We do not know if it is possible to express the amount of gratitude that we have for you and your decision to consider adoption for your child. This shows us so much about your character, especially a commendable amount of selflessness. We know this decision can’t possibly be easy.
We are grateful beyond words for this opportunity. The amount of respect and gratitude that we feel for you for taking us into consideration as parents for your baby is immeasurable. The only way that we could possibly repay you for this act is to promise to do our best to give your child the best life we possibly can. It would be an honor for us to raise your child in our family.
We hope that you will read this and have a picture of what life would be like as a new member of our family with two big brothers, ready to teach your child the best places to play. We hope that you can see that our family is full of love, encouragement, and, of course, fun. We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your time and wish you every bit of peace that finding the right adoptive family can provide.
We initially met at work, while going through nursing school. We started off as co-workers/friends and then realized just how much we had in common! We still do not agree on who asked who out first, but our coworkers saw our connection and pushed us to go on a date. Jen agreed to a date because she knew Phil was a great guy, and it didn't hurt that he had beautiful bright blue eyes! She knew it was love when Phil brought her to meet his family for the first time and started playing “Dreams” by Fleetwood Mac. She’d been obsessed with Stevie Nicks/Fleetwood Mac since the age of 5 and was thrilled to have finally found someone who shared her love of music.
Jen has her Master of Science degree in Nursing. She loves to teach clinical rotations for new nursing students and works as a Registered Nurse Assessment Coordinator in an acute rehabilitation center. Phil is the Assistant Director of Nursing at a county-owned long-term care facility. His patients adore him; so much so that once when Jen stopped by his work, he introduced her to a patient who had a picture of his family on her table. As managers, we love that we can prioritize our kids’ schedules and keep family our top priority.
Our Home & Pets
We have a rather spacious multiple level home that sits right next to the community park and swimming pool. The kids can run around for hours and never get bored. We have 6 bedrooms total, but the boys insisted on sharing a room. We created a game room with a couch, loveseat, and big screen television for movies and Xbox. Right off of that room is the “toy room” where the kids can play with all their toys and do activities, such as painting, drawing, and Play Doh. We have a huge deck that leads to our backyard and shed. They have a sandbox and kiddie pool out in the summer time, which is great for when we have our cookouts. We are a family of animal lovers and have two cats who are sister and brother, Stevie and Nick, a parakeet named “Bird”, a pixie frog named Joshua and a tadpole named Luigi.
Our Extended Family
Our immediate families get together for holiday parties and each year we rent a condo in Ocean City. We are always on the go; whether we are hiking, fishing, out on the boat, exploring Ohiopyle or Raccoon State Park (two favorite spots) or just relaxing with a movie and dinner.
We both grew up in families of 5 and many of our family members are also involved in the medical field. Jen’s younger brother is a Registered Nurse in an ICU, Phil’s brother is a dermatologist and his wife is also a Registered Nurse. His father even owns a medical supply company. Phil’s sister has 2 little boys and a baby girl. Jen’s father is retired from the post office and her mother, and best friend died in 2011 after a 10-month battle with cancer. Despite her absence, her love is absolutely felt and our extended family and friends are so excited to embrace the newest member of our family.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always known that we wanted to have a large family since we both grew up in one. Our journey to grow our family has been beautiful and challenging with high risk pregnancies and miscarriages. We know that our family is not complete but are also certain that our path forward involves adoption. Adoption has already been a blessing in our family, as Jen’s cousin adopted her daughter and we cannot wait to see what beautiful gifts adoption has in store for us as well.

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
