dear expectant mother
We are truly humbled by the unconditional love you have for your baby. We know choosing the perfect family to raise and love your child is an incredibly difficult and important decision, and we will be forever grateful if you consider our family.
We are so excited to welcome a child into our family and cannot wait to meet him or her. Our son asks every day when the baby is coming and always insists on buying the baby a toy whenever we buy him one. Yesterday, the baby got a rubber ducky with sunglasses for bath time.
We promise we will surround your child with love and ensure they have every opportunity to pursue their passions, and we will give them a world-class education. We will spend vacations laughing at Disney World, dipping our toes in the ocean, roasting marshmallows when vacationing in our camper, and enjoying new cultures and cuisine as we travel the world. We will spend holidays with grandparents and extended family watching the Thanksgiving Day parade while we fry the turkey or eating just one of Santa’s cookies while Daddy reads The Velveteen Rabbit.
We will read stories and sing songs every night before bed, and we will tell your child every day how much you loved them. We are so grateful for your courage and cannot wait to meet you and your child.
We are both active-duty military officers. Zach is a pilot, and Kelly is a lawyer. We are an energetic family of five: two adults, one child, and two dogs. We love outdoor activities, world travel, food, music, and spending time with our family. We live by the motto “work hard, play hard.” While we work, our son and our future child will attend the award-winning KinderCare early childhood education program, located just two miles from our house. They teach a second language, cooking, soccer, dance, and phonics. When we play, we take advantage of the myriad of museums, outdoor activities, and parks near our house. We visit Disney World at least every other year and make it to a beach on the years we don’t do Disney. We also love traveling around the world, where we can immerse ourselves in new cultures.
Our Home & Pets
We have a 6,500-square-foot, four-bedroom, four-bath home with a library, a fenced back yard, a playroom, a basement with a drop-down movie screen that is perfect for watching Disney movies, and a fantastic view of the Rocky Mountains. We share our home with our two dogs, Echo and Daisy. We adopted Daisy in Korea and Echo in Alaska. They love our son, James, and all three are frequently found cuddled up on the “big cozy chair” in the library.
Our Extended Family
We have two sets of grandparents who cannot wait to meet their new grandchild. Over the 11 years we have been together, our families have grown close, and we frequently vacation together.
Kelly is an only child, and her parents are so excited to have a second grandchild to spoil. We take frequent beach vacations with Kelly’s cousins, who all have young children. Zach has one brother. He and his wife have a little girl, who would love another cousin to play with. They live near New York City, so we visit them frequently to connect and enjoy the art and culture of the Big Apple.
Holidays at our house are amazing, we decorate elaborately for both Halloween and Christmas and love sharing food, fun, and memories with both family and friends.
What Led Us To Adoption
Since before we were married, we talked about how blessed we were and have had a desire to share our blessings with both biological and adopted children. After a difficult first pregnancy and two trips to the hospital in an ambulance, Kelly was advised against having more children, even before James was born. To us, this was not a sad realization but a recognition that we would have an opportunity to grow our family through the miracle of adoption. We know we have the love and financial well-being to provide for a child as well as the unwavering support of friends and 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!Return to Waiting Families
