dear expectant mother

We know this must be the most difficult decision you have ever had to make, and we feel so honored that you are considering letting us go through this journey with you. You are strong, brave, and selfless, and we will raise your child to share these same qualities.

We promise to love your child with all of our hearts. We promise to always be your child’s teachers, nurturers, protectors, and best friends. We promise to teach your child to be brave, honest, and kind-hearted. We promise to begin each morning with laughter and end each day with bedtime stories and goodnight kisses. We promise to be there not just for the first steps, dance recitals, ball games, and graduations but also for the bruised knees, strike-outs, and heartbreaks. Most of all, we promise that your child will always come home to a house full of love.

We feel so blessed to have found in each other a best friend and soulmate. It would be an unimaginable gift to also become loving parents. We will support and respect you through every step of this journey and will honor your wishes as we go through this together. Again, thank you so much for considering us for this incredible responsibility.

About Us

Hi! We are Leah and Sean. We met when Sean moved to Leah’s city to complete his medical training. We quickly fell in love over our shared passion for music, travel, board games, and food and were married a few years later. Leah is a pediatric nurse who started her career working in a pediatric intensive care unit and now works in a pediatrician’s office helping new parents adjust to parenthood. Sean loves Leah’s nurturing nature, kindness, and optimism. Sean is an internal medicine physician in a hospital. Leah loves Sean’s playful sense of humor, easygoing attitude, and kind heart. When we’re not working, Leah spends long hours reading and drinking coffee on our patio, and Sean is likely to be found playing his drums or guitar or experimenting with a new recipe. Our favorite way to spend time together is taking our dog, Beacon, for long walks around our neighborhood.

Our Home & Pets

We own a three-bedroom condo in a beautiful historic neighborhood in our large Midwestern city. We fell in love with our neighborhood for its diversity, culture, and history. Our neighborhood is safe, is full of young families, and has a park on almost every block. We have access to world-class schools, museums, zoos, and restaurants. We live here with our sweet six-year-old dog, Beacon, that Leah has raised since he was a puppy. Our favorite family activity is taking Beacon for long walks through the farmer’s market every Sunday, where he gets spoiled with treats. We can’t wait to be able to include your baby on our Sunday strolls and to play at the many playgrounds nearby.

Our Extended Family

We both come from large, close-knit families. Leah has three sisters and a step-sister who are her best friends in the world. They and her parents live in a nearby suburb, and we often see them on the weekends or will meet for dinner in the city. Sean is equally close with his two brothers and sister. His youngest brother lives right down the road, and we see him almost daily. Leah’s oldest sister has two young sons who love when Auntie LeLe and Uncle Sean babysit.

We both remember growing up with fun, chaotic reunions, birthday parties, and holidays with our cousins and siblings, and we can’t wait to recreate those memories with our child. Our nephews and young cousins can’t wait to have another playmate!

Both of our families are very excited about our plan to start our own family through adoption and have been extremely supportive. Leah’s parents, Poppy and Nana, love being grandparents and are ready to babysit and spoil another grandchild. Sean’s dad can’t wait to be a grandfather and knows that Sean’s mother would be overjoyed for the new addition.

What Led Us To Adoption

We’ve both always wanted to create our family through adoption. We even talked about it on our first date! Because of a genetic condition we don’t want to pass on to a biological child, we’ve known since early on we were destined to be adoptive parents. While working in the hospital, Leah would often take care of children that were in the process of being adopted. She was always inspired by the birth family’s selfless choice and so happy for the child and adoptive parents. Adoption was cemented into her heart in those moments. Sean’s best friend growing up came from a happy adoptive home, and this has always strongly shaped his understanding of what it means to be a family.

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!
