dear expectant mother
We cannot even begin to tell you how much we admire you, and we are so grateful you would consider us to be your baby’s adoptive parents. We pray for you and your baby every single day even though we do not yet know you. We can’t imagine what you are going through, and we hope you know how strong you are. You are making a tough decision, and we would love to be there for you and your baby in any way we can.
If you choose us, we will always be there for your baby no matter what and will encourage creativity, fun, and curiosity. All the while, we will provide a safe place where your child can be honest and open and can feel seen and heard every day. We have so much room in our hearts, and that includes space for you. We want to make this process as easy as possible for you and give you peace and confidence that we will love and protect your baby always.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about us and for considering giving us the greatest gift anyone could ever give.
With love and admiration,
Lauren and Ashley
Hello! We are Lauren and Ashley, and we have been together for 12 years and married for two. We met through a mutual friend and have been inseparable ever since! We love to make each other laugh and enjoy going to concerts. We’re looking forward to Kidz Bop Live! Ashley is a regional director in hospitality with a degree in healthcare management. She is the first in her family to graduate from college. Lauren is a personal trainer who competes in the bikini division of bodybuilding and is really passionate about what she does. She realizes that sounds annoying too. When we have time off together, we love to spend time at the lake and traveling to see family. We live in a beautiful suburb full of young families, and we have two sweet dogs.
Our Home & Pets
A little over a year ago, we moved out of the city and into a beautiful suburb! It was important to us to have enough space to grow our family and to be outdoors as well as to have enough room for our parents and siblings to come and visit. Our neighborhood is full of families. We’re pretty sure we are the only house in the neighborhood without little ones! We have two dogs, Mila and Henley, who love to walk by the lake and play in our backyard. During the summer, we love to go out boating as we live less than a mile from the water. We also love living so close to the community park that is within walking distance from our home.
Our Extended Family
Lauren: My parents have been married for 40 years, and I feel lucky to have such a solid family unit. I have two older brothers who each have three children. I am blessed to be the aunt of three nephews and two nieces! We have a very large extended family as well. Many of them live nearby and others are scattered all over the country, but we love to get together for as many holidays as possible. I am most definitely close with my mom, and I cherish the relationship we have.
Ashley: My dad has been married to my amazing stepmom for 28 years. I have two younger half-sisters, and we are extremely close. It has been amazing to see them grow into adults, and I love being their older sister. Most of my extended family live in Puerto Rico, and we try to visit them once a year.
What Led Us To Adoption
Lauren has wanted to adopt for as long as she can remember. Her family always put a lot of emphasis on what a blessing adoption could be, and she feels God planted that desire in her early on. When we met, she realized she was not going to be having a baby the “traditional way.” She felt at peace knowing her heart was already prepared for adoption! We have always wanted to be moms, and we cannot wait to add to our family. We have been preparing for this moment since the day we met, and we cannot wait to make our home complete.

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
