dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mom,
We don’t know what has brought you to the place of considering an adoption plan, but we want you to know just how honored we are to be considered by you to raise your child. You have been in our hearts for years, and we have been waiting to hear from the woman who will become intertwined with us and forever a part of our family. We want to walk this journey with you in any way you are comfortable with, knowing that this child is yours and is only here because of your selflessness.
We are so excited to raise a child in our home full of love and laughter. We are a family who goes on frequent adventures together, whether camping, hiking, bike riding, traveling, or even something as simple as roasting marshmallows on a campfire in the backyard as a family. We cannot wait to share in all of these experiences with another child, and we are excited to show him or her all of our family traditions. We are not perfect parents, by any means, but we promise that your child will ALWAYS know they are loved and will feel safe and secure in our home. We will also make certain they know you, if that is your wish, and they will know of your tremendous courage and the love it took for you to choose us as adoptive parents.
Justin works as a CRNA at a community hospital, and Kristy is a former dental hygienist who is currently staying at home with our two kids. One of the biggest perks of Justin’s job is that he has a large amount of vacation time every year and usually works about 30-35 hours per week, which allows him the opportunity to be at home often. We truly enjoy spending so much time together as a family. We met in our high school physics class during our senior year, and we believe the strongest part of our relationship is that we were best friends long before we were a couple. We face all of life’s challenges together as a team, support each other’s dreams, and put in the effort it takes to make our marriage work!
Our Home & Pets
We live in a small town in Minnesota. Our house has four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, a large playroom, and a three-seasons room. It has plenty of room for family and friends to gather. We live on lakeshore property and spend time boating and fishing off the dock. Our golden retriever, Sandy, seems to enjoy the water the most, but we all enjoy going swimming when the weather is nice! We have a large backyard that has a playscape for the kids, lots of beautiful grass to run around on, and a small area for gardening. Everyone is incredibly friendly here, and there are plenty of outdoor activities all around to enjoy in this beautiful area.
Our Extended Family
We are very fortunate to have really great relationships with both sides of our family. We both have just one sibling each, but we have been blessed with many nieces and nephews and wonderful parents who have become the absolute best grandparents to all of their grandkids. We also have many cousins who are in similar life stages with young children that our children are growing up with and making memories with as well!
We live near most of Kristy’s extended family, and there are A LOT of them, so there is always something fun going on! We take frequent trips to Kristy’s family’s cabin in the woods, which is an outdoor adventure for everyone! We meet up with cousins and their children for camping trips, which is always a lot of fun. We also get to see Justin’s family regularly and enjoy our trips to see them.
Our family is very excited about us adopting and will love your child so much! Adoption has already been a part of our lives for several years because we have an adopted nephew. We also have several other family members who were adopted, so everyone is very accepting and excited for us!
What Led Us To Adoption
Our journey to adoption started before we were even married. We were unsure whether or not we would be able to have children because of suspected endometriosis, but we knew we wanted a family no matter what. We were both completely on board with adoption if we could not have kids biologically. Fast-forward several years and two biological children later, and we still have adoption in our hearts. We made the decision that any more children would come through adoption. We have watched close family members go through the adoption process and have seen both how challenging and rewarding it can be. We are incredibly excited to be starting our adoption process now!

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
