dear expectant mother
There is no denying that this is an emotional process. Thank you doesn’t seem like a strong enough thing to say, and “I’m sorry” will not take away the pain of this selfless decision. If you choose me, I will forever pray for you and will cherish your child every day of my life. Their smile, their eyes, and their personality will all be from you. Please know that the following promises I make from the bottom of my heart:
I promise to embrace and encourage your child to pursue their dreams, chase the horizon, and always be the best they can. I was raised to believe I was strong, independent, and courageous, and I will do my best to instill those same qualities in your child.
I promise to make sure your child knows where they came from. I will speak of you only in the highest regard and make sure your child knows your selfless decision is the only reason we are a family. When your child is ready, we will have conversations, and it will be embraced and celebrated in our home
I promise to love your child with my whole heart. I feel in my soul I was destined to be a mother, and motherhood doesn’t come in one shape or size. You are a mother just as much as I will be, and that love is unconditional, is unwavering, and will last a lifetime.
Being a NICU nurse, babies have been a major part of my life for a long time. I’m ready to take the next step toward having a baby of my own. I was born in Alabama, but raised in Missouri with a loving and nurturing family. After high school, I attended college at a University and ended up graduating with three different degrees but found my true calling in nursing. After a few different nursing assignments, I dedicated my heart to the women’s services field. A lot of my career has been in labor and delivery helping mothers bring beautiful babies into the world. However, now I put my focus into caring for the most tiny and fragile patients in the neonatal ICU. Nursing allows me to have a great work–life balance, which I fill with many activities and hobbies. I enjoy cooking, hiking, CrossFit, traveling, crafting, and spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy chill weekends just spending time relaxing on the couch at home. My life is good and will be even better with a baby to bring along for the ride!
My Home & Pets
A few years ago, I relocated and established roots in Nevada to be closer to my friends and family. I built my dream home with plenty of extra space for a baby! I’m in a gated community in the suburbs close to many fun, child-friendly activities. My best friend and her family live right down the street. They have a two-year-old I truly consider my nephew, and I have spent a lot of time exploring parks and doing indoor and outdoor activities with him. Within driving distance are major attractions, including Disneyland, the Pacific Ocean, the Grand Canyon, and snow-capped mountains. The school district is great, but there are also many charter, magnet, and private schools, allowing options to ensure the best education. I also have a small Maltese dog, Bella, who is basically a little five-pound cotton ball.
My Extended Family
My family and friends mean everything to me. They are who I am, and I love spending time with them. I, like many, am a child of divorced parents. Although there were trials and tribulations, we are now one giant, blended, happy family. My mom is the most important person in my life. She is my rock and my guiding light. She has been there with me through all life’s challenges and cannot wait to become a grandma; she’s even picking out her “grandma” name already! I am the oldest of five children, and while my siblings haven’t started their families yet, I am “Auntie” to my best friend’s son, who I don’t think has any idea we’re not actually related.
While some of us are near and some are farther away, we make every effort to stay in frequent communication and spend as much time together as possible. Thankfully technology has made it easy to keep in constant touch through social media and FaceTime. We go big for the holidays! Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, and the 4th of July are all cause for huge celebrations and so much food! We love cooking and baking together and making the entire kitchen a giant mess! Once a year, we take a special vacation somewhere fun, usually the beach but sometimes a new city or a snowy escape. My friends and family could not be more excited for a new little baby to bring along on all our adventures!
What Led Me To Adoption
Being a mother is something I have always dreamed about. The journey in life doesn’t always lead us down the path we envision. I struggled with infertility for many years and, with the help of my doctors, eventually came to the realization that I would not be able to carry a baby myself. While I haven’t met the man I want to marry and raise this child with, I am confident when I do, he will know exactly how to love us and will fit into our life perfectly. My family has already been blessed with the gift of adoption, both as adoptive parents and birth parents. I have always known that a family is something I want, and families come in many shapes and sizes. Because of you, that dream could finally come true, and my heart is overwhelmed with joy, gratitude, and thankfulness.

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
