dear expectant mother
We are so blessed you would consider us to raise your precious baby. It has not gone unnoticed that your choice will take much consideration before coming to a decision, and we imagine it is not an easy decision to come to. You have displayed such selflessness and courage by taking this step to give your baby life and to choose the best future for them you possibly can. It is amazing how your decision will help complete a family that would otherwise be incomplete.
Since we know you are trying to decide on a family that will give the world to your baby, we want you to know we will love your baby with everything in us. We are currently raising our daughter, and she has been given the opportunity to follow her dreams in regard to extracurricular opportunities. She is in basketball, percussion at school, and the youth group at church. We spend as much time with her as possible, and we spend a lot of time talking about what is going on in her life as well as guiding her through obstacles she may encounter. We are extremely close and spend much of our time as a family laughing and being silly. Overall, we live a happy life, and we would continue to provide this type of home for your baby.
Thank you for considering us to raise your baby as our own.
We met 20 years ago when we worked at a Christian bookstore together. We dated off and on for 4 ½ years before going our separate ways. Matt had a daughter in 2006, and we later reconnected in 2010 before eventually getting married in 2012. Our jobs are both fulfilling as an accountant (Matt) and teacher (Stephanie), and we enjoy spending time together raising our daughter, Lilly. We love traveling and have been to places such as New York, the Grand Canyon, Canada, Florida, and Israel. We also enjoy having quiet nights where we hang out and watch something on Netflix. We are active in our church, and Matt occasionally sings on stage or leads lessons in our Sunday school class. Matt loves sports, and Stephanie enjoys doing crafts. We both enjoy spending time with Lilly and spending time with family and friends.
Our Home & Pets
Our home is located in a well-established and quiet neighborhood near some of the top schools in our district. Our home is a two-story, four-bedroom home with an open concept. Our neighborhood has a community pool, tennis and basketball courts, and an abundance of open space for a child to play. We aren’t the best at tennis, but we do enjoy going to the pool throughout the year. We love to host gatherings with our family, friends, and church family, and we want our home to be a safe place for our children, where they feel comfortable enough to bring friends over. Our two dogs, Zeke and Sadie, are loving dogs that enjoy playing with each other and cuddling with us.
Our Extended Family
Stephanie’s parents and older brother live on the other side of town. She has a very close family, and her brother is one of her best friends. Stephanie’s family is very engaged in our lives, and we see them throughout the week as well as for birthdays, long weekends, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and lots of impromptu occasions. They are thrilled to know we are looking to expand our family through adoption and will make a wonderful set of grandparents and uncle to our child.
Matt’s parents live in a small town in the middle of Kansas. His older brother lives a few minutes away from his parents, and his little brother (currently also in Kansas) has lived in many states and countries during his service in the Army. Both brothers are married, and his older brother has three children. We travel to see them and his parents as often as possible, and they are all excited we are working toward growing our family.
What Led Us To Adoption
We both love children, and we always knew having children was something we wanted. Having met and dated as teenagers, it was something we discussed doing before we were ever in a position to get married and follow through with starting a family. After we got married, adoption was still something we felt God placed in our hearts, and we are following His call for our lives to expand our family. We believe love for a child is not dependent on whether or not we share the same genes but on our genuine desire to grow our family. Our family is so full of laughter and love, and we can’t wait to share that with a new addition to 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
