dear expectant mother

Thank you for considering us to be the proud parents of your baby. We deeply admire your consideration of adoption and the selflessness and love that you have shown. Adoption is the way that we have always wanted to build a family. We both wished that we had more siblings growing up, and we are thrilled to soon complete our family of five. We know that family is about an unconditional bond and commitment. The love of a parent is even deeper than we imagined, and we can’t wait to show an adopted baby how much we love him or her.

The day our adopted daughter was born was the most powerful and memorable in our lives, both because we were becoming parents for the first time and also because of the incredible bond that we felt with her birth mom at that moment. If you choose us, your baby will know what a wonderful person you are. We want your baby to know his or her story and feel how lucky they are to have so many people who love them.

A new baby adds so much happiness, laughter, personality, and love to a family. We will teach our children to be strong, brave, and kind. We will raise them with honesty, encouragement, and a strong support system. They will have an excellent education, adventure, and unconditional and unwavering love. We are so excited and hopeful to welcome a new baby into our lives and home.

About Us

We are Penny and Paul! We met in our first year of teaching, and it was just about love at first sight. Penny is smart, energetic, and adventurous. Paul is kind, honest, and hard-working. We both love sports, history, traveling, and reading. As lifetime educators, we also both love children! We were married in 2006, adopted our first daughter in 2012, and had our second daughter in 2015. We are very family oriented and love spending time together doing things as a family.

You can often find us on hikes, visiting museums and parks, cooking together, watching our children play soccer, or going to a favorite restaurant. We absolutely love to travel and have been to France, England, Spain, Italy, Egypt, China, Switzerland, Hawaii, and more! We have always imagined our lives surrounded by a big, loving, happy family, and we are so excited for the adventures to come!

Our Home & Pets

We live in Tennessee in a wonderful community filled with children. Our city is widely known as one of the best places in the country to live, and we see that in the numerous outdoor activities, the kindness of our neighbors, and the sunny weather! Our home is around the corner from one of the highest rated schools in the city, and we have access to a community pool, numerous outdoor trails, and so many fun family activities. Our home has four bedrooms, two playrooms, and a large back yard. We enjoy exploring the city, playing in the many parks, and being with our friends.

Our Extended Family

Family is very important to us, and we are lucky to have a supportive, loving, and close family. We celebrate birthdays and holidays and find every opportunity to be together.

Penny was born and raised in Sacramento, where her parents still live. Her sister and husband recently moved to Austin with their two children, and our families are often grilling, berry picking, swimming, or going out for ice cream. Penny’s parents visit every other month and FaceTime with the family every night. They are very involved and loving grandparents. Penny is also close with her grandfather, four aunts and uncles, and ten cousins and their families. Together, we have family dance parties, Olympic watch parties, and rowdy holidays.

Paul’s mom, dad, and brother live in Wisconsin, where he was born and raised. His brother has a daughter the same age as our daughter, and the two love to share stories when they call each other. Paul’s mom has a “hobby farm.” Our daughters love seeing the animals and helping her to garden.

We are very lucky to have so many people who love and support us and who love our children as their own.

Our Adoption Story

Adoption has always been our first choice in how we wanted to have children. Even in early conversations before we were married, adoption was the way in which we wanted to build our family. As educators, we deeply understand the magnitude of love you can feel for children, regardless of biology. Adoption felt like the best and right choice for us as a couple, and we are reminded every day about how happy we are that we made that choice. We will never forget how nervous and excited we felt meeting our daughter’s birth mom and family. It is a joy to remain in touch with them and to share the growth and experiences of our families.

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!
