dear expectant mother
To the Possible Mother of a Child We Will Love Beyond Words:
Let us first start by thanking you for considering giving us the most beautiful blessing we could ever receive. The opportunity to love and care for your little angel is something we will never be able to repay. We became first-time parents in 2021 and have loved every step of parenthood. We have gone to incredible lengths for our daughter, Madison, to have the best outcomes she possibly can with her diagnosis. We promise we will absolutely do the same for any future children we are lucky enough to add to our family. Fundamentally, family is the center of everything we do and the best part of our identities. We love our family and can’t wait to give our sweet daughter a sibling.
If you choose us as parents for your child, we commit to a lifetime of love and support. We are an open and nonjudgmental home. Our children will be supported in any and all ways: health, schooling, identity, professions, sports, or activities. We vow to grow their natural abilities and not force anything that isn’t of their own expressed interest.
This home is abundant in laughter, goofiness, acceptance, and kindness. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for being who you are and making the decisions you are making, and we thank you for considering our family.

We met some years ago on a dating website. It wasn’t long before we realized we had found what we both had been looking for in a partner: a true best friend. We have leaned on each other as friends and true partners out of necessity and, more importantly, love. We enjoy sitting out on our back porch, watching the stars and listening to our favorite music. Miria is a strong individual who will do anything to support her loved ones. She loves art, hiking and nature, antique festivals, and rescuing animals. She works as an area director of sales for a home health agency. Michael is an avid outdoorsman, partaking in fishing and camping on a regular basis. He holds the position of general manager for a building supply company. We both admire one another’s kind and generous hearts.
Our Home & Pets
We have a beautiful and fur-filled home that includes four amazing dogs. For many years, we have fostered dogs, almost 40 to date. As a result, we always have a full and loving home of dogs. It has been a passion of ours to rehabilitate dogs from bad situations and find them just the right loving home to help them flourish. Our home is a beautiful four-bedroom home with lots of space to play, live, and romp outside. We love to work on projects on our home to keep it fresh, light, and homey.
Our Extended Family
Michael comes from a very large immediate and extended family, a big bonus for Miria, who has a small but mighty family. Michael has three close sisters and two amazing and very involved parents who love their grandkids more than life itself. Miria had an older brother who passed away at age 41, so she and her mother hold their side together with lots of love.
Our favorite tradition is to host Friendsgiving for our friends, family, and neighbors each year. It is a wonderful gathering with live music and tons of food. Christmas usually has many celebrations as our family is spread out across the state. We decorate the house with many lights, trees, and blow-up characters in the yard. In the summer, we love to go to Miria’s family lake house to play in the water and camp out in our 1957 vintage camper.
What Led Us To Adoption
Adoption is an avenue to growing our family that we have always talked about. Even early in dating, we talked about what family means to us and how we saw our future together. We attended foster and adoption conferences and sought to learn what this actually meant. After three months of marriage, we discovered we were pregnant and were elated. We learned at 20 weeks pregnant our daughter had spina bifida; after medical care and treatments, it was determined having another biological child wouldn't be likely. So we have come to our and God’s original plan to expand our family through adoption! We have had several family and friends who have been adopted or have chosen to adopt and have seen how people can flourish in a loving 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!
