Thank you for taking the time to read our profile. We realize this must be a difficult decision for you. We truly feel it’s courageous and loving for you to consider an adoption plan for your precious child. We sincerely believe that adoption is a wonderful gift and we admire you so much for considering it. We are honored that you may consider us. We do not take your consideration lightly. Know that we have so much love to give and we hope that you will allow us the opportunity to share that love with your child. If we are blessed with a second child, if you choose us, know that he or she will be raised in a loving home and that we will continue to raise your child with faith in God.
We are Lisa and Don. Lisa is originally from a small town in Maine. After high school, she joined the Air Force. When her four-year enlistment was completed, Lisa moved to Tennessee to finish college. In May of 1999, she earned her bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice. Lisa made the decision to join back up in the Air Force as a traditional guardsman while working full-time with Southwest Airlines. In 2013, Lisa was given the opportunity to take a position with the Air National Guard full-time. She knew that being in the military full-time would be the best decision for her family.
Don is originally from Vernon, New Jersey. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Sports Management and worked at the Miami Dolphins Training and Ticketing facility. In 2005 he moved to Nashville, TN and took the US Post Office exam. He passed with high marks and is now currently working for the US Post Office. Along with being a mail carrier, he is also a union representative for his fellow workers.
Our Home & Pets
We currently live in a four-bedroom home in a nice subdivision where everyone is super-friendly. There are plenty of young children on our street for our daughter Alex to play with. We love the fact that there is a great mix of ethnicities among the families, along with all different age groups represented. There are also four local police officers who live in our subdivision, so it’s definitely a safe neighborhood as well.
We love animals. Currently, we only have one cat who is almost 17 years old.
Our Extended Family
I don’t think we have enough space to list everyone in our lives that we consider family. We have Don’s sister Jaymie, Don’s brother Jeff, and Lisa’s sister Michelle. We have a great-grandfather, aunts, uncles, cousins, and nieces. But not all of our family is blood-related. We have surrounded ourselves with extraordinary people who have such big hearts and at a moment’s notice would do anything for us (and we for them). Everyone was so supportive and encouraging when we adopted Alex. They have shown her so much love. They all are looking forward to loving and supporting the next member of our family! Of course, everyone will continue assisting us by providing their guidance, sharing babysitting duties, and still occasionally spoiling a new baby at birthdays and holidays.
Our Adoption Story
When we found out that we couldn’t conceive naturally and wouldn’t be able to have children on our own, we knew immediately that we wanted to adopt. Becoming parents was and is something that we both have always wanted. In 2013, we started the adoption process and in February 2014 we were blessed with a beautiful baby girl. We named her Alexandra (Alex). She is now about to turn four and she is quite a little mommy’s helper. She has a great personality and will make a wonderful big sister. If we are blessed with a second child, if you choose us, know that he or she will be raised in a loving home and that we will continue to raise your child with faith in God. With our siblings and our extended families, we believe that you can never have too many people love a child. We will commit to love your child with unconditional love. Everyone is extremely excited as we are at becoming parents again. Alex is thrilled at becoming a big sister.

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
