dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
We can’t imagine how difficult it must be to consider adoption for your precious child and to read the profiles of families that might possibly raise and love him or her. The amount of courage and strength required to make this decision shows tremendous selflessness and compassion for your child. We thank you for considering us for the honor of raising your child.
If you choose us as adoptive parents for your child, we want you to know you and your child would be a true blessing and an answer to our prayers. We promise we will love your child unconditionally and provide a safe and stable environment for him or her to grow in. Our family and friends are thrilled and support our adoption plans. They are very excited and hopeful as we start our adoption journey.
If you choose us, we would welcome you into our family. We would be willing to support whatever level of interaction you wish to have. We also look forward to sharing your story with your child, and we would tell your baby how much you love him or her. The mere thought that you are taking the time to read about us shows how courageous you are on this journey. We know you want the best for your child. We pray for peace and clarity as you travel down this road on finding a wonderful family for your child.
Michael & Rachel
We are Mike and Rachel. We met through a mutual friend 13 years ago at a Christmas party. We got married five years later after growing our friendship. Rachel is a chiropractor with a specialty in pediatrics, and Mike is a senior software engineer. We both have our weekends free to enjoy life together, and we both enjoy the outdoors: riding horses, biking, hiking, kayaking, and running. On the weekends, you will find Rachel cooking and baking healthy recipes. She loves to have healthy food prepared for the week. Mike enjoys biking and fishing. Our favorite tradition was started after we first met: We check out sushi restaurants in whatever town we are in. Mike is easygoing and looking to enjoy what life brings. Rachel is outgoing and loves helping the people around her.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a cozy home on a corner lot with a big backyard that includes a large playset and hot tub. Our house has four bedrooms and three baths and a finished basement that has plenty of room to grow our family. We live in an excellent school district and great neighborhood that has many young kids who enjoy playing basketball using our hoop out front. We share our house with Stella, a chihuahua beagle mix that loves to play with everyone. We have new parks, a water park, soccer fields, and a YMCA within walking distance.
Our Extended Family
Rachel’s parents live one hour away on a farm. She has three sisters and nine nieces and nephews. We visit them each weekend and enjoy riding horses and taking float trips down the river along with making sure everyone gets their chiropractic adjustment. Both of Rachel’s parents have larger families, so she has many aunts, uncles, and cousins who live nearby. Her family has a lot of traditions and usually has at least one get-together during each holiday.
Mike’s grandparents and parents live close by, and we see them regularly. Mike’s two sisters and his niece and nephew live farther away, and we try to get together a few times a year, taking turns on who hosts the get-together. We use Skype to keep up on the family. We enjoy hiking, biking, going out to eat, and making lefse (a Norwegian flatbread) together with Mike’s family.
Our Adoption Story
We both love children and have always known we wanted a large family. After many years of trying to get pregnant, we decided not to try more aggressive fertility treatments. Instead, we felt adoption was the best way to grow our family. Two years ago we were blessed to be chosen as adoptive parents to Markus, a precious newborn. Two wonderful years later, we are again ready to grow our family through adoption and are excited to see what adoption has in store for 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
