dear expectant mother
We think you are so brave and strong to contemplate making an adoption plan for your child. We are humbled and thankful that you are considering us to be your child’s parents.
If you select us to be your child’s adoptive family, we want to assure you that he or she will be raised surrounded by constant love and support from us, our extended family, and our community. He or she would learn how to bake dozens of Christmas cookies with Tahishia each year to share with family and friends. Matt would take him or her to his family camp and hike in the woods to learn about nature. Dakota would walk around the neighborhood all day with him or her. We would have fun close to home, like fires in the back yard with s’mores, or adventures far away, such as learning new cultures in countries abroad.
We would also want your child to know about you. He or she would know how you made a decision that changed our lives forever and fulfilled a dream that we’ve had for a long time. We want to make sure that you are able to stay in touch with your child as they grow, if you would want that. We would love to have you be part of our extended family. Thank you again for considering us. It means so much!
We are Matt and Tahishia, and our story begins with a wedding. We met when our best friends got married. We knew early on in our relationship that we were meant to be together forever and were engaged on our seven-month anniversary. We got married in 2013. Matt works in information technology for a Fortune 100 company. He is a car enthusiast and enjoys racing and car shows and spending time outside, either at his family cabin or in the backyard. Tahishia works from home, also in information technology, for a consulting company. She enjoys baking different types of desserts, especially cupcakes, and time outside, whether it’s around a campfire with s’mores or cutting the grass. We love to travel and explore new locations and cultures, both domestically and internationally.
Our Home & Pets
Our home has 5 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, with a large, finished basement and a three-car garage. We have a nice-sized back yard with hills for sledding and a playground, which the neighborhood kids love to use. Our community is full of other families with children of all ages. There are always fun activities in our neighborhood, like driveway movies or Easter egg hunts. We have a Labrador retriever named Dakota, who loves to play with the kids in her backyard. We also have a cat named Cosmo, who watches over the neighborhood from the windows. We live in one of the best school districts in our area.
Our Extended Family
Matt has a large family who all live within a couple hours’ drive, including his mom and her new husband, his sister, his grandfather, a dozen aunts and uncles, and over a dozen cousins. Matt’s family loves spending time together, whether it’s at the cabin sitting around the fire or someone’s house at Christmas time doing the white elephant gift exchange. Every Christmas Eve, we visit Matt’s family, along with close family friends that live nearby.
Tahishia’s family is a little smaller and a little more spread out. Her mom, dad, grandma, and two sisters live close, but she also has aunts, uncles, and cousins who live in different states but visit often. Tahishia’s family makes non-traditions a tradition, such as having fajitas for Easter. We love spending Christmas with her family and enjoying the entire day in pjs while watching movies or playing games.
Both of our families are excited about our adoption journey. They know that we have such a strong desire to be parents. Our families have been with us for the entire journey, and we know they will be a great support system for our new family.
What Led Us To Adoption
Our journey to start a family began four years ago. After not being able to get pregnant within a year, we met with an infertility doctor. We ran all the tests we could, took different medication, and tried different procedures trying to get pregnant, but it was never successful. During this time, our desire to start our family never wavered. We decided that we wanted to put our hearts and passion toward starting a family through the miracle of adoption.

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
