dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
You reading our letter and your consideration of us going on this journey with you overwhelms us with gratitude. We want to provide you with love, support, and encouragement for whatever decisions you make, just as we want to do for your child. We know considering adoption is a selfless act of love that shows just how much a mother loves a child. If you entrust us to raise your child, we know this will be a journey together and are open to taking that journey with you, however you feel comfortable.
This child will know how special they are because of the loving decisions that were made for them to have a life full of love. We want you to know how special, brave, and loving you are to make this decision. If you choose us, we will raise this child in a home full of love and acceptance. We will ensure authenticity and empathy every day.
As dads, we will celebrate, teach, encourage, and learn from them. Andrew will run through the house with them, teaching them to slide on the floor in their socks and building forts out of blankets for movie nights. Michael will be the loudest parent in the audience, and he’ll teach them the value of what they have by helping them volunteer in our community. We believe the universe will connect us with the baby that is meant to be, and if you choose us, we will forever be connected by love.
We have been together for five years and married for one. Having our family and friends join us for our wedding made it the greatest day of our lives—so far. We both work corporate jobs and are passionate about purposeful work. Andrew is Director of Sales, and Michael is Senior Vice President in banking. Our love for boating on the lake, travel, and gathering with friends and family bring us joy. We find ourselves filled with happiness in the small daily routines, such as dinner conversations after work, annual holiday traditions with our family, and sharing a meal with friends. Andrew cooks and Michael cleans; this balance is the foundation of our marriage. Andrew is fun and adventurous; he is always ready for fun and finding a way to bring people together. Michael is a deep thinker and conversationalist; he is always planning and keeping important things on track.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a city at the end of a cul-de-sac in a quiet neighborhood filled with families who have children of different ages who are constantly playing together. We are a short walk to a wonderful park and an easy drive to museums and family activities. We also have a cabin overlooking the lake in the mountains. Our cabin is our happy place; it is full of opportunities to make lifelong family memories. Being with friends and family, hiking in the mountains, swimming and water sports on the lake, and getting a taste of the small town life fills us with togetherness. In the middle of everything are our two dogs, Sebastian and Mallie, a five-year-old cocker spaniel and a four-year-old English foxhound.
Our Extended Family
We are very close to our family on both sides. Andrew’s family lives close by, and we see Michael’s side often. We are both younger brothers in families of two boys, and we have a niece and nephew from each brother. Holidays are a big deal in our family, where we’re surrounded by big meals full of multi-generational recipes and ongoing family traditions. Every summer, Andrew’s extended family gathers for a beach family reunion that has been a tradition for more than 50 years, while Christmas with Michael’s family is guaranteed to include a scavenger hunt that leads you to your “big present.” Each summer, both sides of our family gather on the lake together.
Our parents raised us to know that a family is built on love and togetherness. Everyone is filled with excitement about the opportunity to grow our family, especially Michael’s grandparents, who navigated the adoption journey themselves. We consider our close friends to be our chosen family, and they are waiting with excitement to be aunts and uncles to a new baby. A baby will be met with love and pure joy by all.
What Led Us To Adoption
The decision to grow our family through adoption was easy for us. Michael’s dad is adopted, and when Andrew met his family, he saw how much love is in a family that has been impacted by adoption. We are both aware of and grateful for the choice Michael’s grandparents and his dad’s birthmother made; our families are full of love. We want to be parents, and we want to continue growing our family through 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!Return to Waiting Families
