dear expectant mother
Our hearts are breaking for you right now as you read this. You are trying to make a decision that affects the life of the person you love the most in this world. There is nothing anyone can say that will make that choice any easier. It is our hope that you are blessed with a family that will welcome you and your baby (as well as your family) into theirs and love and support you throughout your life.
We want you to find peace and happiness every day knowing your child will be happy, safe, and so incredibly loved. Right now we only know one thing about you: We know how much you love your child. There are no words to say the level of respect and adoration we have for you. We would honor the opportunity to learn more about you and what your desires are for your baby (both now and in the future). We would love to tell you more about the family you would be joining as well. Thank you for reading our letter, and we wish blessings upon you and your family.
We are a deeply committed and happily married couple with six amazing kids. Chris works as an engineer to help keep our country safe, and Kira is a stay-at-home mom. We go on many outings, such as the zoo, the aquarium, ice skating, and the pumpkin patch. We also love going on date night to our favorite restaurant and making dinner together. We enjoy traveling across the country as a family, and when Chris goes on business trips, his company allows us to accompany him, so we usually tag along. Our town is small, and there are always LOTS of community activities that are full of local flair. We have been to rodeos, parades, potato sacking championships, the state fair, livestock and horse shows—you name it, and we have probably been to it!
Our Home & Pets
We have a six-bedroom, three-story home located on a dead end street. It sits on a little over two acres that is full of trees. We have a huge playroom with a reading nook under the stairs and two art stations (a favorite with all of our children). Outside, there are apple trees, where we enjoy picking apples in the fall to make jelly and applesauce. The playground area in the back is one of the favorite places. The back field is home to four spoiled horses. We spend a lot of time playing basketball in our driveway. Our big dog (Major) loves to try to return the ball to us when we miss! Our barn cat (Binx) likes to follow the kids around when they are picking apples.
Our Extended Family
Our family is HUGE. We have so many people who cannot wait to add another baby to the mix! We have big family gatherings a few times a year, and we take turns hosting. We have LOTS of cousins so far and are still growing. We Skype for birthdays, and it’s a tradition for everyone to call and sing “Happy Birthday.” Kira’s mom always made cupcakes for her from scratch every year for her class at school, and that is a tradition we have continued ever since our first child started school. The birthday child always gets to help bake them, and it has always been a special time for each of them. This is a tradition our children love!
These traditions are very important to us because Kira’s parents have passed on, and it is a way for our children to remember their grandparents. Our roots run deep, and we love taking our kids back to where we grew up. Chris’s roots are in the Southwest and Kira’s are in the Deep South, so we always have a vast variety of things to experience.
Our Adoption Story
Adoption has always been something we have both wanted to incorporate into our family story. We knew before we were married that we wanted to experience parenthood together and wanted adoption to be one of the ways we did that. Kira was adopted as a toddler and has always had a deep love and appreciation for her birth mother (whom she had a relationship with while growing up) and for her adoptive parents. She knows firsthand what a difference a positive adoption experience can make in a family. We have experienced adoption with four of our children, and we can say it has been an amazing journey. We are hoping to adopt a newborn so we are able to experience parenthood from the very beginning together.

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
