dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
We are in awe of the precious gift nestled within you and your willingness to consider entrusting that gift to us. We have been praying for you and your baby and trust God will guide you in a special way. When we began the adoption process, all fear and uncertainty vanished. We boldly entered this new chapter of our lives. We want fear and uncertainty to vanish for you also as you enter a new chapter of your life. Throughout the process, beginning with a whisper from God saying, “It’s time!” to paperwork, appointments, and excitement, we have seen God working. His timing is perfect, and we pray you feel the time is right to choose our family. We already love this baby girl you will hopefully place in our arms one day.
If you choose us, your baby girl will be surrounded by your unconditional love and the unconditional love of our family. Many loving arms await her arrival! The surprise miracle she is will be greatly celebrated! We will be forever grateful for you as we gaze upon the sweet face God created in you for such a time as this. Our prayers will surround you both daily.
Rebecca loves living out her dream of being a homeschooling stay-at-home mom. She extends her teaching to ministry work through several support groups and as a church nursery volunteer. Rebecca enjoys praying, reading, writing, cooking, puzzles, gardening, and walking in nature. Justin loves being a dad. He plays drums, earned his black belt in tae-kwon-do with his sons, and enjoys working around the house on projects. He is a project leader for work and is frequently chosen for leadership roles in various organizations. We were brought together by mutual friends at a restaurant for lunch. On that day, before Rebecca ever spoke to Justin, she heard God say, “There is the father of your children.” It was an answer to her prayers. We were married exactly one year later on the date we first met.
Our Home & Pets
Our two-story Indiana home sits back from the road on ten wooded acres. We have a basement and large school room for homeschooling. The covered front porch and gazebo off the back deck and patio provide nice shelter. We like gardening in our garden and greenhouse, caring for our pets, playing, and hiking. Outside pets include two golden retrievers, two cats, four rabbits, and about twenty (some are still hatching!) chickens. Two guinea pigs are in an enclosure inside. Our community is a large town with a small town feel. We enjoy a variety of community events, parks, museums, and animal places. Many cities within an hour drive offer more options for family outings.
Our Extended Family
Justin’s family is within twenty to ninety minutes of our home. Justin’s mother lives closest and is our child care provider for date nights. Justin’s sister is married and has an eighteen-month-old daughter. Justin’s three aunts and grandmother are farther away, but we gather several times a year for holidays and birthdays. Thanksgiving is our biggest family gathering with Justin’s family.
Rebecca’s family includes her parents, brother, sister-in-law, and three nieces. They live in Missouri, but we visit every five weeks. We enjoy playing games and eating home-cooked food. Rebecca’s parents live on twenty-three wooded and pastured acres with a few cows, two goats, four chickens, two cats, and three dogs. Her brother lives a mile away on a six-acre homestead. Missouri is where Rebecca was born and raised and where we met, so it has a special place in our hearts.
We celebrate our third son’s life with a butterfly release at his Missouri gravesite each May, when he was due to be born. Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, and birthdays are celebration times with Rebecca’s family. We enjoy recipes handed down through generations, homemade cookies, gifts, and movies.
What Led Us To Adoption
We first thought about adoption after our third and fourth babies were born too early to survive here on Earth. We prayed about it and felt that God was saying, “Not yet.” We went on to have two more children despite some high-risk antibody issues. We have continued to discuss adoption throughout the past several years. Seeing friends foster and adopt children and helping to care for them at church has made the idea ever present. We now feel God is leading us to adoption. Our four children love taking care of our friends’ young ones and are so excited to have a new baby sister. We have felt like someone is missing who is meant to join our loving 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!Return to Waiting Families
