Hello, we are Amy and Lee. We are so thankful that you are considering adoption and have chosen to look at our profile. We would be deeply honored to welcome your child into our family. We are fortunate to have completed three adoptions. We are so excited and eager to know you and your child.
We are particularly excited about inviting you into our family. We are already a racially diverse family and are so eager to add to our family. We know that already having the experience of a racially diverse family gives us a unique opportunity to honor your child’s heritage. We live in a diverse neighborhood in a big city, so your child will have a culturally rich experience, valuing people from all walks of life. We are honored that you will be part of our family story.
Amy grew up in New Jersey and now works as a Nurse Practitioner. She helps people struggling with mental health problems and addiction. Lee grew up in California and is part-owner of an economic consulting firm. We met in college and got married in 2000. We adopted Jada from China in 2005, she is now in sixth grade. We adopted Aaron from Taiwan in 2007, he is now in 4th grade. We adopted Asher, as a newborn, in 2015 from Oklahoma City. He is now a busy toddler. We are all excited to have another brother or sister to love. Amy will take a break from her work to devote her full time and energy to caring for your child. We love doing things together as a family like swimming at the local YMCA, playing board games or just watching TV together. We especially love going out to eat together. We make a game of finding new buffets for everyone to enjoy. We love to celebrate birthdays and holidays together and with family and friends. Adoption day celebrations, which we call “Gotcha Days,” are particularly special because they are just for our immediate family.
Our Home & Pets
We bought our home in 2000. It is a three-story row house in a flourishing urban neighborhood in a big city. It has five bedrooms, a finished basement, a deck and shed in the back, and a beautiful porch and garden in the front. We walk to school, church, and playgrounds. We are a short bus ride from a downtown area that is full of shopping, entertainment, and cultural options. The neighborhood school Jada and Aaron attend is by far the best K-8 school in the entire city.
Our Extended Family
All of Amy’s family lives less than an hour away. Her twin brother has a wife and 7-year-old son. Her older sister is married and dotes on Jada, Aaron, and Asher. Her parents are wonderful grandparents to our children and see us for special occasions. All of Lee’s family lives across the country so we fly out twice a year, summer and Christmas, to see them. His younger sister is married with a 4 and 2 year old.
Our Adoption Story
We were blessed 11 years ago to adopt our first child. Two years later we completed our second international adoption. As Jada and Aaron grew to their school age years we thought our family was complete. Three years ago we felt a longing in our heart to adopt again. This time we wanted a newborn. This was new territory for us because both Jada and Aaron were a bit older when they became part of our family. In 2015 we were blessed with the birth and adoption of Asher. We were able to meet him and his birth mother shortly after his birth and bring him home at four days old. Again we long for an infant to bring into our family. We are excited for Asher to have sibling close to age to grow up with. We are so blessed and grateful that you will be part of our adoption story.

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
