dear expectant mother

Choosing adoption is a decision we have put a lot of thought into, and we know you have too. We know it is a decision that is not easy, especially for the mom, and that it comes with a lot of wondering, pain, and grieving. The emotions surrounding adoption is what we have talked about the most.

We want you to feel comfortable with your decision, and for us, that means following your lead. If you choose us, we will support any kind of relationship you want with your child. You would be giving one of the greatest gifts, and the least we can do is share that with you—if that’s what you want.

We will welcome your child into our home, giving them as much love and opportunity as we do our other children. We will make sure your child has memorable experiences, access to a great education, and emotional and financial stability.

We will celebrate your child every day and you for the incredible gift you’ve given. Thank you for considering us.

About Us

We are Mary and Alex! We met at work sitting next to each other at orientation. Over the next four years, we went from coworkers to friends. One night, Alex worked up the courage to ask Mary on a date, and the rest is history. Alex is a witty, smart, loyal person. Mary is kind, talkative, and patient. During the week, you’ll find us working from home. We’ve spent our careers in marketing and now work for separate companies. On the weekends, we like to go hiking, spend time on our boat, and spend time with our friends and family. Alex likes to learn. He is always reading and watching videos to get better at working on cars, home brewing, and cooking. Mary is always seeking out a creative outlet. She likes to craft, practice graphic design, and make home videos. We also have two sons who can’t wait to be big brothers.

Our Home & Pets

We are a family of four with one dog and an outside barn cat. We have two boys; Owen is five and PJ is three. Our dog is a bernedoodle named Jolene. Our barn cat is named Hobbes. We live on two acres in South Carolina in an area renowned for their school system. While the town we are in is rural, it only takes a half hour to get to a metropolitan area that has theaters, sports teams, museums, a theme park, and great restaurants. There is a lake nearby, which is where we spend a lot of time boating and swimming with friends and family. There are also some smaller mountains with great trails that get us outside and moving.

Our Extended Family

Mary is the youngest of four children. We are very close to her siblings, parents, nephews, and niece. Her sister lives ten minutes from us, and our nephew moved here for college. He lives on campus during the week but spends most of his weekends at her house. Mary’s oldest sister and her family live in Virginia, while her brother and his family live in Alabama. Despite living in different states, we see them multiple times a year. Mary’s parents are retired. They live in Alabama but are planning to move to our town in the next two years.

Alex is the oldest of two kids. His immediate family is small, but his extended family is huge. His sister and his parents live in the same town in Wisconsin. His mom’s side of the family is especially close. They have many cabins on a lake in Iowa where they spend most of their summers. All of the cousins are adults now with their own babies, so it becomes a compound of family fun. They are also a family that travels as a unit to all special family moments like graduations and weddings.

What Led Us To Adoption

We have always talked about adoption as a way to grow our family. There are two primary reasons for this. One is that we have seen Alex’s extended family be touched by adoption; we have three cousins who were adopted. The second is we have a lot of love to give. We are two people who have always opened our home to others. We’ve had a cousin live with us while she figured out her next step. We’ve also had two live-in nannies who were teenagers from Germany, and they became family to us. We believe a family comes in all shapes and sizes, and for us, it’s really about opening up our hearts to others when we can and as much as we 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!
