dear expectant mother
We are truly honored you have read about us and are hopefully considering us to raise your baby. We are ready for this journey, and we feel so grateful to have the opportunity to become parents.
As parents, we will provide a home with stability and love. We both come from close families, and we are fortunate to have a supportive circle of good friends as well. We look forward to many moments in raising a child, both big and small. Whether it’s reading books before bed, baking cookies, or seeing the elephants at the zoo, all of these are experiences we can’t wait to share.
In particular, we look forward to introducing our child to our favorite family vacation spots: the beach in New Jersey and the Georgian Bay in Ontario. Both are places that are important to our families. At the beach, Megan’s family spends time together on the beach, riding bikes, and watching the Fourth of July fireworks. On the Georgian Bay, Stewart’s family has a small cottage that’s been in the family for five generations! We can’t wait to dip our future child’s toes in the water for the first time and sit on the rocks warmed by the sun. Spending time in both of these places is a strong family tradition we want to introduce to our child so they, too, can know the peace, familial bonds, and reverence for the natural world that we feel.
We met on a blind date, but it turns out our families have known each other for years! We grew up in the same area, and our grandparents were very good friends and often traveled together in their retirement years. However, we went to different schools growing up and both lived outside of our hometown for a period of time after high school, so our paths never crossed until our first date. It was fun to discover all that we had in common. We quickly found we complement each other well. We enjoy spending time together, but we each have individual interests as well. We are fortunate to live near our families and have a lot of family support. Stewart works in sales for his family’s building company. Megan works as a family medicine doctor.
Our Home & Pets
We live in an older home that has been recently renovated. Throughout the renovations, we kept in mind our goal to grow our family. We have a third-floor room that we plan to use as a playroom. We are fortunate to live in a residential part of the city with restaurants and an ice cream parlor within walking distance. We live near several beautiful public parks with walking trails and playgrounds. We also live near the zoo and several museums, including a children’s museum. We have two dogs and three cats in our home, all good with children. We have three professional sports teams in our city, and we are able to attend games a few times per year and would share this with our child.
Our Extended Family
We are fortunate to live close to our extended families. Our parents live just a few miles from each other and both about 15 minutes from us. Megan has two brothers and a sister. Her older brother and his wife live in our neighborhood. They have three children, so playtime with cousins would be a regular occurrence. Stewart has one brother and one sister. We also have extended family who live near us, including several aunts, uncles, and cousins. Megan’s grandmother is 96 and still attends all of our family functions!
On Megan’s side, a favorite tradition is our yearly beach vacation. Her family has been going to the same beach town since the 1960s. Family holidays are always fun, especially Christmas. This includes traditional meals and decorating the house. Megan’s mom has made Halloween costumes for all of her children and grandchildren through the years, something she looks forward to doing for her newest grandchild as well. Stewart’s family has a cottage in northern Canada that we visit in the summer. His family has been using this cottage for many years. Both of our families are excited to welcome our child into the family and include him or her in our favorite traditions.
What Led Us To Adoption
We started talking about building a family soon after we met. Although we have dealt with infertility, we have always discussed adoption as a way to build our family. We have met with other families who have adopted their children and see how well they have bonded. Becoming parents is very important to us regardless of the path. We do not feel it is necessary to be genetically related to our child. We feel very honored to be adopting our child, and we are fortunate our families are both very supportive.

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
