Although our previous adoption gave us some insight on what to expect, we still find it challenging to find the words to express to you our feelings. So, we will simply share our adoption story in hopes it will convey what’s in our hearts. Our first adoption was a semi-open adoption in which we shared pictures and letters. Our daughter’s birthmother chose adoption because she loved the baby that grew in her belly but was unable to provide for her. We are all Christians, which connected us instantly. The prayers she prays for our daughter makes April want to be an even better mom.
Our daughter is “fearfully and wonderfully made,” and we love seeing our family’s character and values reflected as she learns and grows. We are equally proud of our daughter’s strong-willed nature, which is a reflection of her birthmother’s inner strength. We always knew we would have unconditional love for the child that blessed our family, but we didn’t anticipate the feelings of love and commitment we would feel towards the birthmother. We thank God that we all have a solid relationship and a forever-bond.
Our adoption gave us a greater understanding and appreciation for birthmothers, and we know the decision you are making is not an easy one. It takes an incredible amount of strength and courage to choose adoption, the kind you probably didn't know you had. But you do. We are grateful that you are considering adoption for your precious child, and if you choose us as adoptive parents, we would be honored to have your child become a part of our family. We will respect and honor the commitments and promises we make to you, our children, and God.
We have been married for 15 years. We are both from Louisiana and currently reside in Atlanta, Georgia. We have an almost two-year-old adopted daughter. She is affectionate, fearless, and a natural leader. She is the joy of our life. Ron is the youngest of 12 siblings, and he has many nieces and nephews. He is level-headed and he’s always thinking and planning. April is an only child, and she was raised mostly with her cousins. She is smart, creative, and adventurous. We were both raised by single mothers, and we were both very close to them. Their recent passing is a great loss to our family. We vow to carry their legacy of love, faith, strength, resilience, and determination. We are committed to sharing those values with our children.
Our Home & Pets
Our home is a fun and warm family environment. We live in a two-story, traditional-style house that has five bedrooms and four baths. We live in a family-oriented subdivision with amenities that include five natural lakes, fishing, swimming pool, tennis court, clubhouse, and a playground. We enjoy gatherings and barbecues with family and friends.
Our Extended Family
Our extended families include a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins. April’s maternal grandmother is 80-years old, and she is the central figure of our family unit. She is a vital and essential part of our life. She provides love, guidance, and wise counsel. We also have very close friends who are godparents to our daughter, and we are godparents to their son. Our family and friends are very supportive of our adoption journey. They are looking forward to us expanding our family.
Our Adoption Story
We have tried to conceive throughout our marriage. We have suffered several miscarriages and failed infertility treatments. We have always dreamed of having children and were devastated to learn we would struggle for many years. About five years ago, we began our journey to expand our family through adoption. Two years ago, God blessed us with a beautiful baby girl whom we affectionately call, “Ladybug.” Ladybug is loving, funny, and protective. She would make a great big sister.

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
