dear expectant mother
To a Loving Mother:
We are so happy and humbled that you took the time to review our profile. Words cannot express how much respect and admiration we feel toward you for making this difficult, selfless decision. Every adoption is different, so we want you to know we will be here for you in whatever way you would like. We would be honored to be part of your journey.
If you entrust us to be your child’s parents, we promise to give them the best life possible. We will do that by giving them two parents who love each other and will model a healthy, loving relationship. They would also be getting a very large extended family whom they will spend a lot of time with. From themed movie nights to cookie decorating, pumpkin carving contests, annual Christmas tea, etc., we truly enjoy every moment and tradition spent with family. This baby would also be getting a big brother and sister who can’t wait to teach them all kinds of cool things. We will give them access to wonderful educational opportunities and take them to experience different cultures through our love of traveling. We would share our love and passion for the outdoors both here and on our summer trips to Alaska. Most important of all, this child would always know they are safe and so very loved.
Our love story began with a chance meeting on St. Patrick’s Day in 2010 when mutual friends invited each of us to a group event at a local pub. There was an instant spark, and after that night, we were inseparable. We just celebrated our tenth wedding anniversary and still consider each other our best friend. Matt is an outgoing social butterfly who enjoys playing drums, softball, music, and watching movies. He works as an X-ray technician, but his true passion is being the king of dad jokes. Katie is competitive and charismatic. She enjoys riding bikes, sports, hiking, gardening, and trying new things. She works as an ICU nurse and is the self-appointed family organizer. As a family, one thing that is incredibly important to us is travel. We have been fortunate to be able to live in and visit some truly incredible places.
We live in a four-bedroom, two-story house with a finished basement. Our backyard is one acre, is fully fenced, and backs up to woods. We spend a lot of time playing on the basketball court or in the sandbox and sitting by the fire pit making smores. We have an extremely loving cat (Kitcat) who doesn’t know a stranger. We live in a family-friendly area surrounded by many parks and walking trails. We recently moved to Ohio from Alaska to be closer to family. As a compromise, we kept our home and will be spending the summers up there. Some of our favorite things to do there include fishing for salmon, watching the Northern Lights, hiking the many trails, picking berries, and watching moose walk around town.
Our Extended Family
Our family is thrilled about us adopting again. We both have large, loving families that can’t wait to meet another new member. There are many aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, etc. This new little one has a lot of cousins who can’t wait to meet them!
Matt has two younger sisters. The middle sister is married, and they have two little boys (ages two and seven months). His youngest sister just recently got married and moved to Florida. Matt’s mother (aka Mimi) lives very close and is always ready to play!
Katie has a younger sister and brother. Her sister is married, and they have a three-year-old little boy. Her brother serves in the military and is married to a veterinarian. Katie’s mother (aka Nana) and father also live very close and spend a lot of time at the house playing with the kids.
Our Adoption Story
We had always dreamed of having a large family, so when Katie had to have an emergency hysterectomy following our son’s birth, we felt that dream was over. It wasn’t until a few years later that adoption touched our lives through a family friend. At that point, we knew it was the right path for us. We found Angel and started the journey to our daughter, who was adopted in 2020. She has been such a bright light in our family and has brought us so much joy. We have so much love to give another sweet baby, so we are back with Angel to complete our family.

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!
