dear expectant mother
We are grateful that you are considering us as a family for your baby. Our hearts go out to you during this difficult and emotional time. We admire and respect your courage and selflessness as you put together an adoption plan for your child. We would be honored to raise your child in our home and to share our lives and love with him or her. The fact you are considering adoption shows the love you have for your child in putting his or her interests at the forefront.
While we will never be able to express how grateful we are for you considering us, we want you to know how much the gift of your child will forever change and bless our lives. We dream of our family going on vacations together, hiking, walking the dog, spending time at the family lake home learning to swim and ski, and spending time as a family around the dinner table. Your child will be embraced by our family with unconditional love and support.
We are open to whatever relationship you desire to have with us and your child. We plan to make sure your child knows what a remarkable mother you are and the depth of your love for him or her. We want your child to know about his or her journey and background. Thank you so much for considering us.
We are Chad and Kate! We met in college through mutual friends and started dating soon after. Chad even visited Kate on her semester abroad in France. We married nine years ago on the college campus where our friendship began. Kate is caring, generous, and fun-loving. Chad is thoughtful, hardworking, and goofy. We love spending time and seeking new adventures together. During the week, you will find us walking our dog, cooking, and discovering new restaurants and food. On the weekends, you will find us at Kate’s family’s cabin, playing games with friends, and hiking. We recently got a state parks pass, so we are always exploring new trails. For work, Kate is a Study Abroad Coordinator at a local university and Chad is a supply chain analyst. We both love our jobs because they provide us with flexibility and a good work-life balance.
Our Home & Pets
We recently built a spacious two-story house in a new family-friendly neighborhood. Minou, our cat, and Barley, our dog, love the new open concept house to lay in the sun and run around. We have four bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, and a large backyard with a deck. We live in a highly-rated school district with many educational opportunities. We live within walking distance of a regional park with trails, a beach, and a large playground. Barley loves the close proximity to the beach and trails and can’t wait to have her new brother or sister join on her daily walks.
Our Extended Family
Kate’s parents live nearby, but we usually head up to their lake to relax and spend time on the water. Kate has two sisters who live out of state. One is married and has two children. Even though Kate’s sisters do not live nearby, we get together at least once a year at the lake place. Grandpa loves taking his grandkids out on the boat. Kate’s parents plan to retire soon and can’t wait to be full-time grandparents!
Chad’s mom and sister also live out of state and are both married. Chad’s sister and her husband have two children. We enjoy getting together on the weekends or during the holidays. When Chad’s family comes to town, we enjoy taking them to new places, such as baseball games, the zoo, restaurants, and the beach.
We are fortunate to consider our group of friends as family. We play in a summer softball league with them and we get together often for game nights, dinners, and birthday celebrations. Our friends have been supportive throughout our journey to start a family and they can’t wait to have another kiddo around.
What Led Us To Adoption
We started our journey to grow our family three years ago, but we faced infertility. During our fertility treatment, we considered adoption because we believe families take shape in many ways. We have a great example of a loving family through Kate’s aunt and uncle who adopted two children that are both graduating from college this year. After failed treatments, we surprisingly found ourselves pregnant with triplets! Sadly, our babies were born too soon due to complications. We’ve always wanted a family, and we love kids. After much thought and discussion, we felt that adoption would be the best choice for us to grow our family. We have the ability to provide a loving and supportive home and we look forward to the joys of 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
