dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
The day we found out carrying a biological child wasn’t an option anymore, we knew someday someone else would be carrying a child for us. It has been eight years since we got that news, and since then, we’ve been praying for you! We have been through a lot together over the years as a couple, and we understand the feeling of things not going the way you plan. Life can be messy and difficult but also beautiful!
We can only imagine the feelings you have right now, but we want you to know we are grateful for your interest in us. We have so much love to give and cannot wait until the day we are called parents. We know this decision cannot be easy, but we honor and respect you and your birth plan.
If you choose us, we want to put your mind at ease and let you know we will take care of your child and love them endlessly. We will love them unconditionally no matter what, hug them when they are sad, kiss them when they have a boo-boo, listen to them when they need to talk, and always check for monsters under the bed! We want nothing more than to start this journey, and we hope to go through it along with you!
We met at church when Seth was 12 and Kristina was 14. Growing up, we were great friends, and as time went by, that friendship grew into something much deeper. We've been married for 14 years now and love the life we have built together. Seth has been working as a nurse at a pain and neurological specialist office for over ten years and is amazing at his job. He has a huge heart and a strong work ethic, and he loves what he does. Kristina has her own cleaning company and built it from the ground up ten years ago. She loves getting to know new people and loves helping those in need. On our downtime, you can find us working on a house project, spending time with family or friends, or just chilling with the pups on the couch.
Our Home & Pets
In 2011 we bought a cute little three-bedroom, two-bath rancher on just under an acre of land in a very small country town in Maryland, where everyone acts like they know you. We love our neighbors and have a very nice relationship with them all. Every morning the roosters crow all over town in unison. We have a nice big backyard where our two dogs, six outdoor cats, and 20 chickens all run around and play. The only thing missing is a couple little people to join them! We spend a lot of time outside in the garden or inside working on our next project. DIYing runs on both sides of our family, so we always have a new project to tackle.
Our Extended Family
We both come from very large and close families. Seth's parents have been married for 36 years, and his brother and his wife have three children, with one on the way! Kristina’s parents have been married for 40 years, and she has a sister who is married and working on building a family, possibly through adoption as well. We live within 15 minutes of our families, so we see them all the time. It isn’t unusual for us to get together for a game night on a Friday or Saturday evening with cousins or to go hang out and watch a movie at the in-laws’ house.
We have lots of aunts, uncles, and cousins and see them all multiple times a year; all live close by as well. Every year Kristina’s family has a reunion. T.hey all go to a different state, and over 50 people attend every year. We split up our time evenly on holidays and enjoy our traditional meals for each one. Kristina’s mother loves cooking her famous turkey dinner on Thanksgiving and Christmas, while Seth’s mom loves having a more casual Christmas in our Christmas PJs, drinking hot apple cider by the fireplace and watching A Christmas Story
What Led Us To Adoption
As soon as we got married, we knew we wanted children and a family of our own. To say our journey has been difficult is an understatement, but if we could do it all over again, we would because the journey has led us to this point; we know we are just one step closer to building the family we have always dreamed of. Looking back over the years, we have no idea how we made it through the times we did, but each failed attempt brought us closer and closer together. We believe everything happens for a reason, and we know God has a special child just for us. We have so much love to give and can’t wait to see what God has in store for us through adoption.

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
