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.

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.

About Us

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 at home. Justin’s outgoing, caring, supportive, task-oriented personality is a great asset in his career working at a local medical office. When we are not working, we enjoy watching baseball, spending time with our family and friends, exploring different parks, and playing with our boys.

Our Home & Pets

We love that our home has adequate space for each child to have their own room as their special place. Ian and Drew love to create with Legos, play superheroes, and build forts using a bunk bed and blankets. The fun continues in the back yard with a playground large enough to swing, slide, and climb on. Our boys like to imagine it is a pirate ship or ice cream shop. We live near a large city, which gives us access to many family attractions. Some of our favorites are the zoo, science center, magic house, and many parks to explore and play at. The smallest member of our family is our cat, Zoey. She loves being petted and enjoys getting treats.

Our Extended Family

We are grateful to have the love and support from our extended family, including our parents and siblings, who live close by. Whether it is to meet for dinner to talk about our week, going to the kids' events or the park, or celebrating holidays, we can always count on them to be there.

Justin’s sister loves to bake with the boys, especially Christmas cookies, and the boys are so excited to make delicious treats to share. We recently took a trip to Disney World with Justin’s dad, uncle, sisters, and niece. Everyone had so much fun making magical memories together. Melanie’s family really enjoys fall, so a trip to the pumpkin patch is always a must with picking the perfect pumpkins, hayrides, and the playground and bounce houses.

What Led Us To Adoption

We are excited and feel blessed by 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!
