dear expectant mother
We don’t believe words can fully express the magnitude of emotions, our gratitude and appreciation, and your self-sacrifice. Most of all, we want to thank you for even considering choosing our family to welcome the most precious gift a mother could ever bestow upon another human being. The past few years have been extremely difficult for us emotionally, to say the least, doing everything in our power to bring another child into our lives and praying for our dream to come true. We have so much love to give between us, our girls, our family, and our close friends that we cannot wait to finally begin our next journey together as parents.
We cannot even begin to imagine the difficult road that led to your selfless decision to do what you believe is best for your child, but we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for considering choosing our family to entrust with your child’s life. We have two amazing daughters who have already been emotionally “adopted” by their bonus mom, and we cannot wait to add a baby to our already happy, loving family. We cannot fully express the joy and love this child will bring to us and the unconditional love and happiness they will feel every day, but we can promise this child will be loved every minute of every day for the rest of their life.
We are both very outdoorsy, active people who enjoy a variety of sports and hobbies, have a goofy sense of humor, and love to laugh. We met playing co-ed softball together. We have two amazing daughters (Jeremy’s biological children from a previous marriage), and share 50/50 custody with their mother. We love including the kids (15 and 11) in every activity we possibly can. In the summer, we enjoy kayaking, camping, bag toss, volleyball, bike riding, basketball, soccer, and walking the dog together. In those long, cold winter months, we enjoy bowling, indoor bag toss, baking/cooking, crafts, board games, puzzles, and reading. We both have had long-standing jobs working full-time at the same companies for many years; however, Kate has recently switched her career from the Healthcare Field to a Paraprofessional position very close to home. We have been considering the possibility of one of us taking some time off or simply going down to part-time for a few years in order to be home more with a baby.
Our Home & Pets
Our home is in the same safe, small town where we both grew up. Between its tight-knit community and highly sought-after school district, we both agree it’s the perfect place to raise a family. We own a five bedroom home in a small, family-friendly suburb area of town where we live with our two daughters and our very spoiled chocolate Lab. Our town is small enough to walk the entire distance, which is perfect for when the kids want to ride their bikes to go swimming, get ice cream, or go play with friends. Both girls enjoy horseback riding lessons out in the country, and the youngest is involved in Girl Scouts and wrestling.
Our Extended Family
Kate has one sister, although as a child, she also had three step-brothers, one step-sister, and lots of cousins close in age. She had a neighbor boy she still, to this day, refer to as her “adopted brother” because he was always a big part of her family and still is. She is close with both her parents, who are both retired and consider Kate’s step-daughters to be their grandchildren and go out of their way to make them feel like a part of the family.
Jeremy has one sister and one brother, several cousins close in age he is still close with, a father who is retired and lives minutes away, and a mother who lives in a lake house about 30 minutes from our home with her husband. His sister lives nearby with her two kids, and his brother lives roughly one hour away with his wife and newborn daughter.
We both have many close friends with young children of their own who we consider to be our “other family” and enjoy doing many fun family activities together.
What Led Us To Adoption
Since the moment we fell in love, we have wanted to add to our family. We both adore children and spend most of our time with our many married friends and their young children. We tried for a few years with no success, but luckily we know a few people who have told us such touching stories about adoption that it truly moved us and helped us see our situation in a whole new light. Once our decision was made, we agreed it was the first time since our journey began that we both felt hopeful, as if it was meant to be, and we couldn’t wait to begin the next step in our journey together and start our adoption process.

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
