Thank you for taking the time to look at our profile. Hopefully, you can tell from our pictures that we are a tight-knit family and have the best friends in the world! They are all very supportive of us. We can’t imagine how difficult your decision must be, but we want you to know that we have been praying for you even before we typed this letter. We know that God is with you and your baby, and your decision is already part of His plan, no matter what happens. If you decide to choose us as the adoptive parents for your baby, please know that we will honor you and that we already have the highest respect for you.
If you choose us, words cannot adequately express the blessing you will add to our lives. Every day of our lives, we will give your baby our love, attention, support, guidance, laughter, and protection to the best of our ability. We will give your child everything he or she needs (maybe not everything your child wants but everything he or she needs). We are going to be completely open about the whole adoption experience, and your baby will know how much you love them. If you choose us, your child will know that you wanted the best for him or her. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for considering us as adoptive parents for your precious baby.
Hi! We are Marty and Kelli, and we have been married almost 16 years. Kelli is a certified real estate appraiser and has been employed for nine years as a state employee. She has been in real estate for nearly 18 years. Marty is a physical damage appraiser for a large insurance company and has been employed with them for 20 years. His job allows him to have a flexible schedule. We both like that our jobs allow us to be outside mostly. Marty has a grown son who lives nearby and who has blessed us with a handsome grandson. We have a small camper and love going to the beach, mountains, and lake every chance we get! We enjoy going out to eat and trying new foods but also enjoy a quiet night grilling on our patio at home.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a quiet subdivision located within close proximity of our town’s hospital, shopping center, parks, restaurants, activity centers, and our church. Our four-year-old home is a one-and-a-half story with four bedrooms and three bathrooms. It also has a fenced yard. We live on a circle, so we don’t have much traffic. This makes it nice for walking Luke. We adopted Luke from our local SPCA, and he is part Blue Healer-Lab mix. We also have two outside kitties, Mama Kitty and Penelope. Where we live has protected wetlands, so it’s nice and quiet. We have a family of hawks that were raised behind our house, along with owls, deer, and long-legged herons.
Our Extended Family
Marty comes from a large family and has two brothers and three sisters. All his siblings have kids and some of those kids have kids. It’s controlled chaos when we get together for family gatherings! We enjoy getting together with both of our families for holidays and birthdays every year, and we are planning a family reunion to include Marty’s family out of state. We all get along very well. Kelli has one older brother and three nieces (ages 16, 18 and 20). They all live about 30 minutes away. We get together as much as we can and usually hang out playing corn hole, going to Clemson games, or just grilling out together.
What Led Us To Adoption
We are not medically able to have a biological child. Over the past few years, we tried several procedures, but they did not work. We prayed about it, talked about it, and talked with friends and family. We happily decided adoption was our next step! We definitely felt God moving us in this direction, and we are both totally open to adoption! We have several friends who were adopted and several friends that have adopted. They all have beautiful stories that they shared with us, and we sure hope to have a beautiful story of our own to share too!

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
