dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
First, we want to say thank you. Thank you for your strength, your courage, and your kindness. We know you did not come to this decision lightly or easily. We want you to know you are giving us or another lucky family the greatest gift imaginable. We cannot begin to imagine what you are feeling, but we hope to be a support system for you in whatever way we can.
If you decide to choose us, we will give your child a beautiful life. We will provide an environment that is safe, loving, and happy and gives them the opportunity to be who they are without conditions or exceptions. We will encourage their creativity and originality and give them the space to discover their passions. Because Katherine was adopted, we understand the importance of talking about the process with our child openly and honestly. During Katherine’s childhood, adoption was always talked about as a gift, and this made Katherine feel special and loved. We will instill this in our child as well, and we will tell them of your selflessness and bravery in making this decision.
For us, adoption was always something we wanted to do. Our personal experiences and upbringings have made us passionate about the importance of adoption. We are so excited and honored to be considered in this process.
Levi: I am a fulltime professional artist! My main focus is portraits, but I also enjoy woodworking, metal working, and jewelry and furniture making. I do gallery shows to showcase my paintings and also enjoy teaching. My art is a reflection of my personality. I am very hardworking and patient when it comes to my work. Outside of my art, I love to be outdoors and do things like camping, fishing, hiking, or just walking our dog. I would describe myself as an outgoing and positive person with a focus on my family and relationships.
Katherine: I am a corporate litigation attorney. I would consider myself to be very confident and strong willed. I also pride myself on always being kind and compassionate. I love to be social and spend time with friends, but I also love a quiet night at home. When I’m not working, I love to play tennis, play with our dog, shop, and find new restaurants to try.
Our Home & Pets
We have a ranch-style house with lots of furniture handmade by Levi and a cozy, modern interior design. We spent months turning our house into a home and are very proud of what we have created. We have a big back yard where our dog loves to play. We are on a quiet street with lots of children, dogs, and friendly neighbors who look out for each other. We live two minutes from a great park and near many good schools. We love going to the numerous restaurants, games, and shows our city offers with our friends and family. We have a three-year-old dachshund, chihuahua, Australian shepherd mix who loves to play fetch and cuddle up after a long day. She is 25 pounds and loves people!
Our Extended Family
Levi has a big extended family he is very close to. He has two sisters, seven nieces and nephews, two grandparents, seven aunts and uncles, and about thirty cousins. A group of the family goes to the Sierra Mountains every year for a camping trip, which are some of Levi’s fondest memories. He plans to keep the tradition going with his own children. Levi’s family does a family reunion every few years, which gives him the chance to catch up with everyone. Growing up with his grandparents, they had sit-down family dinners every night, another tradition Levi will continue with his children.
Katherine has a small family, but they are very close knit. She has a father, four aunts and uncles, a grandmother, and five first cousins. Katherine has also made lifelong friendships with people she considers family, including two godmothers, four “aunts” and “uncles,” and three god-cousins. Katherine sees all the people who live in the same city regularly and travels to see those who are out of town. Katherine’s family has reunions every few years to catch up and grow closer. Katherine’s father is her best friend, and she sees him at least twice a week since they live just three miles apart.
What Led Us To Adoption
Katherine was adopted by two wonderful parents, and Levi was raised from a young age by his grandparents and aunt. So we both know a bit about growing up without our biological parents. For years we have discussed adoption and how special it would be to adopt. This will be our first child, and we are so excited to start a family and provide a safe and loving home for a beautiful baby.

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
