dear expectant mother
We would just like to express our sincere gratitude for considering us and getting to know us a little bit. We cannot imagine how overwhelming things must be for you and we want you to know we are in awe of your strength and selflessness in making this decision. If you select us one thing you can be certain of is your baby will be entering a family of tremendous love. We have an amazing village of support, all of whom will be there to love and support this baby for its entire life. We cannot wait to share our traditions and passions with a little one. Liz can’t wait to read him or her Harry Potter. Ry can’t wait to show them Ghostbusters and The Muppets. And we both can’t wait to teach them about Legos! We also just cannot wait to watch this child grow and be there to love and support them no matter what they want to do or who they want to be.
If you are comfortable with it, we would love to have some sort of open adoption so we can share photos, texts, phone calls and hopefully visits throughout the baby’s life. It is so important to us that we all share a loving relationship so your baby can thrive and become whoever they want to be.

We have been together for ten years and we just celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary. This may sound like a brag, but we’re that couple everyone says they wish they were. Probably the most used phrase in our house is “get out of my head,” because at least once a day one of us says something about a half second before the other was about to say the exact same thing. Sometimes it’s a little spooky, but there’s nothing better than being able to look at your partner across a crowded room and know that you’re both thinking the same thing. We’re also the exact same type of nerd, as evidenced by our very over the top, yet surprisingly elegant, Marvel wedding. Liz has been a nanny to two wonderful children for the past ten years whom she loves like they were her own. Ry is a medical assistant at a local gastroenterology office.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a cozy four-bedroom, split-level home with a fenced-in backyard where we love to have BBQs, play games, and watch movies on our projector by the fire. Holidays are our favorite time of year. We love to decorate the house, whether its giant blow ups for Halloween or lots of lights for Christmas. Liz is always putting her DIY skills to use to make our home more US throughout the years. We live in a cute little suburban neighborhood with great neighbors and our house is exactly one mile from front door to front door of the local high school. One of our favorite things to do in the warm weather is to take walks over the bridge to the cute little city we live next to. It’s a beautiful New England coastal city where we can’t get enough of the views and the amazing food scene. We cannot wait for the day we have a little one to raise in our home and bring with us on our many adventures around town.
Our Extended Family
We are fortunate to have a supportive and loving family. Ry’s mom and sister live just two miles away from us. We love to enjoy summer afternoons in her beautiful garden and backyard. We can’t wait to chase a little one around in it. Ry’s father passed away unexpectedly at the end of 2019. We are heartbroken he will not get to see us become parents, but we will share photos and memories with our future baby, and they will know and love him as if they knew him. Liz’s family lives in the next town over. Her sister is three years younger and can’t wait to be an auntie. Her parents are divorced, but both are still a big part of her life. Her mom is excited to retire and spend time with her first grandchild, and her father is retired and can’t wait for us to be parents.
Halloween is our favorite holiday! We have a yearly Halloween party with all our friends and family. We love to decorate the house all spooky. Each year our collection of decorations grows. The neighborhood kids love to watch us set up all the decorations.
What Led Us To Adoption
Liz was born with a birth defect that would have caused significant complications for carrying a baby to term and to further complicate things she was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when she was ten years old. We discussed potential options and we decided that adoption really appealed to us because we want to provide a loving home to a beautiful baby and give them the best life we possibly can.

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!
