dear expectant mother

Thank you for considering us to have the honor and blessing of raising your baby. We recognize the courage it takes to create an adoption plan and admire you for your selflessness on this journey. We could never express our gratitude for you enough.

We are so looking forward to inviting your child into our home and family. We are excited to show him or her the world - lakes and mountains, cities and small towns. We look forward to the adventures we will go on, whether it’s hiking on a trail, kayaking in the river, watching fireworks, or just rolling down a grassy hill at a park. We will gaze at stars on a clear night next to a campfire, lick the batter off the spatula when we bake, and cozy up with blankets and a good book in the winter. We will dance in the living room, give hugs often, and laugh till our bellies hurt.

Adding a child to our family is a dream we have had for several years. We will instill the important values of love, kindness, grace, and self-worth into your child as they grow. We will encourage their dreams, love them unconditionally, and teach them the love of Jesus Christ. We will make sure they know that they are fully loved by us and by you. We are so incredibly excited to grow our family and welcome a new baby into our lives.

About Us

We are Steven and Randi! We met in college in 2011, started dating, and have now been married for almost 7 years. Steven works as a hospice chaplain and pastor, and has spent time as an assistant soccer coach for our local high school boys team. He is happy-go-lucky, adaptable, caring, and a great listener. Randi stays busy at home and also spends time coordinating a children’s ministry. She is kind and witty, and she brings a sense of peace to those around her.

We are licensed foster parents and have had two children stay with us over the last year and a half. We plan to keep our license active, but will be taking a break when a match happens, so that we can adjust to new family dynamics.

We are passionate about hospitality, celebrating others, and helping everyone we interact with feel known, loved, and supported, and experience a sense of belonging.

Our Home

We reside in Ohio less than two hours away from Steven’s family, whom we enjoy visiting on weekends. Our home is a townhouse-style apartment with a back patio and garden overlooking a large yard and small playground. In a quaint but growing town, we get to experience festivals, the fair, the farmers' market, and high school soccer games throughout the year. We also live just ten minutes away from a lake with a sandy beach, which is one of Randi’s favorite spots in town. Although our home is moderate in size, it has served us well in hosting others for dinner, overnight visits, or playdates. Our favorite room is the living room, which is filled with comfy sofas and chairs, where we enjoy spending time with others.

Our Extended Family

Steven is the oldest of six kids, and we enjoy attending his younger siblings’ soccer games and cheer competitions. We love to all be together, and there is never a dull moment when that happens!

Randi is a middle child, in between an older sister and a younger brother. They are each married, and her sister has two kids ages 3 and 1. Every six weeks Randi and her sister get together for “sister dates” in order to spend time with one another and catch up. Randi’s family enjoys getting together for the holidays and celebrating “Thanksmas,” where they have Thanksgiving for lunch and Christmas for dinner, eating all day and celebrating the holidays.

One of our favorite things to do every year is take vacations with each of our families. We also make a trip down to South Carolina once a year, where Randi’s parents live. Much of Steven’s extended family lives in Colorado, so we like to take advantage of traveling there to see them and spend time in the mountains. Both of our families are very excited about our plans to adopt. They fully embraced our foster kids and are thrilled for more grandbabies.

What Led Us To Adoption

Just over four years ago, we began dreaming about what our family might look like and the kids who would make up our family. Because of a variety of experiences we’ve had, we knew we felt called to be both foster and adoptive parents. We dreamed of raising children from all places and backgrounds in our home: some who may be temporary (foster care) and others who would become grafted into our family forever. Our dream is to love, cherish, and care for these children in every way that we can.

We continue to dream about the children who will make up our family, and are excited for the possibilities of what that will look like.

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!
