dear expectant mother
Thank you for taking the time to get to know me and allowing me this opportunity to tell you a little bit about myself. I am waiting with open arms to welcome a baby into my home and life. It is very special that adoption can give me the incredible gift of a child and the immense joy of becoming a mother. I solemnly pledge that I will devote my life to your child’s well-being. If you choose me as an adoptive parent, your child will always come first. His well-being, happiness, and protecting him in life will always be one of my life's most important priorities. I want to be the best mother that I can possibly be. If you choose me, your child would always know how grateful I would be for your incredible gift. I would support contact between you or any of his siblings that you or the child might like.
Becoming a parent is a blessing, a privilege, and a life-long journey. It is as simple as saying “I love you” every day and encouraging thoughtfulness, respect, and kindness. It is as complex as teaching through example. I know that I will grow and learn with my child, and we will discover and explore life through travel, music, art, and the wonderful diversity that makes up the world around us.
Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know me. I am looking forward to my adoption journey!
I have worked for the same company in human resources and records for several years. Until my adulthood, my family lived mostly abroad. My father worked with the Foreign Service and we lived where his work took him. Two of my favorite places where we lived were Peru and Honduras. I still remember a second-grade field trip to a museum in Lima to view priceless relics from the Incan Empire. I still keep in touch with some school friends from Honduras who remain lifetime friends.
Because we moved often, our family grew very close. My mother is originally from Colombia and my brother and I grew up in a bilingual household, speaking both Spanish and English. My mom would love being called Nana and teaching a baby Spanish.
My Home & Pets
I have lived in a Virginia suburb for years. Our community is family-oriented with buildings going back to George Washington. As a history buff, I enjoy this aspect of my city. It makes me excited that daily life will always offer opportunities for learning.
I live with my mother and brother in a colonial house that sits atop a hill surrounded by an acre of garden and trees. It feels like the country because of the birds, squirrels, and the occasional fox. We have gorgeous autumns, snowy days, and spring blossoms.
Our neighborhood is safe with caring neighbors, excellent schools, and good daycares. We live near two churches and a recreation center with a pool. We have three cats, Caramel, and two offspring.
My Extended Family
We celebrate Thanksgiving with the traditional meal and Christmas by setting up the manger, hanging ornaments, and attending mass. Though our extended family is not always able to gather for holidays, we congregate for weddings or birthdays and keep in touch by letters or phone. We are part of a family network living in New York, Los Angeles, Colombia, Mexico, and Spain. Your child will be a welcomed part of that network.
Growing up, travel was a part of life, and I have never lost my love for experiencing new places. One memory is traveling with my family to visit my late aunt and uncle in southern Spain. I would like to travel with a child to Spain again or to Colombia to introduce him or her to my cousins. I hope to share with him or her the positive ways I was shaped from living in several places, learning the culture and language.
Education is important in our family. My late father stayed up late at night to help me with chemistry in grade school. I hold an advanced degree and both my mother and brother, a lawyer, are avid readers. I hope to provide my child a quality education that empowers him or her to reach their full potential.
What Led Me To Adoption
My plans to marry and have a family didn’t happen as I hoped. But I am still hopeful that I can fulfill my dream of becoming a mother through adoption. I'm always happy for every opportunity to bounce one of my relative’s new babies on my knee or play with the older kids at our family reunions. I am waiting with open arms to welcome a baby into my home and life. It is very special that adoption can give me the gift of a child. I believe an adopted infant is a precious bundle of joy that comes as a gift from God.

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
