dear expectant mother
Thank you so much for considering us. Our gratitude to you for considering us as parents for your child is indescribable. We understand this is a life-changing decision and not one you will take lightly. We want you to know we feel similarly. This decision will also change our lives forever, and for that, you will forever be so important and special in our lives. Above all else, if you trust us with this miraculous gift, we promise to always be loving and caring parents to your child. We promise we will love, encourage, and support your child for exactly who they are.
Your extremely selfless sacrifice is recognized, and we want to do whatever we can to make this a positive and confident adoption experience for all of us. We want to be respectful of your comfort level throughout this journey, not only regarding your relationship with us but especially with your child. We want you to know we are approaching this journey with open-mindedness and love. We know you will always have a very special place in your child’s heart and want to be sure to nurture and encourage those feelings and that relationship forever. Every family has a unique story, and we hope to be able to create a beautiful family story that weaves us all together.
We are incredibly grateful you are considering us as parents for your child. We think we would make excellent parents and would love to share our lives with your child.
We first met in 2010 while in college. We became quick friends and formed a strong connection almost right away. Our friendship quickly turned into love, and a few years after college, in 2018, we were married. We each work in a similar line of business, market research; Melissa works in toy research, and Mike’s focus is on automobiles. During our time away from work, we love spending time with our two dogs. We enjoy cooking, home improvement projects, and spending time outdoors, and we’re always finding ourselves smiling and laughing together. Becoming parents is a shared dream of ours. Being able to include your child as a part of our loving, happy, and laughter-filled home would be a dream come true.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a wonderful city known for great schools and being very family oriented. Our neighborhood has many families and includes several playgrounds, walking paths, and even an elementary school. Our home has plenty of room for our family to grow with four bedrooms and a very large backyard. There are several local attractions near our home that are perfect for families as well as some other nearby destinations that make for perfect family getaways. We have two small dogs, Otto and Lola. They are two of the sweetest dogs you’ll ever meet! It’s been a joy to see how gently and attentively they interact with small children and how quickly they come to love everyone they meet.
Our Extended Family
We are very lucky to regularly see our parents and grandparents, all of whom (besides one of Mike’s grandmothers) live within 20 minutes of our home. We each have one younger sibling: Melissa a brother and Mike a sister. Mike’s sister and her husband have a two-year-old son and are expecting their second! We are having so much fun being an aunt and uncle and watching our nephew learn and grow.
We are very close with our families and enjoy spending time with them, including holidays and other special occasions. We each have several traditions we’ve grown up with, particularly at Christmas, including hand-knit stockings from Mike’s grandma and Christmas morning brunch with Melissa’s family. It has been fun to continue to share those traditions with each other, and we’re looking forward to evolving and forming new traditions as our family grows.
What Led Us To Adoption
When considering our options for becoming parents, adoption always felt like the natural decision for us. We have so much love to give and are overjoyed about welcoming a new member into our family. We feel a biological connection is not necessary to create a lifelong bond and family, and we can offer a loving home, environment, and family atmosphere for your child. As strong as our connection will be, we believe you and your child will always have a special connection as well. We are respectful of that relationship and support whatever level of contact and sharing you and your child feel is right.

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
