dear expectant mother
We are so grateful and appreciative you are taking the time to look at this little snapshot of our lives through pictures and words. We know you are considering an incredibly selfless, loving, but tough decision. We have no idea the emotions and thoughts that come with this decision, but what we do know is that your child will be loved more than life itself. We have an entire village of love and support waiting to shower them with love, kindness, and special memories.
We will always speak openly about your child’s adoption and plan to be positive and loving in our conversations about adoption and his or her journey. We will want you to also know how loved they are and how blessed we are.
The two of us have a marriage built on trust, honesty, loyalty, humor, and great communication. Having a family has always been in our hearts, and we are excited to make this a reality. As you process this monumental decision, just know we plan to provide a life of unconditional love, laughter, and special memories. We want to give your child the life your heart would imagine for them. They will always have our support and will truly know the meaning of family. Thank you for your time and consideration!

Our story started at a charity golf tournament in 2009. We have been married since 2011 and have been having a blast ever since. We feed off each other’s humor, we respect and love each other, and, most importantly, we communicate about anything and everything. Pat works as a sales manager for a local water works company, and Kelsey is a licensed massage therapist for a local physical therapy clinic. We are both incredibly lucky to have chosen to marry our best friend. We love having get-togethers and a house full of laughter and good times with friends and family. We enjoy cooking, golfing, learning, spending time outdoors, and playing games. We also love to travel and look forward to many family excursions. Kelsey is actively learning sign language and German and looks forward to sharing this with your child as well.
We love where we live in the Northwest! We live in a part of town near schools and parks that allow for bike riding, walks, and outdoor fun, but we are close enough to the city for concerts, sporting events, the zoo, family-friendly events, and more. We have the best of both worlds. We look forward to having a dog or two down the road when we know if your child has allergies to them or not.
Our Extended Family
We both have wonderful families! We do a lot with them, and we all get together for BBQs, holiday dinners, and family reunions. We love to get family, kids, and friends together to go to classic movies at our local theater, especially during Christmastime. We all dress up as characters from whatever movie we are watching. We have an annual St. Patrick’s Day party and have continued to use Pat’s delicious family recipes that would make his mother proud.
Kelsey has a sister, a nephew, a sister-in-law, two nieces and her parents that all live close by. Pat's sister, brother-in-law, dad and dad's wife also live close by. We both have a handful of cousins we spend time with whenever they are in town.
We have a lot of friends and family with children in our lives, and we are all looking forward to loving your child and incorporating them into all the fun activities we do together. We would love to provide your child with everything life has to offer as well as to instill the importance of charity, acts of kindness, and giving to others.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have both been touched in an amazing way by adoption. Adoption made it possible to have a family growing up. Kelsey’s brother and sister were adopted as was Pat’s mom and aunt. Many friends and family members have adopted children or were adopted themselves, so we are surrounded by support and encouragement. We truly feel family is not based on biology but on the love, memories, and village of amazing people you have around you. We will always speak openly about your child’s adoption and plan to be positive and loving in our conversations about their journey. We can promise you your child will be loved beyond words by an entire village of beautiful and kind souls!

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
