dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for considering us as adoptive parents. We are grateful to you for the opportunity, and we want to support you in any way we can throughout this process. We understand the challenges of parenting very well, and we will do our very best to give your child a wonderful life. If you are comfortable, we would love to meet with you. Thank you again!
All the best,
Mary & Josh
Before we married, we each took time for schooling, travel, and establishing our careers. Mary has worked for nonprofit organizations her whole career and is a director of fundraising for an animal shelter. Every day she works to help animals who need care and to find homes. Josh is a middle school teacher in health and physical education as well as a basketball coach for a local high school. Teaching and supporting young people is extremely rewarding. Our daughter was born in 2020, and we are beyond fortunate to have such a happy little girl! She is the light of our lives, and being parents is a dream come true.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a quiet suburb with a huge yard. It is one of the safest neighborhoods in the state, with great schools. Our daughter attends daycare, and the teachers are so caring and engaging. Our home has three bedrooms and a finished recreation room on the lower level with a walk-out patio. We have a playground in our backyard and plenty of room to run with our two little dogs, Holly and Ivy, who are very sweet and goofy.
Our Extended Family
Josh is one of six children, and they all have families of their own. We have ten nieces and nephews we have watched grow throughout the years. Mary has a very close aunt and uncle who are so excited to welcome another child to the family. While some family members live out of state, we do our best to see each other during the year, especially the holiday season.
We are also very fortunate to have a close network of personal friends who are incredibly supportive. Most of them are parents themselves to multiple young children, and a few have adopted also. We get together often for dinners, game nights, and bonfires as well as Fourth of July fireworks, “Friendsgiving,” and many other occasions.
What Led Us To Adoption
We began the adoption process before our daughter was born. We knew we always wanted to be parents, and it took some time before we were able to have our daughter. We are grateful for the opportunity to be considered as adoptive parents and are hoping for another baby to complete our family.

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
