dear expectant mother
We will never be able to express how thankful we are that you are considering us as parents for your child. Without you making such a selfless, loving, and caring choice, we would not be able to have a family. We cannot imagine how hard of a decision this is for you to make, and we are filled with nothing but immense respect and love for you. We promise that if you choose us as parents, your child will always know who you are and what a tremendous sacrifice you made to ensure they were given every opportunity possible.
We cannot wait to bring a child into our home and watch them grow and develop their own personality. Whoever your child wants to become, they will be 100% supported, loved, and encouraged by not only us, but our entire family. We look forward to taking family trips to the beach and camping, as well as just enjoying each other’s company and playing in our backyard. We are excited to introduce a child to our hobbies, as well as watch them develop hobbies of their own. We will not only be there to love and support your child, but we will also be there for you during all parts of the adoption process and beyond. Thank you, again, for considering us as parents for your child, and for considering our family to become part of yours.
We are Ethan and Laura from Pennsylvania! We met three years ago through mutual friends, then matched on an online dating website. Less than a year and a half later, we got married! We instantly bonded over our love for sports, the outdoors, traveling, and the strong desire we each had to have a family. Ethan is a Sales Director for a structural and foundation company, and Laura is a registered nurse in a neonatal intensive care unit. Ethan is a laid-back, fun-loving person who enjoys playing golf, coaching high school boys’ basketball, and spending time in nature. Laura is a nurturing, caring, and energetic person who loves to read, swim, travel, and spend time with friends. We have a fantastic network of support, including our friends and family, who we spend the majority of our weekends with, and we can’t wait to join as not only a couple, but a family.
Our Home & Pets
We love our home and the neighborhood we live in! Our home is a three-bedroom, three-bathroom, two-story house in a large, safe neighborhood filled with families. Our backyard is fenced in and provides safety and security for our future family and our yellow lab, Boomer. Our community has several playgrounds and parks, some of which are within walking distance from our home. We feel very blessed that we live in a community with such kind people and that we are able to go to bed each night feeling safe. We look forward to spending time at our local playgrounds and parks, taking your child swimming at our neighbor’s pool, and introducing him or her to our neighborhood friends and their families.
Our Extended Family
We both have very supportive and loving families that we spend time with weekly. Between the two of us, we have two sets of happily married parents, one brother, two sisters, and one niece. Our siblings are currently growing and planning their families, just like we are, which means your child will have plenty of cousins to play with!
Both sets of future grandparents live within a five-minute drive of our home, and our siblings and their families all live within the same town. From the minute we told our families we were adopting, they were overjoyed. Your child will, without a doubt, grow up surrounded by their entire family and an immense amount of love.
One of the greatest benefits of living so close to our families is spending time together at the holidays. Both of our families get along wonderfully and always include one another in holiday plans. This means we never have to choose who we are spending Thanksgiving or Christmas with each year. In addition, each year both of our families take a summer beach trip, which include extended family and friends and are always the highlight of everyone’s summer. It is a time filled with having fun and making memories!
What Led Us To Adoption
When we began dating, one of our earliest conversations was about how we both wanted to adopt a child someday. Working as a NICU nurse, Laura has seen first-hand how wonderful the adoption process is, and Ethan has also had personal experiences that led him to wanting to adopt a child. As soon as we got married, we were eager to start our family; however, we quickly learned that our chance of having a successful pregnancy was very unlikely. After learning this, we dove into the adoption process without any hesitation, as it had always been our dream. We both feel like this is the way that God wants us to grow our family and we could not be any more excited for this adventure!

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
