dear expectant mother
We wonder if you are as emotional reading this letter as we are writing it. We can only imagine how you must feel as you search these letters, considering the best parents and life for your unborn child. All we know is your decision is a reflection of your deepest love. You have amazing strength.
It’s hard to know what to say to catch your attention. We will just speak from our hearts. We’ve wanted a child our entire marriage. When watching other children laugh, play, and achieve accomplishments, we secretly look at each other and think to ourselves, “If only ….. .“
What would life in our home be like? Your child will have parents who love, respect, and honor each other. Your child will experience a happy home and be loved beyond measure. Your child’s every step will be treasured. He or she will feel safe, secure, wanted, loved, and cherished. Your child will have loving arms to crawl into and parents who offer unconditional support. He or she will be raised with kindness, affection, a soft tongue, and patience. We will teach your child empathy, compassion, and respect.
Your child will have a healthy lifestyle and live in a faith-based home. We will travel. We will build strong, supportive relationships. Your child will learn to use his or her voice but also listen as he or she seeks to be heard. Your child will be praised, valued, nourished and will have the benefit of private school.
Thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your precious child.
We are Bryan and Lori. We have been happily married for 12 years. We are as different as we are alike. Bryan loves singing, writing songs, and composing music. He has a peaceful soul, and he is mild mannered. He is also very stable and even-tempered. He is rational and he makes no decisions without careful thought and certainty. Lori enjoys fitness, cooking, and reading, but her real passion is animals. Lori has a tender heart and loves to laugh. She is also a logical and rational thinker.
We both enjoy movies. Bryan likes comedies, while Lori likes docudramas and history. For music, Bryan prefers jazz and Lori likes country. We both enjoy travel, being with our friends, and working on house projects together. At the end of our days, we have dinner, we share our day’s events, and we spend our evenings with each other.
Our Home & Pets
We absolutely love our home and neighborhood. We have a Mediterranean-style, two-story home, with three bedrooms and two-and-one-half baths. We live on a quiet cul-de-sac. We love antiques as well as modern furniture, so our home is a combination of the two. It contains many pictures and items we have collected over the years from our travels. Our living environment is comfortable, homey, and welcoming. We live on the intercoastal waterway, with a beautiful view of the water. We have the good fortune to watch dolphins at dusk and dawn. The beach is a three-block walk. We have a cat. He is polydactyl and declawed. He keeps to himself, and when company comes, he is our best disappearing magic trick.
Our Extended Family
Bryan is one of eight children and Lori is an only child. Our family is well-educated and we are all happily married. All of Bryan’s siblings are raising children of their own. We have 14 nieces and nephews. Our family lives within a 15-mile radius of each other, including Bryan’s parents and Lori’s mother. We make a concerted effort to share monthly Sunday dinners to connect, talk about what’s going on, and allow the children to play, bond, and build memories. In between dinners, we hang out at other functions like plays, kids ball games, cookouts, and birthdays. Some of us also travel together. We take ski trips and vacation at our Tennessee cabin. Our entire family places huge value on moral characteristics like trust, honesty, honor, integrity, kindness, and empathy. We value education and have a strong faith. Our family is Catholic. Some of us attend church weekly, some monthly, while others attend on Christmas and Easter. We love and protect each other and we would go to almost any length to help another other if in need. We have a special and close family.
What Led Us To Adoption
Since marriage, we’ve known we wanted to be parents. We have had the great fortune of watching our nieces and nephews grow through the years, which has further fueled our desire for children. We tried for six years to conceive a baby. After six failed IVF attempts and two miscarriages, we accepted this was not our avenue to parenthood. We have taken time to heal and are clear and excited about bringing a child into our home through adoption to love and support. Our sister-in-law is adopted and has told us numerous times that her birthmother gave her the gift of life twice, first, through birth and second through choosing the loving parents who raised her. We want to be those loving parents to a precious child.

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
