dear expectant mother
Thank you for considering adoption. As someone who is adopted myself, I can only imagine the emotional toll this is taking on you to place your child with someone else. I am sure it is an emotional rollercoaster as you sort through profiles of so many families while looking for the best one to fit you and your child’s needs. I hope this letter gives you a look into my home and life to give you a better picture of the type of home I would provide.
I have always had a strong desire to be a mother. And being adopted, I have always known I wanted to adopt. I want to provide the same life my parents provided to me to my own children—a life filled with love, support, and adventures.
My heart is full of love toward you, and I would love to share your baby’s milestones with you. I love to document everyday experiences. I would be excited to share pictures and updates with you! If you are comfortable meeting me, it would be a pleasure to get together with you to let you know how much you mean to me. I want you to know how incredibly special you are as an expectant mother and as an individual!
I enjoy running, and I ran cross country and track in high school and college. I enjoy running marathons and have a goal to complete one in every state as well as every continent. I would also like to complete an Ironman at some point. Other hobbies include reading, traveling, going to sporting events (especially the Philadelphia Phillies), going to concerts, attending vegan festivals, taking my dogs for walks, and spending time with my niece and nephews. I am very honest, reliable, and dependable. Those closest to me have described me as insightful, witty, caring, empathetic, considerate, patient, determined, ambitious, adventurous, and independent.
My Home & Pets
I have a two-bedroom, bi-level home, and my backyard is spacious. I live in town, with a playground at the end of my street. There are a lot of youth organizations for kids in my town as well. There’s a local soccer club and a booster club program. I enjoy taking my niece and nephews to the local science center and trampoline park. I also live near hiking trails, amusement parks, movie theaters, and ski lodges. My parents and brother and sister-in-law live within a block of my house. I have two dogs: Carrie, a 19-year-old Jack Russell/beagle mix, and George, a 12-year-old Yorkie. Both dogs are great with kids as they spend time with my niece and nephews.
My Extended Family
My parents and brother live near me, and I see my parents daily. I spend a lot of time with my niece and nephews taking them to local events.
I am eager and excited to pass on family holiday traditions. My favorite holiday is Memorial Day. My family is very patriotic as both of my grandfathers served in the military. I also like it because it signifies the start of summer, which is my favorite season.
Every Christmas Eve, we attend Mass. My mom’s side of the family is from Italy, so we celebrate with the Seven Fishes meal. I am vegan, so I do a modified version of their meal. We then open one Christmas present. I spend Christmas Day at my brother and sister-in-law’s house with them, their five children, my parents, and my grandmother. My parents are members of local organizations that have Santa come deliver presents to children. I attend these parties with my niece and nephews. I am eager to bring my child to these parties as well as bake Christmas cookies and pick out our Christmas tree.
What Led Me To Adoption
I am adopted and always thought I would get married, have biological children (if able), and also adopt. Even though I have not found someone to start a family with, I still have this strong desire to be a mother. As a single mother, I would have a great support system in my family and close friends. I also have over ten years of experience working with children in a variety of ways: as a tutor, a child care counselor, a supervisor and program coordinator in residential treatment facilities, and a behavioral specialist. I spend time with my niece and nephews whenever I can. I am ready to be a mother, and because of you, my dream may come true.

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
