dear expectant mother
To a Loving Mother:
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us and for considering an adoption plan for your child. We can’t begin to imagine how tough this decision must be, just as we can’t begin to explain how grateful we are for you and your selfless and courageous consideration. You would be giving us a gift we cannot give ourselves—a child to love!
Choosing us would mean your child would be raised with love, encouragement, and values so they grow up to respect others and give back to their community. Volunteer work is important to us, and we hope to pass that desire for giving back on to our child. We would also pass along family traditions, like cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning and celebrating New Year’s Eve around a big bonfire making s’mores. We are also looking forward to making new traditions with our new family.
Our journey hasn’t been an easy one, but we wouldn’t change a thing because it led us here to you. We believe things happen for a reason and people are brought into our world for a purpose. Many of our friends are considered family by us, and it would give us so much pleasure to include you and your family in our extended family, if you choose.
We are incredibly hopeful and excited about welcoming a new baby into our lives.
Paula and Matt
Hello! We are Matt and Paula. Our relationship started in 2006 at a friend’s wedding. At the time, Paula was living in Maryland and Matt in Texas. After an excruciating four months of long-distance dating, Paula moved to Texas, and we have now been married for over 12 years. Paula is a registered operating room nurse, and Matt is a mechanical engineer. We love adventure and the outdoors. We are constantly surrounding ourselves with family and friends. Paula is the quick-witted Euchre player, and Matt is a big kid who is always good for a laugh. Our home is filled with love and laughter. We dance in the kitchen, cook new foods, and spend time with family and friends. With everything we do, we see the value in doing it together and cannot wait to finally complete our family.
Our Home & Pets
We have a four-bedroom ranch with covered porches on the front and back. We spend mornings in the front with our coffee and evenings in the back watching movies or one of our favorite sports teams. We have a pool that is perfect for lounging and just over two semi-wooded acres to play catch in or tag. Our new little one will have swim lessons as soon as possible so they can safely enjoy the pool and the multiple lakes in our neighborhood. We live in a close-knit community that is always creating events for the kiddos. Mia, our dog, loves to ride around the neighborhood with us looking at deer. We also have a cat, Simba, who is always making us laugh.
Our Extended Family
Paula’s extended family lives in Ohio, her parents are in Indiana, and her sister’s family is currently stationed in Hawaii in the Army. Although they do not live close by, we all get together each year and video chat together routinely. Matt has two older brothers, and we have six nieces and nephews between them. They, along with his mom, live within a couple of hours from us.
Our little one will have lots of cousins to show him or her around the farm, how to ride four-wheelers and fish, and family traditions. Every year on New Year’s Eve, we build a giant bonfire at Matt’s parents’ farm, cook hotdogs and s’mores, and shoot off fireworks. The older cousins love putting on a show for everyone that has become a tradition.
Our families have always asked when we were going to have kids. They saw the love we shared and how much we loved spending time with our nieces and nephews. We had no idea the struggles we would face to complete our family. Our families are so excited for the next step in our lives together and cannot wait to welcome our little one to the family.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have tried for years to naturally conceive, and when that did not work, we spent the next couple of years trying multiple rounds of IVF. When it became obvious we could not conceive, we realized that if we were going to have a child, we would have to accept that God had a different plan for us. We have witnessed firsthand the joy adoption brings to a family, and we understand this is how we can finally be whole and complete our family. If you choose us, the precious life you carry today could give our family joy and a completeness we cannot achieve on our own.

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
