We believe everything happens for a reason and we want to thank you for taking the time to consider us as the adoptive parents for your baby. This is a difficult decision that you’re making and we realize it may not be an easy one. It is also a brave and selfless decision and we would be honored if you considered us as the right family to adopt your child. We would be able to provide your baby a loving home, the joy of growing up in a big family, and opportunity to thrive in a loving and caring home.
This is a journey that not only consists of us. It also includes our families, your love and understanding, and the baby you are carrying. Our families and friends are thrilled and support our adoption plans and are excited and hopeful that our dream of starting a family comes true. 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 and to help him or her grow into a well-rounded adult. We have spent many unsuccessful years trying to start a family the conventional way, and we both know that now is the right time for us to adopt a child.
Hopefully, you’ve read about us and feel comfortable that through our words you can see and feel the deep appreciation we have for you going through a very unselfish life choice. The mere thought that you’ve considered us shows how courageous you are in this journey and next chapter of all our lives. We understand there are many factors that go into your decision, things not taken lightly, and we would like for you to feel comfortable and at peace knowing your child will share in many future endeavors. We are here to provide love and forever lasting gratitude to you for allowing your baby to be a part of our world.
We met when we were teenagers, have been together as a couple for 22 years, and married for 16 years. We grew into adulthood together, shared many life experiences, and have seen the ups and downs that life brings. Michael has a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting and is currently a Senior Accountant. He has been in the accounting field for the past 15 years. Amy has a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and is currently working as a Quality Assurance reviewer. She has been in this field for 14 years. The hobbies that we enjoy together as a couple include walking on a local trail with our 2-year-old Boston Terrier as well as “trying” to golf on the local courses. Since we’ve had our new home, we’ve enjoyed landscaping our backyard with trees, shrubs, and flowers. At least one week a year we get away to a beach, whether it’s within driving distance with family or one of the many islands we’ve visited. We enjoy relaxing on a beach, drinking milkshakes, taking long evening beach walks or visiting the local tourist attractions. As for individual hobbies, Michael participates in half marathons and other charitable races around Pittsburgh while Amy enjoys making crafts and other projects with our 10-year-old niece.
Our Home & Pets
We were the first to build our house in a neighborhood that is only 6 years old. We built a 4-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 had chosen that lot and built this size 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, children going door to door to sing Christmas Carols, and Trick or Treating which consists of around 100 plus trick or treaters. As for pets, we currently have an energetic and happy 2-year-old Boston Terrier.
Our Extended Family
Michael’s extended family consists of his parents and two younger sisters, one of whom is married with one child and another on the way. Michael has his grandparents and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins all consistently around. We are a very close family that takes family vacations together, celebrates all holidays and birthdays together, and gathers for the casual Sunday dinner.
Amy’s extended family consists of a 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. With the disappointment of not conceiving within 6 months, the doctor visits and tests began. After the first unsuccessful IUI treatments as well as a few other avenues, we took a break from the doctors to keep our finances from depleting, while still trying naturally. After a year, Amy went to another specialist who found that she had endometrioses, which led to surgery hoping to clear up any biological blockages. Again, after 6 months of no success, we decided to try IVF. Three transfers and two miscarriages later, we went back to several unsuccessful IUI treatments. The emotional roller coaster we experienced the past 10 years finally led us to believe adoption is truthfully the way we were meant to build our family.

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
