dear expectant mother
We cannot wait to meet you and your baby and to show you how much love we and our family have to give to your baby. If you take nothing else away from reading about us, our life, and our family, we want you to know your baby will be our miracle. We want nothing more than to shower your baby with love while we make everlasting memories and traditions.
Your baby will always know they are adopted; this is their foundation—the foundation you have given them. Your baby will be an important part of a strong family that values hard work, respect, and happiness. Your baby will be raised to get good grades in school but first and foremost to be a kid—to ride bikes with friends, go to the park, make mud pies, create sand castles on the beach, and change their clothes four times in one day because they’ve gotten dirty. This is how we were raised, and that is how we will raise your baby.
We will provide a loving, nurturing, caring, compassionate, and giving home for your baby. We can’t guarantee they will become the president, but we can guarantee you will look at their life story in 20 years and smile with pride that they are a good person with a good heart.
We look forward to meeting and getting to know you. We cannot wait to share this journey with you, in whatever capacity you want.
We met in Oklahoma after Justin was relocated for work. Our first date was a slice of pizza and hours of conversation and laughing. Since that first date, we have helped support each other through life’s challenges, including Shawn’s job change after 23 years with the same company and Justin’s adjustment to living away from his family in Kansas. Individually, we have our own quirks: Shawn is a self-admitted computer nerd, and Justin is the life of the party but secretly wants to be a wallflower. Together we are a strong team always working to lift the other one up and ensure success in anything we do. We live in a small town outside of the city, where Justin works for an energy company in the human resources department and Shawn works for a large event complex in the information technology department.
Our Home & Pets
Our home is a three-bedroom ranch on a quiet street with very little traffic. On any given day, you will see kids riding their bikes through the neighborhood and playing basketball in the street. Our fenced-in backyard is a blank slate to add a swing set, a jungle gym, or an awesome fort to play in. We are in the process of adding a garden we can’t wait to use to teach your baby how to grow his or her own fresh vegetables. We live in a small town with atop-rated school district and festivals during all seasons as well as concerts and movies in the park with face painting, bounce houses, and other kids’ activities.
Our Extended Family
Shawn comes from a family that is always there for each other no matter what. Shawn is known for his chocolate-covered cherries he brings to family gatherings but has yet to show Justin how to make them; he is saving this recipe to pass down to the new addition to our family. Shawn’s family will always find the time to have a game night; Rummy is the game of choice, but you have to be on the lookout for cheaters. Shawn’s nephews and niece are excited to have a little cousin to take on the golf cart at their grandparents’ house on the lake.
Justin comes from a big family full of strong and independent women, including his mother, who was a single mother. His family is close and never misses an opportunity to have a family gathering, whether it’s to celebrate a birthday or just because we came into town. With just five minutes’ notice of us coming to town, Justin’s family can have a full party thrown together. Justin’s family, like Shawn’s, loves having game night. Justin’s cousin is like a sister to him, and her five kids, all under age ten, are super close to us.
What Led Us To Adoption
Even before we met, we both dreamed about having a child someday. Since our first date, we have daydreamed nearly every day about having a child in our lives—making dinner and then curling up as a family on the couch and making each other laugh until our sides hurt from laughing so hard. Our friends and family are excited beyond measure and are ready to support our journey to parenthood.

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
