dear expectant mother
I dream of someday playing at the local park on a breezy day and holding my babies’ hands as we swing and laugh the day away or making smores under the stars as the trees blow and the wind whispers. Becoming a mom and changing diapers and warming bottles has been something I’ve wanted since I was a young girl. Weekends spent babysitting filled my heart with future plans of a place my babies acould call home as they explore the world and spend their days being held, kissed, and told they are beautiful.
I am ready for a second bundle of joy in my loving arms. Their room will be colorful and quiet, and the house will be a place where dreams come true. One of the biggest things I can be thankful for is that I don’t have to put my career first anymore after more than 20 years in the military. My dream of becoming an adoptive mom began in 2009, during my first trip to Afghanistan. So thank you for considering me, from the bottom of my heart to yours.
When I was 21, I left for the military to earn money for college. While there, my peers said I had a strong will, caring heart, and positive attitude and said I made the place better. While serving, I became a first sergeant and took care of people and their families. Because of my compassionate heart, I would respond to awful family accidents and events but thankfully got to respond to good news in military members’ lives too. I loved being a first sergeant since I love caring for people. I’m retired military today, and I humbly put the uniform in my closet. It’s time to be home in America, raising children as a stay-at-home mom.
My Home & Pets
There is plenty of room to enjoy time together in the large playroom. Each child will also have their own school room that’s separate from their own bedroom. The four bedrooms and large den provide security and comfort in this brand new neighborhood. The two cuddling kitties purr and snuggle as the evening comes to an end. The new puppy finds a nice pillow bed to ball up in. The neighbors have fun outside together, and we are like family. The paved road is ideal for bike riding or roller skating. Our roads are also not a thoroughfare, making this a safe place to raise your beautiful baby.
My Extended Family
I have lots of cousins since both sets of grandparents had six children, who all had at least two to five kids themselves. I grew up being surrounded by cousins, aunts, and uncles.
Each year we do an early Thanksgiving gathering, share in a huge meal, say what we are thankful for, and have an egg toss—raw eggs for the older generation and hard boiled for my younger cousins. If you win, you get a prize. Also, if you bring canned goods to donate, your name goes in a jar for other prizes.
On Christmas Eve when I was a child, we would show up at Grandma’s house, and the table would be filled with goodies, homemade candies, and finger foods. The decorations were beautiful, and spending time with family filled our hearts with so much love. The next morning we would open presents, eat homemade donuts, and ride our new bicycles or play with our new toys. We were not rich growing up, but we were glad to have what we did.
What Led Me To Adoption
Adoption gives me hope to grow a family of my own. I love my large family and all my cousins. I have cousins who are adopted and cousins who have adopted. I always knew I was going to adopt a couple children after I retired from the military. It never mattered to me what their ages were or if they were related. I just want to grow my family, and raising your baby would make my dreams come true. I so want to adopt, and now is the time.

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
