dear expectant mother

First of all, thank you so much for all you are doing for your baby. We can’t imagine the strength and courage it takes to consider adoption. Please know we want to be there for you and your baby in any way we can. It is our goal to make this process as easy as possible. We so appreciate that you are considering us as your child’s adoptive family. It is such a precious gift you would be giving us, one we can’t give ourselves.

We have been trying to start our family since we got married and are very excited to get started. If you choose us, your child will be the center of our world, where your child will experience unconditional love, safety, security, support, encouragement, and opportunities to pursue their own unique dreams and passions.

Relationships are vital, and we would like to have whatever kind of relationship you would like with us. Your child will know about you and all you did for him or her. We pray you make the best decision for you and your baby. Thank you again for considering us.

About Us

We are Mike and Kathy! A friend set us up thinking we would hit it off, and she was right! After knowing each other for a year, we got engaged and then married in October of 2014. We love to travel together and have been to Mexico, Dominican Republic, and Jamaica. We relish the chance to share that passion with a child. While spending time
with friends and family, we often cheer on our favorite sports team or try a new recipe to share. As an elementary teacher, Kathy is equipped to handle the needs of a child. Mike is ready to tackle any challenge our home may face with his even temperament and ability to fix anything. We make each other laugh but can share our hopes and dreams in a more serious moment.

Our Home

We live in a cozy two-bedroom home in a suburb. Our neighborhood has a playground and pond where we envision taking our child. We enjoy walking on the trail right behind our house, where children tend to play. We have chosen a home where students attend top-notch schools and value education. There are also many family-friendly activities we will definitely enjoy. We are counting on our vast connections in the area to guide us toward all the best spots for family outings.

Our Extended Family

Mike is from a large family. He has two older brothers, an older sister, and two younger sisters. Our nieces and nephews range from babysitting age to arriving in December of 2021. There will be many cousins for our future child to play and interact with since all but one of his siblings live in the area. Mike’s mom is also still in the area, as are many of his aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Kathy’s mom lives locally, and they enjoy weekly dinners together. Sunday Zooms have also become the norm since Kathy’s older sister and younger brother live out of state. Kathy’s aunts, uncles, and cousins also live out of state, but that just means there are many places to go on vacation so we can visit family.

We are close to our families and enjoy spending time with them. Texting, phone calls, visits, and vacations are something we do often for no special reason as well as holidays. Our family and friends are ready to lend a hand as needed to make this the most loved baby in the state!

What Led Us To Adoption

Since our wedding, we knew starting a family was our greatest wish. Unfortunately, due to infertility issues, we haven’t been able to yet. We are excited to adopt because, for us, it is more about being a family than how we become one. We feel our child is out there somewhere. We are just waiting to meet him or her.

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!
