dear expectant mother
We are finding it impossible to portray that we know and understand all you are going through. We can only imagine that the world around you is presenting you with an overwhelming list of questions with little to no answers. Yet you are here, resiliently moving forward the best way you know how, always seeking the best for your child. Your courage and strength are humbling and deserve praise beyond comparison.
If chosen, we vow to love your child. We will promote kindness and generosity. We will also foster their curiosity, imagination, and a love for learning with the wonderful children’s books that already fill our house. We’ll encourage adventure by going on bike rides, walking to the stream to fish, and traveling. They will be surrounded by lots of family and have older cousins to play with. There will be lots of laughter as we make cookies, play games, and hang out with friends.
We feel honored you would consider us to play such an important role in your child’s life. Our greatest ambition is to build a family that provides unconditional love, support, and encouragement. May you find peace and comfort in your decision and journey.

Hi! We are Andy and Kim. We are both from the same area in Pennsylvania but actually met when living in Virginia. We have been married for a little over two years. Andy is hardworking, dependable, and loyal. He loves to put a smile on others’ faces, especially Kim’s. Kim is patient, nurturing, and giving. She is always trying to find ways to serve others. Andy is an engineer who works to improve processes in a manufacturing plant. Kim is a second grade teacher. She loves working with children every day and seeing them learn and grow. Kim looks forward to being a stay-at-home mom. She also directs musicals and loves theater and dance. Andy enjoys designing and building things, especially on his 3D printer for his model railroad. We both enjoy being outside, especially while hiking and kayaking.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a town nestled between two major cities and farmland. We love that we can travel to a major city in an hour and be at a farm in ten minutes. We have a four-bedroom colonial house with a big backyard, which is great for our puppy, Oreo. He is a playful and happy puppy who loves being around people. We have a vegetable garden where we are growing our own tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, and more. Our house is on a cul-de-sac where neighborhood kids play baseball and ride bikes. Within walking distance from our house, we have a stream for fishing, a bike path, a playground, and many downtown restaurants.
Our Extended Family
We both have amazing, caring, and supportive families we are incredibly close to. We live 15 minutes from Kim’s parents and 40 minutes from Andy’s parents. Kim has an older brother and younger sister, and Andy has two older sisters and a younger brother. Some of our siblings and their families live within a few hours, and others live across the country and even across the world. We have three nephews and two nieces, whom we love to spend time with and spoil.
Kim’s family owns a cabin on a lake about an hour away. We spend lots of time with the family there swimming, boating, and hiking. Kim’s aunts, uncles, and cousins and their families get together throughout the year. Sometimes there are 20+ people gathered. There is always lots of delicious homemade food.
Andy’s family loves being outside. His parents live in a rural area where there is lots of space to play soccer, go on the swing set, and ride bikes. They enjoy camping and making bonfires. His family has a tradition of going to the amusement park together, and they love riding the train, roller coaster and eating ice cream.
What Led Us To Adoption
Both of our families have always welcomed others and treated them like family. The joy of sharing life with so many people has given us the desire to be parents and raise a family of our own. Adoption was placed on our hearts during our journey of infertility. We have several friends who have adopted, and after hearing their stories, it was made clear to us that we desire to adopt a child. This journey has strengthened our relationship with each other as well as with God. We have been so blessed to have wonderful families and a great support system. We can’t wait to share our love with a little one.

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
