dear expectant mother

Dear Expectant Mother,

We are so thankful to you for taking the time to get to know us. We are in awe of your strength, and we will support you in whatever decision you make. We know that, in the end, it will be the best decision for you and your baby.

Words can’t describe how grateful we are to be considered as adoptive parents. We are so excited about the idea of raising a child in a loving, supportive, and open environment. We value family time and making memories. We can’t wait to spend weekend mornings making pancakes for breakfast together, going on bike rides or walks to the park on sunny days, backyard barbeques, decorating our home for Christmas, and enjoying family movie nights. The child that we adopt is already loved by us and our network of family and friends.

If you choose us as the adoptive parents, we want you to know that we are comfortable with any level of openness in our adoption. We are ready to follow your lead, and understand that your needs in terms of openness may change from time to time. We are more than willing to go with the flow. We plan to support this baby in maintaining a connection to you throughout their life and making sure that they know how strong and brave you are.

About Us

We met in 2014 at a town festival when we struck up conversation after ordering the same drink at the bar. We went on our first date the next day, followed by a date every day for the next three days. We knew very quickly that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. We dated for a couple of years and got engaged in 2016. Soon after, we purchased our first home together, and were married in 2017.

One of our hobbies together is playing music. We both grew up going to schools with music programs and have felt a connection to music throughout our lives. We have continued to play our instruments as adults. This has connected us as a couple as we often play in music groups together. Our home and lives are full of music and we can’t wait to share this with a child.

Our Home & Pets

We moved into our four-bedroom home in the spring of 2020 and have been working hard to make it our own. We live in a friendly neighborhood in a wonderful school district. There is a park just down the street from our home and several forest preserves nearby. The park has a playground, basketball courts, soccer nets, and baseball diamonds. We love going for walks or bike rides through the neighborhood. We have a twelve year old miniature dachshund named Molly. We enjoy taking Molly to the forest preserves to explore and experience the peacefulness of nature. We often picture ourselves going on walks and bike rides with a child. Our hearts feel full just thinking about this!

Our Extended Family

Our family members include our parents, our brothers, and sister-in-law. We are fortunate enough to live within a 15 minute drive from both sides of our families. This allows us to see everyone for the big occasions, like birthdays and holidays, and the ordinary weekend barbeque. We love hosting our families and friends for holidays, celebrations, and game nights, and the dining room in our home has plenty of space for this. We also consider our friends to be our family and are lucky to have an amazing friend group nearby.

Having family and friends nearby means that the child we adopt will be surrounded by a support system who already loves them. Our family and friends are thrilled about our plans to adopt and are ready to welcome this child with open arms.

What Led Us To Adoption

We have always dreamed of being parents but had some fertility challenges along our journey. Those challenges taught us how strong we are and how deep our desire to become parents is. We feel so fortunate that adoption is an opportunity for us. Several family members have formed their family through adoption, and we are excited to follow in their footsteps. We have the full support of our entire family and our amazing friends. We cannot wait to share our life with the child we 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!
