dear expectant mother
Dear Expectant Mother,
We want you to know what it would mean for us to be chosen. Being a mom has been the ultimate goal for Nicole. The process has been long and hard, but we have never given up hope. We were blessed in 2019 with our daughter, Callie, but during delivery, we almost lost Nicole and Callie. We knew if we wanted to grow our family, we would look into the adoption process.
When we think about what type of family we want to raise, we want to give all of our children a life full of unconditional love, emotional support, and a stable household. We love family time, whether it is walks with the dogs, swimming at the local pool, or dance parties before bedtime. Our favorite routines are Saturday mornings, which start with cartoons and snuggles in Mommy and Daddy’s bed. Then we head downstairs to make pancakes. Callie loves berries and chocolate. We then always pick a family outing for after naptime, which recently has been going to the park. We finish Saturdays with family dinner at Nicole’s parents’ with her aunts and uncles.
We are beyond grateful you are even reading our profile. Honestly, we cannot even fathom the decision you are making. What a selfless person you must be starting your adoption plan. We want you to know that if chosen to be your baby’s parents, we would cherish your little one for the rest of their lives.
We met in 2013 in a grocery aisle. Our relationship started with awkward small talk and a horrible first date. The spark began with some laughs over a movie and a pumpkin carving competition. We love to laugh and enjoy our time together. Our newest obsession is doing house projects in our new home. We just finished giving our daughter the coolest toy room, and she can’t wait to share it with a sibling. Family is incredibly important to us, and we spend a lot of time with ours, whether it's James’s family who has traveled down or weekly dinners with Nicole’s family. We love game nights and cornhole tournaments. We live pretty busy lives, but we do whatever is necessary to make sure we are making time for each other and our daughter.
Our Home & Pets
We are very excited to have just moved into a bigger home! It is in the most amazing neighborhood! Every neighbor is always ready to lend a hand, and they do neighborhood parties for all major holidays. It's like we gained a new family just moving here. We are very centrally located in our little town and close to parks, walking trails, and a swimming pool! Our new house has the most amazing toy room we have had so much fun setting up! We also have two loving dogs, who are enjoying the new back yard as well and the new doggie basement!
Our Extended Family
James is an only child, and his parents come down to visit at least twice a month. He has two aunts and one uncle in SC whom we see at least once a year. Nicole comes from a big family! She has four siblings and is the oldest. Her parents live locally, so we see them on a weekly basis. Nicole’s siblings are located throughout the country. She is very close with all her siblings. Some live locally so we see them more often, but even the ones who live far away we see multiple times a year. We love to take vacations out to visit them!
Nicole also has extended family in the northwest region of the United States. We take two weeks every summer to drive out and visit them. Both of her grandmothers are alive and well! Both of her parents are from the same area as well, and they have lots of siblings with kids too, so there is no shortage of aunts, uncles, and cousins! We enjoy a very tight relationship with them and enjoy our summer visits along with weekly FaceTime calls with them too!
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always wanted a big family because of both of our upbringings. James feels like he missed out on siblings, and Nicole loved having all of her best friends under one roof. Unfortunately, we had a hard time with fertility, so we have to be more creative when it comes to starting our family. We have always talked about adopting over the years. We started doing research on the adoption process and, after much discussion and reflection, decided that we, as well as our extended family, have much love to give and share. We then made the decision to start this journey to adopt.

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
