dear expectant mother
You’ve come so far. Now close your eyes, take a deep breath, and know in your heart everything is going to be okay. If you had any doubts before, have faith. You’re going to be okay. And your baby is going to be okay. We have no doubt this process brings with it a whole lot of emotions, and we want you to know we are with you as you consider the options for your child.
Know as you consider our family, we will do everything we can to offer your child a loving home, a secure childhood, a strong extended community of loving adults, opportunities to travel, and simple moments together as a family. Family meals and time together are priorities in our house. We love to explore the outdoors, and our backyard is an oasis for our family. We envision the space of our home to be filled with memories made for years to come, from playing Frisbee to jumping on the trampoline, hanging out in the hammocks, having bonfires, or enjoying breakfast and dinners on the deck. We so desire to create a safe space for kids to grow up in. As you continue to consider adoption, please know our hearts are with you. May you know peace in your decisions as you go through this journey.
We met in school and soon fell in love. Michael says he was attracted to Tasha’s down-home upbringing (and her ability to throw a football), and Tasha was drawn to his character and lively sense of humor. We had similar hearts for the adventures of life and the joy of serving others. We love people and love welcoming others into our home.
Michael works for an international outreach ministry to teenagers. Tasha works part-time at a church and is a professional photographer. We’re very involved in our family and feel very blessed to be connected to such a beautiful community. Friends and family mean a lot to us. We love the outdoors, enjoy travel, and are always finding new things to do together.
Our Home & Pets
Our home is a total gift. It’s located on a private street in a safe neighborhood. It has a big backyard where we love to host parties and socialize with friends. It also backs up to a school playground where our kids love to play. We have four bedrooms and a lot of kid-friendly space. We want our home to be an oasis for our children, so we’ve intentionally set up spaces that foster family time. From the karaoke stage to the playroom to the slide coming off the bunk bed or the giant tree house out back, we want to create fun memories with our kids that will remind them they are cherished and loved.
Our Extended Family
Tasha comes from a larger family and grew up on a farm. She has three siblings and parents who live about four hours away from us. We see them often as Tasha’s mom is retired and loves to visit. Our kids love to go to the farm! Combine rides at harvest time, picking eggs from the chicken coop, and all the simple warmth of small-town life have added some incredible experiences to our family life.
Michael grew up in the city and comes from a smaller family. He has one older sister, and his parents still live close by. They love spending time with our children every week. We really enjoy the benefits of being close to family and allowing our kids to grow up knowing the unique love of grandparents.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always wanted to adopt. Whether we had biological children or not, we always knew we wanted to be parents and raise children together. We’ve always loved the idea of having a big family full of lots of time spent together and having adventures. We have wonderful children who are excitedly waiting to welcome another child into the family. They are so excited! And so are we.

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
