dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
We know this must be a difficult time for you as you consider the best option for you and your precious child. We hope you receive the support and love you need as you go through this part of your journey in life. We admire your courage and strength to consider adoption for your precious child.
We would be honored and grateful for you to include us in your adoption plan. We promise to love, care for, and protect your child. Your child will always know how much you love and care for them and about the strength you had to make the decision to allow us the honor and joy to become a part of their family.
We met and began dating in the summer of 2012. We had an instant connection. Just over a year later, we were married. We were both excited to start and grow our family. In 2014 we had our first son, Ian, and in 2018 our second son, Drew, arrived. Melanie decided to change careers and opened an in-home daycare, which she enjoys very much. Her patient, caring, loving personality shines through both in her career and home. Justin’s outgoing, caring, supportive, task-oriented personality is a great asset in his career working at a local hospital. We both enjoy watching baseball, spending time with our family, exploring different parks, and playing with our boys.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a nice, two-story home with lots of room for the children to play. Each child has their own room to make it their own special place. Our backyard has a playground and plenty of space for the children to run around. We are in a friendly neighborhood and in one of the top-rated school districts. We live in the suburbs, just outside a large city, giving us access to many great family attractions. A few of our favorites are the zoo, science center, museums, and many parks to explore and play at. We also have a cat named Zoey, who loves attention and to be petted.
Our Extended Family
Melanie has one sister, and Justin has two sisters. We are grateful that most of our family live close by. Melanie’s parents and sister live a short 20-minute drive away. Justin’s dad is only a few minutes away. This allows us to see each other often and stay connected. We also have cousins who live a few hours away, so we spend many long weekends visiting with them.
What Led Us To Adoption
We are excited and feel blessed for the opportunity to grow our family through adoption. After Melanie had health issues with her pregnancy, her doctor advised her of the potential health risk to her and the baby if she was pregnant again. We decided the risk was not worth it, and our hearts were pulled toward 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!
