We believe everything happens for a reason, and we want to thank you for taking the time to consider us as potential adoptive parents for your baby.
While this is a difficult decision that you’re considering, we also believe it is a brave and selfless one. We would be honored if you chose us to be a part of your adoption journey. We would love to provide your baby a loving home, the joy of growing up in a big family, and endless opportunities to thrive in a caring environment. Our family enjoys getting together for cookouts, birthdays, holidays, kids’ activities - really any reason to get together to eat, laugh, and share stories. We would love for your baby to be a part of all our lives and our families as we build memories that will last a lifetime.
Our families and friends are thrilled and support our adoption plans. We understand that you want the best for your child and we truly believe that we would be the best couple to provide unconditional love. If you choose us, we will help your child grow into a well-rounded adult. We are all so grateful for your perseverance and desire to do what is best for your precious child.
We understand there are many factors that go into your decision, and that nothing is taken lightly. We are here to provide love and lasting gratitude to you for considering allowing your baby to be a part of our world.
We met when we were teenagers while working in a candy aisle of a grocery store. Who would have thought that the many flavors of Twizzlers would bring two strangers together while on Spring Break? Shortly thereafter we began dating. We discovered we enjoyed each other’s company and found it harder to be apart. This is how we discovered this was true love. After dating for three years and being engaged for another three, we got married.
As a couple, we enjoy walking on a local trail with our dog, “trying” to golf on the local courses, and competitive games of cornhole in our backyard. We also enjoy landscaping our backyard with trees, flowers, and with Amy’s personal touches of gnomes, flags, and welcome signs. At least one week a year, we take a vacation to the beach. We enjoy relaxing on a beach, drinking milkshakes, taking long evening beach walks, and visiting the local tourist attractions.
Our Home & Pets
We were the first to build our house in a neighborhood that is only seven years old. We built a four-bedroom brick house that has a finished basement and a large, perfectly flat backyard. There’s a large kitchen connected to the family room, a dining room for our large family gatherings, and a sitting room (hoping to one day be a playroom). We chose that lot and built this house with the anticipation of having a family someday. Our neighborhood consists of many young families with younger children. Some neighborhood activities include an annual block party, an outdoor Easter egg hunt, door-to-door to sing Christmas carols, and trick-or-treating. As for pets, we currently have an energetic and happy three-year-old Boston Terrier named Winston.
Our Extended Family
Michael’s extended family consists of his parents and two younger sisters, one of whom is married with one daughter and a six-month-old son. Michael has a grandfather and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins who are all consistently around. We are a very close family that takes family vacations together and gathers for the casual Sunday dinner. Throwing in an occasional game of go fish, badminton, Bingo, or even making short videos is not out of the ordinary.
Amy’s extended family consists of her mother, stepdad, and older brother. Living locations prevent additional aunts and cousins from attending everyday gatherings, but they make up for it with occasional baby showers, weddings, and birthdays. Amy, her mother, and aunt have spent the last fifteen years plus attending Fall and Christmas craft festivals. This has become an annual tradition with the three of them. Of course, there are still the occasional shopping excursions taken throughout the year between Amy and her mother.
What Led Us To Adoption
In our mid to late twenties, we decided to start a family but unfortunately were unable to conceive, even with three rounds of IVF. Though deeply disappointed, we knew in our hearts that we were still meant to be parents and looked into the beautiful process of adoption. Early in our relationship, we were blessed to see our extended family grow when Michael’s aunt and uncle adopted a newborn girl. We have been able to see how she immediately became a part of the family. Our cousin has always kept in touch with her birthmother and they still have a relationship today. Also, Michael’s best friend (since the first grade) and his older siblings were also adopted. Having observed adoption in these ways, we know this is how we are meant to build our family.

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
