dear expectant mother

Your unconditional love and bravery in considering adoption are granting me the best part of my life, and I will remember your sacrifice daily. You will always be honored in my family for your role in creating it.

As you are making your decision for your child, please know I will love your child unconditionally and treasure them beyond measure. They will also be included with the grandkids and cousins as part of a family that has been praying for them since before they were born. They will have books and music and kisses and cuddles every day of their life. As they grow, they will be able to find out what they enjoy through trying new activities, such as playing sports, learning an instrument, or traveling. They will be able to spread their wings but still have a place to land.

Your child will have every opportunity I can provide to become a kind, loving, and strong person. Your child will always know of your love for them, and you will always be with them every time they look in the mirror. I want to thank you for reading this profile and for all the potential joy you are granting.

About Me

After college in Arizona, I moved to Illinois 12 years ago, found a great job as an insurance underwriter, bought a house, and made a life here. I love animals and currently have two dogs, Zoe and Murphy. I joined a book club to make friends 11 years ago and count them as some of the dearest people to me. I am a volunteer on a women’s committee with my local food bank and attend church frequently. I have played piano since I was eight years old and look forward to sharing music with a child. I love to go for walks and prefer to be outside in nature than inside. I love to learn something new each year and have taken classes on writing, knitting, and golf, among other things.

My Home & Pets

My 3 bedroom Cape Cod home looks like a doll house. I live in a historic town in Illinois that has a great sense of community. I have a garden in the backyard and the dogs frequently eat all the tomatoes. My neighborhood is diverse in age and race with neighbors always outside walking dogs and riding bikes. A river runs through my town with a great walking trail and many public parks. When my nephew and niece visit, they love the splash pad in the summer and there is always a festival on the weekends.

My Extended Family

I am the youngest of two children in a family that values faith, community, and travel. My parents live in Arizona, down the street from my grandparents and a few hours’ drive from my large extended family. My dad’s family loves music, and many of them play the guitar and sing whenever they are together. My mom’s family members are great storytellers, and there is always laughter when they are together. My family encourages creativity and allows individuality to blossom while still being part of the pack.

My parents have been married for 45 years, are almost retired, and travel to see me every other month. On the other month, they travel to see my older brother’s family in Texas. My brother and his wife have a son and daughter who are looking forward to a new cousin.

What Led Me To Adoption

I think that family is a choice of the heart, not a biological outcome. My great-aunt is adopted, and she frequently says that she was chosen by my great-grandmother; she feels her adoption made her special. As I have gotten older and the desire to parent has become stronger, I feel that God has called me to adopt, and I have anticipated for years that this is how I would grow my 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!
