dear expectant mother
You are facing an arduous decision, one that we know does not come easily; however, that is not to say that you will face this challenge on your own. We understand the difficulty this process can bring to you emotionally and even physically, but we want you to know that we are so very supportive of you.
We want you to know we are very considerate people who sympathize and empathize with the difficulty of your choice. You are making what many would say is the toughest decision, and we respect your consideration for such a momentous choice. We want to assure you that your child, should you choose us, will be welcomed into a very nurturing, safe and loving home, and we will truly love them with all our hearts. We feel that you are brave and noble for pursuing this option, and you have our utmost respect and gratitude. You can change our lives forever, and we will never be able to express enough just how incredible this feels for us.

We are always looking to make each other laugh and provide a warm and comfortable home life. Robert is recently promoted to a managerial role as a Cyber Operations Lead, and Shannon works part-time as an Administrative Assistant at our church. We enjoy taking our dogs to the beach, spending time with family, going for nature trail walks, and being involved in our local community. Our daily routine typically includes something to keep us active and invested, such as volunteering or going to the gym. We share an interest in arts and crafts and feel creativity is important to embrace. Over the past few years, we have become more active in our church and have felt called to volunteer for the children and youth ministry services.
Our Home & Pets
We live near the beach in a beautiful area with plenty of art galleries, museums, arboretums, and natural attractions to visit. There are also numerous child friendly activities and festivities in which to partake, it is said to be a wonderful area to raise a child. Our neighborhood specifically is a very close-knit group of people who take great pride in welcoming new neighbors and making our neighborhood feel both safe and special. We are home to two short-hair cats and two dogs: one corgi and one border collie. Our state has highly ranked schools, and education is something we highly value. Our home will be welcoming, warm, and caring, as we want to give our very best to our future child.
Our Extended Family
Robert has a rather large extended family as both parents are remarried, and as a couple we are close to many members of both sides of Robert’s family. Robert’s relationship with his stepdad is very special to him since he did not grow up close to his birthfather. We are close with Robert’s mother and stepdad, his brother and his sister. The in-laws have bonded as well over the years, bridging our families closer together.
Shannon has a smaller family, and we are just as close. Shannon’s relationship with her family is very special. We are close to this side of the family and visit both families frequently in Pennsylvania to maintain those close bonds. The child will be loved and have a very large extended family ready to welcome the newest addition.
Between us, there are 3 sisters, 4 brothers, and many cousins. We celebrate holidays as a family, whether it’s here or there. This includes fireworks at the beach for the Fourth of July, fall festivals at the local beach, and the Christmas Eve party with Shannon’s family, traditions dear to our families. The closeness of family is very important to us.
What Led Us To Adoption
We came to the decision to adopt after facing difficulty with natural conception and infertility treatments, but we wanted to consider all available options. It was a physically demanding process, so we decided to consider every option, and we agreed that we both felt that we were meant to adopt. There’s nothing in this world that we want more than to be loving, nurturing parents. We are very proud to be on this journey together, as our extended families have also been so positively affected by adoptions and have given us great support on our journey. This overall just feels like the right decision in both our hearts after deep consideration.

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!
