a historic neighborhood, with a big backyard for our child and our dog, Scout, to run around in. It backs up to a church with a playscape and fields for Little League sports. We have a very close-knit neighborhood where we love to walk our dog in, meet up with neighbors, and explore. We also belong to a Country Club near our house and can't wait to take our child to the pool in the summer, learn to play tennis, and make friends!
Our Extended Family
We both come from big families, each with four siblings. Combined, we have 14 nieces and nephews! This means your child will have cousins galore! Brenden's family is local and we see them regularly, so there are plenty of built-in playmates. JR's family is a bit more spread out, but we go to the family lake house in the summer and travel to see them as well, which is always a lot of fun!
We also travel a lot with our families, taking trips to the beach, the lake, or skiing. We can't wait to experience these trips through the eyes of a child and create new memories of our own. All of our parents and siblings are so excited for us to adopt; they have already given their unsolicited suggestions on names, ways to decorate the nursery, and parenting tips! They will be an amazing support system as we raise your child as a healthy and happy member of the family.
What Led Us To Adoption
We’ve both always wanted a family of our own. Together, we’re excited and anxious to start growing. We have seen friends grow their families through adoption and give their child so much love, so we knew this was going to be our path to having a family of our own. Our families and friends have been waiting for the day we decide to grow our family, and we’re all hoping that day comes soon! We have a lot of love to give and can't wait to get the call from you choosing us to be the best dads we can be!

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
