It’s hard to know where to begin when writing something like this. I’ve tried to imagine myself in your shoes, and the truth is, I have no idea how difficult this must be for you. By looking through our profile and pictures you may not feel like we have much in common. At first glance, that might be true. However, we have one very important thing in common: we both really love a child that we haven’t met yet. Mike and I believe that your decision to give your child a chance at life is the absolute the most loving thing you could ever do for your baby. We have the utmost respect for your brave decision to give your baby to another family to be loved and raised. Just thinking about you and your bravery can bring me to tears.
You will never be spoken about in a negative way. You will be described as the brave and selfless woman who gave us one of the greatest gifts of our lives! We will share whatever information you allow. We are happy to communicate with you throughout the child’s life, as long as you would like. We will always respect your wishes regarding communication and hope to have a wonderful relationship with you.
We know that regardless of how our baby comes into our family, he or she will be greatly loved their entire life. That is the beauty of adoption. Your pain and bravery, combined with our pain and bravery, is giving a sweet child a forever home. We would be so thrilled if you gave us the honor to love your child and we are praying for you everyday to make the best decision you can.
We met in college in 2007 and got married in 2010. Mike works as an associate pastor now and was previously a youth pastor. I (Rebecca) was a bedside nurse for 4 years before going back to school to become a nurse practitioner. I now work in a pain management office two days a week. We both enjoy having friends to our home, especially in the summer when we can grill and enjoy a bonfire. In the winter, we make the best of the weather by going skiing. Mike enjoys playing (and watching) basketball and I enjoy going to the pool and getting coffee with friends.
Our Home & Pets
We moved to a new home in July 2016. We really love our safe and friendly neighborhood which has lots of young children. There are always kids outside playing together and coming over to play with our daughter. It is a really wonderful place to raise a child. We do not have any pets right now but would like to get a dog when our children are older and can “help!” Our home has plenty of room for our growing family. Our backyard is private with lots of trees and plenty of room for kids to play.
Our Extended Family
Mike has parents and one younger brother. His parents live about 30 minutes away from our home and his mom is able to babysit for us often. Mike’s parents love spending time with their only grandchild and she is certainly enjoyed by Mike’s two grandmothers as well. I (Rebecca) have parents and an older brother and sister who are both married with children. Mike and I have 6 nieces and nephews with one more on the way. My family all lives about 2.5 hours from us, but we are fortunate to be able to see them throughout the year. With all the kids, family gatherings are never boring! Both of our families are very supportive and encouraging. We know that we can count on them for anything and enjoy spending time together.
What Led Us To Adoption
Mike and I have often talked about adopting a child, even before we got married. After getting pregnant with our daughter, we planned on having one more biological child, then possibly adopting a third child. Unfortunately, I had a miscarriage and we were unable to get pregnant for several months. As we dealt with the emotional pain of a miscarriage, we both felt like our hearts were becoming open to adopting a child sooner than we ever planned. We know many people who have adopted and have been honest with us about the process. Overwhelmingly, no matter what adoption story we heard, everyone said it would be a decision we would never regret.

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
