dear expectant mother
Thank you for considering us to be the proud and loving parents of your baby. We admire the selflessness and strength it takes to make the choice to create an adoption plan. We have always felt a pull toward adoption, so growing our family this way feels like it is meant to be. You would be giving our family the greatest gift we cannot give ourselves—a beautiful child.
It is important to us that your baby always knows what a strong and courageous woman you are and that you made an incredibly difficult decision to make their life the best it can be. We are open to whatever relationship you would like to have with us and your child, if you choose us. We would like our child to know who their birth family is and that they have so many people who love and care about them. We want them to know their amazing and special story.
A child will add so much love, laughter, adventure, and amazing memories to our lives. We promise to raise your baby with consistency, encouragement, patience, adventure, and, most of all…LOVE. We will encourage them to shoot for the stars and follow their dreams. Your baby will be welcomed into our entire family with open arms and hearts. We know we are meant to be parents and will love your baby unconditionally with all of our hearts and souls. We are extremely hopeful and incredibly excited to welcome a baby into our family.
We met when we were 17 and 18 working at a local restaurant. It was love at first sight, and we immediately connected. Kristen is outgoing, loves to help others, and is always ready for an adventure. Ryan is hardworking, fun loving, and always ready to lend a hand to someone in need. We were married in 2016 at a little castle on the river, tucked away in our local mountains. We are taking over Ryan’s family’s business, and Kristen works from home. This gives us flexibility in our schedules for family time and fishing trips! We love to travel, whether it’s the beach, river, or mountains. At home, we love cooking dinners, snuggling on the sofa, playing with the dogs in the yard, and spending time with family and friends. We are best friends who love spending time together no matter what it is.
Our Home & Pets
We live in our hometown near our family and friends. Our neighborhood is lovely and has multiple parks and playgrounds. The schools are within walking distance and are some of the highest rated in the state. Our newly renovated home is spacious, with an open floor plan. We have a gorgeous fenced-in backyard just waiting for a jungle gym! We have two additional family members, our dogs Lucy and Charlie. Lucy is white and tan, long and low, and loves to cuddle. Charlie is the newest member of the family and the sweetest pup ever. They both love long walks, chewing bones, playing tug of war, and loving their humans. Lucy and Charlie cannot wait to meet their little brother or sister!
Our Extended Family
We are so blessed to have the most supportive, loving, fun, and encouraging family. Family means the world to both of us. We make family a priority and love spending time together on holidays, birthdays, special occasions, and vacations. All of our family live within ten minutes of us, so we often get together for family dinners, soccer games, or fishing by the pond.
Kristen is an only child and extremely close with her parents. Her parents recently moved back to Colorado to be close to us. We are so excited they are close by again so they can join in on all of the family fun. We enjoy going on walks, playing golf, and taking beach vacations together.
Ryan’s parents live in the neighborhood where we both grew up. Ryan’s brother is married and has two children. Both are so excited to have a little cousin to babysit and play with. Ryan coaches his niece’s soccer team, and the whole family is always there to support them.
We have such an amazing support system in our family and close friends. There is an abundance of love to go around. They can’t wait for the perfect addition to our family.
What Led Us To Adoption
We’ve always planned on having kids and started trying immediately after our wedding. After about a year, we found out Ryan had a rare disease and the treatment would leave us unable to conceive. Once Ryan recovered, we were given many different options to start our family, but adoption always felt like the right path for us. Kristen felt a pull to adopt even at a young age. We always planned to adopt after having biological children, so adoption was our natural next step. We feel blessed and excited to be adoptive parents. We cannot wait to share all of our love.

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!
