dear expectant mother
As we write this, our hearts are pounding with excitement and emotion, and also with love and gratitude. We are Laura and Matt. We are so very grateful that you love your unborn child so much that you are considering adoption for them. We are parents, so we know the power of unconditional love. It is a power so strong we put our child’s needs before our own. We also know that this must be the most difficult decision you have ever had to make. Our hearts go out to you, and we are here for you as you go through this process.
We hope you will consider us as a family for your child. Such a gift would be an honor and privilege. We have so much love to give. We will provide your child with a safe, stable home full of opportunities where they will always be accepted for who they are. There's so much more to share, and we want to get to know you! We welcome an open adoption but understand if you prefer it to be closed. Either way, they will know that their mom made the most loving choice possible for them. We can’t wait to speak with you. Thank you so much!
Love at first sight. It’s a cliche, but it’s true. When we met during a break in grad school for our teaching degrees, we knew we were soulmates. Our first date was at Laura’s birthday, a dinner with friends in which Matt showed up with flowers. We shared a pizza. Twelve years later, our love is stronger than ever.
Laura loves Pinterest, arts and crafts, and party planning. She spends a lot of time outside and is energized by nature. She’s the mom that organizes our group’s play dates. Laura loves bringing people together. Matt loves playing sports of all kinds, and he coaches our son’s sports teams. He loves music and has played guitar for 15 years. He teaches middle school English. He’s that one dad amongst a bunch of moms at play dates and outings. Our son Hudson is five and loves football. Life wouldn't be the same without him. We have learned as much from him as he has from us.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home that is located in a very nice safe neighborhood. The elementary school is right down the street. Our house is full of life and energy. We’re a family that plays and laughs together. Out the front door is a big green belt where family football games, scooter rides, or nerf gun battles ensue with our dog, Kanga, chasing after us. At the end of the night, we all snuggle up on the couch to watch a show and read books before bedtime with Kanga in our laps.
Our Extended Family
Laura has three older brothers, an identical twin sister, and another sister who was born just eleven months later. Growing up in a big family is a gift. She never had to face life’s struggles without someone there to lend guidance, help, or just a loving embrace. Family has always been the most important thing in her life. Her parents live less than a mile away from us. Two of her brothers also live close by, and her sisters live in San Diego just an hour away. Laura has ten nieces and nephews around our son’s age.
Matt’s parents and brother live in Arizona, but that doesn’t stop them from visiting whenever possible. We frequently travel to the desert for visits, which often feels like we’re on a movie set. They often FaceTime and talk on the phone as well, so they remain very close. His brother, Ryan, has a family with two kids around our son’s age.
We are blessed to have a large extended family. It seems like it’s always someone’s birthday or there’s holiday to celebrate! Our get-togethers are full of laughs, board games, and our son’s 12 cousins running in different directions. Before long, we’re playing a game of touch football in the backyard. It’s exhausting, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.
What Led Us To Adoption
Family is everything to us. So after getting married, we were anxious to start our own. Never in a million years could we have imagined that we would face a battle with infertility. Out of five rounds of IVF, we were blessed with Hudson. Since Hudson was born, we’ve tried several more rounds unsuccessfully. Through our struggles with infertility, we learned something about ourselves. We are strong, and dedicated to make our dream of growing our family come true. We know, without a doubt, that there is a child who is meant to be a part of our family. Hudson was a miracle through IVF, and we are praying to be blessed with another miracle through adoption. Hudson can’t wait to be a big brother, and we know he will be a great one.

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
