dear expectant mother
We can't imagine what you are going through right now. We are so blessed to be considered by you to be prospective parents for your child. If your child comes home with us, our lives will revolve around her schedule. When she's awake, your baby will be cuddled by her new family, who will have to learn to take turns feeding her a bottle. She will come with us wherever we go so we can show her off to family and friends. What a blessing your child will be to our family! She will grow up knowing that she is not only loved by her parents but also adored by her older siblings.
Growing up in the country has so many opportunities! Not only do we take time to teach our kids how to ride bikes but we also take time to play with our kids. Around our yard, we can stop what we’re doing to push the kids on the swing or jump with them on the trampoline. From the jungle gym, we can head over to the barn to play with the baby kitties in the spring. After we’re done in the barn, we can grab the halters and some oats and go to the pasture to catch the pony and take turns riding around the yard. Then we’ll gather up the eggs on our way to the house to cook lunch.
Your child will have a warm and stable home, love of family, and endless opportunity.
Matthew raises cattle for a living, which means he is a man of many talents. Not only is he gentle enough to help a newborn calf but he’s strong enough to heave a chunk of iron back on a piece of equipment. He keeps all the machinery running so we can feed the cattle, and he is an amazing horseback rider. Lisa is right there beside Matthew helping him every chance she gets. She loves to get outside and help check the cows, but Lisa is also a lover of baking, sewing, music, and games. When school is done and the kids are home, they are her priority. She makes sure they had a good day at school and the homework is done, and then they all go out to see what Matthew needs help with for the evening or if he’s able to play a game with them.
Our Home & Pets
We have a four-bedroom, two-bathroom house with a main floor and a basement. Our yard includes a jungle gym with two slides and a climbing rope and three swing sets with eight swings total. We grow a large garden with a small fruit orchard by the jungle gym. Our yard also has eggs to gather from the chicken coop, barn cats to pet, guineas, and a friendly dog to lick faces clean. There is a large trampoline in the orchard by the rabbit cages. We have a great neighborhood. In the summer, we get together at our home for bonfires with marshmallow s’mores and swimming with friends.
Our Extended Family
Lisa grew up as the youngest of five kids. Her family gets together for every holiday and significant birthday, usually at her parents’ place. Her favorite family tradition is the music. Her oldest brother is an amazing singer, and he plays guitar and mandolin. We all love to contribute something to the jam session. We are already giving our daughter piano lessons, hoping one day she can jam with her uncle.
Matthew grew up as the second of four kids. His family gets together for holidays, but they also see each other every time somebody needs a hand working with cattle. They love to get on the horses and have a good discussion while trailing cattle down the road.
Both of our families love to play games. In the summertime, volleyball and croquet are a blast in the sunshine. Come winter, it’s family board games and cards.
What Led Us To Adoption
Adoption has been calling to us for a while now, but it just took some time for us to really hear that it was calling us. We see it everywhere and hear about it on the radio, at church, on billboards, and even from the people we meet. It’s in our hearts to adopt. We love our kids and want to share that love with another child. When we are blessed with a child to join our family, she will gain brothers and a sister and all kinds of freedom to roam the yard with pets of all shapes and sizes.

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
