dear expectant mother
We want to thank you for not just taking the time to get to know us through looking at our profile but for the courage, bravery, and selflessness you have in you to make one of the hardest decisions in your life. This is a very difficult, nerve-wracking, and probably awkward time as you are looking at prospective parents to raise your child. We would be lying if we said we were not nervous ourselves, not only because we hope you like us and choose us but also because we want to make sure we are everything you hope and want as prospective adoptive parents for your child.
As parents, we promise to love your child unconditionally if you choose us. We will provide them with fun, loving, and exciting experiences and memories. We promise to let them learn and explore what they love and who they are. We will let them be human and give them room to make mistakes, and we will support them and be there when they do. We promise to make sure they always know how much they are loved.
Thank you again for taking the time to get to know us through our profile, and we hope to be able to get to know you soon as well.

We are Amanda and Kiersten! We met online in 2014, had our first date, and have been inseparable since then. We were engaged in 2016 and married in 2018. Amanda is a project manager in the healthcare industry and has been with her company since 2015. Kiersten is a nurse and works at a nearby hospital. Kiersten has been a nurse since 2014 and has loved the job ever since starting. We are best friends, and we balance each other well. We like venturing out into the city to go to a sports game or one of our favorite local restaurants. We also enjoy hosting family dinners and BBQs throughout the year. Amanda loves sports and is a huge Philadelphia sports fan. Kiersten loves spending time with her family and friends, especially her nieces and nephews.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a three-bedroom townhouse in a lovely, quiet, and diverse neighborhood in Delaware. There are multiple schools within a ten-minute drive, and there is an elementary school a block away from our house. We both love animals, and we have a total of six fur babies. Louie, our shih tzu/poodle mix is our “people person” dog. Zoey is our German shepherd, and she is our big goofball. All our cats are rescues; Kiersten found Ralphie in a bush when he was a kitten. Dick Clark followed us on New Year’s Eve. Lucy was adopted from a local shelter, and Binx was adopted from our veterinarian’s office. We love spending time with all our animals and spoiling them with new toys and treats.
Our Extended Family
Amanda grew up in a very close family consisting of her younger brother, mom, dad, and mom-mom, who all lived together. She was also very close to her aunt and uncle. Amanda has so many fond memories of everyone being together for the holidays, especially Christmas, which is her favorite.
Kiersten’s parents are divorced, but her favorite tradition is their family Christmas party on her dad’s side. Her dad, his mother, and his two sisters were very involved in helping to raise Kiersten and her brother. Kiersten’s brother is married and has a son (11) and a daughter (8). On her dad’s side, Kiersten has five cousins.
Our chosen family holds a very special place in our hearts. Amanda has been friends with a group of girls since grade school. Through work, Kiersten has met a group of friends who quickly became family. They all have been so excited since we told them about our adoption journey.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have talked about wanting children since we were dating. We talked about adoption and fertility treatments and decided to start the process with a fertility clinic. After our wedding, we were so excited and thought it would be easy, but after six attempts, we realized it was not going to be easy for us. Throughout the process, we would always remind each other that we would end up with the baby that was meant for us. After an additional two attempts, we started talking about adoption. We had talked about adoption before, but when we started looking into and researching it, we both felt this was what was meant for us and how we would end up with the baby meant for us.

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!
