dear expectant mother
We want to acknowledge how brave and strong you are to consider an adoption plan for your baby. We want to thank you for your selflessness and for considering us as a family for your baby. We will love your baby unconditionally and selflessly. We will provide an environment filled with love, honesty, opportunities, education, fun, and rules. We will guide them and encourage them to find themselves and become compassionate, loving, and productive adults.
We want you to know your child will have a loving home and opportunities to explore the world. We will teach them to swim, ride a bike, play catch, blow bubbles, and enjoy the simple pleasures in life. We can’t wait to take them to baseball games, teach them how to make the perfect s’mores, and cuddle on the couch as a family on Saturday night movie night.
We are excited to share our love of traveling with your baby and can’t wait to introduce them to different cultures, languages, foods, and traditions. We want to experience the delight in your baby’s face when they catch their first fish, hear their giggles when the puppies lick their sticky ice cream fingers, and dance with them under the stars.
We will love your baby unconditionally with all of our hearts.
We have both pursued careers in healthcare, and Eldon has also served over 20 years in the military and is currently serving as a reservist. We met seven years ago, and we found an easiness and a sense of home in each other. Over the years, our love has grown and deepened in ways we could only have hoped. Eldon continues to provide grounding, compassion, and a quiet, safe haven for our love and marriage to grow. Rachel continues to provide unwavering love and a gentle easiness that encourage our marriage. We love traveling to new places, going to sporting events, watching movies together, and taking our two chocolate labs for walks. We are so excited to share our family and love with a little one.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a five-bedroom, 3 ½-bath Victorian home in a quaint historic district of the city. We have a backyard perfect for playing catch, enjoying picnics, and having campfires. We live in a neighborhood filled with families, and it’s perfect for bike riding. We are within walking distance of an ice cream shop, park, playground, and swimming pool. We purposely bought this house to raise our family. Our home is also very close to both of our jobs, making commuting to work and home less than a 10-minute drive. We currently share this wonderful home with our two chocolate labs, Hudson and Clark. Hudson and Clark are gentle, loving giants that will absolutely love having your baby as a part of our family.
Our Extended Family
Our families are just as ecstatic as we are about growing our family. Eldon has a 20-year-old son who is super excited to be a big brother! Eldon is one of eight children, and his youngest sister was adopted. Rachel is one of four children. We take turns traveling to each side of the family for holidays and special occasions. Eldon’s mom spends several weeks a year with us, and Rachel’s parents visit several times a year. We travel to visit extended family yearly and value our families and the closeness we share.
Both families have traditions for holidays and family gatherings. We are looking forward to sharing these traditions with your baby. Eldon’s family enjoys playing card games like Spades and Tonk. We also have traditional foods such as candied yams, sweet potato pie, and Eldon’s mom’s famous collard greens. Rachel’s family enjoys playing Hearts and Pinochle. Christmas traditions run strong and deep on Rachel’s side—decorating sugar cookies, making and eating Norwegian traditional cookies and pastries, and attending a midnight Christmas Eve church service.
We have blended many of these traditions and added some of our own to create our family traditions, and we cannot wait to share these with your baby!
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always known we wanted our family to grow, but we struggled with infertility and miscarriage for several years. We saw several of our family members and close friends expand their families through adoption. We believe adoption is an amazing opportunity that will allow us to grow our family and fill a deep void we both feel. We believe a family is made from unconditional love and acceptance, and we can’t wait to share that with your baby.

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
